I won't be going back because of the way they made me feel.

I recently was at a McDonalds who was advertising Cheeseburgers for 39 cents. When I placed my order for 8 cheeseburgers without onions and pickles I was informed I had to pay the full price of 99 cents. I went there because of their special not because these are the best cheeseburgers in town. I have 4 children who do not like onions and find it difficult to take them off. I asked to see the manager and told him I thought it was a false advertisement. He told me that it would take too long to make the cheeseburgers the way I wanted them. I told him I was willing to wait. He gave me the cheeseburgers for 39 cents but told me he would not do this for me again. I live a few blocks away from McDonalds but I won't be going back because of the way they made me feel. I don't think it is right that they can advertise one thing and deliver another. If I had not spoke up for myself I would have had to pay the full price for the same product. I can't believe that McDonalds cooks their burgers all in the morning and then microwaves them for the customers as they arrive.
