  • This is no way to behave at a McDonald’s drive-thru: A drunk driver in Sydney, Australia threatened staff and yelled “I want my fucking nuggets” after they told him the 200 McNuggets he ordered were unavailable. He walked away with 200 hash browns instead, but returned to demand a refund for 200 large fries and 200 Big Macs. He was later fined $1,000 for the incident. In court, he claimed to be vegan.
