Would you like fries with that??

Friday afternoon while driving to the lake, hubs and I decided to drive thru Mickey D's for some grub. I am not a huge fast food eater, we don't indulge often, but when we do some greasy Mc Donald's always hits the spot. So here we are in small town, middle of no where Missouri. It's a pretty fancy schmancy McD's with the two lane drive thru option. Lane 1 had like 3 cars in it. Lane 2 had zero. Seems like a no brainer to me....but what does my husband do. That's right. Pulls in behind all the other waiting idiots. Umm....why didn't we just go thru the empty lane?? Apparently the hubs does not trust the second, bypass drive thru. Uh huh. long as it gets me some fries in the end. Men are so stubborn! So after waiting behind the million cars, we place our order which was NOT that complicated and proceed to the second window. The pre-pubescent girl who was WAY more interested in her text messaging said our food would be just a minute and to pull into a parking space where they will bring it to us

I am not bothered by the wait. I worked fast food in high school. I know this means we will be getting fresh fries. Yum! So a few minutes later our food is hand delivered...I check the bag. Only one fry. That's perposterous...they can't possibly expect us to share! Hubs backs up, texting girl gives us the stink eye....makes us show her our receipt before giving us our missing fry. Seriously? We were just here...we haven't even left the parking lot. Did she think we were trying to pull a fast one on her? After promising her our first born, she finally hands us our other order of fries. As we're pulling away I open my sandwich. WTF?! I ordered a BLT grilled chicken sandwich. It says so on my receipt. It says so on the box. However this BLT sandwich has no B! UGH! The hubs said he would turn around, but I said it was fine. I sat and pouted while eating my B-less BLT. Stupid McDonald's.

Haha, I don't mean to laugh, but this was a hilarious post! You simply can not have a BLT with no "B!" Come on McD's people - get it together. Ha! They do have the best fries ever. Thanks for the laugh and sorry about your LT sandwich = )

oh mcdonalds, one disappointment after another. at least the fries, when you actually got them, were nice and fresh!

Idiots. I'm sorry. This happens to me all the time. No fail. Whatever I order never turns out right.

Oh dear, that's just not acceptable! I do love hot mickey d's fries, yum...with lots of salt...mmmm, I'm hungry now!

All I want in life is for people to do their jobs. Imagine how amazing that would be if everyone did their job the way they should, and everything worked how it should. Amazing. I mean, I do my job...

i rarely eat fast food and when i do it's never mcd's but this weekend i broke that rule. after running through 2 towns and back (the equivalent of 16 miles), i was starving and the mcd fries sounded so good! what can i say, i am a sucker for fries.

Ohhhhh I hate it when I don't get what I ordered. If I wanted a surprise I would of told them to give me a "Grab bag" of whatever. haha.

Hope your fries made up for the BLT!!! :)

that has happened to me. it first started with me pulling into a jack in the box by accident. then having to wait behind an idiot for over 5 mins bc i couldnt get around him. then finally got to chickfila. got home and they gave me the wrong stinking sandwich! boo! but still love me some chickfila.

My fiance refuses to eat Mc Ds, but I really love it. A few weeks ago he was CRAVING a mc ds sundae, and I definitely could use some fries so for the first time ever, he picked out mc ds... well, we get there get through the line, and they are out of sundaes... hahaha!!

I'm all about their nuggets and fries. I remember back in the day when they use to have that treasure chest of nuggets. It was like 50 for 8 bucks.

lol--I have a confession. One time, on the way to the beach we stopped at Mcdonalds. I was having a totally PMS day...TOTALLY. I ordered their new southern chicken sandwich, and when I opened it (I was starving, Mind you) had a freaking CHICKEN NUGGET on it!! It was only an inch big!! It was ALL bun! I got so pissed, instead of freaking out, I just cried. Like a stinking baby!! My hubby went back and went in...and then they gave me an apple pie for my trouble. Yea, I actually cried over mcdonalds. Speaking of which...I may blog about that someday. Good story ;)

Oh, sometimes we all get a craving for McD's fries, they're the best. I'm sorry about the LT, though, that's not good!

Jax said...

That is soooooo annoying. Esp once you've already driven off like that. Boo. I once got a sandwich that was supposed to be a turkey/bacon thing.. had no turkey. Yeah. Eric got me a gift card outta the whole deal and I used it to buy beer..5 minutes later. haha.. I think they thought I was an asshole. I didn't care.

Major bummer!

I don't do fast food often either, but when I do, there are always issues with my order. I worked at Wendy's as a teen and swear service was never that bad back in the day.

Mia Schelle said...

maybe if the girl would spend less time texting and more time making sure the orders were filled correctly you'd be a happier camper. what a little irresponsible b*tch.

Bethany said...

Yea...there's a McD's here that always, always gives me ice with my sweet tea, even though I request no ice. EVERY time. So I started going to a McD's a tiny bit farther away when I need my tea fix, they always get it right! Crazy...
