Things seen and heard at Burger Kingô

I had lunch today at Burger King, as I often do. * The food was, as usual, adequate to my needs.** What was almost unbearable, (and I know no fault of the crew at the restaurant) was the VERY LOUD lady in line in front of me.

Itís one thing to think through your order, but come on, we donít need to hear why you donít like ketchup on your cheeseburger.*** And then, she raised her voice so grandpa, who was getting the drinks at the dispenser almost 10 whole feet away, would know why she didnít like ice in her Coke.

Then, I (this was actually directed to me, although everyone in the restaurant could also hear) was treated to why she thinks that Sponge Bob Squarepants is a stupid cartoon. And how ugly it was and that it wasnít as good as Scooby Do or any of the cartoons from when she was a child.****

Eventually, my food arrived, so I was able to find a seat (thankfully across the restaurant from this woman and her family). I was still able to follow her conversation whenever I wanted to. But mostly, I was able to loose myself in the book I had brought along.

On a more positive note, I did notice something extremely funny on the way out of the restaurant. On the door where you would normally see a ďPUSHĒ sign, was this:

PUSH Or you can have it your way and PULL. But the door is very stubborn about things like that.


* I really like their Original Chicken Sandwiches, in fact, I practically lived on them in college.

** ie. deep fried.

*** Although I do have to say that I was amused when she ordered a cheeseburger with no condoms on it for her little daughter. And I didnít mis-hear her, thatís what she said.

**** With most Nicktoon cartoons, I would have to agree with her. But in my opinion, Sponge Bob is one of the few cartoons that is reasonably well drawn. Besides, my Other Blogless Brother, who is a Marine Biologist got me slightly hooked on it, (He gets tickled by the thought of a kitchen sponge living at the bottom of the ocean.)
