I want to finish posting all the good stuff from the trip, but a situation has developed that must be discussed.
Once Upon A Time, The Palace spent some time in a third world country that did not have Sonic.
The Palace enjoyed their time in the third world country, but longed for the day they could return to the joy & delight of Sonic Happy Hour.
The Queen, in particular, had been anticipating her Sonic reunion for 13 days.
This was their order:
1 Junior Frito Chili Cheese Wrap (Queen B)
1 Junior Breakfast Burrito (The King)
1 Junior Breakfast Burrito minus sausage (The Princess)
1 order Mozzarella Sticks with Marinara (The Princess)
1 Large Diet Coke (Queen B)
1 Large Unsweet Tea with 3 Splenda (The King)
1 Medium Sweet Tea (The Princess)
To which the Sonic Lady replied: "We can't do that anymore."
To which The King replied: "Do what?"
To which The Sonic Lady replied: "Take off the sausage."
To which The King replied: "Excuse me?"
To which The Sonic Lady replied: "We can't serve the Junior Breakfast Burrito without sausage."
To which The King replied: "I don't mean to be rude, but could you please tell me why? We've placed this exact order countless times."
To which The Sonic Lady replied: "We lose money."
To which The King replied: "You lose money by removing the sausage?"
(Insert Queen B shaking hysterically with silent laughter.)
To which The Sonic Lady replied: "They say we lose money."
To which The King replied: "I'm not asking you to replace the sausage with anything. I just want it out of the burrito."
To which The Sonic Lady replied: "We'd have to add extra egg."
To which The King replied: "I don't want the extra egg. I just want the sausage out of the burrito."
To which The Sonic Lady replied: "Hang on."
(Insert The King & Queen B staring at one another incredulously.)
The Sonic Lady returned and replied: "No. I can't remove the sausage."
To which The King replied: "Let's just remove the entire burrito. I'm pretty sure that you are losing money now, too."
The King piped back up: "Ma'am? Why don't you just forget the entire order."
The Sonic Lady replied: "Ok."
(Insert Queen B looking longingly at the picture of the Large Diet Coke on the menu board.)
The King then said to Queen B, "Look up the Sonic corporate number".
Queen B responded, "For real?"
The King looked at Queen B in that serious way that meant he was for real.
Queen B looked up Sonic Corporate for their region.
The King called.
He asked for the boss.
He went through the entire conversation.
The Sonic Boss said there is no rationing of sausage or egg at any Sonic location.
The Sonic Boss was embarrassed and apologetic.
The Sonic Boss offered coupons.
The King turned them down.
(Insert Queen B whacking The King in the head.)
The King thanked The Sonic Boss for his time and attention.
The King drove a few blocks to the next Sonic and placed the original order.
The Palace received their food and lived happily ever after.
