well my kids have a couple friends staying over tonight. I thought I would treat them with some icecream. So we went to McDonalds, and they didn't have any, so we went to Sonic, they didn't have any icecream. There was no other place to go so we went to the grocery store and I got some icecream and m&m's. It turned out better but still it was frustrating to want something and try to get it when they are suppose to have it. What the bad thing is that McDonalds seems to be out of icecream all the time. How often have you wanted something and when you went to go get it they didn't have it? Especially when its one of the main items on the list??

This happens to me a lot before. I am craving for something and then I would travel to get to the store but then I will just find out that the food I want is not available. It gets really frustrating. However, because of most of this incidents, I end up finding something else better in the same store or in a nearby store so in the end I get to try something new. Pretty good compensation hehe.

On a few different occasions lately my son has asked for a Icee when I go into the gas station and the machine was not working. I had to drive past a few other gas stations to get home, so I stopped at 2 of them to try and get him an Icee and BOTH of them had machines that were not working. He was not a happy camper at all, but settled for a cold soda.

i've gone to mcdonalds specifically for ice cream and two times they didn't have it. another time or two the flavor that i wanted wasn't available. but they serve it a lot and do a big business. i've worked in a restaurant before and at subway and people eat all the time. they never stop. we were often running out of stuff. no matter how much you have on hand you run through it fast during the noon time and supper time. you work to catch up in between times. and the ice cream machine is a lot of work to clean every day. and you must clean it everyday or people could get sick. as a customer it's a disappointment and inconvenience. but as a worker you are working constantly to fill non-stop eating public.

That's very annoying indeed. They must have run out of stock. If the items is selling like hotcakes, they should have plenty of stock for it. They should post items that are out of stock so that the customers wont waste time ordering it.

that would be very frustating & the kids probably didn't like it either. if i went to any place for something special & they didn't have it i would be very aggravated. i don't go out to eat very often & when i do i want to enjoy it. sorry u had such a time. greetings from tennessee.
