Mar 13th 2010 1:43PM Inside secret info, i don't know where I got it from. But I know from a reliable source that at least some stores would be able to do this. Locally, our Mickey D's start 'lunch' at 10:30 M-S, Sunday @ 11. So if he'd come through the drive through at 10:35 during the week he could have ordered exactly what he wanted. Apparently they keep the breakfast menu items for 15 minutes past the time to eliminate food costs. (They're still good for that long.) Not that I think it sounds appetizing, but it could be done.

Oct 28th 2008 11:13PM Kim, while I'm deeply sorry for your experience with Keybank I think it's time to invest in a new bank if possible. I commonly go negative and while it is my fault and I do know about it in advance I'm very grateful that to date (knock on wood) the bank has simply charged me fees and even once in a great while waived them for me. If you had only done this twice in 4 years, I'm positive they would have waived them for you. My parents bank at the same bank we do and have had no trouble at all. They have overdraft protection also, which I can't afford. I bank at Bank of the West, and while a lot of people don't like them, I've had great luck with them up to this point. Best of luck!
Oct 23rd 2008 11:03AM This is ridiculous. My husband works for McDonald's and while some days I prefer BK, I love Mickey D's chicken sandwiches. Stop complaining about the onions and simply order your sandwich of choice with no onions. It's that simple. Just like BK you too can have it your way and McDonald's. At least with the sandwiches you can. I absolutely love their fries. They've taken away the trans-fat and not salvaged the taste unlike other chains. BK's fries were so delicious when I was a kid, now they're nasty. My only complaint about McDonald's is their pathetic excuse for pickles. I have to order extra extra just to get enough. Other than that, it's cheap good food. Want healthy? Order a salad instead of fries. Just an ordinary side salad. Or have just a salad and fruit and walnut side item, they also have yogurt parfaits, have water instead of pop.
Oct 1st 2008 1:25PM This is why I work for Marriott. I can assure you if that happened at a Marriott they'd have lost their branding. It happens regularly. That's just terrible. Marriott believes that if you treat your employees right, they'll treat your customers right and make them want to come back. Keep that in mind when you're booking your next hotel room.
Sep 30th 2008 9:16AM Refusing to serve a child is rude and inconsiderate. Having been a child it used to really bother me if people wouldn't notice me because I was too small or inconsequential to them but their money works just as well as mom and dad's or their sisters. That poor child, I've been a cashier and would never deny any American money given to me, and change is always useful.
Sep 5th 2007 9:18AM I can't believe that some people can be so insensitive to take offense to the comments by asthmatics and find them in the wrong. I suffer from migraine headaches quite often. These are often made 10 times worse by those wearing perfume. I shouldn't have to spend my days in bed simply because too many people are trying to mask something other than being clean. I had a teacher in high-school that was allergic to perfume or strong scents, she'd kick the students out of class. I say more power to her.
Aug 1st 2007 3:13AM To the person who was talking about e-coli from Mickey D's, I'd like to point out that one's risk of getting e-coli is no worse from McDonald's than it is at Burger King or Wendy's. My husband works at McDonald's and none of the stores owned by the person who owns 7 stores in town have gotten e-coli poisoning. Obviously someone wasn't doing their job correctly. I agree 42 oz. is a bit overboard, but I always get a medium and never refill it anyway. Why waste it if I'm not going to drink it. Although one of those would cost less than 3 drinks for me and my 2 children, so we could just split it once we got home.
May 21st 2007 7:00PM The only part of this practice I find sick is that it's done in public streets, transportation etc. I flipped through a book in an American library written by an American woman who was discussing potty training from infancy. Like 1 month and younger. To me it seemed to involve a similar approach, but mostly it was training the parent to learn the necessary cues even babies use to show they have to pee or poop. If only I'd figured that out before fighting with years of diapers and wet/dirty underwear. The cost of that alone, would be worth coming up with something new and inventive.
May 15th 2007 9:24AM I think I'd have to say that Chuck just read book 6 and seems to think it was 7. Simply because I work at a library and I know very well that book 7 is not released until July 21st in the US and probably shortly before that in Europe. Which isn't soon enough in my opinion. A wonderful series of books, but it's definitely time to move on to something else.
