'Pouring it into a cup in view of the customer draws attention to the huge markup.'

My local bistro pours my wine from a bottle, although the mark up is only about 80%. How is it different?

Actually, that's a pretty good McDonald's. They went to the trouble to get some 2 liters. Most McDonald's restaurants in my area would just "We outta Coke."

And on a similar topic, has ANYONE ever been a McDonald's when the ice cream machine was actually working?

Burger king sucks. I went there last night. They took 20 minutes to get my order wrong.

at first I thought it was hilarious, but then I scrolled down and got the joke.

Why, exactly?


I'll give my answer, which might or might not be the same as OldOllie's answer.


Pouring it into a cup in view of the customer draws attention to the huge markup. It's basically saying "hey hey hey! We're selling you this drink at 10 times what we paid for it! Sucker!"

Which, of course, is what happens all the time. It's just a matter of how obviously it's being done.

Even if they didn't run out, Coke frequently has to service the fountain. Even if it doesn't break, they have to do quality checks every so often and they need to shut the system down. No big deal.

It's like CaptainPat said. Sometimes you run out of something (in this case, fountain syrup), and then your boss gets your attention, slips you a $20 and tells you to go to the nearby grocery and buy some to tide you over until you get another shipment in.

I worked at a Big Boy.

You Know You're At A Bad McDonald's When...they give you coke and you ordered coke? Makes sense.
