This morning I decided to treat myself for breakfast and go to McDonalds before coming in to work.  I wouldn't normally do this but until I go grocery shopping beef jerky and frozen pizza isn't the most fulfilling breakfast. I was under the assumption that it would be a quick trip through the drive through, pick up an egg mcmuffin and coffee, and be on my way in lickety split.  That assumption was wrong.

Firstly the drive-thru line was a dozen cars deep, but that just seems like the new norm around Midland that I just need to get used too.  The blog worthy event happened when the guy in front of me ordered 50 SAUSAGE BURRITOS. 50 BURRITOS! At McDonalds! In the Drive-Thru!

Who does that? Why wouldn't you just go inside? Can you call ahead and order at McDonalds? Does McDonalds do catering now? How badly does the cook hate the drive-thru guy? Is society crumbling?

All these questions and more were racing through my head as I felt my morning slip away from me, but thank heaven for small mercys. They had the burrito king pull up and wait instead of taking up valuable drive-thru space.  But I could hear the people scrambling in the background as I pulled up to order.  This is where instead of ordering the classic mcmuffin I decided to indulge in a little first world anarchy: "Yes I would like one sausage burrito please"

And several minutes later when I finally had my single burrito and burrito king was still waiting I held my burrito up in salute as I drove past.  He may have ruined my morning... but that burrito sure was tasty.

The Burrito King could not enjoy the tastiness of your only burrito by the time he's chowing down on his 31st burrito!
