This One's For Lissa!

Lissa Loo says I need to post something New! What's up with that??? Doesn't she know how hard I work every day of the week trying to get kids WANT to learn something?? Some days I think I would rather run over my own foot with a car than go back to work. Seriously, it is fun for me to come home and read everyone's else's blogs and see the pics and videos they have put up and just enjoy without having to put much effort forth, but since my cousin beckons me to do something more with my time than just relish everyone else's efforts I will post a short story for you.
The other day two cute girls went to Dairy Queen to get some supper for their families. When they arrived at Dairy Queen they thought it best to go inside and order since they were paying separately, and they didn't want to make the ordering too difficult for the employees. The girls walked in laughing and smiling and wondering what they would order. After they perused the menu board they decided on a few meals they thought would satisfy their families. The first girl ordered a couple of kids meals and 2 combo meals. It went something like this....
"I would like 2 kids steak finger meals, and..."
"whould yu lk sjsjhs wth tht?"
"I'm sorry, what did you say?"
"whould yu lk sjsjhs wth tht?"
"Um, I'm still not sure what you said. Could you repeat that one more time?"
"Whould you lk texs tst wth tht?"
"oh, texas toast. Yes. I thought you were going to ask me what I wanted to drink. I just didn't understand your question because I wasn't prepared for that."
"I also want a number one and "
"the combo meal?"
"yes, a number one and a number 7 --six piece."
"number 7 combo meal?"
"yes. 6 piece." the girl turned to look at her cute friend and said "what an idiot!"
Then she asked for her cups for her drinks. She was politely told that she needed to order a combo meal in order to get a drink. WoW! Was this a fun adventure!
Once the girl's orders were delivered to them there was no cream gravy in the kids' meals, so the girls asked for some and then took the meal home.
Once they arrived home they gave the kids their meals and then began to get out the meals for themselves and their spouses.
"Man, they gave me a 4 piece meal and I asked for a 6. That makes me so mad!"
"What is wrong with this gravy?" her husband asked.
"I don't know, let me see it. OH! GROSS!"
It looked like a loogey had been hocked into a cream gravy cup and put in the meal.
"Give me that!" she yelled. "I am taking it back."
Some time passed and the three adults that stayed at the house talked and laughed and wondered what would happen at (the) Dairy Queen when their friend showed up.
The cute girl came back holding a bag with 2 steak fingers and a cup of cream gravy.
"They gave me the 2 steak fingers that they shorted me and some new gravy." she told her friends. Then she let them know what happened at (the) Dairy Queen:
"When I got there I told the manager to look at the gravy. He said, 'OH GROSS! What IS that?' I told him it was the cream gravy that was in my 4 piece steak finger dinner that should have been a 6 piece. He said, 'Well, would you like some nacho cheese to replace that?' I said, 'Nacho cheese? I don't think my steak fingers will taste very good in nacho cheese! Don't you have any more cream gravy?' He said he didn't know, he would have to check. Man, they are idiots! How do you run out of cream gravy at Dairy Queen? Anyway, I got the food and maybe we can eat now."

Well, now you know that if you run out of cream gravy....nacho cheese should be a good alternate!

That is a memory I am sure those cute girls will never forget and Dairy Queen probably won't be a the menu for a while unless they get some sudden urge for nacho cheesy steak fingers!!!!

isn't that the truth!

Michael said...

So, which one of you drove back to the DQ?

Wonderful Windy said...

Michael, I, Windy drove back to DQ. I felt that I kept my calm very well considering the fact that I am my mom's daughter. I just kept thinking about how funny that would be to see her really give it to them!

y'all are better than me....i don't mind laying into the idiots that work at the fast food establishments. just today in fact i ordered two happy meals at an undisclosed restaurant "both for girls" and with chocolate milk. when i got to the window they handed me one happy meal and one chocolate milk. i of course immediately waved to get their attention only to tell them that they have once again screwed up my order. the nice, spanish speaking gentleman (such a convenient choice for the window attendant) proceded to tell me that i had only ordered one happy meal. "really?, i said. because i have two hungry kids in my car. i don't see why i would just order one kid a meal and just let the other one starve, but if you say so."
i don't think he appreciated my sarcasm, but it is questionable as to if he even understood half of what i said.
after staring at me for a few seconds i said, "well, i need another happy meal, could you get that for me?"
i was then asked to pull up to park and wait. my fav! like, it is my fault that the drive thru is backing up. whatever. so, i waited and watched 6 people go by with their happy meals (at least one would hope) before i got out of my car and marched into the undisclosed establishment on a mission to get the happy meal and chocolate milk that i had to order twice.
i walked in only to find yet another idiot holding a happy meal with a receipt and my change with a look of confusion on her face. i said, "that's mine." and if you can believe this, i had to ask for the chocolate milk that went with it, once again.
how hard is it people?

Caci said...

that is hilarious....for me to read about, not for you to go through. And I am glad you are not naming restaurants, because it makes it harder for me to figure out where you were when you say "Happy Meal". That way no one at the undisclosed restaurant can say that you damaged their name or reputation! Not only did I name the restaurant...I put a pic up of their sign!(or a sign very similar to theirs....in the 50's!)

That reminds me of the last time that someone screwed up my order. Well, they actually got the order right, but the food was inedible. Aunt Renee and I whipped into the Chick-fil-a drive thru one Saturday about mid afternoon. I was starving and as Caci and Windy know, when Mom finally decides to eat...she's hungry. We order 2-6 piece chicken stips (not in a meal) and 2 drinks. When we pull away with the food, I open my box of chicken,my mouth watering with anticipation. I take one look at what may have been delicious chicken strips the day before, but today, I did not recognize them as something that you would put into your mouth or even be able to chew for that matter. Aunt Renee looks at me, and I look at her. She says.."well, whatcha gonna do? Are you going to eat that or do you want me to pull back thru the drive in?" I said, "Oh no! You just pull in right here." "I'll be right back", I said and was already half way out of the car before it was completely stopped. I go up to the counter and as usual have to wait PATIENTLY for my turn. "My I help you?" the unsuspecting idiot said. "I certainly hope so because I just paid you a month's salary for two 6 piece chicken strips and this is what you handed me out that window over there. I am really hungry and I would appreciate it if you would save these for the next customer who is stupid enough to drive through and order chicken strips and see if you can find me some chicken strips that you at least cooked some time today." When I left I had some chicken strips that were so hot that I had to wait 10 minutes before I could even put them in my mouth and a handful of free chick-fil-a food coupons.

Caci said...
