Getting The Order Correct At McDonald's! Is It Rocket Science???

OK folks, I know this may sound trivial and down right crazy but I'm going to blog on it to see what you think! Hear me out and understand the problem!

Everyone on the planet darn near has visited McDonald's. It's worldly icon and it will probably be the first form of food to be available on the ISS (International Space Station) which I think is only fitting! However there is a problem that "McD's" needs to fix before "they boldly go where no burger has gone before." McD's management at the store level and at the corporate level need to train their employees on how to get an order correct when it comes to what the customer says they want. Now I'm not saying don't up sell apple pies and drinks but the people who work in drive through and in-store need to really listen to the customer and hear what they want! Let me explain!

When I go to McD's drive thru or in-store I like to order a "Quarter Pounder" an original "core" sandwich at McD's. The Quarter Pounder was invented in 1971. When I place my order the employee always ask me do I want cheese on it? I say no and they turn and tell the cook "One Quarter Ham" please. Now I have learned over the years of ordering at McD's how to order to get exactly what I want, so I figured I would say what the order taker would say to the cook to get what I wanted. Sounds pretty simple to me...Not so fast! The order taker still ask me if I wanted cheese on my burger.

So when I return another time and I order my Quarter Pounder I say "may I have a Quarter Ham please" and what does the employee do? Ask me if I want cheese!!! I say no again! Then they turn around and say "One Quarter Ham!" What's up with that? I ask for for a burger in McDonald's employee terminology and the employee disregards the terminology and hears only what they want to hear.

Then to top things off they want to charge me the same price for a Qtr Ham as a Qtr Ham with cheese which makes no sense to me! So when I inquire about the differences in prices or lack there of, the employees tell me that they must charge me the same price for a "Quarter Ham" as a "Quarter Pounder with Cheese" there is no pricing difference. Why not??? (Considering a regular hamburger cost one price and their regular cheeseburger cost is a little more because of the cheese being added.) By me not adding cheese to my sandwich the employee has to do more keystrokes than the single one touch entry for a Quarter Pounder with cheese! More work= more time in line for the employee and the customer.

Another Instance

A friend also runs into the same problem when he goes through drive-thru. He likes to order an Egg McMuffin (Egg, Cheese and Ham/Canadian Bacon). Again a original "core" menu item that has been with McD's since 1972. His problem is when he orders this, the McD's employee asks if he would like sausage on that? Who puts sausage on Ham/Canadian bacon at McD's? How do you confuse this item in an order? It's name indicates the sandwich differences from the other breakfast sandwiches. Now there is a "Sausage McMuffin with an Egg" sandwich which my friend doesn't order. He goes to several different stores and even when he goes inside the store thinking maybe it was a communication problem with the drive-thru intercom, he got the exact same results! Employees trying to add sausage to the Egg McMuffin sandwich.

Training Methodology
This is not a miscommunication problem, this is a training methodology. I think it's also a shortcut in transaction time to get the customer in and out of drive-thru quickly! Now I know some will say this is nuts to talk about but I'm here to tell you if you say nothing then the fast-food franchises don't really have the customers wants in mind. It's all about getting the customer in and out quickly hence the term "Fast Food!" It may be fast but it's not always right!

Come on McD's fix the problem! This is not rocket science, so why is it so hard for your employees to get the orders correct? It's about customer service and really listening to what the customer wants. Not everyone who orders a hamburger wants cheese on it (which is how you make it seem), and not everyone wants a meal when they just want a sandwich. Did you ever think that maybe, just maybe most people on the planet know what the McDonald's menu is and they know what they want before they order. The menu has not really changed that much in it's history at least with the core items!

I know I'm crazy for blogging about this but if nothing is said people will not get what they want when they go to McD's and that's not right and I really do enjoy the food there. I have been going since I was a little kid with my father and brother and it was a weekly treat and I have done the same with my son some 30+ years later. What your training your employees to do is not good customer service this is cattle herding!!! The days of customer service have all but dissolved away and as a corporate entity you know this and instead of going back to what got you where you are today you change your own corporate model and do business as usual!!!

This will post on Facebook and Twitter in the hopes that McDonald's hears about it and makes some changes!!!

Mr. Lovettelli has spoken and you will listen!!!

One of Tiger Woods Playtoys Appears On Golf Balls

Twelve of Tiger Woods mistresses’ faces appear on a set of golf balls disturbed by the company Creative Classics and is called the Mistress Collection. The set is available at the website “Tail of the Tiger.” The slogan on the Tail of the Tiger site reads: He likes to play a round with them…now you can too!” (Notice the play on the word ‘around’). Though the golf balls are receiving a humorous reaction from the public, as reported in the video below, new reports have surfaced stating that at least one of Tiger Woods’ mistresses isn’t pleased.

Tiger Woods’ Mistresses

Joslyn James, who reportedly is one of the porn stars linked to Tiger, has retained the services of Gloria Allred and has voiced outcry over the golf balls. According to a statement released, Joslyn James is concerned that the ‘risk of violence against women may be increased because of the product.’ The golf balls have been produced and are sold online. They debuted during the PGA Merchandise Show at the Orange County Convention Center.

Joslyn James is expected to hold a press conference today with her attorney Gloria Allred. When that press conference occurs, we’ll bring you the video.

Breaking Down A Conversation About Tiger Woods (In a forum)

Hello all! This is a little bit of a forum I was in and the conversation surrounding the Tiger Woods news! I replied to multiple post on the subject with this one post so sorry if it sounds like it's all over the place but I was replying to many post at once! Just my opinions on some of the subject!!!

Mr. Lovettelli

This is where it starts and a young lady started the post! (Her words are in italics)

Hi fellas,

Im watching the media frenzy about Tiger Woods and wondering a couple of things 1. Why did he marry the help? 2. When is the black side going to take over and put this situation to rest? I can't amagine many real black men handling this situation in this manor. 3. Out of all the mistresses there could not have been one that was black or asian?

I think Y'all are missing some key issues here!

1. Tiger was a freak before he met ole girl and he was just looking to have the ultimate catch! Fellas know that if you’re going after the white girls by world standards it's the Nordic chicks and not white chicks from say like UK! Nordics are thicker because it's colder where they come from, they are all about the freak card and they do have some pretty women for the most part, they are tech savvy considering Denmark has the highest number of cell phones and computers per person per capita in the world. So odds are in his favor that she is not going to be stupid!

2. Freak Card! When Elin realized he was more than a vanilla lover she "CHOSE" to stick around because after all he is Tiger Woods! So don't feel sorry for her in this situation because she chose to be there and if his freakish ways were not her cup of tea then she should have left while she had a chance but NOOO!!! She saw his bank account and his commercials every Saturday and Sundays on TV and she weighed her pros and cons and chose his money, fame and status with his access to Net Jets and flying where he wants when he wants! Give me a break, she didn't listen to all the other women on the planet speak when they say the familiar phrase "WHAT YOU WON'T DO FOR YOUR MAN, ANOTHER WOMAN WILL!!!" Sista's will co-sign that fact 24/7/365!!!

Tiger's Accessible Jet With NetJets (Fractional Ownership Program)

3. The type of women he chose makes perfect sense in a weird sort of way! Ladies how many times have you heard of or experienced being cheated on and the girl the guy cheated with was with was not as attractive and you wondered why! I hear women saying why Tiger didn't choose Beyonce' or Brandi...well one reason is he already had a dime piece! Black or white is irrelevant the fact is she is very attractive, nice figure and she already had her own money! So what did he want??? It's simple and just that, he wanted the simple or average everyday woman. His wife doesn't stroke his ego and money, fame and status is not enough and she didn't provide it! Average woman will be in awe about who she is with regardless of the later tales that may surface! She will do "WHATEVER" Tiger is wanting so that they can be with him! Freaky and doing what he wants to receive the small gifts of appreciation...who says women are not prostitutes! They all have a price!!!

He has never had the normal dating life and he wants to date the average chick because he already has the ultimate looking wife! Ladies you can hate on her if you want but you don't make her kind of money as a model or doing appearances by looking like a scrub from the US regardless of your race!!!

"Show me a man with a beautiful woman, perfect figure and makes her own money and I'll show you a man who can't stand her ass!!!" Ladies this refers to what I said about the less than attractive woman be you out! She doesn't have to be fine she has to do the do! Tiger could give a damn about what these women look like within' reason of course but I bet he can tell you what they all can do and how well they do it and he doesn't get that at home!!! That's what he is looking for!!!

One girl even said ("Mindy Lawton told the British tabloid The News of the World she carried on a year-long affair with Woods that began in the spring of 2006. The 33-year-old restaurant manager said she and the golfer would meet up about every two weeks and that "all he cared about was lust." Tiger, I see a freak right here! Redhead, nothing fancy and if you make the call she is ready for the world!!!") You can read it on my blog on it here at Mr. Lovettelli Speaks Check it out!

We as average folk can't understand what is going on other than what the news tells us! Our mindset is different when it comes to playing at that level and most women will put up with alot when that kind of money is involved! Ask Kobe's wife, Michael Jordan or Shaq and see who left the limelight and the lifestyle? Elin is trying to save face at this point and she took the richest athlete in the world for $100 million or so and that makes her the true "Queen Mack!" She new what she was doing and it was a calculated risk and she gambled and took it!

So before you run off at the mouth blasting Tiger about what he has done or not, look and see if you have the same addiction or competitive drives and desires you will forego all else to feed that beast!!! Family is family but desires are deeper than that especially when it sexual in nature! Tiger will recover with or without Elin but I bet you once she is out of his hair he can do as he wishes and he has had the best looking woman and all it got him was headaches and heartaches!!! Sometimes being pretty on the outside doesn't make you so pretty on the inside!

I guess there is something to the old saying "Men get yourself an ugly woman because she will be the most loyal freak on the planet and will love you how you like forever!" A pretty woman is there to break your heart and drive you crazy!!!

A pretty face on the outside with a bangin' body is great but what’s on the inside get's you past day 2!!!

"I can't imagine many real black men handling this situation in this manor."

Citygirl , This is true but don't make it sound like Tiger isn't black because regardless of the semantics it's not what he says it's how he appears to everyone! First glance "HE'S A BLACK MAN!!!" Most everyday men deal with this all the time but the difference is it's not played out on ESPN all day! So of course they wouldn't handle it the same way! You can't!!!

Black folk need to get off the issue of Tiger being black or not!!! Most of you were not supporting Tiger when he was winning and going to the golf courses when he plays, buying up his gear so don't trip when he does something that all of a sudden makes "Black People Look Bad!!!"

Black folk weren't trippin when Russell Simmons and his wife Kimora split up but the ladies all own Baby Phat gear or wear Kimora's perfumes and stuff and the fellas are walking around in Sean John even though Diddy is not portraying what everyone thinks how a good black man with wealth would act but ya'll are supporting him left and right!

This just goes to show you that money or not most people can relate to a point about someone else's situation and we all need to remember that we need to be careful what we ask for because we just might get it and that may be more than we need or can handle!!!

Details of Elin Woods' Newly Rewritten Prenup Emerge

Elin and Tiger Woods had a prenuptial agreement, as expected. The couple is undergoing marital counseling, as you'd also expect. And now The Daily Beast is reporting that Elin Woods is renegotiating that prenup to get an immediate $5 million payout from her husband and as much as $55 million more to stay with him for two more years.

The initial prenup was worth $20 million after 10 years of marriage. However, the Chicago Sun-Times' Bill Zwecker has reported that Elin Woods will receive an immediate payment "into an account she alone controls," and that the 10-year timeframe -- which began when they married in 2004 -- has been shortened and the value increased "substantially."

The Daily Beast quotes "a lawyer familiar with the couple's negotiations" in reporting that the term of the prenup has been shortened to seven years, and that a series of staggered payments could increase the total value to $75 million.
But apparently there's also a behavioral component to all this: Elin Woods must "be a dutiful wife in showing up with him at social events and in public as if they were still the perfect couple, and sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story."

It's important to note that to date, there's no concrete evidence that Elin Woods has ever been anything but the perfectly dutiful golf wife. I'm sure the Woodses would like nothing more than to portray domestic calm to the world, and Elin Woods now apparently has several million more reasons to do just that.

Tiger Woods Potential Harem! What Does Tiger Really Like And Want?

What's up good people! I put my comments in "Italics" so you understand where I'm coming from on this one!

So Tiger has been working hard in creating his own harem but some of his choices leave me wondering what he was going for! Some of these ladies are attractive to most guys and then others obviously had other attributes that outweighed the physical qualities!

His wife Elin, an accomplished model is nothing bad to look at and rumors have it that her figure bounced back after two kids! So what was Tiger looking for to kill his appetite for the ladies? Was it his never being satisfied with a gorgeous woman or is there an underlying factor or desire?

Tiger in my opinion is a freak at the highest level and his super model wife is a "vanilla sex" chick and Tiger needs his freak button pushed and wifey wasn't doing it! Ever hear the phrase "if your woman won't do it, there is a woman that will?" Well looks like the wife is just good looks and an arm trophy!

It's obvious that some of these ladies are pretty but freak status and willing to do whatever Tiger wants is what got them involved with Tiger! Women always say they would do anything to hook up with a guy with money, status and or power! Well these women definitely put out the freak card enough to tempt Tiger's lustful palette for a sexual freak!

They know he was married and to whom so they new they were the mistress and a long-term relationship was not on the table so if a sexual encounter is what he is after these ladies new they had to be open to pretty much anything in order to get a repeat performance and any perks they may come along with!

3 of the ladies are blond and the rest all were dark haired and the redhead Mindy Lawton is strictly a freak! She is plain jane and she must do some stuff because the competition seems to be tough! Who knows but Mindy, Jaimee and Rachel seem to be more of the freaks what he likes that don't look like his wife!

We shall see what will come of all this! I know one thing! Tiger if your going to use your playa card you need to do things a little cleaner because it's not like your an unknown person anywhere in the world! Pick your playthings and keep them to yourself and quit thinking your the ultimate baller! Plus if your going to cheat get with someone that is equal to or better looking than your wife! (I know hard to pull off) If it's all about your "freakdom" then use your money and connections to give you the privacy to get your freak on!

All in all you made a big mistake by playing this game and you messed up big and now your human like the rest of us! You got married and if you knew Elin was not as freaky as you like then you needed to keep her on the side and not get married! Some women only play the freak card until you marry them and then they shut down! You married her and this is what you get so straighten up and fly right!

Mr. Lovettelli Has Spoken And You Will Listen!!!

Holly Sampson

Alleged mistress #7: Holly Sampson Is this porn star Tiger mistress No. 7? Click here to see more photos of Sampson.
OK, I guess if you want to guarantee your truest freak then you get your favorite porn star and since you can afford it...OK!

Cori Rist

Yet another blond was just added to Tiger Woods' sultry score and rounds out the golfer's six lovers (so far). Woods reportedly met Rist, 31, at the Manhattan club Butter last year and is said to have been secreted around the country for her hookups with Woods. Tiger, the Hooters chick!!! I hope she was worth it! Looks good but really how freaky is she???

Jamie Jungers

Las Vegas cocktail waitress and model Jamie Kungers, 26, joins the gaggle of girls linked to Woods. The busty blonde apparently began her affair with the golf champ in his suburban Orland home in 2004 when she was just 20 years old, according to TMZ.com. Woods married his wife, Elin Nordegren, in October of that same year. Tiger, sorry this one was for what??? I don't see it at all! She was 20 when you was tapping this...What kind of skills did she have or was she just close???

Mindy Lawton

Mindy Lawton told the British tabloid The News of the World she carried on a year-long affair with Woods that began in the spring of 2006. The 33-year-old restaurant manager said she and the golfer would meet up about every two weeks and that "all he cared about was lust." Tiger, I see a freak right here! Redhead, nothing fancy and if you make the call she is ready for the world!!! you get points on this one for the max freak level!

Kalika Moquin

The third woman linked to Woods emerged on the same day the world's top golfer issued his"profound apology" for "transgressions." The Las Vegas nightclub executive hooked up with Woods more than once at his Las Vegas hotel during the weekend of Oct. 23, reported Life & Style magazine. Uh No!!!! I don't think so!!!! She must have been able to swing from a ceiling fan or something because I don't see it!!! To each his own I guess!!!

Jaimee Grubbs

Different city, same game. Los Angeles cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs also claims to have had a torrid 31-month affair with Tiger. Grubbs, who seems to be enjoying the media attention, dished the dirty details to UsWeekly about sexy photos and 300 racy texts she has from the golfer, as well as their more than 20 sexual encounters. Tiger, this to me shows your not so much like OJ after all!!! Still got a little brotha in ya!!! A little to Hollywood with the face and nose job looks but ok I see the change up was necessary!!!

Rachel Uchitel

And the woman who started it all ... Meet Rachel Uchitel, the first woman caught in the storm of controversy surrounding golf champ Tiger Wood's car accident. The 34-year-old party girl and trendy nightclub hostess denies sleeping with Tiger. But who is the lucky lady who thought she had tamed the Tiger? Tiger, I want you to take off your shirt so I can see your cape because you had to be "Captain Save A Ho" for this one!!! Dry spell or felt sorry for the Vegas waitress??? Nice face but considering your wifes kurves, Jaimee, Mindy and pornstar Holly this was a big stretch or you got better as you went along or your needs changed as you played more!

Wife Elin

How could anyone cheat on this woman?! Former Swedish model Elin Nordegren married Woods in 2004 and is the mother of his two young children, Sam, 2, and Charlie, 10 months. So far the stunning beauty has maintained her silence as to whether she'll stick by her husband of five years after his alleged betrayal. Above, a 21-year-old Elin models a yellow bikini in 2002.

Katt Williams Out On Bond, Says Incident Was ”Misunderstanding”

From AJC/HotSpotATL

Comedian Katt Williams kept it light at his bond hearing Monday, telling the judge he could have his $200,000 Bentley if it would get him out of jail quicker.

Coweta County Magistrate Judge Joseph Wyatt settled for a $41,150 bail for the actor and TV personality, charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor criminal trespassing.

Williams was arrested Sunday night after the an employee at the Coweta estate where the comedian is staying called 911 to report a break-in at a guesthouse located on the property. The caller said the 36-year-old part-time Atlantan stole jewelery and other personal items, though Coweta County Sheriff Mike Yeager said authorities have not located the missing merchandise.

“This was a misunderstanding between me and two stupid detectives,” said Williams as he emerged from the Coweta jail Monday night. He was mobbed by about 50 excited fans before departing in a van filled with friends and associates.

In court Judge Wyatt agreed this was no “typical” burglary. Williams said he was staying at producer Barry Hankerson’s Coweta estate, located in the 3400 block of Smokey Road, while in town filming a movie about President Barack Obama.

“I was in the middle of a birthday party” when arrested, Williams told the judge. “I’m one of the most honorable people in my profession,” said the father of eight children, seven of whom were adopted.

This wouldn't be the first time police were dispatched to the Coweta estate. An unidentified 17-year-old called 911 on Nov. 3, claiming Williams was holding him against his will.

"He threatened to beat me up," said the caller, who told a sheriff's deputy he was trying to catch a plane to New York City. No charges were filed but the incident remains under investigation.
It's been a turbulent year for the comedian, whose birth name is Micah Williams. He was arrested almost a year ago to the day in New York City for gun possession, though charges were eventually dropped.

He was also reportedly admitted to a South Carolina psychiatric ward last November. His publicist at the time blamed his erratic behavior on exhaustion. Williams' credits include the comedy "First Sunday" and the Eddie Murphy film, "Norbit." He also headlined an HBO special, "Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1," shot in Atlanta.
