Mesa, AZ — All kinds of people were dialing 911 from a Mesa McDonald’s after one couple noticed their hash browns were missing from their order earlier this week. What? Hash browns are serious business, people!
Michael and Nova Smith were feeling a little ripped off the other morning when they realized their orders, a Number 2 and a Number 4, were missing both one extremely important item — the hash browns.
“It’s a meal,” Nova said in an interview with ABC15. “Just like you should get fries with your hamburger, we should have got our hash browns with our breakfast sandwiches.”
Nova claims that after confronting a store manager, and after being denied a refund or even an order of hash browns, she got a little pissy and threw her bag of breakfast sandwiches at ‘em.
“And that was out of frustration which I probably shouldn’t have done, but I did. Fighting over $2 of hash browns is ridiculous. It is ridiculous to have to fight that hard just to get customer service.”
Michael called 911 and headed back behind the counter to have his own talk with management.
“I just was barely able to hold myself back,” said Michael. “And if not for the 911 call operator calling me back, I probably would have went berserk on him.”
At least two other people in the restaurant called 911 as well — one employee and one customer. The Smiths must be one scary fcuking couple when hungry.
Michael and Nova have both been charged with assault — the bag of breakfast sandwiches apparently hit an employee on the arm.
The store manager admits that his employees made a mistake, but said they were trying to correct that mistake when they were assaulted with flying sandwiches.
