Too McLate

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.
