Love White Castle burgers but hate their too-teeny-tiny booths? What's a steamed steamed-burger fan to do? (See what I did there?)
Here's what one self-described "not humongous but a big guy" White Castle fan did: he sued 'em under the Americans with Disabilities Act!
A devoted, 290-pound White Castle fan is steaming mad at the fast-food chain, which he says repeatedly broke promises to make the booths in his local eatery bigger.
All stockbroker Martin Kessman wants is a place at the table. But when the 64-year-old walked into the White Castle in Nanuet back in April 2009 for his usual No. 2 combo meal, he got an unpleasant surprise.
“They’re stationary booths,” he told The Post. “I’m not humongous, [but] I’m a big guy. I could not wedge myself in.”
Mortified and in pain from smacking his knee into one of the table’s metal supports, Kessman limped out of the restaurant, and later penned a complaint to corporate headquarters.
And how did White Castle respond?
White Castle replied with three “very condescending letters” -- and an offer that added insult to injury.
“In each letter was a coupon for three free hamburgers -- but the cheese was extra!” according to a lawsuit Kessman filed last week in Manhattan federal court.
Cheese was extra? That alone is worth a lawsuit! Link (yes, with photo of the guy)
