    Default 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.

    Was racism at play when he was likely treated rudely? Possibly. Is it worth $1.5M? Heeeellll Noooo. And a GTFO for good measure.

    Playing the race card after these "traumatic" experiences merely reenforces the stereotype. It's kinda counterproductive, non?

    Mind you, that woman won millions from McD's for not warning her the hot coffee she bought was, er, hot.

    Taco Bell only gave me one napkin last week. It must have been because I'm white!

    I have continuously had to request extra sauce at Arby's. I'm suing.

    I felt bad for that woman though. She was old, and got third degree burns on her crotchal region.

    So if she spilled coffee at home, would she sue Maxwell House? It said "HOT COFFEE" on the outside of the cup. Maybe this guy's lunch bag should have indicated a single napkin.

    I used to mock this shit all the live long day, but then I read more about it, and decided that she did have a point. She herself, didn't sue for that much, the jury just awarded it to her. She just wanted McDonald's to cover her medical expenses, but they were all "Fuck you old lady", and it went to trial.

    There's a reason that the coffee story was made to seem like a frivolous lawsuit in initial media reports, and the fact that most people view it that way isn't accidental. Its a horrible story and that woman deserved every penny.
