Now, after becoming an Internet sensation for calling 911 three times to report an emergency after McDonald's had run out of McNuggets, a Fort Pierce woman said Wednesday she is embarrassed by all the media attention.
"I think it's wrong, because like I said, it's not about no chicken nugget meal," Goodman said.
"When you feel that you've been mistreated or misused or robbed out of your money, you have the right to call 911," Goodman said. "That's the purpose of 911, so I thought."
But Tiffany Bennett, an emergency coordinator for St. Lucie County, said the incident does not constitute an emergency.
Goodman said she'll continue to go to McDonald's, but she also said she'd order with a little more caution next time.
"I'm not going and just giving up my money like that, no, but I'm going to ask them would they please check and see if they have what I want on the menu, and if they tell me yes, then I will order," she said.

My mom just left this job after seven years. It was brutal.
Oh, yeah, I can't imagine. I have 2 friends that are dispatchers for Union Pacific (actually the one just got promoted out of it) and they say it's one of the most stressful jobs out there. But the money's really good I guess.
