Today, I went to McDonalds and ordered a happy meal with a girl's toy. The high school girls behind the counter said I was too old to be served one, and I had to go home and explain to my sick daughter why she didn't get her toy. FML

'Tis sad indeed. However OP, I relish the fact that you care so much about your daughter, but lettuce not forget that many of the teenage pea-polls that you will meat working at McDonald'a are indeed aloaf, and often filled with baloney. Sorry, I just like food puns that have a peal, all though I often get canned for bad ones. Am I spreading this on too thick? If this were up to me, I would've recommended the seizure salad. It's a real knock-out, and it will help her feel batter. I'll be frank, and not let this go any furtur.

When someone buys food it doesn't mean it's for them. Sometimes people buy it for their kids or friends. For the cashier to act like a bitch and actually think that it's for him, she is an idiot.

And free meals solve everything! Right?

She shouldn't have to explain herself. They have ZERO right to tell her what she can/cannot have. Last I checked fast food was not a controlled substance (though it should be in some areas).

I'm pretty sure that not being served a happy meal is not actionable under civil law. Why is it that there's always some git on here that thinks the solution to everything is to file a lawsuit?!

Believe it or nit, this case would probably hold some ground. I'm not encouraging OP to do so, but I've seen people win lawsuits for stupider reasons. For example, a while back a man sued a car dealership because when the dealer told him the RV had Cruise Control, the idiot thought it meant the car could drive itself. He went on the freeway post purchase, put the car in CC, and proceeded to get up and walk to the restroom. Needless to say the RV crashed, and he eventually won the lawsuit.

Ummm, some kids deserve a special treat now and then. Now the FML doesn't say how OP treats his/her child while they're sick, but that doesn't mean she just feeds her daughter a lot of crap.

Lastly, OP never said what disease OP's daughter have. By sick, she could mean she has the flu, cold, cancer, leukemia, pneumonia, or whatever.

Leukemia IS a form of cancer. Why list the same thing twice? And if they did have something that is more serious than the flu or a cold or a stomach virus, people usually say so rather than just say "sick"
