Note: I am looking at some of older draft posts in my blog. I removed a few that just had a title there but no content. I saw this one, which looks half-done and was written close to 2 years ago, but I have no idea what I intended to write for the rest of the post. So here it is. In any event, a 32 ounce medium-sized drink bottle is something to behold! Large size drink holds around 42 ounces, which should be slightly more than 30% bigger than the one pictured below.
A couple of weeks ago, I was in a rush and ordered a spicy grilled chicken sandwich from Wendy’s. I was thirsty too, so I requested a medium drink. I normally don’t go to fast food stores like McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, and such. When I do, I normally just ask for a cup of tap water. I was really surprised when the guy from the drive-thru window passed me this cup of drink:
He must have seen the expression on my face. Before I said anything, he smiled and said: “Yup, that is a MEDIUM drink”
The gigantic bottle actually wouldn’t fit inside the cup holder of my Neon. This experience reminded me that when I was in Xiamen University in the early 90’s, we were all excited when McDonald’s opened its first store on ZhongShan Lu. In fact, well-educated university students worked fairly hard to get a part-time job there. I flipped burgers and mopped floors there for a couple of weeks, and even got brave enough to court a nice looking McDonald’s colleague, before she scared me away with some strange stories.
