I used to go to McD’s for coffee, headphones, and music to start the more creative bits of my workday. I miss the annoying regulars who are eligible for free coffee. I miss the annoying salespeople, getting their gameface on before heading to their first lies of the day. I miss the occasional getting-my-order-wrong moment and being too timid to speak up in some misguided effort to not upset someone’s day. I miss rolling my eyes at the same old shit being shown on the TVs. I miss not knowing that my family would rather have me at McDonald’s.
