Reasons for trip

The summer holidays have begun along with increased grandchild care. How to keep them occupied? I had the brilliant idea of buying a child’s rover bus ticket covering the Scunthope area. Number 1 grandchild loves anything that moves on wheels. We went to the museum for their dinosaur activities (disappointing) and went for a couple of bus rides. We came home the long way via Morrisons. Bad move as I had forgotten there is a McDonalds in their car park. It was coming up to lunch time and Grandson decided he was dying of starvation and really need chicken nugget and chips to keep him alive.

It must be thirty years since I last went into a McDonalds and it doesn’t seem to have improved. The lack of a menu rather threw me and the assorted deals displayed above the service counter were confusing. I ordered the children’s chicken nugget and chips and a cheeseburger for me. The woman serving must have misheard me as when I opened the box it was a chicken burger. This contained a bit of rather sad pieces of iceberg lettuce and a dollop of mayonnaise which squelched out everywhere. The bun didn’t taste of much either…. Grandson demolished his meal and then proceeded to demolish my chips too. He seemed please with his ‘toy’ which came in his box and really enjoyed collecting his tomato sauce from the dispenser in a small cup.

Fortunately it was fairly quiet when we arrived and I was surprised there were quite a few adults eating. It got quite busy later and the queue was slow moving.

I like the fact that food is freshly cooked and hot. I did not like the lack of cutlery and having to eat out of a cardboard box, but I suppose that is part of the attraction.

Fortunately it is shutting for a much needed refurbishment for the rest of the summer holidays, so I won’t have to repeat the experience again just yet.
