Minor Suckage

This is only minor bad service, but it bothered me. I went through McDonald's drive thru tonight, and part of my order was 2 pumpkin pies. I got home and found that they gave me apple pies. Now, this isn't the suckage. Although it was irritating to go back to McDonald's, I understand mistakes happen, and this is the first time that McDonald's has made a mistake on one of my orders. So, not a big deal.

When I went back to McD's, I walked inside, and a young woman behind the counter called me over. I explained the problem. She said, "Ok," took the bag with the apple pies, and gave me another bag with 2 pumpkin pies. And that's it. There was no apology. Nothing like a "Sorry 'bout that." I know it's not a huge deal. it didn't ruin my night, and it's not going to affect my life or financial situation, like some of the situations described here, but it still got on my nerves. Where did politeness go?
