Sometimes when I’m really hungry, I’ve been known to threaten some pretty hefty trades for food. For an avocado, I’d give up makeup for a week. I’d gladly trade online shopping for mashed potatoes. I’d even give someone my most favorite J. Crew dress for yellow cake with chocolate icing. This woman, an alleged prostitute living homeless in Los Angeles, was so hungry that she promised sex to a McDonald’s drive-thru customers in exchange for Chicken McNuggets.
Burbank police took her into custody the night of January 11 and charged her with prostitution. Initial reports claimed that Khadijah Baseer, 31, approached several cars in the drive-thru, making the same offer again and again. Later, Sgt. Darin Ryburn reported that thought she asked various customers for free McNuggets, she only offered her services to the manager of the McDonald’s. After declining her offer, he finally called in back up. Evidently, she had caused disturbances at this location before, thought the manager declined to discuss them further.

What would you do if you found yourself in her shoes? What would you give up for food? What food would you give it up for?
