Went through the McDonald’s drive-through for breakfast this morning. Ordered an Egg McMuffin, a hash brown, and a Diet Coke. I paid for that order, then received a large Diet Coke and a bag of food from the second window, and then I drove away.
Halfway home, I reached into the bag, grabbed my hash brown, and ate it on the way home.
3/4 of the way home, I reached into the bag, pulled out a sausage egg and cheese biscuit, said a few swearwords, and then ate it… even though it wasn’t anywhere close to what I ordered.
Upon arriving home, I picked up the bag from the passenger seat, to take inside and throw away. It seemed heavy for an empty bag, so I reached inside and pulled out a sausage egg and cheese McGriddle. I put the McGriddle in the refrigerator, figuring I might as well eat it later.
As I walked across the kitchen to throw away the empty bag, it still felt a little bit too heavy. So, I reached inside and pulled out a breakfast burrito. (Breakfast burritos are yucky because they have peppers in them, so I threw away both the empty bag and the breakfast burrito.)
Although I didn’t get the Egg McMuffin that I was craving, that’s a pretty good haul for the price. Unfortunately however, I imagine that there was some poor soul this morning who ordered three breakfast sandwiches, and ended up opening a bag that had only an Egg McMuffin and a hash brown in it. Whoever you are out there… sorry.
I’m not sure if the idiot here is the person who handed me the wrong bag, or me, for not checking what was in the bag until I was halfway home.
