McDonald's, your next.

But, that doesn't mean I will be awake when I cook your order. 

Has anyone else noticed when you go through the McDonald's drive through, no matter which McDonald's you go to in the same state or a different state about 50% of the time they get the order wrong? It's on the receipt right, but they still get it wrong in one way or another.

I have been to McDonald's in different states and different ones in the same state. Every time we pick up an order through the drive through window, something is wrong with the order.

Over the weekend, the adults got Chinese and we picked up McDonald's for the kids. Yes, we had a lot of take out over the weekend. It was just one of those weekends where I did not feel like doing a lot of cooking. Well, back to the story. My daughter's sandwich was supposed to be a fish sandwich plain with no cheese or sauce. The fish sandwich had everything on it that we asked not be on the sandwich. My son's chicken sandwich was also supposed to be plain. They gave us the his sandwich with mayo, lettuce and tomato. So, back to McDonald's we went to get the right sandwiches.

Then yesterday, we picked up McDonald's for dinner, because I was sick and couldn't drag myself to the kitchen to cook for everyone. So, McDonald's it was again.Once again the order was incorrect, they were missing a french fry. Considering we just went through this whole ordeal, I checked the order before leaving the parking lot. There is nothing more annoying than having to run back and exchange food, because the order is wrong. That's right up there with the wrong food being delivered. It is called fast food for a reason.

I am beginning to wonder if this is a McDonald's trade mark. Is it a secret joke among all the McDonald's employees? Do they teach this technique during training? If you are a former McDonald's employee, please answer these questions for me. I am puzzled how so many McDonald's nationwide do the same thing.

Maybe know they have us addicted to the fries and the secret sauce on the Big Mac. So, they sit around laughing saying those fools will come back anyway. 


  1. My boy likes to go McDonalds after hockey practice. We eat inside and it is usually a steady stream of people from drive-thru walking in with wrong orders.

    Ever go to that Del Taco on Telegraph in Dearborn Heights? We go there after Tiger games. Always nice people for some reason and big orders don't faze them.

    1. No, my son has been asking us to go there. That's an idea.
