Nope...a tow truck met me at work, and I had to ride with them to get the the car repair place. Then, I curled up in the back seat of my broke car until they opened...
Thank you for your responses!
Yes, I am Vegan (in training...still making mistakes)
Here's how it went:
I was tired, cranky, and starving and ordered the plain McMuffin w/ Jelly, an apple pie, and an orange juice.
They gave me TWO apple pies, and I said I only wanted one. I was told that it's two for a dollar, and that even if I just got one, it would still be a dollar. Remember, they used to be .79 cents each OR two for a dollar. See how our portions and meal sizes are manipulated?!?!!?!?!?!
And yes, I ate both the pies.
My McMuffin was great with teh jelly...but I think they had 'butter' sauce on the cut/fried sides of it! I'm not sure. I doubt it was vegetable oil. If in this situation again (I HOPE NOT) I'd tell them that I'm allergic to milk and butter products, and the derivatives, and could I please have a McMuffin made without it.
The orange juice was fine...though, I once new a woman that worked for the company that produces the 'anti-bittering-agent' used in that brand of orange juice. I met her when we were in HAZMAT shipping class together. Her company just landed a big contract with that orange juice company, and she needed to be certified to ship HAZARDOUS materials, so she could ship the chemical to the orange juice factories....yum!
All in all, it was okay.
The meal left me sick to my stomach, but I had a nice sugar rush going so I could be nice to the mechanics (and not strangle anyone). The meal was so filling, and fattening, that I didn't have any lunch.
Under my placemat, there was a nutritional chart. Now, I've read these before, but I didn't have it memorized...so I looked up the items I was eating and drinking... WOW!!! I consumed between 1200-1500 calories in a single sitting!!! With NO nutritional value (except the orange juice), no fiber, valuable nutrients, etc... and mostly sat. fat and corn syrup!!!!
Once upon a time...I thought this was healthy eating....sad...
