Nothing serious here, but I thought this was amusing. A blog post from Steed
So I Was In McDonalds...
In New York, on Steed’s recent trip to the States, I found myself in McDonalds. (I know, I know, everyone back home thinks its fancy restaurants and steak all the way) but Dad and I had back to back appointments all day and feeling the hunger pains and not having had breakfast, decided to get a cheeseburger from McDonalds, which is two minutes from the Kimberly Hotel and would enable me to get there and back & fed before the next customer was due.
So there I was, waiting to fill my cup with Coke, (I mention this because one of their executives may be reading this & might be looking for new talent) when a young lad, 19/20, says,
“Hey man, I love your suit”
“Wait a minute, did you make that?”
“What’s your name?”
“Matthew DeBoise, from Steed tailors?”
At which point, the whole of McDonalds turned round and was looking, even the traffic cop, that was there said, “oh yeah, it is him”! (I’m totally convinced he had no idea who I was or had heard of Steed though, but guessed he should know who I was due to the fuss that was being made).
So the moral of the story is, don’t underestimate the power of social media or a McDonalds Cheeseburger.
