It's going to be a good day!
As I waited for my food others came in line to order and I noticed a couple men who were older than me ordering their food. They ordered a senior coffee with their meal. "That's nice" I thought. A deal for the older folks. McDonald's does it again. Responding to the needs of the average person and keeping their prices affordable.
My tray was ready so I proceeded to a table. They had put the receipt on the tray so I decided to check it out further to see what the prices were for my great deal. I figured the biscuit must have been on the dollar menu and 89 cents for the small coffee.
As I studied the receipt I was surprised that they had abbreviated small coffee as SNR coffee. As I puzzled over it a bolt of realization hit my brain. "WHAT?! They gave me a SENIOR coffee" at 49 cents. "How dare they?" "I didn't order a senior coffee!" "What possibly would make them assume that I was a senior?" (though I guess I am).
This was just totally unacceptable! It must be this practical trench coat I'm wearing. I sat there debating whether I should march right up and DEMAND that I pay FULL price for small coffee. Or, better, was this my invitation to get a leather coat to replace the practical trench. As I munched my biscuit and sipped my HOT :) coffee the quandry really messed with my head but why would I choose to pay more for my coffee?
The next morning I decided to do it again. Again, they gave me a SNR coffee without me asking for it. Oh, this is just NOT good!
Being the glutton for punishment I can be sometimes be I decided to go for day 3. I do love those biscuits!
After getting my food and examining the receipt I found that they had given me and charged me for a SMALL coffee. All was right with me. I was looking GOOD! It was going to be a GOOD DAY.
