It's just a shame...

Last night, I washed a ton of dishes and made a delicious dinner. Jed went kayaking with a friend, and overall, it was a great night! All day I had been craving a sweet treat and so I begged Jed to take me out for ice cream. Finally, at 10pm I convinced him too (this is like a daily occurrence. the begging, not the receiving).
So, while we were driving, I was debating. Malt Shoppe, or Sonic. I knew if I went to the Malt Shoppe I would get a rootbeer float, and I wanted something frozen, and I don't like the Malt Shoppe's Malts or shakes. So I chose Sonic. I finally decided on my old favorite. A Strawberry Limeade creamslush/flurry/freezer thing (they change the name like every second). Large.

So next thing I know, this little boy has skated out to us and handed Jed a drink that is OBVIOUSLY not frozen. It is all jiggly.. ya know? Like Water? He mumbles something about the ice cream machine not working, and I'm like... why didn't you tell is this when we ordered. He answered by saying "It JUST happened.".... like you couldn't even tell me.

and at that moment I was furious. FURIOUS people... what is my problem? I was so mad that this chance to have something was RUINED, and it's hard enough convincing Jed to take me out for a sweet treat (if it weren't for him, i would be even fatter than I am).

It kind of ruined my night. I just put it in the freezer and stayed up until midnight just so I could eat it frozen.

Am I a freak?

(p.s. this is not the first time I have gone to Sonic when their ice cream machine is broken. I vow never to go again)

Don't even worry that the same thing happened to me when I wanted ice cream. I don't go to sonic anymore either. Sorry girl!

I have the same problem with Sonic here in Arizona! I've gone twice within the last month and the ice cream machine was "broken" both times! Its crazy! Needless to say, I've lost my faith in Sonic.

personally i don't like sonic at all. the rule is if james wants to go to sonic he goes without me haha. (i got food poisoning once). Anyways I like you. I would have been way bummed too!

Wheni worked at mcdonalds, they would sometimes "break" the milkshake machine... so we didn't have to use it anymore...

The same thing happened to me at one of the Sonics here in Arkansas. I complained and got my money back and then I went home and stuck it in the freezer. luckily, the one that we live closest too is more reliable.
