View Full Version : I want the ORIGINAL flavor!

I'm waiting for my order inside McD's. I overhear the following bizarre conversation between some middle-aged guy and the order taker:

SC: I want a medium #4 meal, a medium #5, both with Cokes, and large milkshake.

Worker: What flavor milkshake?

SC: Whatever the original is.

Worker: I'm sorry? I don't know what you mean. We have chocolate, vanilla, stra--

SC: I just want what the original flavor was.

Worker: We've always had more than one flavor.

SC: No, you haven't.

Worker: [ to a co-worker, possibly supervisor ] Excuse me? This gentleman is asking for a milkshake...

SC: [ over ] You don't know your own products! This is insanity!

Worker: [ ignoring SC ] ...in the 'original' flavor. Do you know if we had an original flavor?

[ other worker walks to counter authoritatively ]

Other Worker: Sir, did you want a chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or--

SC: Listen, my wife texted me what she wanted. She asked for a milkshake without saying what flavor it is. I assume that means she wants whatever the original flavor is.

Other Worker: Sir, we don't have an original flavor. For as long as I've been here we've at least had chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry at the very least as milkshake flavors. I suggest you just text your wife asking which flavor she wants.

SC: Are you sure?

Other Worker: I'm positive. We haven't ever had only one flavor milkshake.

At this point my order had come up, and it seemed things were wrapping up between the customer and the worker. Thankfully there wasn't a line at that point that he was holding up, but geez. This guy didn't understand the basic concept of milkshake ordering.

Where does he think he is? Wendy's?

And I don't care what they say. There is only Chocolate Frosty.

I have to side with the SC on this one. I too want a milkshake in its original flavor (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milkshake#1880s.E2.80.931930s).

When the term "milkshake" was first used in print in 1885, milkshakes were an alcoholic whiskey drink that has been described as a "sturdy, healthful eggnog type of drink, with eggs, whiskey, etc., served as a tonic as well as a treat".

The original flavor was milk, shaken, not stirred.

Yes well, I could teach you, but I'd have to charge...

Ugh, another idiot.

His poor wife probably thought he knew her well enough to know what flavor she likes.

"Oh, you want the original flavour? Okay, go find a cow and milk it. Have a nice day!"

That's what I would have loved to have said lol.

I wonder if that's how 007 gets his...
