….a simple request right? I pulled up at the drive thru at McDonald’s this afternoon on my way to daughter’s (more on that later) to “help” get ready for Taylor’s first spend the night party. Here’s how my simple order went down:
Me: I’d like the $1.00 sweet tea with extra lemon please.
Them: Would you like to try our frozen strawberry lemonade?
Me: No thank you, just the sweet tea with lemon.
The screen showed my total to be $7.19! I pulled around to pay for my order and the worker said “how did you want that tea?”!! (I’m thinking to myself, WTH is wrong with you people?)
Me: Sweet tea with extra lemon.
I also pointed out the total on the screen was wrong….after which I ponied up $1.10 for my tea.
When I pulled forward to the next window to get my tea she handed me a cup so full the lid would not stay on and one puny lemon! I handed it back to her, asked her to pour out some of the tea, add more ice and two more lemons (please!)
When I got my tea back, it had two lids and no straw!
Later on I’ll be sharing about Taylor’s first ever spend the night party tonight. This weekend is the twin’s 7th birthday(!) and tomorrow will be Jackson’s turn….a swimming party! Here’s a little preview of one of the decorations I worked on for Taylor:
Tissue paper pom poms! So easy and so cute….don’t they look like big roses or peonies?
I’ll share how I made these and more on the birthday party. I hope Shannon survives tonight…..8 girls spending the night, all under 7 years old!
