    Since were gripein'[left lane drivers-Taiwan etc] I have to share an experience at Mcd's yesterday.On way home wife called wanted me to pick up a big mac and 10 piece nuggets which are on the 2 for $5 deal we have here,I order it and the total is $9.30?? I said the board shows them at 2 for$5 and I was told I didn't ask for it so they charge full menu price-WTF??? when I got to the window I asked the manger or assist who was taking the money [very nicely I'm not gonna rag] what up and he replied the register doesn't do it automatically and the help can't remember things like that??-I just wonder how many people just flip them the card and don't even think about the total.Things like that are why we eat at home 95% of the time-P.S. it wasn't very good-Later Steve!!

    He's right about the help, if the register didn't tell them they wouldn't be able to make change.

    Most of the yo-yo's can't even make change without the register telling them the amount. We don't do fast food much, but Burger King doesn't do that. If it's on special, you automatically get the price.

    I love paying them with cash....and thinking ahead. The ash tray in my truck is full of change. If the total is $9.52...I'll pay $10.02 and watch the expression on their face. They'll look at you like you just handed them a dirty baby diaper.

    I know how you guys feel. I personally love McDonald's and eat there a few times a week. Here in CO since most everyone likes to smoke marijuana there has been a big shift in pre employment drug testing and lower wage jobs like fast food and grocery stores don't do it anymore, so most of the staff must be stoners.
    Plus not speaking English very well means my order is constantly screwed up. I do feel sorry for the poor schlubs that have to work there, the executives for that company get filthy rich and the workers get peanuts.

    Same here. I try to get rid of pennies whenever possible and there's no better place than the McDeath drive-thru.

    Confusing kids with simple math....... priceless!!

    I went to the store one time years ago and paid cash, and noticed on the screen it had fricken pictures of money and how many to give back. So 33 cents and it would show like a quarter=1 nickel=1 penny=3...I was like good

    yeah back when the shakes came in the same cups the soft drinks came in?
