McDonalds is Dumb

Me: I'd like to order a kids meal with chicken nuggets and apple dippers.
Dumb Person: What would you like to drink?
Me: Can I just have a cup of water please? I understand if you have to charge me for the cup.
Dumb Person: We don't do that anymore.
Me: Excuse me?
DP: We only have bottled water now. That will be a $1.19 extra.
Me: What? Can't you charge me for the cup?
DP: No we don't do that anymore.
Me: Forget it then. I don't want the bottled water.
DP: Ok but we still have to charge you for the drink.
Me: Ok then. Just put water in it.
DP: We're not allowed to do that anymore..
Me: (seriously thinking this guy never graduated high school) Whatever, fine. Don't give me a drink.
DP: That will be $2.26
Me: (driving up to the 2nd window - a different person leans out)
DP2: We're going to go ahead and just give you the cup of water.
Me: Thanks, I appreciate it.
DP2: That will be $3.18.
Me: I thought you said it would be $2.26?
DP2: We're charging you for the water..
Me: (Hunter and I look at each other and laugh at the girl leaning out the window - I now purposely take my time counting out the exact change while shaking my head and hand it to the dumb person #2)

Driving away, I give Hunter a lecture on how important it is to stay in school.
