I know I have posted before about how dumb I think McDonalds is. Never said I would stop eating there, but I probably should from the whole health and fitness perspective.
Yesterday I picked up food there for one of my kids that didn't want Taco Bell like the other two and my wife. I saw their patented sign just before the drive-thru that said "for faster service, please have your money ready."
I always mentally reply "For EVEN FASTER service, please have my food ready!"
Of course, since I had ordered something with a slight change to how it is normally slapped together, I expected a slight delay. What actually happened was that I was directed around the corner to a parking spot with a sign in front of it that I was not surprised by, but also didn't expect.
"This spot reserved for parked drive-thru customers."
There were two spots.
Want me to repeat that for you?
"Parked Drive Thru Customers"

WTF for Friday April 13, 2007

I should really quit reading the news on my mobile phone. I have to rant a bit. The quote below relates to Jury Selection for the Padilla trial that is about to start.

"I'm confident there's a group of people out there like that who have no idea who Padilla is or who have no idea what a dirty bomb is or isn't," Anthony said. "I imagine that's the group they're ultimately going to get to court."

I thought juries were supposed to be impartial, not stupid.
