Part the First: Failure to Communicate
SERVER: Can I help the next customer?

BRIAN:Yeah. Can I have a Number 7?

SERVER: Do you want the meal or just the sandwich?

BRIAN: I want just the meal.

SERVER & BRIAN: …

And after a split second, during which we stared at each other – the server ostensibly wondering what the hell I said, and I giving the image I have of myself in my mind’s eye a smack on the head – it finally sunk in and I got my meal.

Proving once again that, in my unguarded moments, I am capable of saying some pretty stupid things.

Part the Second: Asking the Stupid Question
After a month-long renovation, the latest addition to my neighborhood McDonald’s was a selve-serve beverage station.

This is the reason why the following server’s question baffled me after I ordered a meal: “What drink would you like with that?”

It took every ounce of effort I had not to bite back with some witty retort. I mean, when all was said and done, I’d still have to be the one to get my own drink.

The place may have gotten an upgrade, but apparently the people still work according to the old operating system.
