An Arizona couple is facing assault charges after they called 911 when McDonald’s employees forgot to include hash browns with their order. (In their defense, McDonald’s hash browns are incredibly delicious.)
Michael and Nova Smith ordered hash browns with their No. 2 and No. 4, respectively, on Monday, but didn’t receive them. Instead of simply asking for their missing hash browns, Michael went behind the counter and Nova (of course her name is Nova) threw her purse and McDonald’s bag at employees, according to ABC 15.
“It’s a meal,” Nova told ABC 15. “Just like you should get fries with your hamburger, we should have got our hash browns with our breakfast sandwiches.”
She claims that McDonald’s would not give her hash browns or her money back, so she started throwing things.
“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,”she said.
For Michael’s part, he went behind the counter to confront the manager and then called 911 to tell them about the Great Hash Brown Debacle of 2013.
“I just was barely able to hold myself back,” Michael said. “And if not for the 911 call operator calling me back, I probably would have went berserk on him.”
