McDonald's Delivery

This weekend, we didn't go out for any meals. As PaPa isn't feeling very well (coughing now), the Korean food would have to wait another week. Yesterday, he was supposed to go out to pack dinner for us (he's going to eat the leftover meatball porridge from lunch) but he fell asleep on the sofa. So I ordered McDonald's delivery.

I included a Happy Meal, just to get the FuWa mascot. It's the Olympics season, how can we not have at least one mascot at home? hehehe It came with Yingying (Asia). And I didn't realise before this that it has a stamp (in the shape of the continent). So XY was very happy with her new toy and started stamping away after she finished her meal.

McD's delivery is not as effective as Pizza Hut's. They took 50 minutes to deliver my meal and the expected time is 45 mins, where as Pizza Hut's just 30 mins. Imagine you've to wait almost an hour for your food. And McD's delivery charge is more expensive too. But it's still worth paying when you think about the petrol spent to purposely drive out to the fastfood outlet.

Agree with you, Mcd always take longer time to deliver their food.I always try to avoid to call during peak hour.

Yatie said...

I told them " I know our conversation is recorded, so pls make the delivery fast and I want FOC. after Mc D, treat me well everytime delivery, I received something extra.......... we shouldn't call them fast food though

sue said...

Bad thing is McD don't deliver when it's raining, that's when people are most lazy to go out mahhh....

Waiyo, must go and get not all but at least one of the mascots for keeps. I'm sure not only kids would like to have the mascots, adults too.
