$.10 for 1 pickle!
By Sharon - 08/18/2009
HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA -- I ordered 2 McDoubles off the dollar menu - 1 with no pickles, 1 with extra. Not only did they charge me $.10 for the extra pickles, there was only one! Of course, they did not deduct $.10 for the no pickles order. When I questioned the manager, she "didn't know" why they charge for pickles. Wow, what great customer service.

Wow...how do you justify that? All the sandwich maker had to do was not put pickles on one sandwich and add more to the other. =/ Thumbs down to Mickey D's this time!
Pepper on 08/18/2009:
or just move the pickle over afterwards
unless there's a deathly reaction to pickles in the mix

Wow, talk about nickel and diming it. Hmmmmm... *shrugs*

You can always get all the tarterbiz you could ever want from Mickey D's.
Slimjim on 08/18/2009:
Agreed. Evidently tartar sauce, at any volume you can handle (and then some), is included at no extra cost.
Slimjim on 08/18/2009:
Pepper makes a good point. Instead of special ordering two sammies and risking double the errors, a pickle transfer would seem to make sense.
BokiBean on 08/18/2009:
That's really not bad customer service, but instead is the way they charge for things. If you don't like that, just perform the pickle switcheroo...it would be easier than typing the complaint.
Anonymous on 08/18/2009:
That's easy for you to say Boki you weren't out the dime for the extra pickle.
i_am_canadian on 08/18/2009:
Or failing that, you can pick up the pieces of this pickle predicament and move on with your life.

I don't agree with having to do any pickle transferring lol. Not only is there a risk to allergic reactions, but customer service within every industry has gone so downhill the last decade that it has become the norm. There's no reason the order taker couldn't have rung the order up normally, then advise the sandwich maker to put the pickles from one of the sandwiches on the other. I work customer service, so I know how ridiculous some peoples' expectations can be, but this could have been a simple task performed to maintain a satisfied customer.

I don't mind if the employee does the pickle transfer..but they're going to charge for the extra pickle. It could be that you're paying for expertise.. =/
Anonymous on 08/18/2009:
Sucks that you had to pay the dime to get the pickle (and I believe McD's shouldn't have charged) but in the grand scheme of things I don't know that I would let it ruffle my feathers this badly. There are bigger things in a day to contend with.

Stew, don't patronize me. I've never belittled your comments. I am entitled to my opinon, as it is written and I am standing by it. If it was my dime I would know to cancel the order or not to order the extra condiment this time or in the future then I would move on.
Pepper on 08/18/2009:
CJC - that's why I added in the part "unless there's a deathly reaction"

but for my scenario the customer would be doing the switching

John, We're all entitled to our opinions and our opinions about others opinions and our opinions of their opinions about our opinions about their opinions. I wasn't trying to patronize you or belittle your comment or anything else of the such. I was merely making a point albeit in my own subtle and usually misunderstood way.

Well Stewart, I see you are sashaying around this pickle debate spreading that charm that only another Oklahoman could put up with.
Here is my take on this "beef" about a pickle slice (or the lack of). If you want a burger your way then feel free to prepare it at your home and if you want a burger with no pickle then you can DEPICKLE it yourself like most normal people do. The OP probably ticked off the sandwich artist with this tomfoolery and got even with him/her. Times are tough even at Micky D's.
MG, this happened in Pennsylvannia. At least no one was killed, booed or crowned with a Grey Goose bottle!
BokiBean on 08/18/2009:
OMG BKK..no pickles whatsoever? I'll try anything pickled and mostly like it..pickled okra is one of my favorites.

And OK is okay..the whiners are tryin' to do it in. I stayed there for 3 months one year and had a blast!

Hey Boki, I pickled some green tomatoes last week.
My "HOMEBURGER" has to have at least 5 pickles on it.
Ever had pickled or Sushi Ginger? Good stuff!

I have pickled AND crystal ginger both at the house right now. I freakin' love that stuff! Its best with sushi, but sometimes, late night..I just crave a piece (of sushi ginger haha).

You put up pickles?????!!!! You da man! I love that about you..I'm coming over.

Well don't hold the pickles, BKK, I'll eat em.. Very Happy
Anonymous on 08/18/2009:
I ran across some red jalapenos at a farmer's market and they are "atomic!" I put a slice or two in with my regular jar of pickles and the ginger and it gave them a good kick!! I eat them as a snack, too.
Hey, to me ANYTHING pickled is good from carrots to cauliflower to HERRING!
BokiBean on 08/18/2009:
Yeah! Its fantastic..lol
Anonymous on 08/18/2009:
I have had Kimchi before but it has been awhile. Fermented Cabbage, right? Isn't it like the southern condiment called Chi-Chi?
BKat, I can't stand the bread and butter pickles either. What a waste of a cucumber.

Pepper on 08/18/2009:
actually that is a good point
no burger joint can make a burger taste better than what I can make at home.

I like wango tango sauce on mine sometimes.

and I use those "sandwich thins" for the bun

BokiBean on 08/18/2009:
ooo I love bread and butter pickles..and watermelon pickles (a huge favorite).

Kimchi is Korean, from what I've had explained to me..and it does smell to high heaven, but to me, cabbage pretty much always does.

Watermelon pickles?

Anonymous on 08/18/2009:
There is no charge for the relish at OnCue. It's in a self serve dispensing machine that applies it to your tubular food or anything else you can hoist under the relish dispenser.
Ytropious on 08/18/2009:
This reminds me of an incident while I was in line at Mcdonalds the other day. A guy came in and asked for a cup of water, and was charged 10 cents because they don't give courtesy cups anymore at that location. The guy was angry because "his hands are dirty" and he'd gladly just cup his hands and drink if he could. He could have just gone into the bathroom and washed them. The entire thing was odd but I bet a lot of people get a "water cup" and fill them with soda.
i_am_canadian on 08/18/2009:
No, and why should they? The Tim Horton's I worked in didn't give away free cups either.
Ytropious on 08/18/2009:
When I worked in a place that sold food and people asked for water, we had clear cups to give them to make sure they were at least drinking water....or sprite.
D. on 08/18/2009:
I didn't read through all the comments, but the next time, just order both with pickles and take it off the one and put it on the other...then you'll have just what you ordered, one with extra pickle and one without...

D. on 08/18/2009:
OK...I see everyone above me agrees with me...that's always a good sign.

Hey...for those who commented about being charged the ten cents for the extra pickle, they wouldn't charge again if she orders two with the pickle and took if from on to the other, because then she wouldn't have to order 'extra'...no extra equals no extra charge.

for crying out loud stew, I will send you a dollar to cover all the people who said "it is only a dime".


if a dime is going to make a difference to someone, they have zero business buying fast food!!!!!!!!!!

after all, 2 quid buys a lot of dry noodle soups.

Mad, you have a valid point about the dime or lack of one at a FF joint.
Now in Stewart's case this hits home for another reason.
When he is a dime short, the LQ downgrades his beer order from a Fat Tire to a PBR! How would you like that?

See you all at the house. Quittin' time.
Sharon on 08/18/2009:
Wow, I had no idea so many comments would come from my venting. It wasn't the dime, it was the principal. I always order "no pickles" for my daughter; however, this time, her friend was with us and she wanted "extra" pickles. Had I known I would be charged, I certainly would have opted for a "pickle switcheroo". The big issue here is being "nickel and dimed". I recently lunched Pizza Hut/KFC with some co-workers, 2 in our group had water and were charged! It is getting ridicules.
Pepper on 08/18/2009:
for water? what did the bill say?
the only time they can charge you for water I thought, was if you had bottled water

unless the group was over 6, in which case there might be a mandatory tip but...
Anonymous on 08/18/2009:
In AZ, it's illegal to refuse patrons water. I've never been charged extra for water out here. If anyplace tried, I'd be hella pissed. It's 113 here today and I had to walk a mile to pick my nephew up from school.
