What's with the one napkin?!

Friday, April 10, 2009 by Brysgirl | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Why is it that every time I go thru a drive thru, regardless of what I order, they always give me just one napkin? I could order 2 happy meals and 2 value meals and they will put 1 napkin in the bag! Are they kidding me?  The thing is that every one does this especially McDonalds, Wendys and Dunkin Donuts. We go to Dunkin Donuts almost every Sunday morning on the way to church. This week my hubby got smart; he said,  "4 bagels w/ cream cheese, a coffee, and 2 orange juices, oh, and some extra napkins please." We received our order- 4 bagels with cream cheese, a coffee, 2 orange juices, and , you guessed it, 2 napkins!!!

Is there a shortage of trees in the USA? Is this stupidness only happening in the Midwest?

Weird. In my location people sometimes add too many in bags! One time we had about over 10 of em.

We always kept plastic bags and a roll of "Brawny" (el cheapo variety) in the car for the two little vacuum cleaners. Worked great. Then we "upscaled" to wet wipes.

While we're on the subject, can we get the guy that invented the fastfood Ketchup packet in here too?

I'd politely ask him what the hell was he thinking about, then kick the living shit out of him before he could answer!

  

 

Ask your wife if you can borrow your testicles for just a minute and then ask for more napkins before leaving the window... That's what I do. Then I hand them back and we are on our way...

Hello,

 

  I work at a McDonald's in Northeast Ohio......and are rules are.......1 napkin for each food item.  Sooooo.....if you order a burger, fries and a drink.....you will receive 3 napkins.  You can request extra napkins and we will be happy to give them to you.  In this day and age everyone is cutting cost.

Would you PLEASE tell someone at Dunkin' Donuts about this policy!? I get like 5 or 6 food items and get I stinkin' napkin!

And of course, the day I get only one napkin is the day I drop my bagel, getting cream cheese on my tie, and then I hit a bump in the road and spill my coffee.

And who needs a cat to tear things up when you've got kids?

Just found myself wondering why Redneck Dude hasn't popped in here yet. Then it hit me--

Redneck's don't use napkins!

Bojangles is the same way. What kills me is I order a breakfast sandwich and a coffee at the same place every morning via the drive thru. When asked if I want cream and sugar I tell them "1 cream only, no sugar and I'll put the cream in myself". When they hand me my bag I have 5 sugars, 5 creams and 1 napkin. I asked why they only give 1 napkin and was told it was a cost cutting rule. So I hand then back the extra creams and sugars and ask to trade for napkins instead. You would think that they wold eventually get used to me but no, we go through this every morning.

My pet peeve is why does McDonald's and Duncan Donuts insist on putting the cream in the coffee for you. Do they think the publics not smart enough to get the lid off the cup? Drives me crazy. Most of the time you end up with a cup of cream with a dab of coffee. I hand it back and tell them to let me put it in myself, like I ordered in the first place.

The whole time I have to be polite and smile, unless I want them to spit in my coffee.

I wish I could complain about not being given enough napkins.  Fact of the matter is, with the economy the its going and new trends in the Medical Transcription industry ("keeping competitive" means they replace my skills with a voice recognition engine, and then pay me half of my wages to correct what the engine screws up), I don't have the discretionary funds to purchase food outside of the home -- we've been doing pinto beans for a while now, and I don't have disposable napkins, so we just use dish towels that I have to wash afterwards.

I suppose I should preface these Dickensonian posts I make with "Back in MY day..." so I can sound like my grandparents talking about the great depression.
