McDonald's Drive-Thru Surprise

"If your order is accurate on the screen, please pull to the first window."

It was, and I did. But when I left McDonalds, I had to wonder. How close to my order did they come?

1. I ordered a Hamburger Happy Meal with Apple Dippers and Chocolate milk.

2. Drive-Thru gave me two Happy Meal boxes, but no drinks for either.

3. When I looked inside the first box, I found one Hamburger Happy Meal, but with fries.

4. In the other, I found McNuggets, but no side. And, it was a 6-piece order, not the 4-piece standard with Happy Meals.

Secondary observation: On the Drive-Thru window, McDonalds was advertising for workers. The ad was in Spanish.

Distance from home: About 75 miles.
