Six, Nine or Twelve

A salute to an idiot!

Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets.

I asked for a half dozen nuggets.

'We don't have a half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter.

'You don't?' I replied.

'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply.

'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?'

'That's right.'

So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.

  2. If your order comes to $7.23, do not give them $12.25 expecting to get $5.02 back either. What you get is that *blink* *blink* *blink* deer-in-the-headlights look as they go back and forth from the money in their hand to the total on the register.

    Big hugs, Sandee :]

  8. You want to see something funny? Try checking out somewhere where they have to count change by hand. What a bunch of morons we have "graduating" from schools these days!

  9. They teach by rote to match the tests, you changed the wording - they learned "6, 9, 12" and that's all they know.

  10. And teachers are forced to bump some of these students on up to the next grade level...sad for our future.

    Big hugs, honey...

  11. Don't ask for a half dozen apple pies to go along with that either! You'll really confuse 'em then!

  12. Totally disoriented? Maybe due to lack of sleep.
