You want 24/7 Mickey D's Breakfast, you need move to the land of the grease and the home of the bread.

Up until then, we never sausage a dumb reason to call the police.

/Meh.

I have to grant that The Sun has some pretty good headline writers.

Insp Taylor replied: "Knew there would be no need to egg you on with the puns".

I like a cop with a sense of humor. Seems to me that he was, in fact, a little amused.

Yeah, I've been in that situation before.  Back in the day, wake up hungover as hell, craving a couple sausage mcmuffins with egg. Get there five minutes late and breakfast is shut down.

I would just whine to myself and get a double cheeseburger instead of calling 911.

My mind went to that movie Falling Down and realizing how normalized that behavior and plot line have become in the last decade or so.

Well, it is pretty obscure.

The local place near me has breakfast all day and it is wonderful.

I guess it's silly to take it too literally. But the idea of giant corporation as servant to the consumer is far better than the contemporary American notion of giant corporation as master of all.

And you know all those lucky McDonald's employees are getting those unsold biscuits and sausage and egg-like reconstituted chicken like substitutes.

All of them near me stopped all-day breakfast. A real shame because there is nothing like that drunken 1 am sausage McMuffin in the back of an Uber.

I just realized that drunken 1 am McDonald's trips in the back of an Uber arent really a thing anymore and guess those two things just MIGHT be related.

Around here both jack and carl are closed for breakfast, leaving mickeys or the cafe on the slopes to feed our 9000 skiers. Mickeys line is about 20 minutes...
 
2021-01-23 11:04:22 AM  
"Are you still serving breakfast?"

"You mean like, today, or in general?"
 
2021-01-23 11:16:49 AM  
It's been a long time. Should I rewatch Falling Down?

Yay, home town on Fark! Yes, there are many, many stupid people in East Grinstead. Lots of geezers and geezer-birds. It's not known as East Grimstead for nothing.

/McDonald's in EG used to be a pub called The White Lion

Sausage Egg McMuffins are yummy.

The Sun has some of the best writers in the UK newspaper business. The Star (however many greenlights they buy) is illiterate trash but the Sun is tautly written, well phrased and often deliberately funny.

If that's normalized behavior where you live, I'd consider moving.

You know how hard it is to find a dual ocean front view?  Besides we don't know the neighbors were prone to heavy periods of black-out drug-fueled ragers where they turn into total assholes and terrorize the neighborhood  that sometimes last 8 freakin' years at a time.  Thank god this last one was only four.

Hey guys, it's a bit like that Falling Down movie!
Has anyone noted that yet?

Wendy Clark asked: "Did you give her a frying?"

Their competitor doesn't need to hide behind a pseudonym. They roast well enough on the official account.

I'd slather her McMuffins with Big Mac sauce.

This wouldn't be an issue anymore here in Canada, as others mentioned, but back when there was the cutoff, they forgot to put my McMuffin in my bag this one time.  Ordered and got my meal before 11:00, but only noticed the missing item at like 11:01, and they refused to do anything but substitute or refund me.  Was pretty pissed, although I didn't do anything crazy, lol.
