The Running Commentary


McDonalds Suggestive Selling!!

mcd noticeI could not resist taking a picture (sorry that the clarity is not great) of this notice in McDonalds (Kenilworth – South Africa). The notice reads: Suggestive Selling –If a customer orders a McMeal ALWAYS suggest a LARGE. You must NEVER suggest a SMALL and DON’T automatically ring up a small McMeal – Thank you Management (all emphasis as it appears on the notice)

Clearly they are in the business of keeping their clients large in order to ensure their business. I am not saying that they are the most socially responsible organisation, but to display this notice in the window of their driver through is really laying on a bit thick.

One of your LARGE clients, and now happily an ex client.

    Why happily an ex client? Just curious.

    A thought went through my mind as I was ordering the meal for my family, that I am actually doing a really poor thing. I am supporting an organistation that actaully is trying to oversell and keep me unhealthy.
