And that is about right.
I don't go to Mcdonald's a lot but when i do (sounds like a frikkin beer commercial) I don't try to kid myself, i get a Quarter Pounder with cheese and fries...oh and i do drink water..
I just cant.
If i can (and i do) taste it for hours, even after i brush my teeth. Ugh.
Its been a long time..
It was a great commercial. :)
Thanks, i'm still waiting on the royalties..
Slow day? lol
You know what they say about asking a stupid question?
LOL... Who asks McDonalds that...
You would be amazed by what people ask in drive throughs. :)
Well, I did once ask a popcorn place if the salt they used was Himalyan Sea Salt...but that was in the middle of my vegan period....
You are evil. :) In my drive through days.. "can you tell me everything on your menu that is Gluten free?", "If I buy more than one sandwich are they still the same price?", Are the "spicy" items on your menu hot? "If I'm both a senior and a veteran, do I eat free?" "What's bigger the two dollar burger or the four dollar one?", "You didn't press the tabs down, how am I suppose to know the difference between a Coke and a Sprite?".. "can I get 14 waters? I forgot to order them at the speaker". " I want ten kids meals with no toys".. no problem. I'd still put them in the kid's bags and charge you 5$ more to put everything in kids bags. :)
See...you are hilarious...:) A book in the making.
Really people have no concept at all the amount of crap fast food employees put up with every single day. If somebody has spent a few years in fast food I would hire them in a heartbeat. Something the general public doesn't know: The moment you pull into a fast food drivethrough, your order is being timed. The overall goal is less than 100 seconds from the start of the order from you picking up your order and leaving with your food. If you take 100 seconds to order, the employees are blamed. If you take an additional 100 seconds to order water, or correct your order at the window.. the employees are blamed. If you spend an additional 100 seconds at the window checking the entirety of your order.. the employees are blamed. If you have an order with 20 sandwiches, and you take more than 100 seconds to get to the next car. The employees are blamed. If you are talking on your phone when you pull up to the speaker and you take 3 minutes to finish your call before you order.. the employees are blamed. ''Tis a vicious business.
I guess they aren't interested in boosting employee morale....
We'll try to speed it up the next time...but it does take time!
All that "employee morale" crap does not exist in a fast food environment. Speed= profits is lore. The more people you serve in an hour. The more profits you make. Your SOS (Speed of Service) is everything. Yet people will call and complain that the order taker "Rushed them through their order". Would never do it again. The accountability and overall level of stress are far more than most people can take. People go into fast food for a second job. Or to get anything after they have been laid off. They have no idea. :)
The irony is that we are also taught to treat food as holy...to cook with love...as food nourishes the body and soul...and the fast food industry makes a sham out of that....
I remember a guy, had his Bachelors degree in business. Had been a very successful general manager in a retail company that went out of business. He figured he would try out fast food for a year until he found something better. Do something easy for a year.. Was immediately placed into management and went through the four weeks of training. All smiles. Two weeks on the actual job broke him. He was found sitting in the employee break room crying, saying he just couldn't take it anymore. All the employees got together and made a laminated sign that said "the crying chair" and stapled it to that chair. That chair is apparrently still there with the same sign. The amount of crap those employees deal with every day and still fake a smile.. there is no sympathy. I still laugh when I think of that sign.
That is really a heartbreaking story. It is saddening to see how certain systems are wasting and ruining as good as everything and everybody.
Big profit systems have a "heart of stone".
Alot of years ago, i went to a micky d's drive through.
I asked for a hot dog, onion rings and a dr pepper.
I got dead air for several seconds, then laughter. I went ahead and got a coke and fries...........
I don't eat at McD's...except for breaky...
So...they don't have hot dogs on the menu? Or onion rings? Or Dr Pepper? Oh...I get it...you thought you were at another place...possibly Harvey's? LOL...
We have a place here called Tim Hortons...and I've ordered an Egg McMuffin...well...it's the same thing...,.
Hortons is in some areas around here too.
Kind of new.
And no, i knew they had none of those foods. I was just messing with the drive through girl.
I am afraid that I am not a fan of Hamburgers, Ketchup and French fries, and here in Europe, we have varied food "cultures".
But also big fast-food chains are increasingly adopting healthier alternatives.
