I went to McDonald's after Mardi Gras before I went to work and almost had a fit when I discovered that the sausage mcmuffin went from $1 to $1.19 and the cashier told me that it went up after we had Mardi Gras and it's no longer on the dollar menu. Then today, I went to get something for lunch, and looking at the menu, I've discovered that the big kids meal is now $5.00. Uh, I guess I won't be taking the kids to McDonald's at those prices, hell I can go to a real restaurant for that price and get good food or just cook at home. I've watched how fast food restaurants have priced themselves out. Please note that I am not picking on McDonald's, I just haven't been to the others because they are not near me. But I can tell you that fast foods are going to lose.
