    Let me tell you about the Mc D's girl in GA that after ordering a Chocolate shake...and I got a Vanila.
    When I went back inside AND SHOWED HER THE WHITE SHAKE her answer was " Well,.... It came out of the chocolate side sir"...
    To which I replied " Yes, but it is white...like me...and TASTES LIKE vanilla"
    To which she repeated " But..it came out of the chocolate side"

    This happened 12 years ago while my youngest daughter was in college...and to this day when something is just so stupid as to be unbelievable...We say..
    " But it came out of the chocolate side sir"


    Similar type incident happened to me as a young lad. Dad ordered Chinese food. They said it would be there in 30 min 'at least'. ****, this could take days.

    Friend ordered a burger without pickles at wendys. He watched them make it. with pickles. He pushed it back and said he ordered no pickles, the looked at the receipt.. said no pickles. She insisted it had no pickles and got a manager, never opening the wrapper. The solution escaped her.

    Anecdotal stories are the best way to judge how much Mickey's D's employees should make. I commend you, sir.

    Well, It points to the fact that if her IQ was 50 or 70 points higher...she'd be working at CERN...and not Mickey d's....

    If you are unhappy with the pay and benefits of a "fast food career"....get an education.

    We aren't supposed to talk about the REAL social problem here. Think she has a cell phone? Think the kids have an xbox? Think the kids have cell phones?


    Yep cell phones. Cell phones are at the crux of this social issue. Take away the phones, solve the problem. Effing A, you are ON to something man. This MEANS something!

    By union involvement I meant to say why weren't these people unionized years ago?

    Not that I think that's a good idea ....

    Americans are so friggin lazy, that's why. Some people would rather drive through and blow $20 on crap than spend half that much on decent groceries and cook them at home. I noticed that even at the height of the recession in 2008-2011 every Chli's, Macaroni Grill - you name it was packed every night on my way home from work. People will lose their houses and cars, but still eat slop from restaurants. Pure American laziness and softness.

    That's REALLY what you think it's about? Not the bills associated with it? What is the cheapest monthly cell phone services with txt and internet? How many hours does a minimum wage worker have to work to pay it (after taxes)? Are you really that stupid? So stupid that you think it's about the glass and plastic? Or are you just not wanting to admit that it's a luxury that these workers DEMAND but cannot afford.. Another ENTITLEMENT demand and you know it.

    Wipe off the froth and do some reading.

    Perhaps a more studied approach is in order. Time, more people single, spoilage, etc.

    Its not the lazy people this effects most - its the person working 2 jobs and really trying that faces increased food costs with decreased nutritional value. That person is doing it right if they are never HOME to cool and always on the bounce - schooling/jobs.

    so, if the stories that unions are paying the workers to strike are true, are they paying them more than Ronald does?

    Three actually.....

    I think I have mentioned before that Florida is a " right to work" state and it is illegal for public safety workers ( Police or firemen or Paramedics) to go on any strikes or work slow downs etc...so for me..the union was meaningless....

    But we did get to go to meetings....and conventions...which got me out of the house...and that's worth something.... :rotflmao

    Except to negotiate your wages and and benefits for you, collective bargaining. If you consider that nothing so it is.

    More like " Collective begging" :rotflmao...since with no ability other than to say "please"... you got...what the city council wanted to give..

    And...being a right to work state...I did not HAVE TO belong...I would still get everything that all the union members got....but I wouldn't get to go to those conventions...Oh Man!... :dance
