Hmmmph!

This past weekend, after Ella's recital, we all went to McDonald's for dinner and treats. I ordered a hot fudge sundae and this is what I got(I added the nuts on top).A cup of vanilla icecream that is half way melted with a couple of squirts of hot fudge on top. A piece-of-crap sundae is what I call it. Below is the picture from McDonald's website of what a hot fudge sundae should look like.
Do you see any difference between the two pictures? Oh yeah. Why wasn't my chocolate oozing down the sides? Why wasn't there a beautiful mountain peak of icecream on top? Those were the questions running through my mind. So, what did I do you ask? I went back to the register and asked politely for more chocolate. Tara even took a picture of me talkin to the guy. . .The guy stared at me with the blankest stare ever and rudely said, "That costs extra." I thought to myself -why should it cost extra to put something on the sundae that should've already been there? I said something back like, "You can't give one more pump of chocolate? This doesn't even look like a sundae. " He repeated back, "Costs extra. " Okay, I heard ya the first time, you can't come up with anything else to say? Seriously dude, you can't give a girl a little more chocolate? What happened to the customer is always right? I even winked at him and batted my eyelashes. I was even wearing my low cut shirt for crying out loud! :) I guess I don't got it goin on like I used to.... sigh...

Well, I contacted McDonalds(wha ha ha ha! I'm evil, I know) and I hope this guy is reprimanded soon. No one, and I mean no one denies me more chocolate. Big mistake dude, big mistake.


Ok, maybe I have issues with food.....

sakes alive! i love me a micky d's hot fudge, so that makes me very, very sad. although, i do always order mine with extra hot fudge, and true story, "that costs extra". but you are too right. you weren't give your due in the first place. shame on you, mcdonald's! and good for you for contacting them.

and this is why he is working for 9 bucks an hour at dirty ron's.....

good for you to get all crazy on him--he should show some courtesy!

Way to go girl. We chocolate lovers need to stand up for our rights! Next time take the picture in with you and tell them that you want yours to be the photo's identical twin.

Maybe MacDonalds will contact you and give you a year's worth of free ice cream ????? well maybe.

Next time take in the picture. What can he say to that? But really, he probably has 5 kids to feed and is at least trying to make it at McD's. Although, giving you some extra choc. isn't hurting his paycheck. He must have been a stuffy manager.

hoLLy said...

he is quite the stuffy man:) everytime i've been there i've never seen him crack a smile! and just for the record everyone, i wasn't mean to the guy. i just wanted a little sugar! :) this post is written in a sarcastic/joking manner. just wanted to make sure you don't think i'm a mean psycho lady that goes off on people when i don't get my way....i only do that sometimes..... !)

I know you really are a mean psycho lady. I've seen you at Mcdonalds. :) J/K Don't mess with Holly's chocolate! :)

Ohmygoodnessthisissofunny.

HOLLY! I would have been cracking up.

Good for you for contacting McDonalds. Sometimes that pays off! I got some free spices once for contacting this company that produced these soup cups that smelled and tasted like feet. ;)

Tara D said...

Haha, I love that you contacted the big Ronald McD! You should have told that manager you knew Ronald personally. That would have changed his tune! Fo sho!!!

Jori said...

Where do they get off denying you chocolate?? What did the fool think he was going to charge you 1 cent??? What an idiot!

Suzie said...

Ok. i love you WAY more after this post.

Wendy Lee said...

The more I learn about you the more I think we are so much alike. I would totally do that! So funny, way to stand up for yourself and for what you deserve!

LOVE this post! Motherhood has changed you from a shy girl to a woman you don't want to mess with( at least when it comes to your food) I love it!

Anayansi said...

Tiburon said...

Good for you. How dare he!??! I would have opened up a can right there at the counter!
