Story time. Being honest, I felt this way the first time I went into one of the “all-day-breakfast” converted McDonald’s down here in North Carolina. It was early on after the policy change. I had no coffee that morning, and my “task” given to me by my SO was to get two Egg McMuffins, hash browns and coffee. We were out of coffee at the house, and it was 11AM on a Saturday.
If I’m grumpy without coffee, my SO is akin to a recently woken dragon, just waiting for a village to breathe fire on. So when the poor sap at the counter cheerfully told me, “we don’t have McMuffins on our all-day-breakfast menu because here in North Carolina, the chicken biscuit item is more popular and our management didn’t want to keep staffing all day for just McMuffins.”
I’m paraphrasing. I was literally seeing red and could not process all the extra words he was telling me after, “we don’t have McMuffins on our all-day-breakfast menu.” If I would have had a gun, I would have pulled it. Instead I went to Dunkin’ Donuts and got coffee and went home to take my beating.
Not long after the regional management for McDonald’s were threatened with pitchforks, they added McMuffins to the menu, as it should have been from the start.
