McDonald Experience

We drove by McDonalds the other day because the kids want the Shrek watches that comes with the happy meal. As hubby ordered, the sales attendant asked " What drink do you want?" My husband said that we don't want any drink. he lady then said "Oh you have to have a drink with the happy meal." I thought it was kind of unnecessary that we have to buy a drink f we don't want to. We did not need it anyway since we are going to eat the food in our home.

I was kind of upset about it because they are forcing you to buy a drink. I told the kids that we won't buy anymore of those happy meals as it made me unhappy lol.

Maybe this is one way of telling us to avoid fast foods. It's not that we always do because we seldom go there. I just find it ridiculous how the system works.

  1. I think the fastfood server was wrong when she said that you have to order drinks to go with your meals. That is infringing on your right to buy only what you want to buy. Even if I will be buying only a small sachet of french fries, I will not relish the idea that the server will tell me that I have to order more. You are right, it is no longer a happy meal since you were not happy with their service. Next time that a similar incident will occur, insist on talking to the manager to make your complaint. You are still living in a free country, aren't you? Thanks for the intriguing post. God bless you all always.

  3. Drink comes with the meal so technically it's Free but included in the charge. SO You just over paid for your meal. It's always good to just grab a juice even if you don't drink them right away the kids can keep them in the fridge for a later day.

    You cheated yourself if you didn't get something.

  12. That doesn't make any sense. The drink comes with the meal, it's included in the charge... so why does it matter if you don't take it. I don't understand why they would force you to take a drink.

    Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog & following. I am following back. Have a great weekend!

  13. I agree completely! today we were at Subway and I ordered a small drink, but the guy said that the large would save me money. The large is like a gallon of milk! The sizes are crazy! Anyway, I agree that we should not have to get a drink. Hopping by for the Friday Follow! You have a new follower! Come visit me at Mama's Little Chick.

  24. That is really stupid that they MAKE you order a drink. Thanks for stopping by my place. I love your different blogs.

  25. That's crazy. If you don't want a drink they shouldn't force you. We stopped going to McDonald's all together their food is too expensive and isn't really tasty. Sometimes we pop in just for the toys which they sell for 1-2 bucks. Thanks for popping by on Friendly Fridays :) I look forward to check out some more of your posts.
