While patiently waiting for oncoming traffic to pass so I could safely make the left hand turn into the parking lot, five cars….count them….1…2…3…4…and yep…5 cars from the incoming traffic turned in ahead of me. Needless to say, the drive through was backed up so I decided to go in and order.
I do not indulge often, so I opted to “go large” for the fries, of which I paid an upcharge. So after waiting ten minutes for our meals to be ready (come on guys…you have been making the same twenty items on your menu for several decades, why must it take so long to prepare a Big Mac and a Quarter Pounder?) With our meals, I also ordered two drinks and an Oreo shake for The Boy. The cashier sat all three drinks on the counter along with the bag of food and said my order was ready. Last I recall, I only had two arms, therefore I requested a drink carrier for the three beverage items. The cashier looked at me and stated “we’re out.”
Now, I had to figure out how to: 1) carry three drinks and a sack of food, and 2) unlock and open my car door to deposit the items on the passenger seat. (With a bit of wit and a balancing act I somehow accomplished the task with no spillage or dropped food).
I was stopped at a red light and the fresh hot fries were calling my name, I decided to grab a few fries and this is what I found. Two large fry containers with one filled 1/2 way and the other 3/4 full. What peeves me the most…I paid extra for these items. The second thing…how can you be out of beverage carriers??? Wake up McDonald’s, you are letting your competition blow you away in the service and quality/quantity department.
