Before we get into this - and it shouldn't need saying - don't waste the police's time with stuff like this. It's really bizarre.
Whilst most of us understand that from the get-go, this woman clearly did not.
After getting caught up in a queue for the drive-thru at her local Maccies, she failed to make the 11am cut off point and was told that she would have to order from the normal menu instead of the breakfast options.
Unlike most of us, who would be mildly inconvenienced and order a McNugget meal and a large fries, she decided to get the authorities involved completely unnecessarily.
Imagine calling the cops because you've been denied your McMuffin meal. The mind boggles.
Needless to say, the officers weren't too pleased about it, and gave the woman some 'words of advice' about what you can and can't call the police for.
Sharing the story on Twitter, Mid Sussex Neighbourhood Policing Director Darren Taylor said: "A call @11.30 this morning from an angry lady who stated that due to the queue at the McDonalds drive thru in EG, by the time she got to the window the breakfast service had stopped and she couldn't order a breakfast.
"The lady was given words of advice about ringing the Police."
Taylor later clarified the situation further - as if that was necessary - to The Sun. He added: "This, of course, upset her and she wanted us to speak to McDonald's about the situation as she felt it was unfair.
"We kindly informed her this was an incident which she should take up with McDonald's and was not a police matter and that we would not be investigating her complaint."
She's lucky to get away with a kind reminder, given the nature of the incident.
One of the force's Twitter followers joked: "Did you give her a frying!"
Someone then responded: "Knew there would be no need to egg you on with the puns,"
A third person simply called the woman a 'McMuppet'.
However, one person defended the woman, writing: "To be fair, I had a sausage and egg piece of heaven this morning and I would have been well narked if I'd missed it."
Narked enough to call the cops, though?
It bears repeating - whilst you may be annoyed that you've missed out on your Maccies hangover breakfast, it is not a police matter.
