Bad Breeder: Park Slope Mom Goes Ape Shit Over McDonald’s Happy Meal Toy
Was Park Slope parenting as bad before the days of 24 hour iPhone surveillance and guerrilla reporting? Judging from the entitled nature of some of the patchouli-loving old-timers I know, I’m guessing yes.
Be that as it may, man, do we suck sometimes!
Over the weekend, news broke out on Twitter (fine, one guy’s twitter feed) of a massive hissy fit going down at the Park Slope McDonald’s.
As near as I can tell, a Park Slope mom demanded her right to buy a Happy Meal smurf toy minus the Happy Meal. When the cashier kid said they couldn’t sell it alone, the mom started shrieking, “It’s the LAW. You’ve got to sell it to me separately.”
I guess the broad balked at shelling out $3.99 for a plastic toy but, really, McDonald’s fries are better than any other fries so it wouldn’t have been a total loss.
@EvilPRGuy (geek, atheist and vegetarian pizza junkie) witnessed said meltdown with a malfunctioning Crackberry so, alas, there’s no video but I gather it went on for a while with threats of legal action and general cranky-assed bad behavior.
Some of the highlights:
“The lady is pushing her kid in a 2k dollar stroller, abusing minimum wage employees, writing down their names, threatening to get them fired.”
“She was self righteous about “The Law” so her kid could have one, but not the kid making Smurf toys in a sweatshop.”
