McDonalds

Man Sues for $1.5 Million

They Only Gave Me ONE NAPKIN!!!

McDonalds
has made a new golden arch enemy -- a California man is suing the company for $1.5 MILLION ... because he says he only got ONE NAPKIN with his meal.

Webster Lucas claims he was stiffed on napkins at the Mickey D's in Pacoima, CA on January 29th -- after ordering a Quarter Pounder Deluxe -- and when he went up to the counter to ask for more, he was rudely rebuffed by the manager ... who insisted he already got some.

According to his lawsuit, Lucas -- who is black -- then retorted, "I should have went to eat at the Jack-in-the-Box because I didn't come here to argue over napkins. I came here to eat."

That's when Lucas says things got racist -- claiming the manager (a Mexican-American) mumbled something about "you people."

Lucas subsequently emailed the general manager to complain -- insisting he couldn't work because of the "undue mental anguish" he was suffering as a result of the napkin debacle -- and says he was insultingly offered free burgers in return.

Lucas wants to super size instead -- $1.5 million.

I cannot have a tattoo or piercing.
Once, a friend with many tattoos and piercings
advised me: If you get one, let it symbolize something
good in your Life...maybe something that helped you
through tough-times.......
Instantaneously, I blurted-out:
"The Golden Arches?"

Purely, frivolous lawsuit....COUNTER.

If I was the judge on this case and these are the actual facts, I'd rule in favor of the Defendants and order this moron to pay the attorney fees, which should reach well into the thousands with their high price attorneys.

YOU need to show this race batters face, and address as you showed McDonalds name I bet Webster Lucas has a LONG WRAP SHEET He should face JAIL for frivolous lawsuits like this but he is black and of course a democract. He was assuming the mexican-american would be deemed a white man like George Zimmerman so everyone would be on his side.

Just FYI, I'll be suing McDonalds for $1.5 million for that Ronald McDonald clown creeping me out as a kid.
Also, I'm pretty sure I didn't get enough ketchup once, so let's just make it an even $2 million.
