McDonald’s: The home of triple-burger abominations (and heart attacks), the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry (and heart attacks), and really good stories about what happens when you want a milkshake at 1 a.m. (and heart attacks).
Earlier this morning, Josh Raby traveled to the McD’s near his house when, in his words, “I’m greeted at the drive thru by the following sentence: ‘Hey holy sh*t hello, you are at McDonald’s, and I am begging your patience.'” Most people would rethink that milkshake and go home, or drive the extra 5 minutes to the Dairy Queen down the road, but not Raby. He needed to see where this was going, and lucky for us, he tweeted the entire encounter. Like all good stories, chicken sandwiches and confusing marriages are involved.
The “holy sh*t hello” catches Raby off guard.
But he eventually spits out his order.
Then, crushed dreams.
McDonald’s apple pies are garbage compared to their milkshakes, but Raby has other concerns. Like, what the hell is going on? Also, chicken sandwiches.
One man’s chicken sandwich is another’s broken marriage.
The McDonald’s employee then tries to sell an apple pie to Raby, who hears “a weird series of beeps.” This is when things get truly weird.
This is my favorite tweet of all time.
Eventually, the wife gets involved, too.
Raby saved a marriage, or something.
Here comes the kicker.
Raby’s final tweet: “My chicken sandwich was wrong, by the way.”
Been there, man. You can read the whole saga on Storify.
