What McDonalds did was to train the dining out public to bus thier own tables. When this first occured in the late 1960’s I used to leave my tray on the table for an employee to take it away .I don’t work for them nor draw a salary from them I used to say.Just Like a trained circus animal the public soon learned what is exspected of them to do.Not only do we have to bring the food to the tables ourselves but bus as well.
Then their is the gas stations ,at one time the atttendant used to wash your windows,check your oil, check your tire presure and pump the gas for you..today they do squat.Mr.And Mrs Public now pumps their own gas.The Air Pumps at one time had bells stop ringing when the correct amount of dialed tire presure was achieved today it a a guessing game unlees you carry a tire gage.The gas stations do nothing anymore.You and I do not draw asalary from them either.In N.Y. State there is a little known law in that if you are a Senior Citizen or Diabled then the Gas Station must pum for you if you unable to do it yourself..fat chance,the attendant plays possum when you ring for them.
I’m a creature of habit,I remember White Castle Hamburgers had a car hop dressed in a bell hop style blue uniform they would come to your car..you’d roll down the window half way and they had a speacial tray that fit onto your window and you would eat in your car.When they stopped bell hop sevice for years I would still eat the white Castles in my car.It took years untill I dinned inside the resturnant.Not to long ago the Supermarkets had everone bag their own groceries..that I always refused to do.
What I’m trying to convay is the public is a bunch of Shmucks to let this happenThe public should have refused all this less service years ago..To Late now..Sorry
