No, I'm Not A Kid But I Want The Kid Meal!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

***This blog was written last week, but I never got a chance to post it.***

Dear Fast Food Employee,

Yes, I ordered from the kids menu. Let me tell you why...

1). Because I want to and you need to accept that.
2). I don't want 6 HUGE chicken tenders and an entire basket of fries. I honestly only want the chicken bites and the small fries.
3). I want the kid toy!
4). Money is tight, SUPER tight and I'm SO not joking about that.

Can I ask you a question? What difference does it make to you? It's all the same right? Just because I'm not in pigtails doesn't mean you can make snarky little comments under your breath and make fun of me for it. Don't look at me funny, I don't appreciate it and it's not becoming of your establishiment. Yes, I got the apple juice and yes, I want the apples that come with the meal. GET OVER IT!

Oh, and those employees who are nice to me and high five me for getting the smaller/CHEAPER meal, YOU ROCK.

    If that's what I want then I don't have to explain that to anyone. I love a hamburger from Mcdonalds & small fry but it's the vanilla shake that gets me twisted...lol

    God bless & WE are NEVER too young to emoticon playin with toys...

    I've gotten the kids meal for the toy.....(not even for the calories).
    No one ever said a thing to me...and even if they did, I would just laugh.
    Hey ... I remember going to a video store and renting
    now that's when you need to explain yourself to the clerk
    uh sir, the Disney film is for my niece and the porn film is for my mother.

    Oh, I know. It happens all the time. You have to consider the source, that's all. The other night I was at a screening, sitting next to a woman twice my size, and I didn't like the movie and decided to leave, and when I squeezed in front of her (really quickly), she said, "Gimme a break" in a really sarcastic way. I wish I was the kind of person who could just brush it off quickly, but she did get to me in a weird way. I think those of us who are sensitive (and artistic :) are still vulnerable - because we have to be. At the same time, don't you wish you were the kind of person who just reacts to those yucky people with just a hearty brush-off?

    Were they actually that rude?? Sorry if they were. It shouldn't matter what size you get it goes into your body...not theirs.

    I agree! Who cares if you want to order the kids meal. Go you!

    I order the kids meals a lot. I used to be a little self-conscious about it but not any more. I have never had anybody give me a hard time about it, but it would really upset me if that happened. I know it's hard to ignore that stuff, but just remember that you are making a good decision.

    Good for you.. The kid's meals are just the right portion size to satisfy us and help us on our weight loss journey. emoticon

    I would talk to the manager of this place. Who is she/he to tell you what you want to eat. It is not her decision of what you eat. emoticon

    I do the same thing! What is it with these fast food employees anyways!
