1/31 #SOL20 McDonald's Mail
Random thoughts on this first Slice Sunday of the month of March...
In an effort to rest my knee, which probably has a torn meniscus, I spent much of the day on the couch. Thankfully it was a sunny, but chilly day outside, and my kids got to spend some time soaking up some much needed Vitamin D. But the mommy guilt kicked in and I promised to take them out for something "fun."
We ended up at McDonald's. I could sit in one spot while they had a chance to play on the play structure after some oh-so-healthy Happy Meals really did make them happy.
As we were circling the parking lot twice to try to find a parking spot (apparently I wasn't the only one with this Sunday afternoon idea), I noticed a black mailbox in a cement chunk sitting by itself on one side of the parking lot. I had never noticed that before.

Then I started thinking about what kind of mail they get. Like does Chick-fil-a or Wendy's send them their coupon pages? Or do they get an abundance of realtor flyers or oil change coupons in their mailbox too? How about debt consolidation fake checks? Or maybe they get cards from kids and families around the holidays? Does McDonald's throw out the same amount of junk mail that we do every day at our house?
And which employee gets to be the one to peek in the mailbox each day? Do they fight over who gets to do that? Do they get excited when they flip through the McDonald's mail pile?
How many times does McDonald's get the next door neighbor, Walmart's mail? (Mental note...check for Walmart mailbox next time you are driving through that parking lot.)
I feel like I should write McDonald's a letter. After all, everybody loves to get mail.
And now I know they have a mailbox!

Today, March 5, is a day to remember. Actually, it's not that this day is one to remember, it's that certain little things happen...
