#3 Son, our college boy, a young man who, for various and sundry reasons does not drive, asked me if I would take him to McDonald's.
I said, "Sure."
We got in the car, drove through the rain to the drive-thru, ordered his 'usual', and then drove around to the 'first window'.
Where you pay.
#3 Son squirmed around in his seat and pulled a buck here and change there, but not the required amount.
"Uh, I don't have $4.63, Dad."
So, I pulled money out of MY pocket to pay for my adult, 20 year old son's meal.
The only real problem here is that this isn't the first time he's done this to me.
I expect it won't be the last.
But, at least next time, I'll ask him if he has the money BEFORE we leave the house - because when I'm sitting around in my underwear and it's suddenly necessary to throw on some pants in order to leave the house (because .. you know ... I'm so modest), there's no guarantee that I'm gonna have any money (or anything else, for that matter) in my pockets.
Can you wash dishes at McDonald's?
