Would You Like Some Fries With That?

FADE IN

INT. MCDONALD’S – AFTERNOON

EMPLOYEE
Yes sir, how may I help you?

CUSTOMER
Yeah, I want 2 Hot & Spicy’s; one regular, other buffalo ranch.

EMPLOYEE
Okay, that will be $2.19

As the customer waits on the preparation of his food, he overhears the manager talking to a customer in the drive-thru.

DRIVE-THRU
My food was cold!

MANAGER
Mam, I can replace the fish sandwich but I can’t replace the fries; it’s only 3 left in here. Why did you eat them if they were cold?

DRIVE-THRU
I want some hot fries or I want my money back!

MANAGER
I can replace the fish sandwich because it was intact but you only left 3 fries in the box.

DRIVE-THRU
And if you touch them you will feel how cold they are!

MANAGER
Maybe it’s because it’s been 15 minutes since your original visit?

DRIVE-THRU
Nah, McDonald’s use that special industrial grease that keep your food hot a long time; y’all just gave me some shit out the freezer.

MANAGER
Mam, I’m sorry, McDonald’s policy is to not replace food that’s been consumed or a shell of its former self. But, you know what, I will give you a free small fry.

DRIVE-THRU
I had a muthafucking large!

EMPLOYEE
Sir, here’s your 2 Hot & Spicy’s.

CUSTOMER
Thanks!

As the customer walks off the McDonald’s parking lot, right where vehicles enter and exit, a big truck doing the latter, almost runs him over. Fortunately, the roaring engine and his peripheral vision saved his life. However, he was still angry, upset enough to throw one of his McChicken’s through the truck’s rolled down windows, hitting the driver smack in the face. Frustrated. He walks back into McDonald’s.

CUSTOMER
I need to replace a Hot & Spicy!

EMPLOYEE
Why?

CUSTOMER
I had to throw one at that lady that was just in the drive-thru for almost running me over.

Overhearing this, the manager comes to the counter. Knowing he couldn’t see the makeup of the vehicle or its occupants because of the wall barrier between the drive-thru and register area, she is curious.

MANAGER
How did the vehicle look?

CUSTOMER
It was a hulking grayish SUV.

MANAGER
Who was in it?

CUSTOMER
An older woman was driving. A man was on the passenger side. He had a blue hat on. There was a younger girl in the backseat with braids in her head. And it looked like a baby seat was next to her.

MANAGER (smiling)
Would you like some fries with that?

CUSTOMER (smiling)
Make ’em hawt!

One thought on “Would You Like Some Fries With That?”

  1. I know this wasn’t in the upcoming titles list but this couldn’t wait. I’m still figuring out Shade But No Shade. I came up with this ending soon as the truck pulled off.

    After I’m done with the finale of my YouTube series, I’m going to downgrade my software so I can draw comics again. I miss it. 😥
