Cute piece. I don’t find it to be an issue. To the contrary. I/we get McNuggets at the drive thru occasionally. We get at least four spicy mustards. To the point that if we’re going to eat it at home we ask them not to give us any. From an environment standpoint I wish they all had the pump thingy for eating in. And it would cost them less. But it was a cute article and thanks for sharing.
You have to a handful of Taco Bell sauce since there is so little in those dang packets…
When I have to use my teeth to open those SOB’s, I always say a little prayer that all the employee’s dirty paws that have saturated every inch of my condiment packet, that their sore has healed and I’m not gonna get some freaky deaky swamp ass virus…
This condiment tyranny needs to stop!
We need Presidential intervention. “Mus-lums”, Nordstrom’s dropping Ivanka’s line of very terrific stuff (made in “Jy-na”), and speaking of (Va-)Jy-na…, repeal Obamacare with something great - don’t worry!, Obama wiretapping (so unclassy), Russia - great by the way (Ryan>>Prez’s lapdog>>Putin’s bitch/jealous how Putin gets to “pacify” loser opposition) - these all - very important by the way - can wait.
“Condiments are amazing and tremendous. We can fix Roe v. Wade AND lovers will have fresh breath too. I will order Congress to push it through now. A woman’s right to choose - so overrated. Birth control AND lovely breath for all of those losers. I can brand this new product, “Trump Condom-Mints” - very classy - my fantastic idea.”

“The President did NOT confuse the term, condiments, with his new product, Condom-Mints. It WILL BE a GREAT IDEA, the President is always right, and I look forward to being the first in line to purchase a case of these great refreshing birth control devices.”

I don’t do the Taco Bell, but have found that asking for “a bunch” of hot sauce at Del Taco isn’t enough. I specify “13 Inferno packets, please” because that’s how much I need, and because that specific number lets them know that I’ve thought about my hot sauce needs. Over-thinking? Maybe, but it works for me.
You just totally cracked me up.
Hot sauce is serious business. See my post in the Condiments thread.
How many tacos need 13 packets please?
Epic Bacon Ranch Chicken Avocado Burrito. 13 just about does it.
Just googled that. It looks like what we call an EDB (elephant dick burrito)!
How about having to ask for ketchup now at mcdonalds and wendy’s!
I love you.
We are living through the most unintended and undevised comedic presidency that I recall. Might as well laugh while the rest of the.world sees what’s under our skivvies.
These big.chains hiding the condiments from their paying customers. I know their margins are thin - people walking off with a couple hundred extra packets a week, a day, most of which probably are thrown away - I’m sure it adds up.
Where would this industry be without cheap labor? Where would consumers be without cheap labor? Maybe cheap labor places too heavy of a cost on society (and our consciences). Some cities are trying to resolve the cheap labor issue. Businesses are saddled with what to do next. I’m sure mein fuhrer will have the solution - it will be amazing.
Next , they will take away the napkins and you only will be given one .
“BYO napkins” is standard in parts of Asia - particularly hawker stalls and food courts.
I’ve also been in the odd place here that has no napkins on the counter or tables. They have to be requested and are parsimoniously handed out. Can’t think of where right at this moment - but places like that which manifest such desperate times leave me “one and done.”
Donuts & Chinese Food generally means one thin, paper napkin. But it’s not parsimony. It’s saving waste. There were famines, you know.
Carrying diaper wipes in the car is so handy. Not just for wiping baby bottoms, they’re great for keeping things clean in general. When that next famine hits LA, I’ll be ready for those oily sticky donuts and dangerous gloppy takeout forays.
I think they must be cutting back on napkins with take out/drive thru. I’m down to almost none where I used to have a couple of dozen. I use them for covering smaller containers for MWing.
Great deals at the .99 cent store on the brand name baby wipes…or towelettes, individually wrapped like you used to get at the casinos!
