Anyhow, our return home was marked by a lunchtime detour through our nearest (and newest) McDonald's drive-thru. Ordered the standard Big Mac meal for myself, the Quarter Pounder meal for Lisa, and girl's hamburger Happy Meal for the kid. McDonald's is nowhere near the top of my preferred-foods list, but when it's past 12:30 and the kid's tired and hungry, it'll do.
Unless, of course, you get home, your wife (per usual) opens up the hamburger from the Happy Meal, and finds that someone has already taken a bite from the meat patty.
To say I was pissed would be an understatement. This particular McDonald's location is practically brand new, so their phone number is not yet in my phone book. No matter. The corporation's 1-800 "Customer Satisfaction Line" is easily available on the 'net.
CSR Jeff was a nice enough guy, I suppose. Apologetic and earnest-sounding. He did indeed sound shocked when I told him my story. He took my info, apologized profusely, and promised a callback from someone "higher up" later this week. I accepted that, hung up, and proceeded to swap out my kid's chomped-on patty with one of mine from my Big Mac.
I suppose I could've gone back to the McDonald's location and caused some havoc. But that is just not my style. In this case, probably, it's what I should have done. However, I'll wait and see if the phone call comes, and go from there.
Anybody else have an experience like this?
