When Melodi Dushane pulled up to her local McDonald’s drive-thru at 10:30am one morning, all she was hoping for was a simple order of Chicken McNuggets.
Unfortunately for Melodi, Chicken McNuggets aren’t available on the McDonald’s morning menu. Even more unfortunately for the staff at the drive-thru window, Melodi wasn’t interested in taking no for answer.
After hearing that her craving was going to go unconquered, Melodi lost it completely. She climbed out of her car, tried to climb through the drive-thru window, pounded on the glass, and eventually smashed through the window. Before making a quick getaway, she made sure her complaint was taken seriously by the McDonald’s staff member by threatening to:
- “go Super Saiyan” (a reference to Dragon Ball, a Japanese manga series)
- “assume (her) ultimate form” (another reference to manga series like Digimon
- “eat (her) f**king face, digest it and s**t it out into the gutter”
Unsurprisingly, this delightful diner was arrested soon after the incident and jailed for 60 days. Although she admitted to being drunk at the time, she pleaded not guilty (really?).
As for the charge of being a raving loon, I don’t think we need a judge or jury to declare a verdict. What we do need, though, are Chicken McNuggets on the McDonald’s menu 24/7. Just in case.
