Man sues McDonald’s because he only got one napkin

A California man sued McDonald’s for $1.5 million because one of their managers refused to give him extra napkins.

Webster Lucas claimed he ordered food January 29, 2014 at the McDonald’s in Pacoima, California.  According to TMZ, Lucas said he noticed he only got one napkin.  When he went to the counter and asked for more napkins, he says things got ugly.

Lucas’ lawsuit claims the McDonald’s manager insisted he already got extra napkins, and refused to give him more.  Lucas claims the manager also mumbled a racist comment.

Lucas said he was insulted when his complaint email to McDonald’s was answered with an offer for free food.   Lucas claimed he suffered “undue mental anguish” and was unable to work because of the emotional distress the incident caused.

Lucas’ lawsuit asks for $1.5 million.

    You have got to be kidding me… “undue mental anguish?” Jesus, are we just a bunch of cry baby these days?

    this is ridiculous. People are getting to sue happy. Really Mental Anguish just cause you only got one napkin and mumbled a racial slur I’m so sick and tired of the racist b.s. ? I usually get way to many napkins also why didn’t he just get napkins from the napkin holder instead of going up to the counter? I think there is more to this story than what the guy is protraying. I hope he don’t get the money, and they laugh this out of court!!

    If he can “walk up to the counter” to ask for my why couldn’t he just walk up to the ketchup/drink station where they keep…. you guessed it… NAPKINS!!!!

    The article doesn’t mention it so I’ll pose the question. Mr. Lucas says that he’s been unable to work due to the “Mental Anguish”. What was his job at the time of this incident?

    …just wondering…

    tHE SAD PART OF THIS IS THAT THERE IS SOME P.O.S. JUDGE OUT THERE THAT WILL ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN, JUST LIKE THE HOT COFFEE LAWSUIT…OR WORSE, MCDONALDS WILL FOLD UP AND SETTLE OUT OF COURT, THUS ALLOWING THIS DUDE TO ‘RETIE AND LIVE THE GOOD LIFE!’

      The hot coffee lawsuit was legitimate. Look it up. They changed their policies after that. The coffee used to be heated up to unreasonably high temps and that lady suffered 3rd degree burns and got skin grafts.

      This guy is just a whiner.

    II am going to sue this man for undue suffering and stress having read about this ludicrous story. I hope he gets something then he can afford to pay me.
