Slater’s 50/50

Just dropped by Slater’s 50/50 in San Marcos last night for my first visit. Had a nice time and enjoyed the food.  I had the chicken sandwich, which although it was good, may seem like an odd choice.  Odd because this is a burger joint and the “50/50” in the title means “made of 50% … Continue reading

Amusing Customer Service at McDonald’s

Yes, I went once… I was feeling a bit peckish. I walk into McDonald’s to get a cheeseburger. Just a cheeseburger. They are small and perfect for a person of the peckish persuasion. I’m the only customer in the whole place. I order. The lady behind the counter gives me my change and says, “you’ll … Continue reading
