I did not tell anyone of this, nor should I for legal reasons, but long story short: I filed a human rights complaint against McDonald's because they abused me while I worked (in some things relating to my condition Asperger's), they try to strike back at me saying they never did any wrongdoings, I present proof of my condition (with a diagnosis paper from 2001) to my conciliator, and McDonald's hesistantly takes up a counter offer I made to them to settle the case with.

For legal reasons, I cannot disclose the terms of the contract between me and McDonald's publicly, but I can say that I have won a big victory, even though legally I have to acknowledge that McDonald's is settling the case with me while maintaining that they did not do anything wrong, which kinda pisses me off cos I know otherwise...

But anyways, I am happy. Otherwise, I also got a laserdisc player today, so I can finally watch the Urusei Yatsura Movie 5 LD I got earlier this week off of eBay

You know what I hate is when you hit the drive-thru at 3:20 am and the bastards have turned off the ice cream machine for the night! 'Open 24 hours' my ass! I want ice cream comes ANY TIME of those 24 hours, thank you very much. Fuckers!

Should this inspire me to go postal, blame it on my bipolar illness, and then sue the the victims?

This just stinks to me of someone making a few bob from their illness.

Whatever amount of cash MacDonalds gave you, you can bet that in the big scheme of things it was a negligible amount to them, just given to you to shut you up.

I would have thought anyone who genuinley thought they had been abused would have wanted MacDonalds to admit they had done so, to prevent anything like that ('that' being whatever happened) happening again, and also to keep your own sense of pride that you havent let them away with it.

Reacting in the way that you have, taking the money and running (infact it seems even more blatant than that - "give me a few quid chaps and we'll say no more about it"), seems from here to show that you probably didnt have much of a case in the first place, but used the 'I'm disabled' card to get a few quid out of them.

PS:
"I've won a case against McDonald's"
- no you havent you idiot, since you have agreed to settle the case with macdonlds taking the view that they did nothing wrong. Unless of course, the idea was to get a few quid from macdoanlds by using your illness - if that was your plan then yes, you have won. Enjoy your new laserdisc player.

I have to admit, I don't know the first thing about Dark's condition but from what I have seen of it so far, it seems the only real symptom is that it makes the sufferer act like a tit from time to time.
Wee Dark could have made a stand for justice but can you really imagine him as a spokesman for others with the same condition?
I honestly think he did the right thing and he has a shiny new laser disc player and a few quid in his back pocket to prove it.

fatty.

I think he abused a customer, something like this; could i have a big mac and some fries? no fuck off!

The customer complained and Inu Yasha gets fired, he then says he didn't say it or cannot remember.He then brings up his "condition" hence the law-suit that follows.

Failing that he got caught with his pecker between a large
Sesame Seed topped bun.




or they asked for an Assburger with fries ...lol had to do it
