I told a story a few years ago about a Sunday night after church get together we did at Mcdonalds. About thirty or so of us just go there get some food and hang out. One night a few years ago we were asked to leave because the kid in charge of cleaning up felt we were being too messy. Of course the manager knew our pastor and called him letting him know we could come back that the kid was out of line and after a few months we did start going there again.

Until tonight that is.

We're there eating, talking, having fun like normal. Been there maybe an hour when a police officer comes in talks to the people behind the counter then comes over to us and says they were notified of a noise complaint about us. That the kids were running around too much and making too much noise and we were asked to leave.

So we've been kicked out of Mcdonalds twice, yeah, we're that church now.

Hey Man, when your church group gets kicked out of McDonald's twice, you've really got something going on!

They had to call the police on you?? A church group? That is absurd. I suggest you switch to Burger King. I know someone else was rejected too. I think you are in good company.

Blame in on the clown, Ronald. If they want quiet suggest they switch their mascot to monk who has taken a vow of silence.

I've been to quite a few so-called family restaurants that had a problem actually having families in them. Last time I checked McDonalds was not supposed to sound like a library.

When my kids were little, they did horrible stuff at McDonald's. This resulted in my writing a silly poem
(yeah, I was THAT mummy, the one who eventually published a book of poems about stuff her kids did), written from my son's point of view, that went like this:

They won't let us into McDonald's.
They wait for us now at the door.
It's not what they think we may do there,
It's what we have done there before.

My very first time at McDonald's,
I danced till my diaper fell down.
It was full, by the way, and its contents
Quite quickly were spread all around.

It goes on to chronicle how his sister went into the bathroom, locked all the stall doors and crawled out under the door. Yes, the sister who is now a child psychologist!

His friend loved ketchup and his favourite trick with the McDonald's ketchup packets was to squeeze them until they burst. Usually the ketchup went on his burger, but one day, not. It went on back of the white angora sweater worn by the woman in the next booth.

The poem ends with:

They won't let us into McDonald's.
They wait for us now at the door.
They hand us some Burger King coupons
And ask us to come back NO MORE!

We were never actually kicked out or banned, though--that makes a good story better--so you guys must have been doing something worse than the above. Or, we just had an extremely tolerant McDonald's.

Lynnm - LOVE your poetry! Did you really publish a book? I would buy it!

lynnm1947 posted 11/18/2013 09:56 AM

It's out of print now. That was many, many moons ago. Occasionally a copy shows up on E-bay.

OMG, don't do that! Our BK is open 24 hours and they still huff and roll their eyes when we walk in the door. "You mean I have to drop more fries in the fryer??? Uuuuuugh. It sucks having a job and actually having to work while there!"

These days the poem about my daughter watching TV naked, standing on her head would probably count as kiddie porn. In one poem, she betrays an uncanny future flash when she remarks that because her brother never learned to crawl, but got about on his heels and the back of his head, that that's the reason he's not very good at math! She was four or five at the time. Now that's a "child" psychologist.

Sorry to T/J your thread, Linger!

Call corporate hq and report them. That McD's may be owned by a franchisee but they still have to answer to corporate. I promise you they'll get a smackdown from corporate for risking bad PR by calling the cops on a church group because the kids were too noisy (AYKM???).

simplydevastated posted 11/18/2013 13:32 PM

Linger, that is absolutely ridiculous! So I guess they don't host birthday parties there anymore because that would be too noisy as well. You're a paying customer and are allowed to be there just like everyone else. I don't know how may McD's I've been in and they've ALL been noisy with families. This is McD's we're talking about after all, not some five star restaurant in DC.

If anything, the manager should have come over to your group and politely asked if the "volume" could be lowered, but again, it's McD's.

Next time try a Chick-Fil-A.

That was good Lynnm.

@simplydevastated, I started thinking last night it would be great if we had a chick-fil-a in town, we could turn the kids loose on the indoor play area, I was thinking how totally sweet that would be until I remembered they aren't open on Sunday.

I guess it's a good thing we finally got a taco bell in town, it opened Nov. 1st and I can foresee them gaining some additional business on Sunday night now.

You would think that if any night was going to get us kicked out it would have been a few months ago. One guy from church has four kids between 1 and 6. Well the oldest had gotten a happy meal toy which he shoved into the ice dispenser to the point a manager had to come and remove the ice shoot from the front to retrieve the ball. All the while his 2 going on 3yo brother had went to the bathroom on himself at church, they were working on potty training him at the time and they didn't have any diapers or other underwear so they just put him in a clean pair of shorts. He dropped a deuce which rolled out of said shorts and onto the floor at Mcdonalds.

See if any night was going to get us kicked out I would have picked that one.

Geez Linger... You guys are just all kinds of trouble!

So you're saying that night didn't get you kicked out? Geez, what did the kids do to get you guys kicked out then? Was it something like this?

simplydevastated posted 11/19/2013 10:13 AM

Sorry, I forgot Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday's.

After reading this, I picture the McD's crew ducking down behind the counter pretending no one is there.

Love the picture, Brandon

Try Steak N' Shake. Food is better and they seem to cater to families. Lots of seating and kids eat free on Saturday. I LOVE Steak n' Shake!

Yep, laser eyes got us.
