The to-and-fro regarding fast foodies’ lack of earning power and possible solutions to the problem reminded me why I don’t eat at MickyDs. It has nothing to do with the food (although when they quit frying French fries in tallow they made a bad mistake) because you don’t eat at places like that for the food; you eat at places like that because they are consistent. Consistently average, true, but consistent.
There is a McDonalds on the way to my spouse’s music teacher. Twice I’ve stopped because she can’t ride in an auto for over ten minutes without needing to visit the facilities. I’m old-school…if I use your facilities I’m going to try to buy something from your establishment, seeing it as only fair. I’ve pulled into the lot, gotten in line to order, and still been waiting in line to order when the wife returned powdered, primped, and perfected. And trust me, she takes her time. So I’ve been waiting to order for a minimum of five, and more like ten, minutes. Too long for too little.
If I’m going to have to wait, I’ll go to a full-service eatery.
Ronald has good coffee, and cheap, though.
