Mc"Crap"fe (Yeah, Yeah, I Know...)

The McDonald's between 16th and 18th St. on Blue Island

So the McDonald's by my house is finally installing the espresso machine in their "McCafe" corner of the restaurant. For the record, I hate McDonald's but when the grocery store is closed and I'm craving soda or sweet tea at 10 p. m., Mickey D is the only way to go. Or dollar sundaes, unless their ice-cream machine is broken, which has happened wayyyyy too many times this last year (There's something wrong here when McD doesn't have ice-cream on the hottest day of the year). So, this particular McDonald's is notorious for fucking up the simplest order, and don't even dream of modifying anything, the cashier will get this blank look on her face and start malfunctioning, being the robot that she is. Although I must admit, they're getting a little better at customer service but I mean, come on, it's fucking McDonald's, right, what is there to fuck up? An espresso drink, of course!
So I'm just waiting to see how long it will be before they start messing up my coffee. Cos if they can screw up a simple breakfast order, they sure as hell will fuck up an espresso drink!

4 cheer(s)!:

So america is finally getting a McCafe? When I was living in Australia those were everywhere, I thought it was just an aussie thing. Like the restaurant has two separate parts one for regular food and the other half is the mcCafe. I've only had drinks there a couple of times, but I hear it's generally not too bad. I still would avoid mcdonalds though, at all cost!
I use to work at mcdonalds when I was 15 and it's not a very sanitary place, and something was always breaking down. Once the oven broke and it cost the store 30,000 to replace, we couldn't serve any meat for like a week, can you imagine how pissed people were?

Kev: I'd rather have a Burger King!

Jen: I go to Dunkin Donuts for my coffee now, although their prices have been more and more like Starbucks' lately.
