Everyone wants to get a cheap payday for something, and a lot of the time they try to get it from a big corporation.
Now, there’s a difference between someone trying to get a payout from something that actually caused them some kind of damage like fall or food poisoning or the like.
For example, one of my sisters got a small settlement and medical bills paid for from a place she ate at last year that gave her food poisoning so bad she ended up in the hospital for a day or two. That’s a good reason.
A bad reason is when you have a no harm, no foul situation. According to the pork subsection of Islam, if you unknowingly eat pork and then realize halfway through that you did, you’re supposed to basically spit it out, brush your teeth and that’s the end of it. You don’t call the cops or a lawyer.
A “devastated” Muslim man is demanding an apology and compensation after he bit into a pork sausage McMuffin that McDonald’s accidentally served him.
Hussein said he immediately knew something was wrong when he took a bite of the pork and said it left him “devastated.”
“I trusted them, he explains. “I was watching Judge Judy and bit into the McMuffin and knew instantly when I tasted it that it was meat.”
“The taste was horrible, I knew straightaway and spat it out. It’s just completely wrong. It’s a sensitive subject, it could happen to anyone, vegan or if a person is on a particular diet.”
McDonald’s has offered Hussein food vouchers, but he’s not happy with their offer and said it’s not enough.
Hussein called the mistake McDonald’s made “diabolical” and said the employees should never make mistakes.
A Muslim man has hit out at McDonald’s after he was given a sausage McMuffin instead of his meat-free order.
The former self-employed courier claims he returned immediately to the restaurant and spoke to both a female and male manager who advised him to complain online via details on the reverse of his receipt.
‘The woman tried to tell me ‘can we keep it quiet and deal with it in store’ but obviously I was not happy at all.’
The father-of-four added: ‘I am a practising Muslim with a nice, long beard and proud of it so they knew.
‘I’ve kept myself away from it [pork] all my life. McDonald’s is a big name, it’s a huge retailer. They shouldn’t make mistakes like this.’
He said he was given a replacement egg and cheese McMuffin and contacted the company’s head office which, he alleges, has since emailed him to say the matter is resolved as he accepted a replacement meal.
McDonald’s refute this and said it is still working to resolve the complaint.
Although the chain has offered Mr Hussain meal vouchers, he is not happy with the outcome.
He said: ‘I would like an apology and financial compensation. I’m devastated. It’s put me off McDonald’s and I’m mortified.
‘It’s diabolical for a professional retailer that’s worldwide.’
Muslims have turned eating pork into a cash pig.
