Sad times at Mickey D's [View all]

Last edited Sun Dec 2, 2012, 01:41 PM - Edit history (1)

First of all, I rarely step foot in a McDonalds. The only thing more rare is buying gas at an Exxon/Mobil or buying anything at Wal Mart. But I was out and about yesterday morning, doing some errands, and I stopped in for an "egg" and cheese biscuit. Long line at the drive through, so I went inside. Holy crap! I was waited on by a woman that had to be 90 years old. No joke. She was a very sweet lady, but really had no business working here.

The kitchen wasn't keeping up, so she had three orders on hold (my simple "egg" and cheese biscuit request among them). She couldn't keep track. The poor woman would walk back to the serving station, then have to walk back up the register to check the receipts to see what she has gone back to the serving station for. Over and over again. Seriously, half a dozen times, she'd check the list of waiting orders, then walk back to the serving area and appear to forget what she was there for.

It just made me very sad that this dear old woman was having to bust her hump for $8.25 an hour (CT's minimum wage) at her age. She should be at home having someone wait on her.

(semi-rant off).
