My wife was recently going through the photos in my iPhone Camera Roll. She came across a couple of random pictures that she was confused as to why I would have taken a picture of that. After I explained each to her, I had her cracking up. So here is the first of a couple random posts about random things I've come across recently in my travels.
Backstory: During my first trip ever to Charlotte, NC, I'm walking through a not so great part of town with a co-worker. We're on our way to meet other co-workers for some BBQ. After getting off the light rail train (which was super easy and convenient, highly recommend Charlotte Lynx Light Rail) we were walking towards a McDonald's when I glanced up at the customizaable 'old-skool' sign.
Highlight: It read "50 NUGGETS WITH TEA (GAL) $10.99. I thought WOW, that's a lot of TEA, and WOW that's a lot of NUGGETS. Awesome deal, I wish we had that back when I was in college, we would have eaten that deal up.
Deep Thought: Is a deal like this created at the local level? I don't believe I can get out of a California McDonald's with a regular size meal and drink for much less than $10.99. This meal could feed a family of 5. I was lucky that I had dinner plans with the rest of my team, or these 50 NUGGETS AND GAL OF TEA would have been my match for the night.
