Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

Random:

Today I drove to the nearby town of Saranac Lake, NY, with a buddy of mine. Since we were on the road we decided to go to McDonald's for lunch. I ordered a Quarter Pounder with cheese, no onions (even though I'd specified no onions, and even though it was printed on the receipt as having no onions, I still got onions; nobody ever listens to me). If this had been 1974, it would've come in the above carton. I know this is a totally lame post, but whatever....

I don't remember those boxes, but I do remember the foam containers. And I think it is just a fact that when you order no onions, you get onions. Probably why I still cannot stand onions to this day! It was always the job of the homeliest looking french fry to be the "onion sweeper" for my cheeseburgers! LOL

Not lame at all!! I just LOVE when you remind me of my childhood. Well, duh, that IS the point of your blog, right? Now which one of us is lame?

CJ: I always order no onions. I hate onions on sandwiches.. but then again I always order onion rings when I'm somewhere that serves them.

CTG: No, I'm the lame one. Definitely.

At least you got a burger! I've never been able to get McDonalds to give me the same kind of animal I ask for. If we didn't have Jack in the Box out here, I'd have probably starved as a teenager.

In fairness, they did give me a great fish sandwich one night in the sixties when I asked for something else; I was never able to get it again, though, probably because I kept asking for, you know, FISH!

Hey Joe...

where you going with that... (sorry hendrix flashback :) )

Anyway...

If Quentin Tarentino can create a classic movie line talking about what a quarter pounder with cheese is in France "royale with cheese" then I think you have every right to talk about onions in your blog. :)

When I was a fussy-eater kid, McDonald's was even less accommodating with special orders than they are now. What I went through just to get a PLAIN hamburger . . . .

Jack: There was a nearby Jack in the Box, but we never ate there. My folks didn't like it, and I was such a McDonald's fan it was fine with me..

Marco: I guess you're right. Thanks :^)

Janet: My standard order when I was little was a hamburger fries and a coke. Never varied..

McDonald's burgers never tasted better than when they came in styrofoam containers. I know they weren't as environmentally friendly, but things really haven't been the same since.

Usually I order chicken mcnuggets or a chicken sandwich to avoid the whole onion thing all together. If something doesn't come with onions in the first place, then they can't screw it up
