"But, How far did you get from them before you realised they actually got your order wrong?"
More importantly, how far did you get from them before you realised that the meat in your so-called beef burger tasted of recycled socks? Honestly, as someone else said, there is NO good reason to go to McDonalds unless heavily armed. Remember the recent adverts for the Monopoly promotion? "You can even win tasty McDonalds food!"...........I wonder why I can't just buy tasty McDonalds food instead and they only give away the tasty stuff as a prize.
Fair cop, Newport Pagnell services have always been rather dreadful on the food/restaurant front, but at least they're only in one place. It's hard to find a city in Europe that doesn't have at least one McDonalds restaurant, and impossible to find one that sells food that tastes of anything good. It's like the choice between having one disfiguring mole or ten thousand slightly smaller, but still disfiguring ones.
Of course my last point of wonder is if AOL, The Sun and McDonalds are so (or so it seems) universally hated, how are they still in business? There must be an awful lot of people who claim to hate McDonalds but still regularly buy food there, likewise people who buy The Sun.
