Lily takes dance class one evening a week after which it has become routine to drive thru McDonalds for dinner. Actually, just about her entire class follows suit and we all sit one behind the other in line. Lily always gets a Happy Meal and I religiously get a sweet tea. This tea is sweet enough to send you into a diabetic coma, but dang, it is GOOD!
After a LONG wait in line, we finally get our order and as they hand me bag, it falls to the cement. I have to get out and reach under my car to retrieve it, so I am already annoyed. Before driving off, I always check Lily’s bag for BBQ sauce, because you do not want to witness the meltdown that follows if there is no sauce in the bag when we get home. Of course, no sauce. While waiting for the cashier to return with the sauce (where did they have to go to get it, Canada?), I took a sip of my sweet tea. BLECH. It is OBVIOUSLY unsweet.
I tell the cashier that she gave me the wrong drink. She says, “You ordered sweet tea.” Why yes, yes I did….but this is UNSWEET. She takes it from me and instead of just throwing it away……….
She takes a sip out of my cup!!!!
Is anyone else grossed out by this?? I was sitting there wondering if I should tell her that I coughed my head off all day and had a sore throat, but I decided she would figure it out in a few days.
Anyway, she agrees that she gave me unsweet and puts it down on the counter. She makes a sweet tea and places it next to the unsweet tea I just returned (and she drank). She gets distracted with a customer question and when she returns to hand me the drink, she can’t remember which one is the sweet tea!! Normally, I would have been upset, but this was turning out to be quite funny.
It gets better. She doesn’t know which tea is the sweet one, so she opens them BOTH and takes a sip! OH.YES.SHE.DID. At this point, I am almost daring her to hand me the cup she drank out of because a manager would have been called over at that point. Fortunately, she realized what she was doing and fixed me a new sweet tea.
Afterthought: Is anyone else disturbed at how many times I blog about McDonald’s? I really need to eat healthier.
