    This is the problem.
    #911 is so over promoted that many people only know it as 'the' way to contact police when a crime occurs (such as in this incident) instead of an emergencies only hot line.

    She may have been wrong for using #911 for reporting the non-emergency crime, but she shouldn't be penalized for it because a crime had in fact occurred.

    If you had a problem with the temp of their coffee, why didn't you just not buy coffee from them?
    How would anybody know how hot the coffee was until they bought it? But I'm guessing the old lady never bought MacDonalds coffee again once she got out of the hospital 7 days later.

    " Just go somewhere else" is no excuse for selling defective products to the public.

    Given that the temperature was reduced and has stayed reduced for 15 years, I guess it's accepted that 180 degrees is better than boiling.

    The product wasn't defective. It was supposed to be that hot.
    The reduction in serving temp is a business move to avoid BS lawsuits such as the older woman filed, because Mickey D's wouldn't pay for her medical bills caused by her own negligence .

    I wasn't supporting the fact that she called 911; I was saying that afaik it is legal, just stupid, and that if she wanted to report it to the police she should have called the nonemergency number.

    Yes. We all know stupid people only came into existence a few decades ago.
