Ripped Off by the Golden Arches

*Sigh*...*deep breath*...Tonight after work I went walking with my friend Amber. Yeah! Applause...

But then on the way home, I was tempted by the Golden Arches. I mean, I have to pass right by them and they called out to me "You don't have to dine alone. Come dine with us!" My response was to immediately veer into the drive thru lane...thus still dining alone but whatever. Before I knew it, I ordered a double cheeseburger! This is my Achillees heel of fast food. I love 'em. So, this is my order, one double cheeseburger with only mustard, lettuce, and cheese and one yogart parfait. I look at my order on the screen and to my dismay I was charged 20 extra cents for lettuce. Ok, so, I didn't get the pickles, ketchup, and onions, saving Mickey D's at least twenty cents, I would think. I mean, doesn't this wash out to an even trade?

I must find another route home, lol. :)


  1. Now, the golden arches never get my $$, I'm not a big fan, but... Wendy's fries- ahhh, i love them! Although I did love them before they changed them a few months ago :(

  2. I am a big fan of McDonald's too! Luckily, the 2 we have in our town are out of my way so I am not tempted to go there. They are building a third one though and it will be only half a block from my house!! My only hope is if I make myself walk there and walk back!!

  3. Chinamommy-Agreed! Those new sea salt fries or whatever they are at Wendy's are horrible!

    Angela-Be strong girlfriend! Think of all those cute vintage dresses you love. :)
