A woman called 911 to complain about waiting too long for chicken nuggets


Police in Central Texas say a woman called 911 to complain when a fast-food restaurant took too long in delivering her chicken nuggets.

Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said earlier this week the woman wanted the nuggets from a McDonald's given to her for free because of the delay.

Needless to say, the woman was not lovin' it.

Swanton says the woman was parked in the drive-thru lane at McDonald’s refusing to budge and being confrontational with employees, as vehicles lined up behind her.

A restaurant employee called 911 on Friday night to have police move the woman along and officers were responding when the woman also made her call to 911 to complain.

The unidentified woman was given her money back and told to leave without her nuggets.
