The Effects Of An Official Recession


I went through McDonalds last night to find out the following. They have two double cheeseburgers now. You won't believe the difference!

$0.99 Double Cheeseburger - Bun, 2 Patties, 1 Pieces of Cheese, Pickle, Onion, Ketchup, Mustard, Onions
$1.19 McDouble Cheeseburger - Bun, 2 Patties, 2 Pieces of Cheese, Pickle, Onion, Ketchup, Mustard, Onions

My fucking god. Do they really need two different sandwiches on the menu? Couldn't they have just bumped up the price and called it inflation. Or just removed a piece of cheese and not said anything. Was this drastic piece of action really necessary!? Well that was for Mandar, not me.


So I got a 10 piece chicken nugget. I asked for lots of honey to dip it in. I got one... So then I asked for more and they were like "Uhhhhh, we're gonna have to charge you 10 cents per extra honey." Are you fucking kidding me!? I'm supposed to dip 10 nuggets into one tiny cup of honey! It took me a shit load of bitching to finally get a few more without having to give them my debit card for an extra 30 cent charge. The cups are like, a millimeter deep to begin with!

To top it off, while at the grocery store I grabbed a 20 oz. bottle of Mt. Dew. Later when I opened it I noticed that on top of the cap was written the world "Bad" in black marker. Perfect.

That's kind of funny, actually that they went to such extremes just to avoid increasing the price of the original item, and also make it so that picky customers could still get two pieces of cheese.

And, they had "bad" written on the cap? Maybe it was the good kind of bad...the kind that is applied to things that are awesome, because kids today are so ironic that every single that used to have an exclusively negative definition now is also used to describe things in a positive light, for the sole purpose of pissing me off.

Wait...what was I originally talking about?

It was an annoying night, let me tell you!

I agree with Asylum Seeker when saying that "every single that used to have an exclusively negative definition now is also used to describe things in a positive light, for the sole purpose of pissing me off."
