Excuse Me, McRipoffs?

February 12, 2012

So, earlier today I decided to go to my local McDonalds. All was good until I noticed two things. One: the sign on the ice machine that stated "Re-fills are NOT for drive-thru customers – thanx the mgt" (all typos intentional). The other was the fact that the small sodas (or soft drinks, if you will) are now $1.29. Now, I can understand that prices do have to go up and all that. However, couple the insane mark up that fast food companies make on the drinks, the insane "value meal" prices (I can get better food at a diner for less) and their crazy pricing in general (a slice of cheese from a hamburger to a cheeseburger is 10 or 20 cents, but a slice of cheese from a McDouble to a double cheese burger is 30 to 40 cents. Why is that? I think they have quite some gall doing that. What do you think?

I don’t think I want to go and eat there anymore, thank you very much. Never mind the fact that isn’t good for you.
