The world is good again


Okay, before I even start this post, let me confess.......My name is Carol, and I'm a Diet soda -holic. Those of you who know me, this is already common knowledge!! Well every morning rain or shine, I go thru the McDonalds drive-thru (yes, the girls and I there are "friends" now. One girl had a baby another's brother was in an accident and has been in rehab, but better now.......you get the picture. I know these McD workers toooo well.) Anyway...Yesterday I approached the order screen and ordered my 'Usual'. An unfamiliar voice said, "that will be $1.89" WHAT????!!! Okay, just to fill you in, the Glorious HUGO sized soda has been .89 for the summer, then eventually they bumped it up to .99. that was fine. But NOT BACK TO NORMAL PRICE..............NOOOOOOOOO!!! I got a large size instead, I can't pay 1.89 for my soda every am. Well, i told everyone I came in contact with about the tragedy in my life, my sister, mom and dad, the girls at work and of course Mike got an earful. I just told myself, well, I guess I will just have to make due with a small (maybe a medium on the mornings after I work til 4am) from now on. So, today I pulled up to the order screen and ordered my small soda. This time a familiar voice recognized my voice and said"dont you want a Hugo??" I replied, NO! They raised the price. She said, "NO they didnt" What?!!!! At that moment the heavens opened, the sun shone in my sunroof and the world was good again!! Come to find out, yesterdays girl was a fill in who didnt know what was up......the price is still .99 And my "friend" told me to question any worker who tries to sell my hugo to me for full price. AWESOME. Well, i've bored you all enough with this story. I will go for now, besides, my hugo is getting watery!!

Oh Carol, I am laughing so hard at you right now!! I am glad that it was just a misunderstanding and that the price went back for you, anything that can help us get off the day on the right foot is a must.

You're so funny. I'm sure everyone in your house is glad to know that you'll be getting your daily fix.

Funny! Is this your treat after you drop Chase off in the morning? I don't understand why a McDonald's diet drink is better than one poured at home. Do tell!!

Ohhhhhhh, there is SUCH a difference in McDonalds soda. At home, its not a fizzy or cold. It's funny too, at work I've talked to a lot of new moms that have the same addiction and they also go to McD's vs any other place. While in Florida, it was bad!!! The ice there is horrible tasting so so were the sodas.....even at McDS. The FIRST thing I did after landing was stop by McD and get a hugo.....it was sooo good to be home:)

(IN)COURAGE -SO great...check it out!
