When Nancie and Martyce Murphy of Naperville, Illinois, went to their local Burger King this weekend, they asked the manager to make sure their food would be warm.
As it turned out, it was the packaging that really got them hot under the collar.
The Murphys stopped in at Burger King on Sunday for a Whopper, a Whopper Jr., fries, onion rings and some drinks.
Shortly after they got their order, they made an unwelcome discovery: Someone had scrawled the words “FUCK YOU” on both their wrappers.
Needless to say, the couple had a whopper of a beef with the message.
“When you pay for something, you want something good,” Martyce told ABC 7 Chicago. “So to get that, that was uncalled for.”
Nancie called the restaurant, but the manager denied everything, she said.
“I told him what had happened and he said, ‘I don’t believe you, there’s no way that could have happened,’” she told ABC 7.
The next day, Nancie spoke to someone higher on the Burger King food chain.
After a brief investigation, the supervisor told her that an employee had admitted to writing the messages, according to UPI. The employee has reportedly been fired.
The worker responsible for the obscene wrappers reportedly told officials they’d been having a bad day, and that they’d taken it out on the customers.
The employee may be gone, but the Murphys say they plan never to eat at Burger King again.
So much for having it your way.
