We Love To See You Smile!

I went to McDonalds for lunch today, approximately the third time this week I’ve had McDonalds. I’ve been enjoying the McNuggets recently, and the Frappe’s are outright insanely good. That being said, I had to go up there and get some.

There was a car that was in front of me in the left lane, they jumped over and kept getting stopped by everyone turning right. I was up beside them pulling up on McDonalds, and they wouldn’t slow down to let me pass before getting over behind me… the guy driving kept looking over (directly beside me) and yelling through my [closed] window about trying to get over. I wasn’t in a rush, I pulled back and let them jump in front of me since I was about to turn left into McDonalds.

…so were they.

I made my turn, and pulled up behind them in the drive-thru. They pulled up, as did I. Rolling holding the switch to let my window down, I was greeted with a recording asking if I’d like to try something or another. I said “no thanks” and then the shit got real.

“Hurry up! What can I get for you today!?” Caught off-guard, I let the “hurry up” part slide, but not go unnoticed. “Yeah, I want a 20 piece McNugget,” I said. “Okay, that’ll be $3…” “I’m not done,” I interrupted. Then her attitude really spiked when she responded “What else!?”

I finished my order, and she told me, “Your total comes to $9.18, pull up to the first window!” When I began to pull up, I realized the car ahead of me was already gone, and there was nobody in the drive-thru behind me; surely McDonalds wasn’t extremely busy for her to rush me.

When I pulled up to her window to pay for my meal, she snatched the $10 bill from my hand, slammed the register shut, and tossed my .82¢ at my hand from behind her window. I asked for my receipt, and she told me “I’m going to have to put your information again, and I’d rather not have to do that!”

Once again, nobody was behind me… I pulled up, complained a bit to employees acting as though they’ve heard it about her before, got my food, and went about my way.

So McDonalds, if you’re really about your “We love to see you smile!” campaign, I highly recommend someone resolve this issue…………….

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
