Typical Mess

Online: 3.50 minutes Order Wait: ~3 minutes Quality: Poorly assembled

We were at the local mall this Sunday so my high school son and I decided to grab a quick bite at McDonald's. I secured a table, he bought the food. When he returned he said, "You're not going to be happy."

He was referring to the way the mustard, ketchup, etc. were smeared all over the inside of the hamburger wrapper. He knows I have a critical eye for quality and it was easy to see that this wrapping job was not too good. The funny thing is that the store was not busy - a very small line and an apparently normal amount of workers. Why is it OK for their product to look like a disaster? Would anyone buy a pair of Nikes with the insole smeared around the inside and onto the box?

Absolutely! An utter disgrace!
Does this McDonalds care nothing for their customers health? This burger must taste right and look right too if is to be ground up by a customers teeth (real or false) and mixed with spit before being forced down their espophagus by a spasmodic movement of the epiglottis. A burger must be neat in order to survive this sort of treatment and the submersion in stomach bile that follows. Science has shown that non neat burgers do not allow extraction of all the vital nutrients before the burger residue is sprayed out of the customers anus onto the inside of a gleaming white porcelain toilet bowl. A toilet bowl furthermore uninfected with stray public hairs or rectal matter!

This McDonalds must pick up its act!

You "have a critical eye for quality," but you eat at McDonalds?

That's a contradiction or cognitive dissonance or an oxymoron or something.

McDonald's is relatively fast and relatively cheap. They are not relatively good.
