Big Mac Attack

Here's the scene. In my hand I hold a coupon. I know, I know, a man with a coupon...already this story doesn't sound plausible. Just for the record the wife and kids were with me too. Wife = coupon book. So, really, I have a coupon. It says FREE Big Mac with the purchase of an Extra Value Meal.

I hand the coupon to the cashier and tell her I'd like a #1 (Big Mac Extra Value Meal).

Cashier (reads the coupon): You have to order an extra value meal.

Me (didn't I just?): Yes, a #1.

Cashier: And you want another Big Mac?

Me (isn't that what the coupon says?): Um, yeah.

Is it just me or does McDonald's need to stop making their coupons so complicated?

hiring "special" employees is cool and all, but you gotta spell everything out for them. when you order with a coupon you HAVE to say, for example, "i have a coupon for a free Big Mac with purchase of a Big Mac value meal and that's what I want." if you just hand them the coupon they'll just look at it like a monkey doing a math problem. ;)
