Okay. Normally, I don't like to pick on, be mean to, or make fun of people who work in fast food. A lot of people work fast food once or twice in their life, and I can't fault them for it. However, there are always exceptions, like what happened to me today. I had just finished picking up some staples at Wal*Mart, had mah doggie with me, and decided doggie deserved some tasty french fries. Hey look, a McDonalds! They have fries. I can get a milkshake and doggie can have her treat. So, I pull up to the drive through thingie, knowing exactly what I want...
... and proceed to sit there and wait for 2 or 3 minutes.
So, I'm already kind of annoyed when the following conversation occours:
McDonalds Employee: Welcome to McDonalds, how can I help you? puppysmuggler: Hi, I'd like a chocolate milkshake and a medium order of fries. *long pause* MDE: Okay, a medium milkshake and what? PS: Fries. Medium fries. MDE: mafewowh woreahpe ada? PS: Chocolate milkshake, medium fries. MDE: Milkshake and what?? PS: FRIES. Medium FRIES. MDE: WHAT do you want?? PS: Fuck it. Nevermind.
I then drove off. What do you think? Did I overreact? Should I have sat there and shouted FRIES at the microphone until she understood? Or was she just stupid?
I just had a manicure and now my fingernails and cuticles are pretty again. Cold weather really tears my hands up. The manicurist gave me some special cuticle cream butter lotion something to use so my hands won't crack so badly anymore. Apparantly, some lotions can actually dry you out! Eek!
