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.


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

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.

The inner city ones have limits on everything, and huge signs posting how long you can loiter inside the restaurant.  The dispensers would disappear if they weren't bolted to the tables.

People would come in, order one thing off the 99 cent menu, and "eight waters with lemon slices...THOSE ARE STILL FREE, RIGHT?, yeah, and some extra cups, extra napkins and I mean a lot, ketchup, mustard, salt & pepper, gimme ten of each McNugget sauce, extra forks, knives, spoons, and gimme a bunch of extra bags, too.  WHAT?  WHAT?  WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT?  I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA!"


The customer is king. This means that the customer needs to be reasonable, fair, just and chivalrous or we are going all guillotine on their ass.

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.

ImpendingCynic: NFA: 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.

Thriftiness and thievery aside, does he know you're not supposed to flush napkins, because they don't break down as easily as TP?


Do you suppose he would care?

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.

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.

I used to do CCTV systems, drive thrus, and music systems, and we did a lot of work for a guy that owned 15 or so McDonalds. One place he had in Virginia Beach was really nice. We hung like 4 big screen TVs, they had a huge playground installed, real nice marble on the walls, 3 or 4 video game kiosks (with xboxs, and wiis).  Ketchup and all the utensiles where out for the taking. It was a real nice McD's. Now you go to another of his stores in the ghetto area of Newport News, and there is a 15 inch fuzzy CRT tv on the wall. Everything is dingy. There is no ketchup to be had without asking, and there is a sign on the wall saying something to the effect of "You've got 30 minutes to eat your shiat and get the fark out".

Bums liked to come in the morning, get a small cup of coffee, and sit there for hours getting refills and watching TV.

That makes sense for cases like this, but some other cases that are not so cut and dry might cause people to not take on big companies out of fear of being labeled frivolous and owing big bucks.

That was my intent. Allowing cut and dried frivolous lawsuits like this one tie up courts and we need to take a firmer stand on stopping them.


I am all for it in cases where it is cut and dry as long as it doesn't discourage other people from being labeled as frivolous that aren't necessarily frivolous. (for instance the McDonalds coffee woman from years ago...upon first glance it appeared to be frivolous but upon inspection it wasn't)

To be fair, it was pretty bad and not actually as frivolous as you might think. Here's the story behind the story:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=pCkL9UlmCOE
