So I like McDonalds coffee. I like their hot chocolate too.
I really like them mixed together.
So once a week or so I go to a McDonalds, order a small black coffee (8 oz), order a small hot chocolate (8 oz) and ask them to make the hot chocolate in a large cup and top it of with the coffee (16 oz)…
Almost invariably, with one exception (and this includes managers) they make a small hot chocolate in a small cup (measured and dispensed by a machine, mind you, all they do is push a button for “small hot chocolate) then they pour a small cup of coffee and then pour each of those into a large (16 oz) cup.
Apparently, (with one exception) these folks cannot understand that 8 plus 8 equals 16……so they waste two cups.
It is as if the idea of any innovation is beyond them.
But they think they are worth $15 per hour.
Most of the ones I see ain’t worth $3 per hour.
Oddly, When I (and my friends) worked for minimum wage (admittedly a LONG time ago), I (we) tried to learn, and excel and BE WORTH MORE so I could get paid more. Or found a job that did pay more. Demanding more money at a fast food place was an exercise in frustration…
