From today for three days Burger King has a “Crazy Cowboy Offer”. It is served from 12 noon.
Now, I eat fast food less than once a year. The last time was in Singapore early last year, where it was late, and only McDonald’s was open. I wasn’t impressed. I had thought that I should try Burger King as perhaps it could be better. Well, now was my chance, with their RM1.88 offer!
I sidled up to the counter and asked for the Crazy Cowboy Offer.
“The RM1.88 burger, please.”
Now, I thought the idea of a promotion was to get new customers in, and so impress them that they come back, and even become regulars. Well, look at the contents…
I couldn’t finish it. I really don’t know what the point of this is. Mrs. Tropical Expat more or less implied, “I told you so.” And, by the time they add tax, it is RM1.99 – so they take the liberty of collecting RM2. This has put me off fast food burgers for years. I’ll see how I feel in 2015.
