So I’m at McDonald’s late one night ordering one of their newfangled iced coffees (which are great by the way), and this is how the transaction went down:
Apathy: Hi, how may I help you?
Justin: Hello, does the regular iced coffee come with cream and sugar?¹
Apathy: OK, anything else?
Justin: No, I’m sorry, I was asking if the regular iced coffee came with cream.
Apathy: Yeah, I got it, anything else?
Apathy: $2.19 at the second window.
(at second window)
Apathy: Large hazelnut coffee, $2.19 please.
Justin: No one ever said the word hazelnut.
Apathy: You don’t want hazelnut?
I swear, between this and that other McDonald’s experience, I just don’t get how the world turns.
- I’d only ordered the vanilla and hazelnut flavors before and wasn’t sure if the regular flavor came with cream and/or sugar. ↩
