Today marks the first day of a fast food ban. A giant thank you to Wendy's who was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. Today during my lunch break I went to Wendy's and waited 20 minutes in line....you know for FAST FOOD. My order was simple, although perhaps too complex for the G.E.D.less yokels that work there. I ordered a chicken sandwich with just mayo and a double stack, formerly the stack attack, plain, a value fry and a large coke. VERYYYYY complicated I know. So I go to the window and pay for my "meal" to what looked like Quasimodo and went to the next window to get my food. I should have known that something was askew when my order was waiting on me. In the history of me ordering "fast food" it has never been ready when I pulled up to the window, especially since I order most things plain. Although the warning sign was there I foolishly ignored it and drove away back to my place of employment to try and enjoy a little bit of Jim Rome on the radio and have my "meal" before I had to go back to my indentured servitude.
Here is the part in the story where I get angry. I eat my chicken sandwich and fries without incident, and then I go to open the double stack.....damnit it is not plain. How hard is it to read a screen? How hard is it to see that it says plain next to that order? Apparently this is one of the more complicated tasks in the world because I would say that 1 out of every 3 trips the these garbage factories results in me getting the wrong food. I know that none of these folks are creating cures for cancer, brain storming new technological advances or even just bathing on a regular basis, so, is it too much to ask for them to get my damn order correct?
Incidentally I gave my burger to someone else, which will make my wife happy to know that I did not eat the extra food. And since I am just a peon, I did not have enough time to go get something else to eat or even drive back to Wendy's to go all "Jesy" on them. Sorry for the inside joke there, but if you want to know the story please let me know and I will tell anyone.
So, no more fast food joints for me, unless it is an emergency or I am out voted by a group i am out with. Thank you Wendy's for ruining a good run of bad food.
