Is it still okay to take the creamers?

That's it. It's time for tort reform by stripping citizens of every environmental and consumer protection they have and allow m'luds to flog them if they even sneeze in their betters' general direction. Cause Jeezez.

BlousyBrown: I was in a Taco Bell once when I briefly lived in Savannah. The girl working the counter was named Kimchi. She thought I was farking with her when I mentioned Kimchi was a food. It was...funny. "Kimchi ain't no food, it a name, white boah!" This was before smart phones, so I couldn't prove it.

/taco bell
//no $2 bill stories, though.

That is TERRIFIC!!
I was at a place dealing with a receptionist. She answered the phone and said "this is Brushetta". Classic and true.


I've seen an insurance claim for a guy named Golden Pancake

I can't go to work until I get resolution on the chess piece question. For the love of god, answer the question!

ransack.: wildcardjack: NFA: There is weird trend happening where customers take ALL the available  condiments and napkins.  I've seen it several  times.  I even saw a woman take an entire tray of sliced lemons at Chipolte.

I used to work with a guy who  took bundles of paper napkins every day at lunch.  He would cram rolled up bundles into all his pockets.  I asked his why and told me he did it so he wouldn't have to buy toilet  paper.

I used to have a full set of condiments, including a napkin dispenser, in my truck. My bad influence and I would be doing lunch somewhere, and we'd just take something with us when we left. Salt and pepper shakers, bottles of condiments, and yes, a big rectangular napkin dispenser.

I would like to also admit that around 2002-2003 I stole a rather large and possibly antique metal (steel, I think? It's magnetic) napkin dispenser from the concession counter at the Eastwood Cinema (owned by Kerasotes) in Peru, Indiana. I put it under my jacket and walked out when the movie was over.
Why? I don't know. I was 18.


Living up to your Fark handle, apparently....or at least on the path to living up to it.

It makes no sense.

But I still feel it. 

I remember spinning around fast in place trying to find the happy meal bags one day when i worked at one.  For 2 minutes.  During a sale promotion that resulted in a long line of maniacs waiting to get a limit of 10 per order triple cheese burger.  The bags had been moved 2 inches to the right. I couldn't find them.

If the dumbass would keep the whole bite in his mouth without dropping it on his shirt he wouldn't need more than one napkin.

I've seen that too, at a local gas station.  A woman had a plastic bag and was just shoveling the condiments into it.  To my knowledge she didn't buy nachos or a hot dog or anything.

Last I heard, McDonald's has it where they give you so many packets of sauce for so many McNuggets, and any extra packets you get charged.

That lady totally rode her horribly burned labia all the way to the bank.


Yeah, but common sense would tell you not to put a cup of hot coffee between your thighs to begin with, regardless of temperature.  She was found partially liable.

I would have put the cup in a cup holder, or lacking that between my feet, if I wanted to add cream and sugar.

Bathia_Mapes: vartian: BizarreMan: Huh, every McDonalds I've been in for the last few years has had napkin dispensers in the dining room so I can take as any as I want.

Bathia_Mapes: Same here. They're generally near the soft drink dispensers, next to the straws & lids.

I assume neither of you live in a city? D.C. isn't that bad, but the McDonalds in Philly would ration everything. You had access to the ketchup pumps, but they would't even give you the little cups without asking - people just stuck their trays under them.

Well, until a year ago I lived in Eugene, Oregon, the second largest city in the state & I never had any problems getting napkins & I never saw anyone have to ask for the little ketchup cups (don't get ketchup myself). The counter person would ask them if they wanted ketchup with their order & if they said yes, they put the cup on the tray.


Lol, Eugene is a large town. He said a city.

NFA: tripleseven: Why didn't he just steal the TP from work?


Seriously though, some people are farking weird.  Get them around free food, and they're stuffing their pockets, get them around free anything, and they're stuffing it in their pockets.

He didn't believe it was stealing.  We would tell him that taking more than he needed for the meal was essentially stealing.  He would respond that, "They're giving it away".  Of course I would counter that the napkins are available for your meal only and not to supply your home with toilet paper.

In short, the restaurant where we used to eat, now has a dispenser with only allows one paper napkin and one , fork, spoon, knife, to be taken at a time.

As I said, I've literally seen people fill bags of condiments.  I mean take all the ketchup in the bin and all the sugar and all the straws, all at once.  Are people really that greedy and stupid?  Apparently yes.

In Cozumel Mexico, I visited a good sized store.  There was an unattended table with open bottles of liquor and cups.  Customers were allowed to pour themselves a drink (liquor) to try out the various libations they had for sale.   I thought to myself, my God, I can't image how fast that scenario would go completely to hell here in the USA.

I think we're way too tolerant of greedy idiots here in the US.  We miss out on a much more pleasant society because there must always be a system in place to keep people from stealing or taking more than their fair share, etc.  When I was a kid, you pumped your gas then paid for it.  No gas station in this area does that any more.


Clearly the answer to making people more polite is more guns, or so I've been told.

mr lawson: Lorelle: It's not a weird trend, but it tends to happen in lower-class, crime-ridden BLACK neighborhoods..

Just say it. We all know what you mean.


Everyone is quick to pull out the racism card.  I live in the suburbs of Louisville.  Down the street from me is Jeffersonville, IN.  A wretched hive of scum and villainy, and filled with white trash crackheads.  I feel safer in the west end with the black people than in Jeffersonville.  Class and crime knows no race.

I remember grabbing 32 of the those paper cups to play an espresso vs. white hot chocolate chess game.

How did you differentiate the pieces?

If you used them to play checkers, I could understand, but chess...

Q, K, R, KN. P, B written on the top of whatever you're using for pieces...
/have played chess with less
//actually, we drew a crown for the King, used K for knight

WTF?

I thought you were using the cups (filled with either white or brown liquid) as the pieces?  You used them for a board?  How'd you play on a 32 space board?

I have no idea how one would play with white or brown liquids, aside from perhaps filling levels, but that would be fairly retarded. Doable, but retarded. Also, chess has 64 spaces.

So, I am sorry, maybe I am retarded.  You said you took 32 cups to play an espresso vs white hot chocolate chess match.
Unless there's some euphemisms here, I am truly not understanding the mechanics.  can you please indulge me, and explain what 32 cups did for you , in relationship to a chess match?
What role did the ...


Sorry, I didn't see this until this morning.

We had a board.  We used the ketchup cups as pieces, with K, Q, B etc written on their sides in marker, then filled halfway with liquid. When you take an opponent's piece, you get to drink it.

We weren't entirely sober.

McD's should be sued for those DINKY-ASS little soufle cups for ketchup! Dafuq they think they're kidding? Who dafuq wants to dip a 1/2 inch into a leeetle teenytinyittybitty cup and nibble on one french fry? You may as well drink your soda with an eye dropper! When I dunk fries, I want to DUNK fries. Not lightly touch in an area where ketchup may be possibly in the vicinity.


Put the ketchup on a napkin.  You can have a giant pool of ketchup to play with.

You could have used flavored vodak instead of writing on them. If you forgot which piece was which, taste it. Good luck with that.

This must be some set-up of a frivolous lawsuit that is engineered to rile up the stupid and crazy and make them demand we kill off more tort laws. Because this customer is acting like a whinging little fark who deserves a fist sandwich more than a napkin or 1.5 milldo.

Personally I'd like to see the U.S. follow in the footsteps of other countries regarding frivolous lawsuits. In some countries if you file a frivolous lawsuit & lose the court makes you pay for things like court fees, attorney fees for whomever you sued, etc. IMHO that makes people less inclined to file such lawsuits.


Or just adopt the so-called "English rule" in all civil cases - loser pays winner's costs.
