Man Sues McDonald's... Because He Only Got One Napkin

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Looks like somebody didn't have a happy meal. 

A man from Pacoima, California is suing McDonald's for 1.5 million dollars. Why, you might ask?

The fast food giant only gave him ONE napkin. 

Shocking, right?

Webster Lucas, who ordered a Quarter Pounder Deluxe at the restaurant, alleges that when he asked for more napkins he was denied.

Lucas, who is African-American, claims that racism was a factor. 

His lawsuit says the restaurant's Mexican-American manager mumbled something to him sounding like "you people" after he remarked "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."

Lucas emailed McDonald's general manager saying he was unable to work because of the "undue mental anguish" and "emotional distress" he was dealing with.

Someone might be taking laziness a little bit too far.

Hey,
After reading this guys argument I think this is very ridiculous. This man is suing for $1.5 million just because of the number of napkins he received. At least he got a single napkin because sometimes restaurants do not give you any. Plus that is a lot of money to sue over something so basic. I was not there so I do not know exactly that went down but why he said that the person did not give him a napkin because of his race. That could be a bit far fetched because it is just a napkin. I think the guy needs to take a step back and realize that is just a single napkin mistake and something so small does not need to be blown up into something so big.

Really? Of all things to suit McDonalds for? You can normally just grab a bunch from where they keep straws and ketchup containers. Eesh, mental anguish/emotional stress over NAPKINS? Good lord... There's worse things to complain about then that. I find it possible but unlikely that the manager was racist, cuz he could have meant you people as in customers in general. Not the best customer service, granted but still..
