Welcome to Six Word Saturday…the little meme hosted by Cate, that only requires six little words! Come on, join in the fun, by adding your own six words.
My six words for today are: McDonald’s charges an “eat in” tax???
A while back, my daughter mentioned to me that McDonald’s charged her a “take out” tax on food ordered at the window. I didn’t think any more about it…until one Friday evening when my husband and I ate at McDonald’s for supper–something we rarely do. After we got our food, and were seated, my husband looked at our receipt. We had been charged an “eat in” tax! I couldn’t believe it–we had been charged a fee just to sit in their establishment??!
Today, my daughter and I ate lunch at a different McDonald’s. I ordered a chicken sandwich and a small coke–and I was charged an “eat in” tax of thirty-three cents! Again, McDonald’s charged me to sit at their table and eat my sandwich??!
We can’t win at McDonalds. If we order our food to go, they charge us a “take out” tax. If we eat it there, they charge an “eat in” tax!
