Doug and Patty Wargo filed a suit against the burger joint last December after they were charged twice for a meal, which amounted to $17.35. They are also suing for $113.90 for the court filing fees.

The lawsuit started in November when Patty Wargo drove to a Burger King restaurant on Cumberland Parkway in Mechanicsburg to pick up a meal. The staff got her order wrong and was voided, but having paid through credit card, she was not able to get a refund.

So they filed a small claims suit alleging in their complaint that the company “said their hands were tied and we had to take food instead of cash.”

“People go to jail for stealing less than that,” Doug Wargo told ABC 27. “It’s our money. We just want our money back.”

The couple was refunded but Burger King still owes them for the filing fees. Want more food-related lawsuits? Here a couple bizarre ones from around the world, featuring some of favorite fast-food chains.
