The Cheese Event

This one warrants a complaint- I ordered two sausage egg biscuits at McDonalds- just like it says on the marquee- 2.19 each- then they charged too much --5.47-- and I asked about this-- window person asked if I wanted cheese, I responded "I didn't order cheese- no cheese".And then she corrected the order and charged the correct amount. When I got to the pickup window I asked "are you sure that this does NOT have cheese - I cannot eat cheese. I was told, "no cheese" So I pull off and check and sure enough, cheese on both sandwiches... So I park and get out in the pouring rain, go in and explain the situation- I do not want cheese... After apologies, I was mindlessly asked if I wanted cheese. I responde "No I do not want cheese- is this hard to understand?" Then I hear the front line manager asking the line to fill the order promptly. Then the lady who picked this up asked if I ordered cheese. At this point I yell, no cheese! I do not want cheese! I cannot eat cheese!. Then I asked the line manager what the problem was and informed her I would contact the corporate office to find out. This would all be funny if it wasn't so exasperating. am I to assume that no one at this location understands the concept of "No CHEESE?" --and by the way why did they add cheese in the first place when it is not featured on the menu marquis? I will never eat at this location-which is on the way to work for me- again. I have had mis-filled orders here three of the last four times I have eaten there.

Rattling around in my brain...

Do you ever have an earworm visitation?

this one has been in my head today...from my childhood

Kingston Trio The Merry Minuet lyrics-you can hear it here

Sheldon Harnick

They're rioting in Africa. They're starving in Spain.
There's hurricanes in Florida and Texas needs rain.
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans. The Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs. South Africans hate the Dutch
and I don't like anybody very much!
But we can be tranquil and thankful and proud
for man's been endowed with a mushroom shaped cloud.
And we know for certain that some lovely day
someone will set the spark off and we will all be blown away.
They're rioting in Africa. There's strife in Iran.
What nature doesn't do to us will be done by our fellow man.
