This will be short. I am writing this from McDonalds.
I stopped by McDonalds to grab a bite to eat while Cindy is at a Women's board meeting at church. I stopped here for one primary reason: Access to their fast WiFi so I could get some work done while waiting. My secondary reason was to grab a bite. BIG MISTAKE!
My first disappointment was when I tried to log into their WiFi and found out that IT IS NOT FREE WI-FI!!!! What's up with that? That totally stinks!
My second disappointment came with my first bite into the Angus Third Pounder. I could go on and on, describing what I REALLY think about it, but suffice it to say that I will never order one again. It is completely AWFUL. A total waste of money. Who can eat this stuff? It is just awful, that is all there is to it.
The only good things about this visit to the McDonalds at Main and Hovey in Normal were:
- The restaurant was very clean,
- The service was fast and friendly
- There were plenty of empty tables at 11:45 in the afternoon. (I suppose I should have taken the plenty of empty tables at lunch time as my first clue as to what to expect from my food experience.)
- LAST BUT NOT LEAST (and this actually ended up redeeming the experience for me) - I met Bill, a distinguished gentleman who works there as their customer service person in the front of the restaurant (the folks who clean up after the patrons). He is a delightful man, a retired pastor, and a Godly person with whom I had a deep and meaningful conversation regarding the Lord, Prayer, the state of America and numerous other subjects. I would go back to this McDonalds just to have another conversation with this man.
By the way, I did NOT pay for my internet connection there at McDonalds so that I could write this. I used my Verizon Wireless card, although it is a much slower connection. At least I did not have to pay for their WiFi.
All the best,
