I'm on my way to work. I had an interesting encounter with a patient this week. She was so nice and very grateful. She made a comment about working with the public. i asked her what she did and she replied, "I work at McDonald's".
My mind made an immediate jump to Cathy's story (The Noble Pig) about the McDonald's she drove through being out of straws. My patient exclaimed, "Straws!, How would you like to run out of BUNS!"! She went further,"PICKLES!" I just looked at her, I didn't dare laugh. "Can you imagine telling every customer they can only order chicken nuggets or a salad? GRIM. I asked THE question, "Can't you send someone to the store?"
And the answer is, NO, corporate policy. You have to wait for the BUN man, or the PICKLE man, or the STRAW man. Remember, "Where's the beef"? It's with corporate.
Not the minimum wage employee at the window. We don't need to eat there anyway. We should all just show up at the NP's and eat chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. Don't forget to cast your vote over at the Best Blogs website.
