So I had this bad experience at a fast food restaurant that I went to in Ft. Pierce. And I use the term fast food loosely because that was the bad experience I had, it took far too long for me to get food. If a restaurant calls itself a fast food place than it should do what it says and serve the food fast without people having to wait. I had to wait almost half an hour from the time I made my order to the time I got my food, that's longer than at most sit down restaurants! I've even thought about filing a lawsuit but at the very least I will file a complaint.

Reminds me of a place in Ft. Pierce I went to that shall remain unnamed. Went there about 1130am, was the only customer, got my stuff no problem. Sat down and maybe about 10-15 minutes later they got slammed. Place came to a grinding halt. Sitting, eating, watching people having a fit and the store crew seemed clueless. Lunch and a show.


I don't think, however, that you have any grounds for a lawsuit.

File a lawsuit because your food didn't come fast enough? Ask yourself: what would be the grounds for such a lawsuit?

I recall a nationally-syndicated, radio talk-show host making light of some woman in Port St. Lucie who called 911 because McDonalds had apparently run out of McNuggets. Due to that viral story on the internet (where this woman was subjected to a healthy amount of derision and ridicule) he coined the term "the Port St. Lucie crowd," a negative term for the type of people who don't think very deeply about what constitutes a "911 emergency," or thinks very deeply about much of anything. I used to think it was an isolated incident that got immortalized for a radio bit...but now I have to wonder if he was indeed "on the cutting edge of societal evolution". The worst part is that people across America might only know Port St. Lucie as "the place where people call the police if their fries are cold."

Default E911 Fast Food Lawsuit

I never post here but I have to say, the woman in question ordered a meal and after she paid they told her they did not have the items she ordered. She asked for her money back and they said no. When you want a police officer to respond, you MUST call 911, that is the rule for our local law enforcement. This woman was completely right in what she did and she was then accused of misusing the 911 system. Maybe the few dollars was unimportant to some people but that is not the point.

It is true that if you want a police officer to come out you must dial 911 in this area. I've tried to call the non-emergency number and they transferred me to 911.

Yes you also need to call 911 for animal control. Everything is dispatched via 911
