A fast food enigma

Postby ironman » Wed Oct 27, 2004 3:05 pm

So I went to McDonalds for lunch and ordered a quarter-pounder with cheese and fries. So I get back to work and take out my burger that is in the box clearly marked "Quarter Pounder with Cheese". I open it up and proceed to take off the top bun to remove the pickles and onions. Please don't ask me why I don't just order the burger plain if I'm removing the pickles and onions. I just find it easier to do it myself then having to ask them to make it plain, only to trigger mass chaos in the kitchen, and be told to pull off to the side while they try to concoct a burger without toppings, and 50% of the time I still end up with crap on it. So anyway, I remove the pickles and just then I look at my burger and realized it looked kind of funny. Instead of the standard brownish-grey disc of bovine carcass I've grown to know and love, I see a golden breaded square. Yep, they slapped a fish filet on the bun and proceeded to top it with the standard kethcup, mustard, pickles, and onions that a quarter-pounder would receive. Now I understand accidents happen and if I got a Filet-O-Fish in a quarter-pounder box I would be upset but would deal with it. But this is weird. Obviously the person putting the toppings on had to notice it was fish and not a burger. So there can only be two obvious scenarios here. A) the McDonalds staff likes playing the occasional joke and flip-flop their sandwiches around, or B) the retard making my sandwich obviously can't look at the pretty picture diagram of how sandwiches are put together and properly decipher the difference between a burger and a deep-fried piece of cod.

Now if you excuse me I have a fish-burger to eat.

Next time you go in there say something to the manager.
They don't train retards as well as they used to. (sorry Rico, no offense).
The other day I had a craving for McDonalds French Fries and McNuggets. Don't really like their food but something hit me and I wanted some. Well the girl who took my order at the drive thru asked what sauce I wanted. I told her that I just want lots of salt and pepper. Then when I picked up my order I asked that girl if there was lots of salt and pepper in the bag. She said yes. I finally dig in about a half a mile away at the first red light. I go to heavily salt my food and find only 2 tiny packets of salt and no pepper. :-/

You see these monkeys that work there just don't care. Stick with the small mom and pop restaurants. You may pay a little more but speaking from an insiders view, they pay attention to detail. These big corporate eateries just can't come close to providing the same service. Besides, the work ethic in this country is piss poor. It only takes 3 seconds to put more salt in the bag, you lazy ass!

All those people are idiots. Especially the ones where I live. You need to make a checklist and cross each item off to make sure you got everything, otherwise you're going to be short food.

The problem is that you guys are too picky. Stick to the numbers and life will be fine. This is not a mom and pop shop where they will count the number of pickles for you. They are trying to pump through as many orders as possible and they would probably rather have you not come at all then trying to decipher your specific needs. Be like me and get a #2 everytime you go, then life will be good.

The thing that pisses me off about Mc D's is when someone sits there and looks at the menu. How can you not know what the hell Mc Donalds sells!!!
