    Why do you hate kale? Don't you want to live?

    You seem like you are quite the salad dodger.

    :p:D

    Brits don't wash their hands after pooping, apparently.

    Don't know if things have changed since I ( and my fellow stoner guitar player buddy- College band) worked at McDonald's way back in 1980, but I remember being ' schooled' by franchise owner and Mgr. ( seriously!) on ' grill order' Sandwiches( orders that deviated from regular):

    1- NO SUBSTITUTIONS- You can't put anything on sandwich which does not usually go on! Ex. Can't put ' Big Mac' Special Sauce' or lettuce on a Quarter Pounder; No ketchup on a fish....

    2- NO EXTRA ANYTHING! No extra pickles, onions, ketchup etc. You can only remove items

    3. NEVER call the dressing that goes on a McChicken sandwich ( the old, original one) - MAYONNAISE! ( which it was) It's ' McChicken special sauce or dressing' !!!

    - for Halloween 1980, my guitar buddy stole a case of cheese ( a carton with 8 packs, 144 slices each) and gave them to us bandmates and a few friends
    * You'd think I'd remember more important stuff in life, than this, but I guess not...

    I had a feeling there was something like that. Probably not too far off the truth.

    Substitute the cow for some hogs and you got it.;)

    Have you tried Ws strawberry shake? I’m not a huge fan of shakes, but this one is fantastic.

    I'm pretty sure I must have missed an obvious joke here, but nonetheless ... I am no salad dodger. I love salad. I had the Logan's Kickin' Chicken salad for lunch today. I do the surveys and get the $3 off coupon ... the salad with water and the coupon is a damn good $8 lunch. Gotta watch the damn rolls and peanuts ... they add tons o' calories.

    I had one of their Hot Apple Pies. It was during the winter All Things Must Pass came out ...1970? 1971? Then in the late 1980s I had a cup of coffee from one.

    No, wait! It was the early 1990s, in a Burger King.

    They keep putting cheese on my Quarter Pounder no matter how I order.

    Yeah, I remember going to a Horn & Hardart Automat on Market Street in Philadelphia around 1952-55. anything you wanted behind little glass doors, just pop a coin in the slot and viola! the little door is unlocked, I thought it was cool as hell. No need to go to the cashier. You just needed some nickels, dimes and quarters. (They were silver and actually worth something back then)

    I went in again today, what can I say, I guess I'm a masochist. Actually, I just really like McMuffins. No one in line at register or kiosk. I walked up to the register to order, girl told me to use the kiosk behind me. I politely said, "No thanks, I already have a job." She came out from behind her register and used the kiosk - which she didn't really know how to use and messed up my order (shocker). They had to redo it. I'm curious how long this location is going to be stubborn about this thing before they realize it's costing them time and making their customers angry.

    And so began the End Of The World. Think! When was the last time you found a silver coin?

    Well, I guess TDPRI is full of miscreants, drunks, debauchers, slackers, blaggards and general ne'er-do-wells I suppose. But at the same time, it has its more undesirable members too.

    funny you should ask... today is my christmas... I have all my change and I'm headed to a coinstar today! I have the day off... I'm gonna go to coinstar, feed in my coins... select a starbucks card or home depot card (no charges if you do that) then, if I pick starbucks, I'll go on line and transfer the funds to my existing card... then I can order on the app and just breeze in and pick up my order, with very few interactions beyond 'thanks so much'

    it will be a good adventure!

    I haven't read the entire 8 pages of this but it's just another step in the Mcdonaldization of America. There's a book. The first component of McDonaldization

    • Efficiency – the optimal method for accomplishing a task. In this context, Ritzer has a very specific meaning of "efficiency". In the example of McDonald's customers, it is the fastest way to get from being hungry to being full. Efficiency in McDonaldization means that every aspect of the organization is geared toward the minimization of time.[3]
    Their time, not your time. Eventually McDs will be fully automated.
