A man who cannot accept that his McDonald’s meal does not come with a straw launched into an outburst that has gone viral on social media.
The incident is believed to have occurred at a McDonald’s outlet in Mong Kok, Hong Kong earlier this month.
“What do you want, then?” the staff snapped back.
Netizens suggest that the incident occurred on a Monday, which the fast food giant assigned as straw-free day.
The customer continued his unintelligible outbursts until the staff asked him to leave.
The customer initially refused to exit but eventually took off with his order in a paper bag.
“Alright, stand there then, take your time,” the staff said before the customer finally took off.
Hong Kong Free Press reported that even on no-straw Mondays, McDonald’s offers straws to anyone who asks for them, so it’s unclear why the customer failed to get one.
Netizens slammed both parties in the video:
“For the love of god, just give him a straw!”
“Customers are not always right.”
“The customer must have eaten too salty.”
“He threatened to stand and stay but he can’t even do it.”
“It’s a little bit of business.”
Yet some pointed out that the real star of the video was the gray-haired uncle, who couldn’t care less as the whole drama unfolded behind his back.
“Uncle is so cool!”
“I’m just looking at uncle.”
“He’s so calm.”
