So I head on down the road thinking, “I’ll stop and get a coffee at McDonald’s…”
I pull up behind this brand new Kia…
In fact, the plate was still a cardboard temporary plate! Beautiful new Kia Sorento. And the lady was leaning out the window trying to bargain price her breakfast!
KIA LADY: “Hold on…ummmmm…ok…wait a minute…ummmm…”
ME: “OH COME ON!!! I JUST WANT COFFEE!!!”
KIA LADY: “Ok, how much are the Big Breakfasts if you just give us pancakes and sausage and one biscuit?”
McDs: “It’s the same. We can’t change the price of the Big Breakfast if you alter it.”
KIA LADY: “How much is an order of pancakes then?”
McDs: “Well, if you get just pancakes then it’s $1,50.”
KIA LADY: “If you add sausage to that?”
McDs: “Then it’s a Big Breakfast price.”
KIA LADY: “How about if I just get a couple of Sausage Biscuits with the pancakes?”
McDs: “Then it would be $3.00 for two orders of pancakes and another $2.00 for the two Sausage Biscuits.”
KIA LADY: “Ummmm ok….wait a minute….ok….and my total would be?”
ME: “HELLOOOOOOOOOO!!! I NEED COFFEE!!!”
KIA LADY: “Ok, add one more hashbrown. That’s it. Can I have a total?”
I get to the window and am just….UGH!! I am really pissed off at this point because I should have been able to zip into line, get a coffee, and zippity-do-dah my ass right out.
ME: “I’d like a large coffee.”
McDs: “Any cream or sugar with that?”
ME: “No thank you.”
McDs: “Your total is $1.80, please pull around.”
So I pull around, and I have to wait, and wait and wait….and wait………………….still waiting…..
The guy behind the window finally opens the window and what do I see?
So I chuckled and said, “Wow, I bet you’re glad I just ordered a coffee, huh?”
Some people have no sense of humor! (Of course, I was the one who was just recently screaming at the top of my lungs inside my closed car because I had to wait for coffee!)
So I handed him my debit card (HAHA!) to pay for my $1.80 coffee and went on my merry way! If I’d have had more time, I would have started counting the pennies in the center console of my car 🙂 This guy would have had a stroke!
