Asked over 1 year ago - San Diego, CA

i ordered the drink in the Mcdonalds drive thru.. and the straw kept getting stuck while i tried drinking it that the reason i opned the lid to check what was wrong. I called the Mdonalds and asked to speak with the manager and he told me that he was sorry that happend but they have an automatic system that fills the cup with soda the cups come from the manufature and there is nothing he can do.. he then let me know that i can go back and get a new large coke.

    Answered . As disgusting as it is finding these items in your drink, there is no case since there are no physical damages to you. You might want to try to write to McDonald's corporate office to see if there is anything they may do for you, like free coupons etc.

    Answered . Yes, you can sure them but you don't really have any damages, apart from a little embarrassment. Unless you got sick, went to a doctor and experienced some pain or suffering of some type, there would be no reason to sue, as even a jury would not give you much money, in my opinion.
