Where's the sensibility?

My boy's father died last weekend. Yesterday was the first day my son decided to go out and skate again in our skatepark. To make his day a little better, I gave him $5 for food. He went to McDonald's and ordered two orders of french fries and two McDoubles, with no cheese and ketchup only. He went back to explain that his order was wrong (they had pickles and cheese).

He was told he needed to buy other ones if he wanted them right. He just lost his father, his skateboard chipped and cracked, he had no more money and felt impotent to do anything about his food.

He shook his head, took the bag and quietly left.

When he came home he was hungry and heartbroken to waste our scarce money on food none of us will eat (he's allergic to cheese, and my other son and myself don't like pickles or the juice).

Will McDonald's go bankrupt if they exchange two 99-cent burgers?

Is there any sensibility left in us in these times and bad economy?
