I’ve decided to start a theme on my blog for whenever I run into stupid, overly pompous Americans. So, here is another episode of “Only in America” for you!
Article: Over salted burger leads to charges
A McDonald’s employee spent a night in jail and is facing criminal charges because a police officer’s burger was too salty, so salty that he says it made him sick.
Kendra Bull was arrested Friday, charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct and freed on $1,000 bail.
Police Officer Wendell Adams got a burger made with the oversalted meat, and he returned a short time later and told the manager it made him sick.
Well, those are the main parts to the article..and it leaves me thinking.. WTH! Why do us Americans have to sue over everything?! Dangerously chewy starburst, coffee being too hot at Mcdonald’s, “missing” pants from a dry cleaners, and etc etc. Everyone is so damn money hungry.
In my International Study classes I learned that the biggest difference with America and Asian countries was that American strives for individualism and efficiency, while citizens in most Eastern countries are taught “country first.” Well, this can be argued both ways.. i.e Individualism is important (i.e look at China o.O), but then again, it’s quite sickening to look at the values we have.
The damn officer in the article above shouldn’t have continued to eat the burger if it was overly salted, but then again the stupid girl should have thrown the meat away. Either way… its ridiculous, but it surely isn’t worth a law suit, a misdemeanor, bail money or a night in jail.
