<p>Called into McDonalds Drive Through this morning and ordered a Sausage and Egg McMuffin meal with an extra hash brown and an orange juice.</p>
<p><b>Speaker:</b> "I'm sorry, we don't have any hash browns this morning. There's a problem with the machine<br /><b>Me:</b> "OK, I'll have a Double Sausage McMuffin and an orange juice then please."<br /><b>Speaker:</b> "That will be £4.18 please drive to the 1st window."</p>
<p>As I drove round I thought "£4.18 seems a little expensive?"</p>
<p><b>Me:</b> "Excuse me, £4.18 seems a little expensive for a Sausage and Egg McMuffin and an orange juice? How much is the McMuffin?"<br /><b>Assistant:</b> "Umm? Err? yes it does. How about I do a fruit bowl with that? as a meal it will be cheaper."<br /><b>Me:</b> "OK."<br /><b>Assistant:</b> "That'll be £4.29"</p>
<p>There was by now a rather large queue behind me so it wasn't till I started to move I thought "Hang on, £4.29? How's that cheaper?" having spent some time waiting I decided to 'suck it up' as they say, get my food and carry on to my office. As I pulled up to the 2nd window.</p>
<p><b>2nd Assistant:</b> "Hi there, I'm sorry about this but we've run out of fruit bowls.<br /><b>Me:</b> "Seriuosly?Can I have a word with the manager please?"</p>
<p>A few moments later</p>
<p><b>Manager:</b> "Hello there."<br /><b>Me:</b> "Hi, can you tell me how much a Double Sausage and Egg McMuffin is please?"<br /><b>Manager:</b> "£2.99"<br /><b>Me:</b> "And an orange juice?"<br /><b>Manager:</b> "£1.29"<br /><b>Me:</b> "Hmm? £4.28 The thing is, I questioned the price of £4.18 which I thought was a bit expensive. I was told if I had a fruit bowl it would be cheaper however £4.29 is not cheaper and now after all that I'm told you don't have the fruit bowl either!"<br /><b>Manager:</b> "I'm sorry about that, would you like your money back?"<br /><b>Me:</b> "I want my food to be honest."<br /><b>Manager:</b> "I'll refund the price of the fruit bowl."</p>

Have to wonder why you keep going back. I've not had anything from MacD in many years.

I NEVER eat in my car. Ate it in my office. I go mad when my daughter asks for coffee. Those crappy lids never fit right.

Yeah, you're right. I don't eat there that often tbh. Although I suspect it looks like it from your end. LOL
