broken promises

Last night at McDonald's drive thru
McDonald's: Good evening. Can i take your oder?
Me: 1 McRoyal combo please, but can you please double check my order is complete?
McDonald's: sorry sir?
Me: last time i was here, my order was missing a 9 piece McNuggets
McDonald's: You come back and we give you
Me: I was already at home and its really a pain to comeback all the way
McDonald's: OK

awkward moment of silence

Me: errm.. in case this happens again, who can i talk to or call?
McDonald's: When you come next time for order, you mention and we give you missing order from last time

Me: Oh okay .. then can i have it now? It was a 9 piece McNuggets - sweet n' sour dip please

starts screaming something to the people inside

McDonald's: sure thing sir, they will include it in your order
Me: Thank you.. you are very kind

I got to the other window

McDonald's: Here is your order sir - come again

reached home,
opened bag
no McNuggets inside

  • There's a saying that most people have to have something happen to them 3 times before they remember to double-check!

    I hope that you remember your clothes in the morning before you step out the door!


    Tell me - do the UAE McD staff here ask you for the second sale like they do in the rest of the world? Would you like fries/shake/pie with that? I've never been to a McDs here!

  • i've mentioned this on CG's blog before

    stop eating KFC , HARDEES, MC etc.. it's all tasteless rubbish, insipid pieces of flesh with lots of mayonaisee and a few lettuce leaves to give the impression of a healthy meal/snack.
    even the french fries taste more like something thrown out of a spaceship then any real fries..

    make your own burgers, your own fries..

    oh wait.. we're dubaians..we're too busy to do such mundane stuff..

    (bangs head on the wall in despair)

  • I have to say it has been AGES since i've ordered a meal and ordered the incorrect item, this coming from someone who used to order KFC anywhere from 1-4 times a week, because their chicken was so damn tasty (no i'm not fat, 70 kg's muahahahaha, though i'm probably due for a heart attack in the next 10 minutes)
    If you disagree with KFC/McDonalds/etcetcetc, why not order food from places like antar cafeteria (shawarma restaurant), their food is just as damn tasty.

  • OK I give up. ive been wanting to ask and at the risk of sounding dumb (like whats new) Please tell me when you write Roman arabic (ie arabic in english) whats with the number 7 and 3 inserted into words at times?

  • 7 is for H
    e.g. Habibi would be 7abibi

    3 is for Ain
    e.g. AlAin would be Al 3ain
