The following McDonald's ad for the McFlurry, Sundae and Cones might at first appear idiotic since it so obviously states the obvious. However, it made me think about last weekend when my sister and I and our friend Melissa worked the door at my other sister's class reunion.
As we were getting our instructions from Bonnie, Melissa asked how much money we had to collect. Bonnie said, "It's $35 per person and $65 per couple." Melissa took out a piece of paper and wrote the following:
I looked at the paper and then looked at Melissa and said, "What's that?" She said, "It's our cheat sheet in case someone gives us a hundred dollar bill." I busted out laughing until I realized she was serious. I said, "I'm sorry. I thought you were kidding. Thanks." I've probably mentioned before that Melissa is a very intelligent person. Sure, she's insane, but, she's also very smart.
The joke was on me. After three Malibu Rum and Pineapple Juice cocktails, I was using the hell out of Melissa's cheat sheet. I don't know if it was because I knew I had that little crutch sitting there on the table right in front of me, but I swear to you, every time someone handed me a hundred dollar bill, my mind went completely blank and I had to look at Melissa's wonderful little sheet of paper to give the correct change.
Then again, it might have been the rum.
