Normally, when a fast-food joint angers me, I tend to brush it off as the consequence of hiring so many disaffected teenagers and unmotivated adults who act like teenagers, but this last time was the final straw.

This all began when, after done with Span 2311, I decided to pick up two double-cheese burgers on my way back to my wonderful apartment and wonderful group of roommates who were surely passed out on the couch from one-too-many drinks or joints. I hate cooking in that place because of their sloth and filth so much that I willingly spend the $2.14 it costs for two burgers. A normal day, for sure. At the counter, however, as I pulled out my credit card to pay for the purchase, something in me let out an exasperated ôWTF?ö when the pimple-faced cashier announced that my bill was $2.76. Enraged, I pointed to the board above her head and showed her that the burger was advertised for $1.00. To which she replied ôWe changed the price this morning, so itĺs still $1.29ö. I asked to see a manager and she gave me the same line that despite their false advertising, I still owed their company $2.76 for two fucking hamburgers that were barely worth the dollar I usually pay.

But maybe youĺre asking yourself ôGee, Vissario, itĺs only $.29.ö Though that is right, there are two problems here; one, I wasnĺt informed that the price hike was made until after I was set up to purchase the hamburgers and, two, none of the managers seemed to understand that their company through their own sloth had lied to me about the price. LIED TO ME. It would be like my stock broker, right before he took the commission out of the money I gave him to invest, decided that he would raise it by 29% from 5.5% to around 7%. They lied to me, but worse, they didnĺt even find the need to apologize about it until after I pointed it out to them in front of the long line of customers backing up behind me. That felt good; fucking up their productivity for the sake of reprimanding them on their bad franchise.

I have made an oath on my honor to never again visit any McDonaldĺs in either this country or another until they decide to send me a letter apologizing for hiring such a group of lazy, deceitful, and arrogant employees incapable of recognizing when and where they goof up on things so basic to any business. Please, share with me either your hate of McDonaldĺs or the modern franchise system in this country.

my biggest problem with mcdonald's is how they are trying to revamp the mcdonald's brand by upgrading the atmosphere in their store. right near my apartment building there is a mcdonalds that has mahogany paneling on the walls, leather couches and chairs, a marble "M" on the lobby floor, and two (2) wood burning fireplaces placed throughout the restaurant. It is also two floors with an additional eating area and patio upstairs, and has a big gradiose staircase leading up to it.

The first time I walked in there I was taken aback. I asked the girl working the counter what the hell was going on here. She said that they are trying to remarket themselves as a "restaurant environment".

what the fuck man. you dont go to mcdonalds to contemplate life while staring into the fireplace. you go to mcdonalds for a cheap fatty burger and a sleazy atmosphere. wheres the greasy floors? wheres the creepy pedophile "ronald mcdonald" statue? wheres the shitty chairs attached to the tables with thick steel bars?

Maybe you shouldn't go to McDonald's. I'd expect you to at least be resistant to the marketing tactics that take advantage of most people, but I see you're just blindly following what the advertising executives tell you in the name of "convenience" and "economy", even though eating from the dollar menu is anything but. The destructive environmental agriculture practices you support are destroying this planet and you deserve the clogged arteries and reduced lifespan that is a direct result of such an irresponsible and destructive diet. Though you say you're a champion of change, you clearly are not. It's easy to rant against consumerism and global capitalism on the internet and then go down the street and buy a double whopper, isn't it?

I've said many times that I am not above the system. In fact, what I have said is that, being a part of the system, I must do what it takes to survive in it. I criticize, bitch, moan, and complain for the purpose of gradually changing what I see as incorrect within our society; the pointless consumption of resources used for nothing more than to consume resources. Things like huge SUVs and gigantic mansions which allow for displays of wealth rather than utility.

The consumption of that hamburger, via McDonald's, and the subsequent pollution it inspires is a consequence of the way in which food is supplied in this country. If I had instead gone to Wal-Mart, bought the buns, beef, and ketchup individually, I would not be substantially hurting global capitalism, or necessarily helping it, more than I would be purchasing a hamburger at McDonald's. Essentially, Ice, your argument is a red herring that assumes there is some feasible way, aside from nonexistence, to prevent wastefulness under the capitalist system we all are captive too.

But those arguments are easy, aren't they?

What vissario is saying is that, since you can't help but kill other living beings to survive, be it plants or animals, you might as well go shoot random people.

Man, I sooo want to have one of those ice-creams at McDonald's. Soon...

dude why would you want him to bite your ballsOMG why is Dad kissing that guy?!?

Anyway I would've told you to fuck off if I was working there and you bitched at me for .29 cents. It's people like you that make working in the service industry a living hell. Did the manager change the price? The cashier? No. So stop bitching at them you retard.

Also I would spit in your food.zing
