McGriddle Chocolate Stinkfest from Hell

What a day so far. It started out by taking my oldest daughter to the chiropractor, which was fine until we walked back to the adjustment room and HOLY SHIT….Literally!  Someone was seriously rotten on the inside, the second we turned the corner to enter the room it was like smacking into a wall of shit.  The bathroom is right across from both exam rooms, biiiiggg mistake. Unless your shit smells like roses (my sister’s will appreciate that) you should always put the bathroom as far away as possible.  I’m just thankful that we weren’t there but a few minutes, shew.

Do we think anyone would have noticed my new accessory?

After the stinkfest at the chiropractor we headed to Walmart to pick up a few things. The daughter was hungry so we thought we would just hit McDonald’s inside Walmart and eat real quick, then go shopping. The daughter ordered her usual egg & cheese McGriddle, oh lord, here comes the mass confusion as always.  Cashier- “You want egg and cheese McMuffin?”  Daughter- “No, egg and cheese McGriddle, no meat on it.”  Cashier- “Sausage, egg and cheese McGriddle” Daughter looks at me and says, “Would you just take care of this?” Me in my condescending, full of irritation tone, pronouncing every word clearly since he didn’t seem to speak the same language as ANY American. I was waiting for someone to ask me to press 1 for English.

“No, no, EGG AND CHEESE McGRIDDLE, NO SAUSAGE OR BACON. SHE DOES NOT EAT MEAT!” Cashier- “So, sausage, egg and cheese McGriddle…(At this point I’m about to jump over the counter and make the damn thing myself) no meat?.”  DING, DING, DING, WE HAVE A WINNER!

Finally, he get’s it right and hands us our cups for tea and the receipt with our number on it. We got our drinks and sat down and waited and waited and waited and waited, need I go on?  About 5 or 6 other people order and get their food and we are still waiting, 10 minutes later, mind you, I went up to the counter and about that time one of the managers walked over to a table and told the lady that she had given her the wrong sandwich, that it had no sausage on it. If you know me at all, you probably can see my eyes rolling and hear me huffing and puffing. I was thinking, she better not EVEN put that sandwich on a tray to give us, lucky for her she didn’t. She told the guy that she needed another McGriddle with no sausage as she was throwing away the pawed over, germ infested screw up.  I gave them a few more minutes, still, no food.

I finally just asked for a refund, after all, we had been waiting for damn near 15 minutes. Oh no, god forbid I ask for a refund. Getting a refund took another 5 minutes because you know, it is so difficult to push the buttons on the register. Then the manger says something to the other cashier about the fact that we already had our drinks.  The “Ghetto Cheri” in my head was screaming, waving my finger and moving my head back and forth…”Awww hell no, don’t you even think about charging me for these damn drinks after you left my ass waiting for so long!”  Not even trying to be sincere or sorry for making us wait so long, the manager FINALLY completed my FULL refund and I walked out. GRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

One of the reasons I wanted to go to Walmart was to redeem some coupons for a free bag of Lindt Lindor Truffles, ok, 5 free bags. I had also done this a week or two ago and got 4 bags for free with my 4 coupons without any problem. There shouldn’t be any problems considering they were perfectly legit.


The daughter and I chose our flavors very carefully, ensuring we would get complete and full enjoyment out of each and every bag.  Oh wait, they’re small Christmas gifts, maybe for teachers, the mail lady, not for us at all, really.

Not only did I have coupons for Lindor, but I received a coupon in the mail for a free bag of Ghardelli chocolates that I won in a giveaway on Facebook as well


We made our way to the checkout, the daughter put her two bags on the counter and handed the cashier her two coupons. She tried to scan them a few different times and stared at them very closely and informs me that she can’t accept them because they are not allowed to take internet coupons that won’t scan. So really you are just too damn lazy to punch the numbers in, ok, fine, don’t worry about it then. Moving on, she rang up our other items with me handing her the coupon for the free bag of Ghardelli that I received in the mail. It went right thru but she held it up to the lights and asked me why it had voids printed all over it. Me-“I have no idea, I didn’t realize that it did. I got it in the mail the other day.” Cashier-“Why would you get it in the mail? It looks like a computer printed coupon.” Me- “ I assume because I won it in a giveaway and they sent it to me.” Cashier-“It just looks like you printed it from the internet.” ,

“Well I guess I should have saved the letter that came with it to show to you. Just forget it, I’m not going to stand here fighting with you over it.” She finally finished ringing me up, along with my free Ghardelli and hands me the receipt saying in a very shitty tone, “Here you go.” What the fuck? Like your stupidity is my fault!


With all the bullshit of waiting and waiting all morning, I didn’t get back to the apartment in time for the mail lady to deliver a package. The point of wanting to eat quickly and grabbing just a few things was to specifically be back home to receive that package. Oy vey!

Then for the finale of the morning, the icing on the cake, the straw that broke the camels back…

I opened a doctor bill for the daughters foot. The visit that took four hours, they wouldn’t treat her without giving her a physical, and again we waited and waited only to see the doctor for literally 2 minutes and he didn’t do a damn thing. The amount for us sitting there for four hours you ask…


Well How fitting for the day.
