McDonald's.. I sue you.

Ah.. McDonald's breakfast – few things on this earth are as horrible as you. Yet.. I occasionally subject myself to the torture of consuming you, and for some unexplainable reason enjoy it.

Your coffee is better than the stuff that comes in a 10 gallon metal can, but still can't compare to that of even some of the worst coffee shops. But even crappy coffee is more enjoyable when it's in my mouth, not on my shirt.

Today I received what I will call a "defective lid." The type of lid that looks normal, and makes you wonder how tired (stupid) you must be to keep spilling coffee.  It took three spills.. one on my shirt and two test spills on my desk to realize that, in this instance at least, I wasn't a complete idiot.

The recessed rim around the top edge had a crack in it right below the "drink here" hole. Such a crack would make it seem like you were just drooling coffee all over yourself, but my incredible powers of deduction proved otherwise.

I'm tired.

Oh, and the coffee wasn't hot anymore.

    At least you're wearing a black shirt today… and no one saw you drool.

    And, yeah. Google is going to take over the world someday… probably sooner than later.

    You entertain me and I love it. When you come see me at my coffee shop I promise to not only give you good coffee – but also a good lid….or a fun cup. 🙂

    I won't have to write a post about suing you! Unless I come up with something really good. 🙂

    Did we come up with a date for that yet? 😉

    And I'm not sure what a "fun cup" is, but I'm sure I'll like it. lyg

    I bet they cut that slit there just for kicks – they can't get in trouble or be bothered by people suing them. Because It's Mcdonalds and Mcdonalds will always exist until the end of time because people like disgustingness. Disgustingness is yummy.

    Speaking of yummy…being that today is my last day at the office I brought in all kinds of yummy…inlcuding ice cream sammichs which are going like crazy. Who knew?

    Date yet to be announced. 😉

    I wish they would figure out if they like me there or not. Last week I was told that I have pretty eyes, and this week they give me a spilly cup.

    I want an ice cream sammich!

    *sniffle* the cruelness of the "to be announced".. is it today? Next week? Now? 🙂 I want it now. 🙂

    Poor guy…not trying to be cruel…would it help if I told you that I think your eyes are pretty as well? How bout today, next week, and now? 🙂 kbye. lyg.

    Nonono… not saying you're being cruel. Me and "TBA".. we go way back, with our first negative encounter being probably about 40 years ago now.

    I like now, and later, and everything in between and after. I'm assuming that you're here now doing your invisible thing.. like a ghost. It's too bad, because you're the one with the ghost catching 😉 skills. l.y.g.

    I'm coming down from my sugar high and can't figure out if I want to consume more and get happy again or let myself crash. huh? huh? what to do what to do….

    I still like it. I looked for a copy, I thought I had one.. couldn't find it.

    Nothing like a good sugar buzz. Fuel that thing. When it comes time to crash, I'll make you some good tea. You just have to come get it. 🙂

    Will do.
