We Need A Manager On Register Three Please!

On days when Ed and I are trying to eat better, we often do McDonald's because I like their new Southwest Chicken Salad, because really, what other reason would there be for going to McDonald's when you're trying to diet?

Yesterday, Ed got our lunch and brought it back out to the truck. We started eating when I commented on something I noticed he'd been doing lately; getting a salad instead of fries.

"Oh, you got a salad."

"Yeah," he said. "and everytime I ask for a side salad instead of fries, the cashier is like 'a salad? You mean instead of fries??' and then they have to call over a manager to see if it's okay."

Is that what they teach their staff at Hamburger University; to consult with a manager before making those big decisions?
