An elderly Virginia couple, Carl and Barbara Becker, were kicked out of their favorite McDonald’s restaurant for allegedly taking too long to eat their meals. Apparently old people loitering is now the equivalent of teenagers skateboarding on the scale of scourges plaguing our society. If you ask me, they shouldn’t be allowed to leave their homes in the first place. From MyFoxDC:
The Beckers are in their 80s. They say they’ve been having scrunch– their meal between supper and lunch– at their favorite McDonalds for decades. But on that particular day, they were approached by an employee who was cleaning. They say dust started flying, and the employee asked if that bothered them. When they told her it did if you like to eat dirt, a manager soon appeared.
Story 100% worth it just for a new invented meal. Tell me more about this “scrunch.” Do you eat it in place of lunch and supper or in addition to? I’m going to need more details.
That’s when the Beckers say they were told to leave because their half-hour was up and the floor needed to be cleaned. They say they’ve never been told of a time limit before now, but they got up and dumped out their food– laughed– and then left.
Glad they were able to have a good laugh about a crappy situation right up until the point that they contacted a local news station to tell the entire world it. Seriously though, be nice to old people. They come from a world without smartphones and internet porn, and if eating a chicken sandwich with a slice of tomato while sitting in an uncomfortable, garishly colored plastic booth is what makes them happy, then for god’s sake, that’s the least we can give them.
