can sit and coddle your Senior coffee............. ................... WHAT???? Ain't nobody got time for that! Could be getting those jugs in the BREEZE! And I'm "OK" with mc d's coffee. Better than some worse that others. I WON'T go to Starguts!
I've never understood the affinity that many seniors have for McD's (or Hardee's depending on locale)I would think they're the antithesis of anything the older generations would hold dear. They're not comfortableThey're not nostalgicThey're not friendlyThey lack any characterIt seems like McD's is practically chasing everyone over 40 out the door with their kiosk nonsense.
Yeah I'm with ya on starguts. Went there one time, they asked me if I want Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, Mochas, Cappuccino, etc.Told them I want normal coffee black. The look on their face was....
But it’s never been about the coffee...
Yeah, the kiosk business is irritating imo. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if McD's went back to not having a dining area like it was 50+ years ago.
Years ago as working stiffs, we would go to Mcd's for coffee break on the run for a quick cup of joe and would enjoy seeing some of our local retirees there enjoying there daily meet up for coffee time . Some were fathers of friends of mine and others were locals we all knew from a small town growing up. most if not all of them were WWII vets , some Korea and some Vietnam era. I remember them telling us to get back to work and cover there social security. We'd laugh and go back to work with our cheap brown water. I remember thinking, man these guys are here every day like clock work, I don't get it. Slowly over time I no longer saw them at coffee break but instead shared stories about the last time I saw them at a funeral home with their families. Not long after that chapter passed , still a working stiff I started seeing friends a bit older but of my generation at Mcd's starting the same ritual. Another generation of retirees following in the footsteps of the previous . I started looking forward and hoping I would get to join them someday before too many of us were not able to attended. I really wish I hadn't felt so obligated to get back to work and instead had sat with the earlier crew to listen to their conversations, I can only imagine. Once my helper and I were in line ahead of the elderly crew and I paid their tab in advance and the cashier knew exactly what the total would be as it was the same every day they came. That day we sat and drank our coffee with them and shared a few laughs and I noticed when we all got up to leave that most of them had not even finished or touched there coffee . I joked with on of my friends dad about tossing the coffee I had just so graciously paid for and he laughed and said , " son , we don't come here for the coffee , but thanks just the same. Got to hand it to Huzo , nailed it again buddy! It ain't about the coffee.
