In August, 2006 , I was travelling by bus and it stopped at the only place open at 6 am in Quartzite, AZ, McDonald's.I had no eaten since the day before and wanted to make tea in my canteen but they wouldn't give or sell me hot water and I had to use the cold water in the fountain .

They refused to sell anything substantial to eat at that hour and so I settled for two sausage and cheese sandwiches. I had nothing else to eat. Eight hours later, in Lordsburg, NM I had to be taken off the bus by ambulance and hauled to the hospital in Deming, NM with food poisoning. I stayed over night in Deming and lost luggage on the bus because I wasn't in El Paso to collect it and transfer it on.

It was diagnosed after tests as food poisoning and that's ALL the food I'd had in 24 hrs. I sent the bill to McDonald's and they said sure they would take care of it. Well guess what, the scheisters wrote me to basically say "You can't prove anything, we don't owe a dime". Well, I tried talking sense to them and getting them to do right.

They refused , so I called the scheisters in Chicago and told them if I got a bill from a collection agency for that then I would start telling everyone how they poisoned me and then refused to make up for it. I have been telling people all over the US just how they did me, just as I said I would. I intend to cost them a *** of a lot more than the bill would have . I have a pastor friend who had to retire early , partly due to liver damage from food poisoning he got at , you guessed it, McDonalds.

His parishoners and their friends and families and my friends and families all know and the kids I work with at school and the faculty and staff all know and I have been posting and telling everyone I can just how cheap and unethical they have acted towards me. If McDonald's read this then I told you what I was going to do if you didn't pay those nice people at Mimbres Memorial Hospital in Deming, NM. Guess what. I'm honest.

I keep my word. When I tell you I am going to do something, I do it.

Unlike some people I have met...........Pay the lousy bill and I will stop giving you all the bad publicity.

I ate a McChamp burger early one morning, probably about 3am. Next two days I've had diarrhea on and off all day and night, stomach cramps, intense headache and its still continuing on the third night. Safe to safe I won't be having McDonald's again.

You know I had mcdonalds yesterday. After eating a bacon and cheese burger I felt fine. Hours later my stomic started to hurt alot. A pain I cant describe. I tried to sleep on it but I woke up having to run to the bathroom. I was on the toilet for a good 40 minutes. After that I tried to go back to sleep but I had to run to the toilet again and I was vomiting for 10 minutes. I'm typing this hours later and my stomic still is hurting with a pain I cant describe. If i look or smell at food I gag a bit and almost throw up.

yesterday I had a egg bacon and cheese breakfast burger and went to take a nap, then woke up not long after. Had to sit on the toilet for hours trying not to puke. Stomach still hurts and it's hard to walk or get up. It feels like a *** monster is trying to rip my stomach open and jump out. :cry

I had a late night run and got a cheeseburger from Mcdonalds. Next morning...I was vomiting like no other. I was sick in bed for 72 hours! I couldn't even move. I was nauseous the entire time. Never again Mcdonalds. With all these comments they should really be more clean or whatever they need to do so that people don't get food poisoning. That should never be an issue, ever.

I had two Christmas performances last Sunday and by the time I got home it was late. The only thing I had was a banana that morning--it was a school night and my mom didn't really want to make dinner so we just went to McDonald's. Had a burger. Big mistake. I wokeup at 3am and had to run to the bathroom before I puked all over my room. I was up all night with stomach pain and I threw up three more times. Coming from someone who has only thrown up twice their whole life, it was baad. Not to mention it was finals week. Had to stay home from school because I couldn't get up or else I'd start throwing up more. I was dizzy, nauseated, and had the worst headache ever. Went to the doctor and they told me I had food poisoning gave me some nausea medicine and told me to drink lots of fluids. It's five days later and everything I eat is causing my stomach to feel sick, and I have horrible cramping and diarrhea. It's been a horrible week to say the least. I can't eat anything without feeling like I'm going to throw up all over again. The joys of a late night McDonald's run.

vomiting (3 times in 6 hours, massive stomach purge, painful), bones still ache over 24 hours later, still feel weak).

I rarely eat there, due to almost always getting constipation (except for breakfast menu)

Never again.

It wouldn't be my coiche either, a wedding at McDonalds, but freedom of coiche is something of the utmost importance to me as long however as that freedom comes not in conflict with the freedom of others.Freek, you mentioned in your article that in your opion a prohibition on alcohol in McDonalds was a drawback. I don't agree with you. I think we had better, instead of promoting the us of alcohol, discourage the use of alcohol.To conclude: I won't be tired to say again and again , that I am very impressed of the thinking abilities and the English linguistic usage of the pupils of 5TTO, in my opion it is almost perfect. My compliments to mr. Raubenheimer and mr. Reijman and of course to all the other teachers who are educating you to become members of society who can use their thinking abilities to influence people to do what is best for humanity.

Based on someone's comments, I think that McDonald's should starting giving out 2nd grade grammar books as an alternative to a Happy Meal toy.

i went to McD's on may 20 and had chicken nuggets, fries and apples, my 4 year old cousin had the same thing, me and him got food poisoning from it and i can prove it because it was the only thing we eat this day. i have a big stomch ace and my cousin kept on throwing up like every 5 min. McD's ur meet is expired and can kill people. i dont know how you people mostly get A's u are not clean and ur food tastes like *** when i tired it yesterday and you people are a rip of. my little cousin had a happy me so did i and there were like 7 fries each like what the *** i am paying for. I AM PAYING JUST FOR THE DAM TOY BECAUSE IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE YOU PEOPLE ARE SPENDING LOTS OF MONEY ON KEEPING UR FOOD FRESH OR GIVING OUT GOOD AMOUNTS. ;(
