In Case You Missed It: Nugget 911

Listen up, McDonalds: When a girl wants her McNuggets, you better damn well hand over the McNuggets.
Miss Latreasa Goodman of Florida, called 911 three times on Tuesday because McDonalds ran out of McNuggets. I am so not making this up.

To quote Ms. Goodman, "This is an emergency." Word.

Here are a few other actual 911 "emergencies" on record:


How do I cook a turkey

Suspicious egg carton on the porch

Request to dispatch helicopter to retrieve son's turtle balloon

State park bathrooms need more toilet paper

Leaves in yard are too big

How many shots of tequila can i have and still drive?

The cocaine I bought is not good quality


Anyway. This is for you, Latreasa Goodman: I hear ya, sister.

My mother was a 911 operator for years and I could offer you many more but I'll give you just one...

Caller called 911 because birds were pooping on her car and she wanted them stopped immediately.

Yep. I'm not kidding.

Love the music video lol

My husband is a cop, he will never be out of a job because people just keep getting stranger and stranger all the time.

I have a question: Do you tip for coffee when purchasing thru the drive thru? I have mixed feeling about this as I have gotten the wrong drink too many times so why am I tipping for service before I know what kind of service that it is?

Swirl Girl said...

I am curious...how did they respond to the 911 call?

Hazel said...

my mom has been a 911 dispatcher for 20 years so i've heard some crazy stories about why people call 911. i read this story yesterday and thought it was hilarious. "they're trying to give me a mcdouble but i don't want one!"

Mary Moore said...

911, my husband wants to have sex with me again!!

♥ Kathy said...

OMG those guys were irritating! lol they were funny though :) I can't believe the cocaine call...seems like they may have used too much... If you ever needed to prove what cocaine does to your brain there ya go. And to Chris O: Idk if you're supposed to but I don't. :s I wonder now if that's bad.... :(

Jen said...

Seriously!?! Some people......

Lopez said...

McD's wouldn't refund her money, though...even though they didn't have what she ordered...although not 9-1-1 worthy, I can totally relate to her frustration (but not her grammar...)

I LOVE THAT YOU TWITTER. Love it.

Krystyn said...

I heard this on the radio yesterday. Seriously? An emergency. I wonder what she would do if her kid stopped breathing.

Christina said...

OMG... It must be the end of the world

She must have a cousin up here, if complete idiocy is a family trait; a woman was arrested not far from here for leaving a LOADED GUN in the restroom at Walmart.
She took it out of her waistband when she went to use the bathroom, set it on top of the TP dispenser and FORGOT ABOUT IT.

Lisa-licious said...

Oh, I am "scerred" for this country. I really am. This post was a real "nugget" though...We should all practice that song so we can sing it at BlogHer! I can do the spitty part pretty well already...
You guys: Mc, Mc, Mc Nuggets
Me: pft, pft, pft...(not sure about that spelling).

Tenakim said...

OK- I will pay extra to watch Lisa do the beat boxing on the McNugget song!

Cara Starr said...

i remember on Jay Leno one time, he was reading police logs... A woman called to complain that deer were being hit on the road near her house. She said the deer crossing sign was in a dark spot and if they would move it closer to the crosswalk (so that the deer would read the sign and USE the crosswalk), maybe the deer wouldn't be getting hit so often. LOL!

What happens when they call 911 in Afghanistan or Iraq?

Nothing!!!!

They do not have 911.

I guess we take the good with the funny strange sh*t people do.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Hey...where else are you going to turn when you are jonesing for some McNuggets????

Valerie(momof3crazykids) said...

That is too hilarious! Did you hear about Octomom's 911 call, how she couldn't find her son, he was on a walk with her mother.

Aleta said...

O kkkkkkk.... sometimes you have to wonder about those who call 911 for those emergencies.

SP said...

My SexyMan's Ex wife is actually crazy. She has medication which is she not consistant in taking. A few years ago when she was definitely drug free and wacko she actually called 911 to...
you ready...
Ask for a Nanny!

and she was fricking serious!

Type A Deb said...

You're over 900! Just 100 more to go... ;)

Paige said...

These kind of people keep me in business. Just this very week, I had to deal with a case where an illegal alien called the police on some dude who was vandalizing his car.

I guess he forgot he was illegal. And drunk.

He is now in the custody of ICE.

Good Lord

coffee said...

it's true -- McDonalds will tear you up if you're not careful... i had two Big Macs today in one sitting, and I feel like it was the worst mistake of my life

Kris said...

She did have a valid complaint. Ordered her nuggets, they were out and management told her she needed to order something else and refused to refund her money.

NOT worthy of a 911 call and made for a great news story.

daisigirl said...

I heard a little blip about this earlier! People are so crazy!

Michele Horne said...

Well, at least we know this is the worst problem in her life. Makes me feel somehow more normal when I come across people like this.

Shelley said...

That was me, calling 911 about the bad blow. Please, sister...it was an emergency TO ME.

tamilyn said...

Sweet! You can call about oversized leaves in your yard? I'm sooooo calling the sherrif.

Brittany said...

I was going to call 911 just today about the huge leaves in my yard, but then i started having some contractions, and got sidetracked from the real emergency.

8. Only in America......do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

If ordering from an online ed hardy Clothing store, she should either have tried ed hardy sale the garment on in a store somewhere ed hardy or she had better be buying ed hardy UK from a vendor with a great return ed hardy cheap policy. Buying from an ed hardy Clothes online vendor has its risks and ed hardy store they should be understood. The edhardy.com upside is that online stores christian audigier sale tend to have a large selection ed hardy dresses of clothing to choose from. The ed hardy Polos bad news is they can be more ed hardy sandals expensive, or the cost of shipping and handling ed hardy Jackets can offset any cost savings she might have enjoyed.
