Default No Regular Coffee at Mickey D'*!

Yea thats right, thats what I was told this morning at my local McDonald'*.

So im in the drive through ordering a #2 and she ask'* me what would you like to drink with that, naturally I say coffee. She then tells me that all they have is decaf and asks if thats ok? I gave that screen the most puzzeled look of disbelief in the world and then said NO! I asked her how can this be the largest fast food chain on the planet and yet be out of regular coffee at 8:30am. Anyways I canceled the order and drove away. I thought to myself, how can you work at McDonald'* or any of them places and not feel somewhat quilty for telling people "all we have is decaf coffee at 8:30am".

Anyways I thought id share that interesting story with "The Family", I just find it amusing that theres probably a couple hundred more people that went there this morning that are still in disbelief.

I take it you have never worked in a restaurant before? They do run out of stuff. Most only get a truck in 1-2 times a week. If something doesn't come in, you're out of it until the next truck comes in. I work in a restaurant and we run out of stuff all the time too. It'* just the way it goes.

4 SOBE'* a day? Wow. Does that carry the same warning as Monster that says to drink responsibly...limit 2 cans per day?

I've had around 3-4 before and don't remember having an energy problem....lol

Actually I work at a resturant as a lead cook, I know that running out of stuff is common especially during the busy summer but coffee...come on, if you dont have any send someone down the street 2 miles to the next McDonald'* and get some more!

Ummmm.....Sobe'* ok for an energy boost here or there, but you're going to stress out and shut down your adrenal glands eventually if you make 4 cans a day a habit.
