Small, Medium or Large

It had been a while since I bought supper at a fast food drive thru, but I had done it before and thought I knew how to do it.

You just drive up to the menu display, decide what you want, then drive up to the speaker to order.

The menu was very specific at this particular Jack in the box. It even had numbers beside the selections. I decided on a number 8. That is when the trouble began.

“I would like a number 8 meal.”

“Small, medium or large?”

“No, I want a number 8 meal, the one for $4.05”.

“Small, medium or large?”

The lady running the speaker had an oriental accent. Reminded me of that no brain bimbo on MadTV, Ms. Swan. The conversation was degenerating into one of those hillarious Ms. Swan skits but this time it was not funny.

“I want the number 8 meal, the one for $4.05, the one with the jumbo jack with cheese”.

“Ah, Jumbo jack with cheese, that will be $1.65.”

“I guess maybe you did not hear me, I want the number 8 meal, the combo that is on the menu priced at $4.05.”

“Small, medium, or large?”

“Never mind. I will eat somewere else.”

I thought it was a good idea to resurect the clown at jack in the box, but I had no idea they would give him an oriental accent, no brain, and put him in charge of the drive through.

The story does have a happy ending. I ended up having the best sausage sandwich I ever had at the BBQ joint around the corner. It cost less than $4.00 and they did not ask me ‘small, medium, or large’.

Jack in the box is broken and I really don’t care if he ever gets repaired because I am not going back there.

‘Small, medium, or large’, INDEED!
