Not a whole lot going on this week, but I will pass along this account, sent to me by a reader, of a recent hullabaloo at the Worst McDonald's Ever™.
A Mickey D’s employee, realizing that they were out of the odd-smelling pink liquid stuff, decided to refill the bathroom soap dispensers with an alcohol rub instead. Unsurprisingly, hijinks ensued when an elderly customer proceeded to use the hand sanitizer to cleanse her face.
The hysterical woman, eyes burning, complained to the manager, who, after investigating, asserted (chortling) that hand sanitizer was a perfectly acceptable replacement for soap. I hope they at least gave her free McNuggets or something.
I keep hearing the Ralph Wiggum in my head crying “My face is on fire!”
Also, they've really got to do something about that abandoned Army recruiting center on Georgia Avenue. It looks more like something from Route 66 than a "revitalized" downtown Silver Spring. There are freakin' trees growing out of it, for chrissake.
