"I'd like a number 1, no pickles no onions, with a coke." Simple enough, right? Wrong! She says "Number 1 no pickles no onions and coke, right?""uhum." I respond"Is that all? she asks"Yes." I respond, again."So, that's one order of one number 1 no pickles no onions. right?""YES DAMNIT....gimme my damned food already" I think to myself!
It's like a collective retardedness is looming over the United States now a days because this has happened to me so much lately in many aspects of life and also with many types of people. Not just the McDonald's employees but also nurses and such.Example...I went to the doctors the other day because I had an abdominal pain for a couple of days that was bothering me. So a nurse comes to do a preliminary questionaire from Hell.
"What brings you here today?"
"I've got a pain in my abdominal area that has been bothering me lately"
"Hmm, that's weird....so your belly hurts?"
At this point I'm thinking "belly? Am I five years old? I thought I said 'abdominal area'" but I respond with "Yes!"
"Okay, Ill send the Doctor in"
See what I mean? It's like people are walking around so unsure of their ability to comprehend one another that they need to hear everything 3 times. Twice from you and once from themselves. It's so annoying and time consuming. That is why I am starting the "walk-away movement". The way that works is that if your retarded ass can't understand or insists on me repeating everything I say I am simply going to walk away from you. If I need to tell the McDonald's lady my order more than once then I walking into Wendy's.
