The Bus Terminal Known As McDonalds

MI stopped for a quick lunch at this McDonalds at the corner of University and Shattuck in Berkeley. It’s one of the more recently remodeled stores but the clientele hasn’t changed at all. Between the homeless and other regulars, I’m surprised this location makes any money at all. One after another, the street people walk in, rummage thru the trash cans and then bum food from real customers. 

Take for example this fellow, I don’t have a clue what he has gone thru in his life but it appears he’s made some bad life choices. He was just fine when he was sound asleep. An employee woke him up and he began to yell and scream that the world is unfair. The world may be unfair but don’t start screaming out in a McDonalds, it doesn’t help. 

The 8 dollar an hour manager came out to quiet him down but that only made things worse, another man with anger problems walked up to the manager and began to denounce her efforts. She backed off and went to call the police. I sat there for a few minutes and no one showed up, another day in paradise. This too will pass
