Also… why did you just come along when I won’t be needing you for very long?
I admit it, tonight I ate at McDonald’s. I know I just moaned the other day about my weight but I did say that it might not be today that I sort my shit out.
One thing I have to say, when you don’t eat McDonald’s very often, it tastes pretty damn good.
Anyway that’s not why I’m writing this. When I walked in I saw these things…
Wtf?? How long have they been there? I know I didn’t eat McDonald’s for almost a year but jeez… it’s the coolest thing ever! Xander and I went to this little console and put our bank card in. We then used the touch screen to place our order and paid for it.
This is no lie… by the time we turned around and walked the five steps to the counter, the order was on a tray and waiting for us!
OMG!!! No more waiting in line! At dinner rush hour we had our food within approximately three minutes of walking through the door.
Of course, it’s probably the last time I will have McDonalds for a very, very, very long time, so I won’t be able to make the best of it, but I did get to experience it this once. Xander and I (being the geeks that we are) were in wholehearted agreement that it is, indeed, the best thing since sliced bread.
So, I’m curious… is the Netherlands ahead or behind the times with this thing? Are these consoles already old news back in North America or are we actually ahead of the game on this one?
