AIBU to ask the woman next to me for her gherkin?

I'm in McDonalds and the woman next to me has removed the 2 pieces of gherkin from her burger and put them on the side.

God I want them. The best bit of a McDonalds. Maybe I can distract her then grab them.

Could you claim you're pregnant and craving them?

You can but be prepared for her to give you a funny look and/or move away.

You can get extra gherkins on their burgers! I always ask

Get someone to cause a distraction whilst you snatch them up.

(her burger will still taste of them though.)

Sacrilege! The gherkin makes the burger.

She should have just asked for plain burgers, then she wouldn't have to fish them out. I'm the only one in my family who actually likes the gherkins.

I'd give you them if I were the lady next to you!

justanotheryoungmother Tue 30-May-17 14:27:23

Just ask, I'd have given you mine smile

Why not just ask for extra? You have to pay a bit more but not they'll happily do it.

Similarly, she should have asked for no gherkins! Loads of people do.

Someone once asked me for the sunflower seeds I'd picked off the top of a sandwich I'd bought...

IHaveBrilloHair Tue 30-May-17 14:28:36

Ask for extra next time.
I'd be sad if I were you, those poor wasted gherkins.

QuestionableMouse Tue 30-May-17 14:28:40

Our McDonald's will give you a tub of them if you ask.

Our McDonald's will give you a tub of them if you ask.

They could get in a lot of trouble for that if they're not making you pay for it.

I always ask for extra tartar sauce on my Filet-o-Fish then dip my fries in all the sauce that oozes out grin.

Ask for extra next time.

Natsku Tue 30-May-17 14:38:49

I'd give you all my gherkins. I hate them but always forget to order the burger without them so have to pick them out.

noblegiraffe Tue 30-May-17 14:48:28

There's a sad story behind why I didn't ask for extra gherkins sad

The only time I asked for extra gherkins I think they misheard and I ended up with a plain hamburger in a bun with no gherkins and no sauce at all. And it had been at a drive through with no chance of going back. I'd rather the regulation 2 gherkins than risk none at all!

noblegiraffe Tue 30-May-17 14:49:20

A whole tub of gherkins? shock

I'd pay quite a bit of money for that!

FakePlasticTeaLeaves Tue 30-May-17 14:49:59

Just scream "GHERKIN SNATCH!!" and take them.

OhOurBilly Tue 30-May-17 14:54:18

Asda do big jars of gherkins crinkle cut in a sort of sweet/sour brine. They taste exactly the same as the McDonald's ones. 😊

BaggyCheeks Tue 30-May-17 14:56:08

Just scream "GHERKIN SNATCH!!" and take them.

I almost choked on my werther's original when I read that grin

Noble Yes! Go and ask for gherkins!

Flipsticks Tue 30-May-17 14:58:52

You need to look for gherkins with dill, (sainsbo's do them too) they're the magical McD flavoured ones!

Also I'm really curious why would they be in trouble for giving away gherkins?

YoloSwaggins Tue 30-May-17 14:59:18

You know you can buy a jar of pickled gherkins from the supermarket grin

Best thing EVER

Flipsticks Tue 30-May-17 14:59:26

Gherkins doesn't look like a real word now!

Gherkin Snatch sounds like an unpleasant condition.

But noble do ask her. I luffs gherkins.
