No matter how unhealthy. No matter how unelegant. No matter how inconsistant.
You still have a hold on our family. (on cheat-day, of course)
My hungry children and I waited for much too long in your drive thru.
We were patient.
We did not fuss.
We paid our 'bill'.
We received our drinks.
We waited even longer for the rest of the order.
We checked to make sure we had everything we purchased.
We drove home.
Mommy set the kids at the table with their food.
Mommy sat down to get her grub on.
And by golly, her sandwich was wrong.
'Hold the tartar sauce' had meant nothing to you, ye 'Ol Golden Arches.
Sweet hubby bagged up this disaster of a dinner and returned to the scene of the crime.
He calmly explained the situation.
'We waited much too long.'
'Our orders are wrong 50% of the time.'
'My food is at home getting cold because I had to come back up here.'
And you apologized.
You refunded the cost of that 'value' meal.
You made fresh fries to go with a new sandwich.
And when hubs returned home with this food....
You had left off more than you were supposed to.
No one ever said 'hold the cheese.'
And yet, you'll probably have another chance to fail again.
