McDonald's parking lot


A pudgy older man yells this as he storms across the parking lot. He's pissed and stomping like a child. When he reaches his car, he angrily fumbles the door handle and when he finally gets it, he opens the door, then slams it closed again-- he does this a couple of times before getting in the car and closing the door with a final angry slam.

His wife has seen this behavior before, you can tell by her calm walk and blank expression. He's hollering for her to hurry up and get in the car and she is ignoring him and making a point to take her extra sweet time. I know she was taking extra time because when he turned his anger on her with the "hurry up!", her eyebrow moved just enough to say, "surely you're not talking to me in that tone of voice," and her casual steps turned into sauntering steps.

The time was just after 10:30 and this guy was having this piss fit because he'd just missed the breakfast menu.

kay -- I waitressed for years -- you're right, some people get weird about their food. And at McDonald's? Dude, it's all the same, just different shapes -- take it easy.

Lime -- Yeah, I wasn't worried about that wife at all, she was subtle but clear.

hehe I saw a couple like that in TJ Maxx, why go there with the wife when you KNOW she is going to want to look through Housewares too! I mean really, Honey just heads back there right away and looks at the food items and junk so I can find him. Housewares signals that I am through with the other departments. Plus he may just get another bottl eof obscure hot sauce for his mighty collection.

The mall? He heads to the Cigar Store and his cell phone. If he gets Cigars I can pretty much get whatever I want. Oh and Coffee, he like to order me coffees so complicated it's a stuggle for him to rememeber.

God, I love my husband. Amazing what you find in the lost and found.

it's all the same anyway...dont tell me the sausage biscuit doesn't sometimes make itself into a single hamburger :) when i worked at McD's (alongside K sometimes), you'd get to see all kinds.
what i was shocked at tho, was this weekend we stopped to get JD something to eat at mcD's at 10:40 and they were still serving breakfast...until 11!!!! whoa! i was shocked.
