So this morning, I was really craving one of my favorite foods, the McDonald’s Fruit and Yogurt Parfait. This delicious little treat is great to pick up on my way to work and I didn’t have enough time to eat breakfast. So I pull into the 5 car drive-thru line and patiently await my turn to inch towards the speaker. Once there, I notice the SUV in front of me ordered $15 worth of breakfast foods and I am shocked that someone can even spend $15 at McDonald’s. I then ordered my tasty treat and inched forward. I’m now stuck in the curbed area next to the playground about 3 cars from the payment window and 2 car from the pick up window.
The McDonald lovin‘ SUV wanted to pay so badly they crashed into the car in front of them. Literally just plowed into the little Toyota in front of them. Granted, I know it was an accident, but now I was stuck in the drive-thru lane, and I hadn’t even gotten my parfait yet. So I waited, thinking these wise people in the drive-thru line would continue moving forward and take their problems to the parking lot, thus allowing the rest of the McDonald’s drive-thru patrons to continue through the line, ordering, paying and getting their food.
Wrong again. Immediately the Toyota driver hops out in the middle of the drive-thru line and walks up to the SUV and demands them to also exit their car, in the middle of the drive-thru. She won’t get out. There’s yelling through windows. McDonald’s employees are coming outside. A cop rolls up. I just sit and wait. I just wanted a parfait! Seriously! I would have not gotten in the drive-thru lane if I knew this whole debacle was going to happen! Oh you golden arches, how you lure many in.
So besides the drama from McDonald’s, we have the lovely 26.2 gift!Tthe gift of the day today is all the warm weather wear from Tel-a-Runner.
