    I believe it was you who insisted on bringing the kids to P.J. Piehole’s, Madeline.
    That, and, hey, Alice’s burger doesn’t have a little plastic sword!

    Now see, that’s why those hamburgers have the plastic swords or party toothpicks. It’s the only thing holding them together.

    It started out a troubled day, and now the end is nowhere in site.

    In the old days, the waitress would be accommodating, and go to the bar and get a plastic Martini sword, to keep the customer satisfied. And that was back when they made even less per hour than these days, with smaller tips since the prices were lower. Today, it is just hurry up and eat, we need your table for the next customer.

    Remember back in the late 1960s early 1970s when the Big Mac had a special toothpick to hold it together? Didn’t really need it, but it was for the effect of a hamburger stacked that high, a new concept in hamburgers. Today, two patties is nothing.

    And that was back when a dime bought a cup of coffee and a quarter bought a movie ticket.

    And minimum wage was $1 an hour.

    Once when our own version-of-Petey-son was about 7, he had a meltdown in a resturant because his mashed potatoes were under his plain broiled chicken. The kitchen probably thought it looked attractive. Hah! Did anyone else have to wait at McDonalds while they fixed a plain hamburger with nothing on it, just meat and bread? Glad to say his own kids eat everything with no complaints!

    Petey is one of those “special children” who need delicate handling and the patience of Job.

    Deja vu from 50 years ago….. when I was Petey’s age, my Mom’s policy was “it’s OK to whine and complain, but only one kid at time — take turns.” We used to hurry each up to get done so the next one could whine.

    I wouldn’t even touch McD hamburgers, I had to have BK because McD would just scrape off the mustard and ketchup BUT IT WAS ON THE BUN.
    .
    I was the only kid in 3rd grade that liked spinach but wouldn’t touch pizza with a ten foot pole….
