1. That's why old rich owners

Of the old deliberately incompetent companies need to pay taxes and be held
finanially accountable for thier monopoly bullshit. If that fails to undermine this "relationship" maybe yank some corporate charters and declare some things as a public service.

From mc donald's to verizon they all need a good ass kicking. And new innovators need to be supported in thier dinosaur killing technologies . Old companies that become monopolies and behave treachously need to have competition and the government needs to quit coddling these fuckers with tax breaks etc.

Starve the beasts so new better things can grow on the ashes of deliberate failure.

And this deliberate failure game needs to be made illegal.

Thier game undermines capitalism which carries the seeds of its own destruction anyways. Capitalism fails when some succeed by no merits of thier own..

3. As someone who has worked in big law firms, I can attest to how some businesses cling to the old way

of doing this. There is sooo much inefficiency and waste in big law. All of it in the name of the almighty billable hour.

4. McDonald's doesn't pay for the maintenance so they don't care.

It could be that they're just looking out for a friend.

6. I don't think I have ever been told the frosty machine at Wendy's is

broke but at McDonalds it like it is broke 50% of the time. McDonalds is the cheapest fast food place I ever seen. They never leave any condiments, napkins or straws out for customers. I never use the drive thru at McDonalds because they screw up about half the orders.
That is quite a racket they have going with Taylor. Apparently Wendy's and others must use the Kytch software.

I was at McDonalds one morning a couple months ago when a drive thru customer ask for the sauce used on the Chicken Nuggets
for their Egg McMuffin. They charged the customer 20 cents extra for the sauce and the customer and manager got into a screaming match over it with several f bombs back and forth. They ended up out in the parking lot screaming the COPs were called to break it up. The customer ended up telling the manager to stick the order up her ass.
