I always find it funny when Management leaves a note. Who else would it be from? And come to think of it, why are they saying Thank You?
Just as intriguing to me is the sign just above... what in the world Is: $5.03?I know it's off topic, but I wonder.
McDonalds is never sorry about anything. To me the quotes not only confirm that they are not sorry, but I have to wonder that this is their way of saying:'We are not sorry, we want you to know that we are not sorry, we are using the word sorry just out of social convention.'
I love this blog! Unnessary quotation marks is a source of grammar-related irritation for me. Another one is improper use of apostrophe. Is there a blog for that? I must go look.Keep up the good work!
Nina...two links listed on the right side of this blog - apostrophe abuse and apostrophism. Both great !
Re: the brackets. I'll bet management has a stock form that says: '"SORRY" OUT OF [insert item here]', and they left the brackets in. Oops.Thank you is short for "Thank you for understanding". That's common.
Michele, $5.03 is the grand total price of whatever Jason ordered. The sign he photographed is beneath the electronic screen you see in drivethroughs.
Ah, I see it now. I thought it was a sticker lettering on glass, and I was also curious about the $5.03 thing.Is the closing bracket a curly bracket, or are my eyeballs wrong again?[ GAME PIECES }
I like that there's a period after "Management", as if that were an entirely self-contained sentence.Management. Take it as you will.
I like the idea that McDonald's, which usually does Monopoly game pieces, decided to try something different and had the game Sorry instead. You collect cards affixed to your Big Mac that tell you how many spaces you can go, and if you get a card that says "Sorry" on it, you win something.
