This post has nothing to do with the purpose of my blog, but I have this thought so I might as well get it out.
So, I went to McDonald's today and I asked how much the cheese burgers were (they weren't on the drive thru menu) and I was told that they were $1.12 each with tax... so I order 2. I get to the window and the cashier tells me me that m total is $2.25.. I say "don't you mean $2.24? They are $1.12 each right? Where does that other penny come from??" she said that she didn't know. So I'm not one to complain over a penny (a dime maybe) so I paid the the money...BUT it got me thinking....WHAT IF this is McDonalds way of ripping people off!!
According to their website, McDonalds serve 47 million people a day worldwide. If 10% of their customers order 2 cheese burgers a day at 1 penny more than it is supposed to be, then Mcdonalds will make $47,000 a day!!! Thats about $1,410,000 a month, $16,920,000 a year!!! and thats only from 10% of customers...Imagine if they were doing this with all the orders and not just 10%...they would make $169,200,000 a year...WOW! I think I may sue Mc.Donalds for all the times that they may have cheated me and for the mental anguish of just thinking about this.

The chandelier in my previous post was the genius creation of jewelry design team Erickson Beamon out of London. Appropriately called the "Glam Rock Chandelier" it is made from Japanese glass pearls and Swarovski crystals, and retails at $22.500. Here is a more detailed pic and other fabulous creations from Erickson Beamon.
