It's not what you think.
As if it isn't bad enough that the fast-food chains of the world offer ginormous serving sizes and charge you less for those than they do for the regular size servings, thus forcing you to purchase the over sized servings; I have recently uncovered another menacing plot of theirs.
What is it? What could it be?
Let me just explain how I came by this little discovery.

I stopped at a well known hamburger chain after dropping my girls off at Activity Days, to pick up some burgers for dinner. I'd just returned home about three hours prior from my long road trip to Utah, and had NO desire to prepare dinner.
I ordered 12 cheeseburgers, 3 medium fries and a couple drinks.
Upon getting into my car, I discovered that I was short one cheeseburger. Swearing ensued.
I was tired. I didn't feel like going all the way back inside to complain about my missing burger. So, I just complained all the way home instead.

I decided to stop and have lunch with my husband at his work.
I chose the drive-thru at a well known taco chain. I ordered about four taco type things, nachos and cheese sauce (for the boys) and an order of cinnamon twisty things.
I exited the drive-thru lane and peeked inside my bags to make sure I got everything. Lo and behold, I was missing my cinnamon twisty things!!!!!!!! Tongue biting ensued. Would have been swearing but four little ears in the back seat helped me to hold my tongue. Well, one swear word might have slipped out.
I was definitely not going inside, because of my precious cargo--it's a royal pain in the kiester to get them out of the car, and I wasn't going back through the drive-thru lane. So I just grumbled all the way to Jon's work.
Do you see what's going on here? Aside from the fact that I obviously eat too much fast-food?
Inconspicuously, one dollar at a time; they're ripping us off!!!!!
Think about it.
