McDonald's Corporation Compliment - I'm lovin' it! - Chocolate shake
FARMINGTON, NEW MEXICO -- The laws of probability and the cosmic wonders of the universe have finally aligned themselves and smiled down upon me favorably tonight. Over the past 1-2 years, I would have had better luck finding a sewing needle in the middle of a haystack, or matching numbers on the Powerball Jackpot, than I would have had expecting to receive a shake with my order from McDonalds. I became so frustrated a year ago, that I finally said, "Why do you even bother advertising, if it NEVER works"? They just chuckled and shined me on.
Well, low and behold, my daughter had a late ROTC practice and so we decided on grabbing something from the drive-thru. For whatever reason, I felt like rolling the dice tonight, and I actually asked for a shake to drink. To my surprise and delight, they said, "Sure, what flavor would you like"? I was stunned, nearly speechless. I somehow managed to utter a few syllables that must have sounded similar to "chocolate".
For the first time in nearly two years, this location was actually serving shakes. And as if the pandemonium wasn't already at a nearly intolerable level, they topped it with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry! Since when does McDonalds carry maraschino cherries? Regardless, if only for one fleeting moment in time, the shake machine was operational tonight. And my meal was perfect. My customer satisfaction was peaking at an all-time high. Sometimes it's the little pleasures in life that make all the difference. Thanks McDonalds! Thanks for finally getting the whole package together for once.
