On my way home from cat-sitting yesterday I had a craving for McDonald’s ice cream sundae. There is one fairly close to my house and so I ventured a bit off my usual route home to stop by and get what I wanted. When I arrived, I was informed that their soft-serve machine was broken. This McDonald’s could not reinforce the chain of behaviours (driving to, walking in, approaching the counter etc.) that often leads me to ice cream.
No worries. There is another one close by and damn it, I want ice cream!
I venture to the second location only to find out their cash registers are being re-set and that they are unable to serve me at this time.
Wow McDonald’s, you sure know how to a put a girl’s behaviour on extinction.
My behaviours did not work. I went home ice cream-less and had wine instead.
