Let me set the scene for you. It’s 3 AM on a week night, and you and your BFF suddenly get a craving for some cheeseburgers. So you hop in your ride, cruise down to the local Mickey D’s and pull into to the drive-thru lane. The over-worked, under-paid employee on the other end of the intercom takes your order, and when you pull around you’re handed your food…but without the bacon you’d ordered. What do you do? Well, obviously the best option is to pull your heater and put a round through the building. This is, after all, bacon we’re talking about . . .
From The Smoking Gun:
According to cops, after ordering at the drive-thru window, the 29-year-old Torres and another woman “complained that the order was incorrect.” When a McDonald’s employee stepped away from the window, “one shot was fired from the suspect vehicle.”
Torres was reportedly upset because she expected bacon on the sandwich she ordered.
God knows that bacon is delicious. But – a word to the wise – it’s not worth a felony charge. While a dearth of smoked pork products is certainly cause for concern, it doesn’t constitute an actual life-or-death situation. To avoid prison and large legal bills, keep your gun holstered unless and until your life is actually threatened.
Shaneka Monique Torres is currently enjoying her stay in a (no doubt bacon-less) Michigan correctional facility awaiting trial on a smattering of charges. Hopefully the IGOTD award we’re sending along will keep her company.
