McDonalds has vaunted fries? I'm not sure we live in the same universe.

Well, *I* don't like them. But whenever the topic of McDonald's comes up and I mention how atrocious it is, people always say, "...they have good fries, though."

You know who has good fries? Good Times. Too bad they don't exist in Utah (they're a Colorado thing, but they seem to be spreading).

Jack in the box has pretty good fries.  Strangely, I miss the old processed potato sticks that Carl's Jr. used to have.

People like McDonald's fries because they have sugar on them...

BK fries for me.  9 times out of 10 McD fries nearly kill me.

And 5-guys fries are pretty good too.  Like the fact that they're "real"  potatoes.  Just went there for the first time last friday and was pretty impressed.  A bit expensive for a fast food joint (thought it was a sit-down place at first with menus and such, before I got corrected by a friend early last week) but on the whole, I think it was a good experience.  I'd go back anyhow.

I like McD.'s milkshakes and fries; but I've only had them 3 or 4 times in my life (fortunately).

Really my favorite burger has got to be Steak-n-shake.  They have great malts too.  Just wish they'd cross The Great Divide.

Eugh. I don't like Steak-n-Shake at all. Very little meat and weird stringy fries. Last time I ate there was while my keys were locked in the car 60 miles from home and I was waiting for the AAA guy to arrive. Also, I had just gotten a ticket for an illegal U-turn while trying to get out of a freeway entrance left-turn lane.

Plus I don't eat shakes, so...

So, the grumpy thread is for things that happened very recently.

You're going to have to take my word for it that that's the way it has been on this forum for the last four years. If you like, you can read from the beginning: http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?topic=486.0 All the posts are about very recent occurences, mostly what the poster is feeling right then. "If you're feeling grumpy, bitter, angry, whatever, post about it here."
