Just a quick post today as it's game night and I have to finish prepping a character.
I took a break from the grind at the firm today for lunch and headed to the local Golden Arches. For setting purposes, this particular McDonald's is one of the top five busiest in the city. And, for the sake of argument, remember that McDonald's itself is probably the busiest (or in the top three) hamburger joints in the country-slash-world. Then consider that their french fries are arguably the most popular (or in the top two) in the country.
WHEN ASKED, THIS McDONALD'S WAS OUT OF CATSUP PACKETS.
You heard me: Out. Of. Catsup. or Ketchup. However you want to spell it, this popular purveyor of pomme frites was completely out of packets of sweetened tomato-based condiment. What the...?
I wound up being given a small plastic dressing cup with one squirt of catsup in the bottom.
Sheesh. Fries without catsup. The inhumanity of it all....
