    I am trying to understand why McDonald's is responsible for Greyhound's customers because Greyhound makes millions of dollars. Did I miss something?

    It was very nice of McDonalds to take care of Greyhound's customers. I hope they all said thank you.

    I'm sure the folks sleeping in chairs at the airport will be glad to hear this.

    I think she's saying that Greyhound should have called McDonald's on their own, but they didn't so she had to take "matters into her own hands" and, you know, do something about feeding herself.

    Maybe she's accustomed to free McDonald's delivery in Chicago? McDonald's feeding her seems to be a given for her.

    It is the entitlement mentality of those who are dependent of others for their survival. And I am sick of it. Sometimes, and for a very brief moment, I wish these ppl were expunged from society... Ok, feel better now. Rant off.

    I would have walked down to McDonalds. I would bring food for my family and some elderly ppl. The rest able ppl, start walking w/me.

    Feeding yourself is suddenly taking the situation into your own hands?

    Just goes to show McD's don't know southern people... They should have fired back up the breakfast menu and made Egg McMuffins (satisfying bread and eggs requirement) and sent milk. They could have survived much longer. Oh the huge-manatee!

    It's only 3 1/2 blocks to McDonalds from the bus station. I guess that's just to far to walk for some people.

    I saw that several times on the news yesterday. I started to post it but just had a hard time coming up with a reason it should be Greyhound's fault she (and the rest) were stuck at the station without food. They somehow made it to the station on the ice so they could be stranded. I could see it if it was something Greyhound had some control over like their bus broke down.
