I like Filet-O-Fish. I like McDonalds French Fries (who doesn't!?)
So I'm driving to work around 11:00am and I see a McDonalds restaurant just up ahead.
I'm thinking Filet-O Fish and Fries for only $3.33. I'd be stupid if I wasn't thinking that!
Fish sandwich...french fries...$Three point three three.
So I go up to the college educated white guy at the counter (I'm kidding!!) and order the Filet-O Fish and French Fries $3.33 special.
Here is the conversation:
ME: "I'd like to order the Filet-O-Fish and french fries special for $3.33.
CLERK: "We don't have that here."
ME: "You don't have Filet-O-Fish and french fries?"
CLERK: "Yes...I mean, we have those but not as a special."
ME: "This is a McDonalds, correct?"
CLERK: "It's at participating McDonalds restaurants." (he didnt actually use the words 'participating' or 'restaurants'.)
ME: "So let me get this straight....Corporate McDonalds spends millions of dollars on a countrywide promotion and you dont want to participate?"
CLERK: "May I take your order?"
ME: "I'll have a hamburger and a small french fries."
CLERK: "That will be $4.04."
ME: "For a burger and fries?"
ME: "Is that a special promotion?"
