Pay today ... pick it up tomorrow?

I was sitting here catching up on my blog reading and I stumbled onto Hair Girl's to see the photos she had posted. Then I remembered I forgot to share our scary McDonalds experience. You know the kind ... where you leave scratching your very sandy head and thinking WTH just happened.

We were leaving St. Joe's island and stopped into the local McDonalds. They are all the same. Food tastes the same, consistent service, strange people waiting on you ... same story everywhere you go. It's simple, it's McDonalds.

Not so much in Port St. Joe. We pull up, place our special orders and then I decide to try the new milkshake. Something fun to go with my square fish sandwich with its square fake cheese and no tarter sauce. (I know ... exciting!) They were advertising a juicy orange shake. It sounded fabulous. I ordered a small one for us to try.

Here is what happened to me:
Destinie (scary old lady with scarier teeth) : That was one small orange shake.
Me: Yes ma'am that is correct.
Destinie: Our milkshake machine is broken. The manager went to get some parts to make it work.
Me: Excuse me?
Destinie: The machine is broken. You can come back tomorrow to pick it up.
Me: Excuse me?
Destinie: You can get it today and come back tomorrow and pick it up.
Me: No thanks ... you can take it off the order.

First of all ... when did they start doing special orders? The kind where you place your order one day and come back at a later date to pick it up? And did she really think that I would say ok? And further more ... was I gonna really drive 90 minutes the next day to pick up my small milkshake? Whatever ...
