Fast Food Confusion

So I go through the McDonald's drive through at lunch to get a salad. (Yep, a salad). When I finally make it to the speaker I hear, "I'm sorry for the inconvience, but my manager has informed me that I can no longer take any orders. A bus has just arrived and we have to clear up all those orders first. I'm sorry." What the . . . ? I ain't lovin' it!

For fun, try this. Go to a Sonic. Push the button and say, "Yes, I just want one thing...just a (whatever) and that's it. Nothing else. That's all I want.

And see what happens.

"Would you like a blah blah with that" or "would you like to make that a meal"...etc.

I guess old Ron has enough money that he can just turn people away at noon for a busload of kids from St. Joe.

McDonald's - who goes there anymore for salad?

Try Subway - course you'll have to be inconvenienced and walk in the door.

This is a problem?

I'll trade mine for yours.

CLOSE THE DAMN CAMPUS IN DECATUR!!!! and that won't happen. I was at DQ today and a BUS LOAD of DECATUR ISD kids came in DQ and well as TACO BELL to eat. DO WE as taxpayers fund their lunch trip!??????

Bad Management! I would highly suggest writing the corporate office. You'll be surprised at what kind of response you will get. Even if you don't get a response, it will make you feel better.

I'm of the opinion that when something is dead wrong like that, contact the owner, President, etc. They can't correct problems they do not know exist. Commication is key here. Write a letter to the editor too. Bad press can get responses as well.

I am sure some how a coach will be blamed. Prob from Bridgeport. Just wait and see!

Anon 3:35...Mcdonalds is a franchise you retard. Writing the corporate office won't accomplish anything. What the hell does the word "commication" mean anyways?

Retards need to refrain from posting comments.

originalgofish, I wouldn't be too quick to call someone a "retard". You've posted some pretty stupid posts yourself in the last month or so.

Hey, originalgofish, before you call Anon 3:35 a retard, you need to get your facts straight. McDonald's is a franchise, but a franchise pays corporate a percentage of their gross, so corporate has a very real interest in the bottom line of its franchisees. So, perhaps you need get your facts straight and heed your own rude advice to Anon 3:35.

It is a franchise store but, McDonalds home office sets the rules to play by. A call to the home office WILL get attention. I would be curious as to what the manager has to say. Kinda hard to believe that they would close the drive thru during lunch because a bus came in. Not saying it didn't happen, just mind boggling.

Y'all are both retards too....because corporate couldn't do a damn thing about them turning customers away for being too busy....if you are too busy you are just too busy.

Anon 3:27,

Before you judge the trip by Decatur ISD kids ato Taco Bell and DQ, please understand that we (at Alvord MS) offer our students off-campus lunch if 90% or more of our students pass their TAKS test. Our students pay for their own lunches, and we just provide transportation to Decatur. . . AND we phone our orders ahead so the restaurants can have extra staff on hand for our visit and not be backed up. Perhaps the Decatur trip was some sort of academic incentive like this. This incentive has seemed to keep our scores up the last two or three years. I just wanted to help more of you understand what may be going on. Thanks.

You're attitude is really bad. To call someone a "retard" because they suggest contacting a company is very disrespectful. How old are you, 12?

Actually, the busload of Decatur ISD students was probably a situation where they were starting to go out of town to some academic or athletic venue around lunchtime, and had to stop and get a lunch before they left. And of course, the students pay for their own lunches. Good lord, we sure like to jump to stupid conclusions!!

I'm glad those "big gun" atheletes eat healthy before a big meet.

No, the kids were on a trip to UNT to visit the campus. Before they left they grabbed some food. Stop complaining, its not the kids' fault Mickey D's didn't have enough staff on hand.

by the way, dhs students aren't bussed to mcdonalds for off campus lunch. they drive their own cars. the busload of students had nothing to do with open or closed campus.

Here's a quote from Barry.....
[No comments for now. You guys go crazy on criminal justice]
Little did he know that people could go post "crazy" on McDonald's!

The truth is....it's a conspiracy supported by Quizno's.

Quizno's kicks ass! Oh and by the way. Steve just opened a Mr. Jims in Carriage Square close to Pancho's in Denton. I guess he came into some money ;(

Just one more reason NOT to eat at McD's!

BTW, it really is no trouble to keep a bag of mixed salad greens, a few tomatoes and a jar of your favourite dressing in the fridge at the office.

They can't the orders correct anyway -- so it probably was a good thing the drive thru window was closed -- you would have gotten the wrong thing......
