Dude Throws Tantrum at Springfield McDonald's

  • Man loses his sh*t at McDonald's in Springfield
Look, when a man orders a chicken sandwich with no mayo, he wants a chicken sandwich with no mayo. 

But see, that's not what the McDonald's employee in Springfield heard through the drive-thru intercom on Sunday afternoon. 

No, the employee heard something about a chicken sandwich and a Powerade. Which screwed up the order. 

Ruh-roh. Danger. 

The customer got angry -- to the point that the manager informed him the eatery would no longer serve him. 

So the customer exited his vehicle, stormed into the store, picked up a cash register and -- with all the maturity of a toddler -- slammed it onto the ground. 

We suggest that next time he try eating a Happy Meal.

Police have not found the guy, who Daily RFT will now call "the Cashier Smashier." 

As we see it, reporter Jonathan Shorman of the Springfield News-Leader put it best: "The customer is always right; police may just disagree."
