We don’t go to McDonald’s much.
Ok, let me re-phrase that.
We don’t go to McDonald’s much together.
When we do Brian and I always order the same thing.
He gets a Big Mac Meal.
I get a cheeseburger and a six-pack of nuggets.
I drink his drink.
Brian does not drink a drink.
We only require one.
Yeah I know, we’re 80.
This weekend we found ourselves in the drive through of McDonald’s. I’m tweeting and Brian’s scanning the menu like he always does (even though we both know he will end up getting the Big Mac).
And then something in our well oiled machine falters.
“Welcome to McDonald’s can I take your order?”
“Ya can I get a Big Mac Meal but I don’t want the drink.”
“Ok, so you just want a Big Mac and fries?”
“Well is it cheaper to get the Big Mac Meal?”
“Alright, I’ll take the meal.”
“So, one Big Mac Meal. What can I get you to drink?”
“I don’t want a drink.”
“Right. Ok. So you just want a Big Mac and fries?”
“No. Listen. I want you to give me the Big Mac Meal and the drink but YOU keep the drink.”
“Oh we have to give you the drink.”
“I don’t have cup holders.” (resorting to LIES… shame shame)
“A combo comes with a drink so would you like the Big Mac Combo?”
Like we’re brand new to the combo. Like we’ve never been to McDonald’s before. Like we haven’t memorized the combo numbers and locations of every McDonalds in a 100 mile radios.
“Ok just give me the drink.”
“GREAT! Ok what kind can we get for you today?”
“A bottle of water. Ok.”
“No. Tap water. Out of your tap, in a cup.”
“Oh we aren’t allowed to do that sir.”
“Ok, then you pick.”
“Super, our new orange Fruitopia.”
“Great and I’ll be sure to give you a cup holder with it.”
Today is Election Day in Canada people.

I was not compensated in any way for this post by Elections Canada, McDonald’s, or Fruitopia (or anyone) and all opinions are purely my own, however, it would have been nice to receive a nugget or two.
