Do you want fries with that?

Average businessman, Keith Remington, is to sue fast food chain McDonalds amid claims that food he ordered via a local drive-thru came to him without error.

"I ordered a Big Mac with large fries, Diet Coke, and a fudge sundae, and to my dismay I found that when I got home that's exactly what was in my package," said Mr Remington yesterday. "I mean, what's the world coming to when there's nothing missing? I was shocked - I at least expected some chicken nuggets."

Management at the drive-thru were quick to respond to Mr Remington's claims. "If it did indeed happen," said Manager Graham 'five-stars' Hamilton, "and quite frankly, it's hard to believe, then all I can say is I offer Mr Remington my heartfelt apologies and assure him that were he to give us another try I'll personally guarantee to stuff his order up."

But one spotty employee spoke secretly to us yesterday, "We're paid too little and worked too hard," he mumbled. "It's no wonder that we lose concentration sometimes and a correct order will get through. Oh, and do you want fries with that?"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
