ATTENTION WAL-MART CUSTOMERS ....
"Will the customer who ordered the twenty-five double cheeseburgers please return to the McDonald's? Your order is ready and your food is getting cold." - as requested from the McDonald's shift manager.
True story. Those words came right out of my mouth and right over our intercom.
I think it was for a Little League team as I saw a man go running by with a case of soda and a bag of ice.
The McDonald's woman was truly hacked off though - because she said he'd already been 15 minutes after the pick-up time - and they'd warned him that they were not going to re-make the hamburgers if they got cold.
On another note, they took out the McDonald's soda machine that was along the front registers this weekend. Also gone are all the cup dispensers from the registers. Customers can no longer order McDonald's from the Wal-Mart registers.
I asked the McDonald's manager and he said they had lost thousands over the past year from customers and associates grabbing a cup and getting a free drink. The cost of the cups alone was killing them, he said. So much for synergy. The rotten-to-the-core scamming public wins again.
