Are you a Burger King person or a McDonald's person? Because you can only be one or the other.
I'm a McDonald's person. I could eat it every day for every meal (for a month and then get addicted, vomit, and go into liver failure). I love salty food and that's McDonald's. Love those fries. I used to love their chicken nuggets, but then they RUINED them by making them real chicken. (If you know about dark meat chicken nuggets then we are soulmates.) Now I love their Southern Style Chicken Sandwich. It's just like chick fil-a except not evil.
However, on my drive home, there is a Burger King and not a McDonald's. So I'm forced to get BK if I want takeout that doesn't involve me getting out of the car (practically impossible with two kids in tow). Their burgers are OK, so I suck it up.
However, the drive-thru BK on my way home ALWAYS gets my freaking order wrong. ALWAYS, for about a year. And it was always this one same guy at the drive-thru.
At first, they just would forget the fries or one of the burgers. This was annoying because I'd have to drive back to get it after arriving home. Then I learned my lesson and started checking before driving away. (I also once had to demand change of my twenty. "You gave me a twenty??")
However, they managed to thwart me by putting the right NUMBER of items in the bag, but just the wrong items. So I got home one day and found that our two burgers were actually two chicken sandwiches. So I started checking the wrappers to make sure all the sandwiches are the right ones before driving away.
Then I discovered that this is not good enough because they labeled a wrapper as California whopper and instead gave me a regular whopper. So it got to the point where I had to open every single sandwich to make sure it was correct before driving away.
One day, I got my order, checked the sandwiches were right, and started driving away. Then I noticed that they had forgotten my daughter's chocolate milk.
I was so angry, there was steam coming out of my ears. The drive-thru already had two cars waiting, so I parked and got out of my car with my two children. I stormed into the Burger King, asked for the manager, and basically started screaming. I relayed all my pent-up anger at BK, about how they ALWAYS got my order wrong. I kept yelling, "I'm so angry!" The manager kept nodding and at one point, I think he looked at the drive-thru guy and said, "See?"
I vowed not to go back there again, but a few weeks later, it was late and didn't feel like making dinner, so I decided to try it again.
When I pulled up to the drive-thru, I saw the usual drive-thru kid was gone. And since then, he never came back.
I wonder if he got fired or if my rampage contributed to his being fired. Or maybe they just reassigned him to the back. Anyway, they haven't gotten my order wrong since then.
