Once again, Troops, I have to endure then "...slings and arrows of
"political correctness" (read: the left and other liberals) to expose
of our all inclusionary system that mandates equal outcome, regardless
Don't worry about me. I can take it, but PLEASE pray for an awakening
of reason, in our system. I am very concerned that, if we don't get it
fixed, your next surgeon (airline pilot, ship captain, air traffic
controller or judge) may be qualified only by "affirmative action".
Un COVER!!! Silent prayer/meditaion.
In Jesus' name I pray, HOOAAHHH!!!
Inspiration Point : Friday, 25 May 2012, Delano, Calif. McDonald's 907 Cecil Ave.
I do, hereby, solomnly affirm that the narrative I relate is the
absolute and unvarnished truth and if I deviate therefrom, may I be
banished from the society of decent people, forever.
It was a pleasant day and we had just come down to the valley floor to
take care of some business for ourselves and a friend.
We had been up for a while and breakfast was a fond memory, so we
decided to stop at Mc D's.
I should have remembered that we had experienced some problems here,
b-4, but the lure of their sweet tea (when done right, an excellent
beverage) overcame my memory banks.
The first indication that this was NOT to be a good experience was the
thick, Asian accent of the counterperson, which required me to ask for
You might ask if my hearing is deficient and would be right to do so.
The first problem with that premise is that it was recently tested &
found to be within acceptable ranges.
The second problem is that I am a licensed radio operator and am
accustomed to "pulling out" phrases, in reasonable ENGLISH from
static, skip and any other interferrence.
Even if my hearing were to be questioned, it doesn't explain the
response of the counterperson to my instructions and although I tend
to speak softly, I tend to increase the volume, when giving specific
instructions that I want followed.
My unit troops could verify this.
1) Requested 2 plastic cups. Got 1 plastic & 1 foam.
2) Requested to taste sweet tea b-4 cup filled, as it is often too
sweet & I go w/ 1/2 & 1/2. No taste afforded. Fortunately tea was
good as served, so no issue, other than lack of response to
3) Counterperson asked if I wanted the Splenda in wife's tea or on
side. I said "You can put it in." Was served on side.
4) (Shift?) Manager had thick Asian accent and called several orders
that all sounded like "Mack". Unless there was a convention of
"Mack"s, I doubt that was what she was saying. I pointed this out to
my wife & she cracked up, in agreement.
5) I spelled my name "Mack" for the counterperson, but the receipt said "Mac".
6) I questioned the (Shift?) Manager about the price of the McDouble
(usually $1, but assessed at $1.19) and had to ask her, also. to
repeat (or in military speak, "Say again."). Her response to the price
check was that McDoubles had gone up. The next day, I bought one from
a different McD's. Still $1. Do different franchises price
differently? It was $1.19 on the Delanoe McD's menu.
7) The receipt listed "2 KETCHUP PACKET," Not on tray.
On the plus side of the ledger, the Lil' Corporal's McChicken had
light mayo, as requested and (as stated) the tea was good.
Now, I've said it b-4 and I've LIVED IT!!!
I have no problem with anyone's race, religion, national origin
(unless you are running for President and NOT a natural-born citizen)
or motorcycle club (unless your club behaves in a manner that is
socially [maybe legally] unacceptable.
But people who come here & expect to work with the public need to
LEARN ENGLISH!!! Not some accented imitation, but (if you want to work
in a red-neck area)
plain old red-neck (American) English!!!
I know it is possible, because I have worked with many immigrants who
have done it.
'Nuff said! Hope everyone is voting. Many people have died to secure
that right. Never take it for granted or abuse it.
On your FEET!!! Un-COVER!!!
Silent prayer/meditation time.
In Jesus' name I pray, HOOAHH!!!
Sgt Mack out, leaving the air & closing station.
