Turn My Lips Blue

Ok, yesterday I had my final paediatric nursing exam. I had not had much to eat before hand, so afterwards I was understandablyy ravenous. I caught a bus from Uni and went to the local McDonald's and ordered a coke and an egg and cheese McMuffin.

Now, I don't eat pork, ham or bacon at all. It's not for religious reasons so much, or at all, but simply because I hate the taste and because I love pigs and don't want to slaughter them.

I ordered my Muffin at about 10:20 and was prepared for a wait, simply because they have to make it fresh for me. No sweat. Normally it only takes about 2 minutes. 2 minutes pass. No Muffin. 5 minutes. No Muffin. The serving girl looks at me apologetically and asks the prep people where my muffin is. 5 minutes they say.

Meanwhile, other people are ordering McMuffins and receieving them, fresh ones too. 7 minutes. One of the prep girls comes out and starts dancing and chatting to the serving girls. Another staff member comes to work, goes up the back and starts talking and laughing.

10 minutes. I ask where my Muffin is. The serving girl turns around and asks the prep people. The girl who was dancing before suddenly yells 'oh! The McMuffin!'. Finally, 12 minutes later my breakfast is ready. Not happy. They complimented me with a free hashbrown, which was nice but I didn't really want one in the 1st place.

I paid $4.50 for a fastfood breakfast and had to wait 12 minutes. Bad service? Just a little.

Edit: I should mention, that I am Australian and all figures are in Aus dollars (obviously)
