My View from McDonalds


Well-Known Member
I never thought about it before, but I haven't been out to eat inside a place for years and years. If I ever do, I will most certainly be more aware now.
I stopped taking my daughter to McDonalds a year ago. Too expensive for what you get. I can buy 5 pounds of potatoes for what they charge for a small fry, and it is ridiculous to pay $7 for a fish sandwich when all you get is 1 stale bun, a quarter of a piece of dried out cheese, a 1/4 teaspoon of mayo/pickle mix, and a dried out piece of fish. It probably cost them all of 20 cents to make.

Haven't been to a Mc's house of whateverprotien in like 40 years. Not even for fries.

Its either pizza shop, Chik-Fil-A , or Hardee's. And Chik-Fil-A's waits are enough to make me go to Arby's.
We did do Wendy's as a treat when the kids were homeschooling.

5 Guys priced themselves out of my patronage ability, and my son developed a beef allergy - probably from Lymes, so I don't go there.

The best fast food is fried chicken at the grocery store.

As for security, I have 2 people sweep the area while I run in for provisions and return to base vehicle strategically located in lot for best exit if the balloon goes up.

The sweep often turns up a nail, bolt, or object that my tires would never miss.

I'm always aware of my surroundings.
Especially in these last days.
Yes, indeed! I'm trying to teach this to our granddaughter who's early 20's and hasn't seen/heard enough about real life. I'm not paranoid, but certainly 'aware' of any situation where I happen to be. Years ago, my dh filled in for the pastor several weeks during evening service. I would purposely sit at the back so I could try to trip or whatever it took to stop any unwelcome intruder. I found out later that an older gentleman who was retired military was well prepared to handle anyone who unexpectedly stopped by.
A-hem! :spy
Fortunately, no one ever stopped by with intent to interrupt the service or harm my dh. At that time, we attended a small country church and 'anyone' could have done almost 'anything' since the church was 15-20 miles from the nearest town with a
(local sheriff).
