Fast food may be fast, but...

Learn your menu and pay attention to orders a little better!

So i know i tweeted and facebooked this, but I figured it was worth blogging and exaggerating on also.

Wednesday for lunch, I ran over to camera co-op and had my BFF meet me at Wendy's for lunch. I had chicken nuggets (value menu hello!) and got some sweet n sour sauce. Side note: Wendy's has the best value menu on the planet.Wendy's is also currently the only sweet n sour sauce I like with my nuggets. I ate WAY too many mcnugget happy meals as a kid at McDonald's and for longest time the thought of nuggets and sweet n sour just make me sick. Anyway lunch Wednesday was great.

Thursday, I went on down to Village Pizza & Seafood and once again ordered the nugget meal. I hadn't been in years! The menu up on the wall said it came with gravy, french fries, and hush puppies or bread. Sounds great. It says gravy, I don't have to ask for it, gonny be yummy. 'Til I get to my desk and open the bag and there is no gravy to found. What I do see is 2 packs of barbecue sauce. Now...I like an occasional barbecue chicken. But I was expecting gravy. Talk about disappointment! But there I had this barbecue sauc in front of me, and of course I had to just try it. Mistake. It was gross. I think the brand on it said House Recipe and it was just not a tasty barbecue sauce to go with chicken nuggets. Totally ruined my lunch.

Today, I had to go to the post office and a different Wendy's was across the street so I drive on up. There was a car in front of me, none behind me, and not too many in the parking lot, so I don't know why they were in such a hurry. They had a sign on the window that said something like "if you don't get a receipt or a smile from this restaurant call the district manager at such and such number." Well now I just want to go back and call because well, I totally didn't get any smiles. And they totally didn't give me any sweet and sour sauce with my nuggets. I even asked for it while I was ordering and it showed up on the little digital monitor outside and printed on my receipt. So when they handed me bag of food, I did ask for ketchup, but figured the sauce was in there. I watched her grab 3 packs of ketchup toss it in and hand me food without even looking at me. Woo! Ate my nuggets dry today. Gah!

What's weird, I probably haven't eaten this many chicken nuggets all year as I've eaten this week. Unless you count Chic-fil-a, which I totally don't, because their nuggets don't look like everyone else's nuggets, and they taste way better, and the Chic-fil-a we go to in Kemah and Pearland are the beeeest Chic-fil-a restaurants around.

Is it too much to ask that you actually receive what's advertised/what you ask for ? I think not. It cannot be that hard.

Or perhaps I should just start checking my bags before I leave the drive thru window. Maybe.

PS : Don't even get me started on the lack of ketchup they give you. What the hell am i supposed to do with a large fry and 2 packets of ketchup? Tease myself?

I used to love Wendys nuggets the most too when I ate meat. Their honey mustard is like no other. Sometimes I still get it for my fries jus for that taste. Mmmm!
