Today, I went to a fast-food joint and ordered off the $1.00 menu to save money. Five hours later I go to the hospital with food-poisoning. After a whole day of not eating, crapping, puking, having tests, and a bunch of IV fluids, my $1.00 burger ended up costing me $2,000 in bills. Really. FML

... I can already hear the "You deserve it for eating fast food." Well, you don't. You're allowed to have a cheeseburger every once in a while if you feel like it.

i thought the cheapest burgers at mcdonalds was a $2 cheeseburger D:

Thats why Canada is unbeatable

canada is beatable

Canada can suck my fat meaty cock

^ I agree it licks hairy nuts. and I am Canadian and I live here :( I HATE GAYNADA

Wow really everyone still replies to 1 so people can see there comment. Ok well I am actually commenting on number 1 and saying that it probably was McDonald's because they are disgusting and do not clean there building and if you eat there you deserve to get food poisoning. Also this is fake because the place that gave you the food poisoning would pay for your medical bill if it was there fault.

Canada is the best country We have no enemies, more than half our population is not obese let alone fat and do you know why America is below Canada because they are our Ball-sack.

well sue the bitches!

well Canada is really awesome but America is really awesome too because of all thevarietys of places.and we shoud n't hate eachother beavuse we are almost the most alike countries out of them all and just because some Americans made bad choices it doesn't speak for them all.and don't stereotype Canada pls we are normal ppl

sorry you guys, Deutchland FTW!!

Mother Russia all the way

I love free healthcare ( Canada ).

Look up "I'm gonna sue ya!" By weird al that is ur song.

pfft sure, but you also pay $20 to do to dennys to pay for that healthcare system. not so free when going out to eat costs more then twice what it does in places where you pay your own health care bills

Uh in this situation you can sue.

Of course it was. They put whatever's in their sink drains in their food. He should have eaten somewhere else.

ahh that sucks man. i hope you feel better!

sue the shit outta them

Bet it was the most expensive burger he's ever had.

So does your spelling.

1st!!! Dang thos mcdonalds! FYL

It would cost you less to buy groceries and cook decent food than to eat that crap. YDI for thinking "saving money" is justification for eating a cheeseburger. Which is not to say "don't eat cheeseburgers". I love cheeseburgers, but I'm old enough to admit that I eat them because I want to, not because I'm pov.

Screw you. Why can't people eat cheeseburgers and save money at the same time if they want to?

Let's break this down. Meat is expensive. Hamburger buns are expensive. Lots of people actually can't afford these things. Sometimes, when you're poor, it's the only affordable way to get a little protein. Until the only thing you can afford is a 17 cent pack of ramen, you probably wouldn't understand.

2 words medical insurance

Three words free in norway

6 words: single-payer health care for America.

4 words: Canada gets free health care

#416 and in canada!!!

Move to the UK and get free healthcare and also university

Err, #440, that's not 4 words.

sue the restaurant :)

hootay for civi court!!

do you mean 2400? i cant think of any hospital tests that could add up to that much money but either way. that really sucks. im sorry

Just BEING there can cost someone $5000 a night. And by the way, it was $24,000, not $2400.

this is just like another fml only it was 24,000 instead of 2400 WTF

I suppose you said to yourself, "I won't get sick, I'll just save the money on health insurance too..." Good job.
