The Schwartz's vs the Shamrock Shake

Dear McDonalds,

You know I love you.  You know I have an unquenchable addiction to your salty french fries and delicious chicken mcnuggets (with sweet and sour sauce of course).  You remember when I was near the end of my pregnancy and I wasn't really craving you but I figured I was as big as a house so what the heck and I begged Chris to go and get you at least twice a week.  In fact, one day I had you for lunch and dinner when I was getting near the end.  You and me, we go way back.

So why McDonalds?  Why have you forsaken me?  Why do you release my happy childhood memories to limited areas instead of allowing the whole world to enjoy your seasonal and delicious shamrock shake?  Do you hate me?  Are you like a horrible parent that favors one child more than another?  Because I'm beginning to think so.  For the second year in a row now, my brother who lives in Cincinnati, OH has posted and texted about how he is enjoying a glorious Shamrock Shake which prompts me to drive straight to the closest McDonalds to order one only to be greeted by a 15 year old who has no idea what I'm talking about.  See, you are not only abandoning me, but neglecting a whole new generation.  SHE HAD NO IDEA WHAT A SHAMROCK SHAKE WAS!!!!!!!!!

So McDonalds, I'm sorry to say this, and it hurts me more than it hurts you and your over 1 Billion served, but I think it's time we went our separate ways.  I've been thinking about the "d" word recently and well, your blatant favoritism of the people up north has pushed me over the edge.  It also doesn't hurt that we here in Millington, TN have finally upped our status enough to get a Chick-fil-a.

This is good bye, that is until you meet my demands of adding the Shamrock Shake to the Memphis area.  That's right, you don't even have to put it up here in Millington or Atoka...I'll drive 30-40 minutes to go to town to get one.  But until then, this is day 1 of my McD's free life style.

(Or unless I get pregnant again...then all bets are off and it's Chicken McNuggets and Chinese food all the way.)  But seriously...I want a Shamrock Shake.


P.S.  You suck!


  1. Bring us the Shake!

    Bring us the Shake!

    Bring us the Shake!

    Bring us the Shake!

  2. You are awesome! I just started College at the U of M, I previously lived in Pennsylvania, where they had Shamrock Shakes EVERYWHERE! So I googled "Shamrock Shake Memphis" and stumbled across this blog post. Very entertaining sums up my feelings exactly (except for the pregnancy aspect because I've never been pregnant :P)

    That anonymous 17 year old who DOES know what a Shamrock shake is!
