We then marched a few blocks over to the Burger King. Now, I was (obviously) already agitated at the point, and since I think BK's food sucks, I was not happy about being there. However, I go up to place our order for their Kids Meals ... and I was reading RIGHT OFF THE DAMN MENU BOARD to do so, and I get the same BULLSHIT from them ... not only was it "grill the customer time" for how many fucking chicken pieces I wanted, the bitch had already PUNCHED IN the higher priced meals. Come on ... I'm in there with a 5 year old and a 9 year old ... I'm NOT looking for the "teen meals"! So, "bad Brendan" comes out again and I'm screaming about how everybody should be tested for IQ and those too fucking stupid to fill a simple fast food order should be taken out and SHOT, if nothing else to get them out of the gene pool!
But, was the fun over yet? NO! Our next option was to go to 7-11 and get The Girls hot dogs, so we troop over there and the Al-Queda look-alikes who run the place have not figured that maybe the hot dogs should go on the rollers a little earlier on a Saturday, and there was nothing to be had yet. Now, I was able to avoid screaming AT them (although there was much vile Tourettes-like mumbling happening) since they weren't fucking with me (unlike the lobotomies at BK and McD's), just inconveniencing me, but we stormed out of there still unfed.
We eventually settled on the little Chinese take-out place where The Girls could get pot stickers ... of course, here too I found reason to get pissed off (although this time at myself), as after we'd ordered I noticed a print-out posted on the wall saying they had Chicken Strips & fries for 1/2 what I ended up spending on the dumplings. Grrrrrrrrr!
Some days I think there needs to be some serious culling of the damn herd.
