Tantrum McDonald's Monopoly game mishap

From the LACK of details I have been able to glean for this one, I can say it is an urban legend. However, it's still something that I find amusing and could actually happen:

"On his 16th birthday a teenaged boy peels back the sticker on the McDonalds Monopoly game and discovers that with this one he has collected all the necessary game pieces to have won the vehicle offering of the year. He was elated by this, his 16th birthday, he will soon get his license AND he has a brand new car! When he gest home from school that day, he is horrified to learn that his mother threw away the game card and all the other game pieces. Worst of all, that was trash pickup day so there was no way to retrieve the pieces now. Her justification: that also happened to be the last day of the contest so she figured there was no way they could win anything anyway."

A lot happened on that one day, don't you think?

It doesn't quite work that way. Traditionally, to get the car the difficult property to find is Pennsyvania Ave. All the other green pieces are relatively easy and if he and his friends just started buying fries they would pick up the missing two pieces pretty soon. And in 2014 there is no car as a prize.

I'm fairly certain that the actual prize pieces are redeemable without the accompanying decoy pieces, but I have never seen one to verify this.
