Working from home

Working from home yesterday was great. I think I need to do it more often, if I can convince my boss to let me.
The new windows were installed in the house, except for the kitchen. The contractor ordered the wrong size. So that'll be done on Friday or Saturday. Every thing else is done. The house looks much better than it did. Now I can start on the landscaping in the front of the house.

After yesterday, I will never eat at a Burger King again, or at least not at the one by my house. I stopped there yesterday at noon to grab a quick lunch. After waiting in the drive-thru line, I attempt to place my order

BK - Hi, welcome to Burger King, would you like to try one of our combo meals today?
ME - I'd like a #1 with a coke.
BK - I'm sorry Sir, we are out of Whoppers right now
ME - How can a burger place be out of burgers at noon?
BK - I do not know Sir. We only have chicken available right now
ME - Ok, I'll have a crispy chicken sandwich, no mayo and no cheese
BK - and to drink?
ME - Coke
BK - Ok, your total is

I drive to the window, where I pay and receive my coke. 5 minutes later, the window opens and the girl asks for my money. I explain that I have already paid and said that I am waiting on my sandwich.
Another 5 minutes passes, and a guy opens the window and tells me to pull into the parking lot because the sandwich isnt ready yet. 10 minutes later it arrives. so much for a quick lunch.
