    During a particularly hectic Saturday night at the McDonald's drive thru, I patiently waited for my turn to order. After some minutes the young girl manning (girling?) the window came on and apologized for the wait. I jauntily replied that it wasn't a problem at all and that I understood things were hectic for her given the length of the line and what must be some of the busiest operation hours of the week. When I arrived home and opened the bag, much to my astonishment, nestled amongst the fries and the hot apple pie was an additional barbeque dipping sauce packet for my McNuggets. I cannot be sure, but I suspect this act of generosity may have been due to my simple kindness during our brief conversation at the illuminated menu board. Springs1, do you have any idea the sense of freedom and well being one has heedlessly dipping their McNuggets, safe in the knowledge that they have a backup packet just in case?

    I urge you to meditate on my little story and strongly suggest that you voluntarily commit yourself to a mental health facility in your area for observation and electro shock therapy - for which I think you will have to sign a series of consent forms.

    one time I was eating at hooters and after the waitress plunked down my order of buffalo shrimps I told her I'm getting a blue cheese burger, and she had the gall to correct me and say it's BLEU cheese, not blue, with a smirk. and I also ordered a bud light and she said she'll get back "in a jiff" in sing song manner. after a few minutes the guy beside me had a seizure and was on the ground and that same waitress had the gall to grab push me away while taking care of this guy on the floor who I noticed was being served by a different waitress. and then she also took her sweet time bringing my bud light and then telling me that they had to call 911 and calm the guy down and all that. and this is expensive burger I'm eating dammit! in the end I gave her a 25% tip even if I was fuming inside because oh my god those bewbs!

    You guys are being kind of harsh. I work nights as a waiter and I think springs1's tips are very good ones. I actually printed them out and I am going to refer to them during service tonight to keep me on the straight and narrow. Thank you, springs1.

    I was merely dutifully and scrupulously relaying the facts of my own encounter and teachable moment as they transpired. I'm a tangy barbeque man (and occasionally Hot Mustard but that's another story) but Mickey D's is nothing if not versatile. Please examine the final packet of the last row in the following helpful illustration for relevance to the topic at hand.

    I guess this should be in the "Pissing you Off" thread but I live in Southern Nevada i.e. the Southwest. Why don't we get the Chipotle option? Or has that little teenage bitch been holding out on me?

    You're welcome! If servers would think about all these things about being considerate to the customer's time and feelings by working *HARD*, they'd make lots more money.

    It's all worthwhile if you get a bigger tip from the occasional sociopath.

    Accidental multipost! For great justice!

    No ranch dressing. No "to-go" coke. No extra nappies. = fail.
