People With Issues | Love in the Drive-Thru

Police in Loerrach, Germany, responded May 14 to complaints about a domestic disturbance after a neighbor reported a loud confrontation that had been going on for some time. But when they arrived, they found a 22-year-old man arguing with his girlfriend's parrot, according to Metro News. The parrot had been barking like a dog, and the man became annoyed with it. No charges were filed. [Metro News, 5/15/2018]

@BurgerKing was looking for love in all the right places on May 9 when workers changed a Boston location's sign to read: "@Wendys ... Prom?" and posted a picture to Twitter. United Press International reported that it took less than an hour for the red-headed fast-food heartthrob, just a few doors down, to respond: "OK, but don't get handsy and we have to be home by 10." In a classic love triangle, @MoonPie expressed his disappointment: "I knew I should've asked sooner." [United Press International, 5/10/2018]
