McDonald's Corporation Informative - To Egg or not To Egg that is the question
It is an early morning in Macon Georgia. The skies are slightly overcast and there's a drizzle feeling in the air. The boss's name is JL and my name is Stew.
I pull into the Riverside Drive McDonald's on my way to my duty station. I forwent the drive-through due to a long line and the propensity of getting reamed.
I order a sausage biscuit and a large drink. The young man rings it up when I notice that the sausage egg biscuits are on sale for $1.25 yet I got charged a $1.60 for my sausage biscuit. I asked, why did I get charged $1.60 when the sausage egg biscuits are $1.25. He said because because the sausage biscuits aren't on sale. I said yeah I kind of realize that but it seems odd to charge more for the sausage biscuit. He just shrugged.
If anything I'm about solutions and not conflict unless conflict conflicts me then I conflict conflict. I say okay cancel my order let's start again. Give me a sausage egg biscuit minus the egg and a large drink. He rings it up and holy joe the sandwich rings up at a $1.25. I pointed it out to the young man but he was unimpressed. It occurred to me the only reason back home in OKC I order a sausage biscuit is because they're on the dollar menu and the one with egg costs over twice as much so I say cancel that order let's do this all again. (When making changes to a FF order one should always cancel and start again). Give me a sausage biscuit with egg and a large drink. The young man says, 'hold the egg?' and I say no I do believe I will have the egg today. He mentally rolls his eyes and utters an uninspired 'cool'.
Eh, just another day in my life of complicated simplifications. Oh yeah the Sausage Egg biscuit was pretty, pretty good and at a buck and a quarter how can you lose?
