lawsuits have come and mcdonalds almost always loses. God forbid you make a decision and hold yourself liable for your actions , rather than dish out the blame to any sources other than yourself. mcdonalds is to blame for my obesity, or my coffee was too hot and burned me... shut the f**k up and start taking responsibilty for your actions; if your fat, exercise and stop eating mcdonalds. if you dont want your coffee hot make it yourself etc...
the argument is mcdonalds vs tacobell, and lawsuits do not matter to me when considering a restaurant for my next meal because our contry is so filled with obsurdly frivilous lawsuits that have no cap and limitation to the harm they are consequently affecting on the entire system of law, which inevitably trickels down to you and me.
whats important to me when choosing one place over the other, is how satisfied i am with the meal. mcdoanlds has fries that are amazing and nuggets that are the best in the world especially with the hot mustard or barbeque sauce, sick cheese burgers, a broader menu and most importantly they serve COKE not pepsi, like taco bell.
