The McDonald's Charges For Extra Condiments Warning Sign
First off, the staff here has to come clean and admit that we stopped at a McDonald's drive-thru this morning on our grocery junket. Normally, we would not but a couple of staffers had to get something in their bellies so they could take their meds and this was just right there on the way. When we pulled thru the lane we noticed the sign declaring that "There Will Be An Additional Charge For Extra Condiments". The first thing wrong with this is that what is the big deal with giving out a few extra ketchups or a BBQ sauce to a paying customer? Second thing is the wording on the sign is all bold and "in your face" - like something you might read if you were in the line for food in the county jail. There was no polite wording or thanks for understanding anywhere. The whole thing is just cheap and rude. I can think of plenty of other places that will give out as many ketchup packets as you want - some even have big tubs and you just help yourself.
