    Well technically she did have a point - she was sold something that was not in stock and wanted a refund for that. Idealy she should have been either refunded in full or givein equal pricing in something else.
    She certainly overreacted and that hurt her case - but if a shop sells you something and then does not deliver that is something the police should deal with - it might be a mcnugget or a gold watch - what it is should not matter.

    Ah, misuses of 911...

    My dad is a police chief and that's one of the things he likes to rant about. Holiday weekends in the summer are particularly notorious... drunks call and want a ride home, some want police to find a missing pet. Some people use 911 as an information service, calling to ask the time of an upcoming event or to ask directions (in the town where I grew up people used to call 911 to ask when the fireworks started on Canada Day). Some call because they're lonely and want to talk. And customer complaints like our McNugget lover are pretty common too.

    That's not even counting the pranks like false bomb threats to get out of school, etc.

    Of course most of these ones are funny and hopefully more annoying than harmful, but one of my dad's buddies was murdered after he went to investigate a false 911 call reporting a phony mugging so it's not all fun & McNuggets.

    For anyone who doesn't know, you can be charged for calling 911 for non-emergency reasons.

    Wow.

    I love how this was turned from a thread about how stupid people are to a thread about how stupid Americans are. Only in Europe/Australia.

    I see this crap on youtube all the time.

    It's like, "Lol, that chick is so stupid, I bet all the other three hundred million people in America are juts like her."

    I recall there was something call a "hoody day" in an Australia business and the manager came to work with shoe polisher over his face while wearing a KKK uniform. Or the pastor at an Australian church cussing out a skater for being asian, saying all the "Chinks" should get out. Only in Australia, right?

    Sadly we hear about stuff like this happening in your country everyday, the news cast laugh about it. What are we meant to think? :p

    We don't think all Americans are the same, it's just we hear a lot of weird things from America that wouldn't 'normally' happen anywhere else.

    I think you'll find the (hoddie day) thing was in new zealand. And if you want racism from churches have a look at what certain Americans are saying about us lol. Mind you he's a nutter.


    how funny is that? :p

    The Westboro Baptist Church!?

    you're using them as an example? They're pretty much the most retarded church in America.

    Did you hear the second video? 'Americans have been sympathetic to our bushfire victims, except for the worshippers of this SMALL church in Kansas'

    These guys are messed up, but it's not like many Americans are like that..

    tbh when we talk abt racism, Australia and New Zealand takes the cake reputation wise just like stupidity is for the Americans on the same basis.

    I don't believe in such a crap. Not all Americans are stupid just like not all Aussies and New Zealanders are racist. Unfortunately, media tends to sensationalize stuff. I remember that stupid racial riots in Australia which happened due to some random incident concerning a bunch of Lebanese and that shit just got blown out of proportion by the media. I'm not too sure what actually happen in the first place tho since it's been N years since the shit happened. Guess you'll know better dude.

    With that being said tho, I truly wonder if the racism problems in the Australasian continent is more serious than the assumed stupidity problem of idiocy in US. :S

    And yes, Westboro Baptist Church is an organisation created by stupid ppl specifically for stupid ppl. I truly think that they are getting into the so-called "Pharisee state" now. Not to mention that all the while they were talking crap abt disaster happening due to ppl there destined for hell, they forgot Jesus' message abt repenting in the Gospels. I'm not too sure where, but he did say that ppl who died in a particular tower collapse and were harmed by Pilate in a seperate incident were no different to the other ppl who were beyond the reach of these incidents in terms of sinful nature. This is why he said that unless one repents, he will suffer the same fate of destruction. Take note that it's most likely said in the eternity aspect, not in a literal sense from the reference of the incidents.

    This is how Americans get a bad name here.For such stupid stuff.

    Yeah "McNugget" emergency she wants her fat nasty nuggets AT THE SAME TIME however maybe the very same second she was dialing 911 and making a fuss out of it hundreds of people had a REAL emergency perhaps a life or death matter.

    Fat ugly greedy American dumbsters.Sorry.

    What was your point?

    This thinks don't happen 'normally' in the U.S.

    why would they be in the news if they were 'normal'

    i know you don't mean anything, it's just that I kind of get sick of practically everyone hating America or at least thinking that Americans are stupid.

    Lots of political correctness in Australia. So even if many Australians were racist, I doubt most of them would let everyone know about it.

    Mcnuggets... she musta been really hungry. Maybe she is so reliant and addicted to that food she seriously feels her life is being threatened if she doesnt get her fatty food fix. *shrugs*

    heh heh nah mate. My point was, we hear about stupid things like this all the time from over there. It just seems you have a lot of wacko's there :p these people give your country a bad rep, hence the expression 'only in America'. It's more of a friendly joke than anything.
    We know you aren't all like that :p I guess when you have a population like America, you get a high number of weirdo's and dimwits. Sorry if that offended you.
    And for the record, I don't hate America, you gave us Coca-Cola lol.
