McDonald's Corporation Complaint - The Straw that Broke the Camel’s Back
MIDWESET CITY, OKLAHOMA -- I'm letting my angry inner child type this one out because I'm mad as hell and I want this to be largely extemporaneous and unedited. Ya know I'm usually the sensible one on my3cents but this time I'm playing the rage card. I think I've earned that privilege.
I wake up this morning feeling good and with an appetite for the first time in a long time. I got a little pep in my step and a hunger in my belly and McDonald's on my mind. I order my breakfast burrito and *rolls eyes* *finger quotes* UNSWEET *finger quotes* iced tea, pays my $2.16 and drive off. Sounds like a happy ending, right. Oh HELL NO. Not by a long shot. I reach in the sack for my straw so I can sip some iced tea and you ain't gonna believe this but Jar Jar Binks forgot to give me a straw. Yeah. No straw. What the bloody hell?
The drive-thru line is too long for my time so I had to spin right back around out of my truck into the store for a damn straw before I could be on my UNHAPPY way. I ask you who forgets the straw, man? How hard is it to put a freaking straw in a sack. You serve a drink you give a straw. It's that way every time. This ain't no decision tree requiring judgment or thought. DRINK – STRAW. DRINK-STRAW. DRINK-STRAW. DRINK-STRAW. There's absolutely no excuse for forgetting the STRAW. GEEZE GEEZE GEEZE GEEZE. If I wanted to get out of my truck for some abuse I'd gone to the Waffle House.
They SCREWED with the WRONG guy this time. I'm never going to McDonalds again. NEVER EVER ANYWHERE. McDonalds in Texas? – NO! In the Kansas? - NO! On a turnpike or in a Walmart or at a mall food court? – NO! NO! NO!!! I AM DONE with McDonalds and I might add for morally superior reasoning.
Bottom line. You just don't treat people like that so early in the morning. It's just that simple.
