McDonald's Corporation Informative - Drive Thru Service
BETHALTO, ILLINOIS -- I am going to be petty for a minute, and I have expressed my feelings to the McDonalds manager several times. My issue isn't with the food at all, its as good as one would expect it to be I guess. My issue is the clerk giving you your beverage thru the drive thru and not giving you a straw at the same time. They place it in the bag with the food items, this is wrong and has to stop. I was told this is company procedure now. Its so hard to sit in the car and look at my drink without being able to taste the refreshment. I know what people will say you can take the lid off, well I am not that coordinated the last time I spilled coke in my lap (my fault not blaming McDonalds).
I will continue to frequent McDonalds though because the $1 chicken sandwiches are great. I also want everyone to know the straws are policy and race has nothing to do with me getting one. I am white and so are most of the workers at my location. I guess if this is my biggest problem with them (other than sometimes charge for BBQ sauce - I will save that for a later time) I am not to bad off in life.
