10:25 a.m. at the McDonald’s Drive Through:
Me: Can I order lunch?
MD: Not until 10:30.
Me: Well, can I order lunch and then just wait?
MD: No sorry.
Me: Ok, then just a diet coke please.
…..5 minutes pass waiting for the cars ahead of me…..
10:30 a.m. at the McDonald’s Window:
MD: $1.08 please.
Me: Can I add to my order?
Me: Does your clock say 10:30?
Me: Great it’s lunchtime now.
I’m a rule follower. And now I’m happy….with my faux Chic-Fil-A sandwich….because we don’t have a Chic-Fil-A within at least 50 miles of the desert.
