Has anyone (besides me, that is) gone into a fast food franchise intent on purchasing, not so much the food that comes with the Toy-of-the-Week, but toy itself? See, I do this all the time, and well I don’t want to slander those fine folks who work behind the counter, because — well, somebody has to work there, and (no offense) but I’m so totally glad that it isn’t me.
Anyway, here is what I very often go through whenever I try to purchase a specific toy.
Me: “Could you tell me what toy you have today?”
Fast Food worker: “The Hulk”
Me: “Yea, I know that. Could you please tell me which toy?”
FFW: “I don’t know.”
Me: “Could you please look?”
FFW: “Oh, OK.”
Me (Wishing the cops hadn’t taken all of my guns) “Thanks.”
Yeah, well I can’t tell you how many times I go through this scenario. Anyway. Here is one of this week’s two toys. I’m hoping to snag the sixth and final toy tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
