This story was reported in the Omaha World Herald newspaper a couple of years ago. I have changed the original narrative into a verbal exchange, for effect.
A man approached an employee working the counter at a McDonald’s, and pulled a gun.
“This is a hold-up, gimme all the money in the register.”
Worker: “I’m sorry, sir, but the register cannot be opened without a customer order.”
“Well…gimme an Egg McMuffin.”
Worker: “I’m sorry, sir, but our breakfast menu is no longer available.”
The man walked away.
