A Night In The Future

I had a long day yesterday, as I had to start early in order to get my day job items finished by noon, so I could use the rest of the day on another project. That project took me out of the house and on the road until late in the evening. By the time I got home and settled in it was near bedtime. That also meant I had no time to eat along the way, so by the time I was making the trip home I was starving. The last thing I wanted to do was cook, so I decided to stop at a fast-food place.

The first stop was McDonald’s, which is probably the default for most people around the world when you need food in a pinch. The food is not terrible tasting, a bit nostalgic for most Americans, but it is always the same. Outside of the rare exceptions, the burger from the McDonald’s in Europe is going to taste the same as one from Asia, which will be the same as one from Idaho. I was not hankering for a Big Mac, but I had to eat something and that seemed like an easy option.

The drive through had about four or five cars in it when I arrived. Ten minutes later there were a few more cars and I had not moved an inch. Then more cars and then finally the line started to move. It was one of those deals with two ordering lanes and one pay and get your food lane. I question whether this is any better in terms of speed of processing, but it does let them stack up more cars. This last bit is something that is becoming a feature of fast food – waiting for your food.

I get to the order spot and a saucy sassy diverse female voice flippantly asks me what I want, like I just rolled up to her crib, as the locals put it. I asked for the number seven, which is two cheeseburgers, fries, and a drink. McDonald’s no longer has a small, so the small is now a medium. We had a minor debate about my demand for medium as she kept saying large. At least that is what I thought as it sounded like she was at a house party rather than the drive up window.

I am fifteen minutes into this by the time I creep up to the first window, where I expected to pay nine dollars for what used to be on the dollar menu. There is no one there, but the car in front of me is in loud negotiations with the person handing bags of food, so I just sit waiting. A young urban youth appears at the window and begins doing a funky dance for some reason. He is twirling and spinning, while he laughs and talks to someone off screen. He then leaves the scene.

Finally, I pull up to the second window, expecting to pay, but a sassy female who sort of looked like Grimace, if he had been in the sun too long, tells me that I need to pay funky dance guy in the previous window. I told her there was no one there, so she left, and I think she went to yell at him. She comes back and tells me funky dance man is back in his window. I think she expected me to get out and walk back to pay him, as she just stared at me, but I drove off instead.

Next up was a Wendy’s a block away. It has been a long time since I visited with Dave as I do not have fast food very often. When I was on the road all the time, Wendy’s was a preferred stop of the conventional chains. Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Burger King were my order of preference if I had to choose. That was long ago and now I avoid this stuff for the most part. They have added things since my last time. The big special item was what looked like nachos between two trashcan lids.

After a ten-minute wait, a sassy diverse female demanded to know why I was bothering them, and I told her I wanted a double burger meal. I noted that the prices were a bit better than McDonald’s. The double burger meal was $7.49. The big garish looking things were all over ten bucks. I get to the window, and I am told by the man in every ad now that I owed them $11.49. I told him the sign says $7.49 and he told me he did not give a bleep; the meal is $11.49. I drove off.

At this point I was thinking that maybe Uncle Ted was right all along. I am not talking about industrial society and its future. I am not even thinking about the letter bombing campaign, at least not now. He may have been onto something with the off grid living business, despite the compromises on hygiene. At these moments, I can understand why so many white guys still think Ayn Rand speaks to their soul. At least they would never have to see another funky dance.

I have written often about what happens when you try to run a technological society with lots of low-IQ people. Anyone who has spent time in South America or California has glimpsed the future. Even simple things become increasingly inefficient and then people seek to work around the bottlenecks, which adds to the inefficiency. In South America they have an expression called “the Latin way” which means lots of people buzzing about looking busy, but not accomplishing much.

If you add in an aggressively hostile and entitled population to the mix, it is hard to see how we keep the plates spinning. Fast food places keep going mostly on inertia, as they have been a part of the culture for generations. At some point, they either get automated or people abandon them. In other words, in order to maintain the technological society, it will mean masses of unemployed, aggressively hostile and entitled people looking for something to do.

One final thought. The 1990’s action flick Demolition Man probably had the near future about right when they imagined a world run by managerial silly people attempting to control a population of troublemakers. That is where our rulers think this is heading, except they are smart enough to keep a lid on things. The beautiful people and their attendants will manage a giant outdoor penal colony. Maybe they are right, but they best not expect to get a fast-food meal late at night.

Walked to the local sub shop yesterday. The punjabi behind the counter vigorously rubbed his beard with both hands, coating them with oil, dander and crumbs or whatever. Without washing he put on one vinyl food service glove and smacked it with his ungloved hand to work his dirty fingers inside. This contaminated the vinyl surface with beard residue.

My jaw dropped, I turned and fled. Went to the nearest Foxtrot. Never going back to the sub shop.

Well, since everything is called “fascism”, it just doesn’t mean anything anymore. Being for families and community can be called fascist. So can having a work ethic.

But none of that implies national socialism. Our problems are racial and fascism isn’t necessarily that good on race. As someone said, all you need to be a good fascist is a stiff right arm.

Also, we’ve learned new things about economics and politics in the last 100 years. By the way, tons of guys have done the national socialism thing over the last 50 years. They all flame out.

I had a similar experience on Saturday. My son and his HS band were out of town for a band competition. The band rode a charter bus, and parents traveled to and from the event on our own. The award ceremony ended at a late hour in the evening, which projected us getting back home by around 10:30 I got a head start on the busses and left around 7:30, planning on stopping along the way to grab a bite. I pulled off at an interstate exit with a McDonalds, a Burger King, and a convenient store. I sat behind… Read more »

sort of a sidebar but while everyone has heard of the sidney poitier archetype there is a lesser known archetype that predated him. That archetype being the sort of goofy friendly and harmless black guy – think of Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Uncle Remus etc.

To the extent we have them in our society, we need the blacks working fast food to be of that archetype – kind of the pullman porter with the bow tie.

Some blacks I worked with in the 90’s bragged about spitting in people’s food at the fast food places they worked at. They claimed they did to unruly customers but knowing the people I worked with, it probably was for the majority of white customers. I stopped eating fast food after that.

While on duty, and in uniform, I had a pavement ape hoc a lugi in my Chipotle burrito bowl. I went to the bathroom after ordering, and did a double take to add to my order. Caught him right in the act.

I arrested him for attempt heinous battery, and the SA refused to approve charges.

After that, I sat in the parking lot and warned people that were coming in. They were gone within a month.

Am I imagining this or is there a website that advises on places to patronize and places to avoid based on the demographics of that joint’s typical customer? If not, there needs to be one; a TripAdvisor for the pale faces.

Conversely, if there were certain catch phrases that we could use to leave in the comments of the existing TripAdvisor it would throw sand in their gears as they would be forced to constantly fight against their inclusion. Kind of like the way school administrators have to comb through student pictures to find any “OK” signs being flashed.

I was just thinking a bit more about this at the gym. Websites would probably employ algorithms to automatically delete certain terms, words, and phrases so they would have to be couched in language that wouldn’t seem out of place. For instance, something like writing “the menu was confusing” at a restaurant or “there was too much chlorine in the pool” at a hotel could act as a warning that the wait or desk staff is diverse.

After shoeing them away by telling them you have no money, you can’t even whip out the credit card and get the gas because phony readers are now a regular feature of pay at the pump gas stations.

Since we’re speaking of the future, I’d like to moot something as a possibility. Not a prediction, not a desire, but just a hypothetical that helps to flesh out the thought-space. How would you feel if you were coopted by the imperial ministers of culture? I mean, what if the Dissident Right ended up getting 75-90% of everything they wanted, but if it was all implemented by people whom you formerly considered to be your ideological enemies, and for reasons that you didn’t agree with?

Here in Germany, McDonalds and KFC have become quite popular with the younger crowd. To be honest, the ones in France area actually better, but as you said, they all taste pretty much the same. I noticed about 10 years ago, at the same time diversity hires were becoming more common, electronic order kiosks were starting to appear and ordering and paying at the counter with cash disappeared entirely. We are now seeing more and more of these kiosks appear here in Germany at about the same rate where ever diversity is starting to spread. Was the timing of these… Read more »

Yes, Subway, the place pitched by the skinny fat child molester.

Taught me the value of ‘defensive’ sammich customer-ness. See, the bright, bright persons they had working there would have to be supervised by you. As they made your sandwich. They would just as soon toss a tomato slice on with a core the size and thickness of a dime than not.

So, pointing, “please remove that one. That one, there, no core. I don’t want to ingest wood, thanks.”

Eventually problem was solved by bailing on the fast food thing altogether.

It’s funny, I remember back in college 15 years ago Subway was pretty good and I liked eating there because the veggies were fresh. Since then it’s always dead lettuce and transparent cucumbers and tomatoes that clearly were frozen. And way too expensive for what you’re getting, I can get the ingredients for several hoagies for the price of one fast food sandwich.

Hollywood has been making dystopian movies for a long time now, and many depict a world in which Cloud People rule over the Untermenschen locked into violent cauldrons of collapsed former cities. But none of that is what the models predict, nor does the collapse necessarily end in that scenario.

If you have to do fast food, go to Chik-Fil-A. The ownership are Christians so I think they hire mostly from church youth. The people who work there are very polite and not particularly diverse. They are also very efficient and you get your food quickly and it is hot.

Chick-fil-a being Christian is exactly what’s wrong with it.

I gave up eating at McDonalds in the states 50 years ago, when I first tasted Indian food at age 18. An employee friend telling me stories of employees adding phlegm to the hamburger buns also helped to dissuade me. A few times since then in the 80’s and 90’s I had eaten at Mcdonalds in Japan and France, where different local options were available. In the states, a stop at a grocery store for sardines and fresh vegetables. Today with rare exceptions I prefer to avoid the seed oils used in most prepared, restaurant and fast food by cooking… Read more »

The food service industry is absolutely riddled with drug use and abuse, which is not surprising because most of the workers are itinerant and are so poorly paid that they self-medicate with drugs. Most of the staff in urban fast food places are at least mildly high at work, which explains some of their surliness. Even in mid-tier places most of the staff are buzzed at work, especially on the night shift. Many of them work a day job and a night job to make ends meet and a little bump or two keeps them going at night. Don’t judge… Read more »

Blacks who immigrated from Africa are usually much nicer to deal with than the local stock. Blacks in Africa are usually nicer to deal with. Of course avoid the obvious safety pitfalls, but they are more friendly, smiling, no chip on the shoulder. I also enjoy interacting with Indians in India. Friendly, nice, hospitable. In the US not so much. There is something our culture is teaching them that is profoundly bad. Our own traitors to the left are teaching them to hate whites and to feel entitled

With respect, you are incorrect. The statements in my comment have been true for at least thirty years. This is the dirty little secret of the food service world. In many restaurants everyone from the head chef down to the bus staff are lit up on coke at work, especially at night. In their defense, they work brutal hours and self-medicate to stay awake, alert, and to mask some of the physical pain of being on their feet all day an night.

This is something that I personally experienced at a local McDonalds: I drove through for breakfast and ordered a Sausage Biscuit with Egg. The order taker asked “How you want your egg?” (that’s exactly what she said) I said “On the sausage biscuit” – this caused some confusion as she turned to talk to coworkers apparently trying to figure it out. The another person said “We don’t have that — do you want a Sausage Egg Biscuit?” I said “What’s the difference between the two?” “The Sausage Egg Biscuit comes with egg on it.” I said that would be fine.… Read more »

One thing I haven’t heard anybody address about a cashless society is the casinos. And the casino owners happen to have lots of political pull. Enough pull that they are able to defy the 21st century and still allow smoking inside. So how are you going to get the casinos to go cashless? I don’t think they can.

This is just one of many problems with going full CBDC that the eggheads who dream of their new techno world seem to overlook.

I think Horton’s was bought by Burger King about eight years back. I don’t know if and how this has affected the service and product.

Nine irons, mostly, but with a smattering of blacks. They tend to be on the mops and machines but are kept away from the customers for the most part.

Z-man, Absolutely no intent to be rude, but I wonder if some of your irascibility is also due to age. I’m about the same age as you from what I can tell and I find myself having more and more of these walking out moments every day. Ususally it isn’t even due to the staff. I’ll walk into some fast food joint and end up in line behind some dude and his seven kids or old folks with all the time in the world and they’ll all be going on about “Do you want this? Do you like that? How… Read more »

Aye. I’m also in my fifties and I know exactly of what you speak. White men of our age grew up with normal boyhood lives, free to be reckless and aggressive when we wished. But we have now suffered under the yoke a feminized world for three decades and our fatigue with it all is crushing.

I gave up on fast food long long ago. It is generally disgusting, period. One either gets that or does not. It literally is a matter of taste. I started doing serious barbell training in my mid-fifties and along with that discovered that I needed a LOT of protein, and could not expect my poor wife to do all that constant cooking. I learned a hell of a lot more about cooking than I ever knew. I am no gourmet or chef, but I make stuff that I love the taste of, and is good for me. And the funny… Read more »

I too have reached that age where I am realizing that time is not infinite. This year I have given away dozens of books that I bought in the past and feel that I will not have time to read. I can’t believe my golden years are likely to be spent in a collapsing USA.

Not to get too pensive here, but the thing that’s been bringing me down lately is the thought that my grand-daughter won’t grow up in a free country. I’m putting my hope now in the fact that my wife grew up in a totalitarian society, so she knows better how to navigate the political waves and help us all out. Still have to wonder though whether our current ruling junta will do everything they can to get our grand-daughter to rat us out in some way and we won’t be able to see her again.

Heh. There’s certainly some truth in this. I’m also of an age with Z, and it seems with every passing month I become more irritable and intolerant, at least with the general public. But is that a function of aging, the grumpy old man syndrome, or is it because people in general are becoming more objectively insufferable? Probably a bit of both. Funny though–I used to berate myself for being too intolerant. Now I can’t be bothered to give a ruddy shit.

Yep. Can totally relate to this. Life is too short. I’m fortunate enough to live in a locale (HK) where mean native IQ is 105 and people are mostly *quick*-witted and -actioned, plus decisive, and don’t believe in unnecessary extraneous jibber-jabber when transacting business. The downside is that my cortisol starts to spike if the elevator door doesn’t open the first time I jab at the button (the Hong Kong solution to this is to maniacally keep jabbing at the button).

Fast food is pretty vile these days. Inside the restaurants it is disgusting, with garbage, filth and mud everywhere. Service is quite poor, the cashier is almost always an Indian. They seem either resentful at being in this position or desperate for cash. The food itself is nasty, sloppy, and not fresh. Sometimes it’s stale, sometimes it’s cold. Sauces are thrown on in random quantities. No crunch. Finally, in Canada, Trudeau has banned plastic straws and forks so it’s very nasty to try and eat or drink anything with a cardboard & glue tube. For just a few dollars more… Read more »

Here is a rare article whereby Zman actually gets a little personal. It adds a nice touch. The only “fast” food that I ever get is the spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy’s. Mickey D’s is a definite no-go. Not only does their food suck, but the place is usually far busier than it ought to be given its low quality. The DIE-versity doesn’t help either. I have long considered McDonald’s to be a great pillar of American mediocrity. That it now has restaurants all over God’s green earth can’t do much for this so-called nation’s reputation.

But only outside the USA. A cursory glance at the toilets in most fast food franchises inside the USA will reveal something else. Another thing is that the quality of ingredients is generally superior outside the USA. Thus a Big Mac or Whopper will taste different and be more nutritious in Europe than in the USA. Food regulations are more stringent. In addition, your soda will have genuine sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup. It’s probably the case that fast food establishments in the USA are catering increasingly to the underclass, which among other things means more and more… Read more »

I don’t know about other countries, but McDonald’s in Japan fools the Japanese into thinking McDonald’s is pretty good. The menu’s a little better—basically our childhood McDonald’s with a couple weird local additions—and preparation is autistically correct. The strongest single moment of culture shock they’re likely to experience if they visit America is unwrapping the real thing and finding a murder scene.

I have a two-hour commute (only go to the office four days per week unless I have to head to Texas or South Carolina for work) by choice because of the encroaching diversity in the Atlanta metro area. Up in the mountains where we live, all of the fast food chains in the closest town are staffed with white kids who are polite and get your order right every time. I don’t have to worry about carrying an insane amount of weaponry every time I go out. A few months ago, I went to a Chipotle and the sassy, diverse… Read more »

As a connoisseur of cheap motels I can tell you, the google reviews, usually the top half dozen comments or so is all you need to read, will steer you in the right direction and warn you off of the really bad ones. I learned this lesson the hard way, but since I started doing it I have not been surprised or disappointed. And it has led me to some $70-$80 a night places that were as good as places that charge twice that much.

I think we do need to make English the official language of all public interaction. That is to say, all forms, all signage, all official communication, all business communication, all school instruction (with the exception of foreign language immersion academies) must be exclusively in English. You may speak whatever language you want at home, but if it’s in public it must be English.

That would go a long way to eliminating the mutual unintelligibility that makes modern life so unnecessarily complex.

Reading the comments today has given me a chuckle or two. My two cents; Never eat at a fast food place. The comments are correct, rural is best, but you can get a loaf of bread and a package of meat for the same or less, and have stuff left over for tomorrow. Never let a jogger handle your food. My wife and I will leave a restaurant if so much as a jogger gives us our water. Nothing good ever comes from dealing with them.

Z, to begin, I read this and thought “If he was stopping anywhere near Lagos, he’s lucky he didn’t get shot in the drive-thru.” 😬 The first stop was McDonald’s, which is probably the default for most people around the world when you need food in a pinch. The food is not terrible tasting, a bit nostalgic for most Americans, but it is always the same. I beg to differ. The last time I went to Mickey D’s and had a Big Mac, I contemplated if putting salt, mustard, and catsup on the carboard box it came in would taste… Read more »

Z-Man, I have to wonder if you’re not courting some of this stuff, or unconsciously provoking it, and/or filtering your perceptions through a template designed to cast things in the worst possible light. I live in a lily-white exurb but I commute to work straight into the heart of a Great Lakes-area Rust Belt town with a 30% black population. I also eat fast food from time to time (more than I should, to be honest), and I have had a few bad experiences as well. However, I’ve found that they can be pretty effectively mitigated with a little effort.… Read more »

Using the chain’s app is the only way I order now when buying at McDonalds or Wendys. Not only does it let you cut down on the amount of interactions you have and somewhat lessen the odds of a mistaken order, it also helps you save a few bucks.

Mickey D’s? You’re just asking for trouble (and spittle or worse in your burger if you are White). Doing drive-thru is the double dog dare. I don’t go anywhere they hire dindus, especially if prepared food is involved. Luckily, down here in South Texas, we have infinite choices of great Mexican places. The food is almost always hot, cheap, and, where authentic (i.e. staffed by border-jumpers) served with a shy Latina smile when you make eye contact and smile back. Can’t beat it.
