It's been so hot. The kind of heat that on Friday slowly sucked away my will to live. I forget that Fresno stays super hot in the afternoon, unlike Orange County--where the afternoon brings relief. Heat like this (107) makes it difficult to even want to get ready. I either want to be indoors or in the pool. When one loses one's will to live, hairstyles other than ponies/buns fall by the wayside and makeup will simply be perspired off.
So, I decided to write about something that has been irking me for some weeks. Anyone who knows me well knows my great love for Chick Fil-A. I remember four years ago, when the first in the OC opened up and my life changed. All my friends probably have memories of me from either the Fil-A or In'n'Out. With my health issues, I can't indulge like I used to...but at least they have wheat buns and a chargrilled sandwich!
Well, McDonald's appears to be trying to rip off the Fil-A. It's infuriating. I saw a commercial a couple of months ago for the Southern Style Chicken sandwich--a fried chicken breast on a simple buttered bun, garnished with nothing but pickles. Sound familiar?! And now, sweet tea. What?!! Next thing you know, they will have waffle fries too.
Well, McDonald's may steal the whole menu, but their customer service will never touch the Fil-A's "my pleasure" and "I'd be happy to help you" of their employees.
I'm still bothered though. Hot and bothered.
