Conversations with clerks volume 5
Clerk: Hi, and welcome to McDonalds, order when you are ready.
Me: I am ready, boy am I ready.
Clerk: What can I get you?
Me: I will take 12 McRib sandwiches with no onions or pickles....
Clerk: Anything else?
Me: Yes, a diet coke.
Clerk: For here or to go?
Me: Do I look like I am prepared to eat 12 McRibs in one sitting?
Me: I mean I no brown is not the most slimming of colors and all but do I look that fat?
Me: I mean obviously I am watching my calorie intake, I ordered a diet coke.
Clerk: Uh... OK.
Me: I am just stoked about the return of the McRib and want to enjoy its savory barbecue flavor all the time.
Me: Have you ever tried one? They are delicious.
Clerk: OK man, I get it. You like the McRib.
Me: Like it, let me tell you something sister, I love it.
Clerk: Are you a secret shopper or something?
Me: Nope, I am a fan of your product though.
Clerk: OK.... Your total is........
Me: Worth every penny. I'd like to see those bastards at burger king try to keep up with these McRibs though eh?
Clerk: Yea, they are pricks over there man. I effing hate them.
Me: Thats the kind of company loyalty we like to see.
