I had a McWorker argue with me over a hash brown this morning. Look, toots, you made a mistake, I don't have a hash brown. No, it doesn't say "hash brown" on my receipt, it says "SEC MCGRDL ML." I don't speak the McLanguage fluently, but I'm pretty sure that means "sausage egg cheese mcgriddle meal." I'm also pretty sure one SEC MCGRDL doesn't cost nearly 4 bucks. Just give me my freakin' hash brown. It's subtle salty crunchiness complements the SEC MCGRDL very well. No, thank YOU. Are you always this friendly? I'm just as grumpy as you are, except I had to drop my husband off at the airport because he's going to be gone for a week, and I said "please" and "thank you." What's your excuse? You think I'd walk into a McDonald's at 5:30 in the morning in slippers and no bra if I didn't pay for the hash brown? I certainly didn't want to re-encounter your McAttitude.
(For the record, I was indeed very polite to the woman, and not in the snotty polite way. I didn't even roll my eyes when she chucked a hash brown at me and didn't make any kind of apology for her mistake.)
Sigh. Sometimes I can understand why people are rude to fast-food workers. I have rarely, and I mean RARELY, been treated with the respect I give. You get what you give, folks. Unless you're a customer.
So I get treated like a huge (pyjama clad) dummy over a 5 cent hash brown, but Wal-Mart will give people store credit for the fat they cut off their meat. Huh.
