This evening my friend Pat and I were walking a mutual friend of ours back to his lab. After we dropped off Adrian, we took a small walk around the Forestry building. I was getting hungry. Pat suggested we just go to McDonald’s to pick something up. I know their food is bad for me, but I agreed nonetheless.
When I got there, I ordered a two-cheeseburger meal to go. We arrived back at SJC and retired to our separate rooms. I grabbed one of the burgers and threw it in my microwave to heat it up. I wanted it to be nice and toasty while I watched the 11pm news.
I sat down at my desk and unwrapped my cheeseburger. I had my eyes on some sports highlights when I bit into the burger. It tasted fine, but I detected something was missing. Being a veteran consumer of burgers, I knew something was not right. I looked down at my food. The burger was awfully thin, even for a McDonald’s burger.
I carefully opened my burger to reveal its contents. There, I found ketchup, mustard, onions, a pickle, and a slice of cheese. The supposed “meat patty” was nowhere to be seen. I was dumbfounded. I ran over to Pat’s room to let him look at it. Adam was in the hallway and I showed him as well. I said there was no way the other burger was missing the meat as well. We went back to my room.
I grabbed the other burger and opened it. Same damn thing. No meat. I was mad. I walked all the way to the Village to essentially get two cheese sandwiches with some ketchup and mustard. You want proof? Look below.
If you know me at all, this type of consumer shenanigans is right up my alley. You can bet the farm I’m calling up McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada tomorrow morning. It’s going to be fantastic. I can’t wait. I am wondering what type of response they’ll give me. I don’t think they’re stupid enough to make excuses, but it intrigues me what they will say.
I will keep you posted on this one.
