RE: Latest from McD"S
The "I'm lovin it" add deal is a turn off, about on par with BK's nerd who never had a whopper campaign that flopped 2 decades ago at least for me.I guess I'm another who does't wait for, won't go back to Micky D's or have any more quarte pounders or big maks or whatever. They just aren't very good. In the late eighties I used to stop once in a while on the way to work in the morning if I had a hankering for a bacon egg and cheese buttermilk biscuit sandwhich. Problem was, far more often than not they would tell me after I paid that I'd have a couple minute wait, please pull over and they would bring out the order. Between 5 and as long as 15 minutes later they would stroll out with teh stuff. last time was about 1989, I paid and I was told it would be 10 minutes, I asked for a substitute item that was on the shelf ready to go and between the teen at teh counter and theri computer/accounting interface they could not handle it. That was the last voluntary visit. When the kids were 3-6 years old we had to make the occasional obligatory visit, mostly to use the play place maze. The littel chicken taco thingies were about the only thing there we would consider eating.
I remeber in the early eighties when they came out with the chicken nuggets and I said to myself "Finally, a food so simple even mcD's can't mess it up. Then I tried one of the little grissle and cartalidge filled Pseudo chincken tings floating in a grease solution withing a deep fried membrane and realized they had screwed up yet another simple food item.
Big mac's......I cannot recall having one since the mid eighties and I ain't missing them yet.
