I am a fast food junkie. Can’t help it, I love the stuff! There are very few chains that don’t get me excited: Arby’s (except for the mozz sticks and curly fries, which I love), Long John Silvers (granted I do get the crave for their chicken, but I don’t eat any seafood), and I pretty much love all the rest.
That has actually nothing to do with my post though, but if you’re curious – Taco Bell is my favorite. Moving on to my actual story…
I drive by the Burger King on Dale Mabry pretty much everyday. Their sign is bugging the heck out of me though. “Try our new $1 buck double” $ plus ‘buck’ is redundant. The only way they can get away with this is if it’s actually called a Buck Double, and honestly who in their right mind would name it that? haha Buck Double.
And speaking of cheeseburger names…………
Dad and I took Pop Pop to McDonald’s for lunch today. Personally I’m getting a little burned out on McDonald’s, but it was his choice. He says, “Let’s go to that Big Mac’s” but he never actually orders a Big Mac.
- Me: I’d like a double cheeseburger plain.
- Employee: You do know we call that a McDouble now, don’t you?
Excuse me? I’m sorry. I didn’t know it was possible to actually get reprimanded by an employee of a fast food chain for failing to call a double cheeseburger by its proper name. My bad.
