If you don't yet know of the "coning" phenomenon ...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WygNjMSllLQ

I went coning with some bros tonight at McDonalds and the cone was passed to the manager and she opened the window, and as i reached for the ice cream part, she stopped me and told me "Tell your friends this, the next person that tries to grab the cone like that is gonna get fined for vandalism, the cops are watching and we have your license plate number"

I proceeded to take the cone like a normal person and we left...

Vandalism.. really?

Discuss.

TL;DR - went coning and told its vandalism by manager and we left.

That manager is a dumbass.

You bought the cone, you can do whatever the hell you want with it. They already have your money anyway, what the fuck do they care?

Well, you're trespassing and messing with somebody's property. I don't know if it legally constitutes vandalism, but you're definitely breaking the law.

No they're not, they had already paid for the cone by that point.

Going to McDonalds and grabbing the ice cream on the cone is trespassing and messing with someone's property?

I've been to McDonalds many times, can I get fined for trespassing?

What property??

HIS ice cream cone??? Is this like one of those things where you can get charged with plagiarizing your own work?

It's not vandalism. You bought it. You can't vandalize your own shit.

You should get a shitton of people to do it in a row just to show that manager a lesson

Wait, when I first heard someone telling me about coning, I thought they were saying that you drive up to the window and hand them a traffic cone or something


That would be way better
#19
Your ice cream cone, you do whatever the hell you want with it. As long as you aren't getting it on the people or the building they're just bullshitting you

What's up with these kids coming up with complete unfunny shit and thinking they're cool for it? Just play in traffic instead of inventing shit like planking and this stuff, it's more beneficial for humanity.
#24
Or.. you can pretend you have hooks for hands and try to grab a cone, but instead stab the cone with your hook hands and eat the ice cream.

Wait. Are you pretending? Or do you really have to have hook hands?

Sometimes managers just like to blow hot air. My manager does it when people do annoying stuff. Coning definitely sounds annoying, though I'd probably find it funny if I were a fast food guy and people did it to us, though I could see it get old.

Either or is equally hilarious. Bonus points if you're dressed as a pirate.

Not too sure about this anymore, but last I heard, if you were a paying customer, you weren't trespassing.
and messing with somebody's property. I don't know if it legally constitutes vandalism, but you're definitely breaking the law.

He already paid for it, so its his property, and its not like he is smearing it on the windows or anything ridiculous like that, so there's no law broken.

Ok now that is not a good idea since they might consider it littering
#36
No. You've payed for an item which now belongs to you, and so long as you aren't damaging or defacing someone else's property with your actions with said item, you aren't vandalizing. The ice cream, as well as the cone and napkin, are your property once you've given them your money, and if you want to hold it backwards, you are well within your rights to do so. There can be no legal repercussions for using a product you now own in a way that is not harmful to anyone. That would be like suggesting that you can be sued for putting your shoes on the wrong feet or your pants on backwards.

That said, you're just being stupid, and doing what you're doing is stupid, so while you can't be fined or sued for it, you're just acting like a jackass. Like those people don't deal with enough shit at the drive in window without watching some toolbox grab the ice cream cone upside down because it 'makes them LOL.'

Coning is a pretty dumb thing to do, but it is no way vandalism. How would that even be considered vandalism unless you went into the restaurant and broke all their cones without paying for it?

EDIT: The above post pretty much sums up my opinion on the matter.

Just looked up 'coning'. This is one of the most stupid things ever and anyone who does it is a ****ing idiot.


Yep. Also, I guess it could be considered littering if you dropped something. If they were going to choose any crime that would be it. But why vandalism?
