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).
