This from my friend, Ginger…

My McDonald’s Experience

It starts with…I got coffee at the Country Store and it was horrible. I had a 130 mile drive with a McDonalds half way….

I pull into the McDonalds and as I’m at the front door about to drop the last half of my truly terrible coffee in the trash I think “What if they have no coffee…How stupid is that it’s MCDONALDS. How could they not have coffee?” And drop my cup into the trash.

I walk in, walk up to the counter and say “I’d like a Sausage McSkillet Burrito and a large coffee.”

“Oh, I’m sorry. We don’t have any coffee.”

“WHAT? but you’re a MCDONALDS, how can you NOT have coffee?”

“A guy came in earlier and filled a hot pot and I didn’t realize we didn’t have anymore coffee in the back.”

“Oh”

“But you can have a latte or iced coffee.”

“What’s in the lattes?”

“Vanilla, or chocolate.”

“Too much sugar. What’s in the iced coffee?”

“Ice and coffee.”

“Uhm, but I thought you didn’t have any coffee.”

“Oh, that’s in a different pot right here.” (points)

“Uhm. Can I have an ice coffee without any ice?”

“Sure. Would you like me to warm that up for you?”

My eyebrows shoot up and I refrain from banging my HEAD on the COUNTER.

“Can we start over? I’d like a Sausage McSkillet Burrito and a large coffee…..please.”

    Ah, the Charlie Brown experience? I guess, in spite of not liking Charlie Brown as a child, I at least appreciate that a bit more now. Much more on some days. At least you got coffee, if you had to do the thinking for the… what do you call someone who works at McDonalds?

    Don’t… answer… that. It might be a sin.
