Overheard at the Drive Through

Disembodied Voice of Dim Woman: Welcome to McHideous Clown's, can I help you?

Mr. Green: I'd like a steak, egg, and cheese bagel and a medium Diet Coke.

DVDW: A bacon, egg, and cheese bagel?

MG: No, steak, egg and cheese. And a medium Diet Coke.

DVDW: Do you want the meal or just the sandwich?

MG: Just the sandwich. With the Diet Coke.

DVDW: And that was a large Coke?

MG: No, a medium Diet Coke.

Helpful Display Screen: 1 MEDIUM COKE

DVDW: Okay, please pull around.

MG: [Decides preference for Diet over regular Coke isn't strong enough to justify any further attempts at communication. Shakes head and drives up.]

Dim Woman at Window: [Hands MG medium cold beverage] Here's your coffee!

MG: Thanks. [Takes drink, which turns out to taste like a 50/50 mixture of Coke and Diet.]

And people say the service industries don't take pride in their work anymore! ;)
