Tried to play McDonalds Monopoly

I just tried to play McDonalds Monopoly. I don't usually eat there but I was and I saw the signage. Their grand prize of $50,000 a year sounded good to me. I could not find any game pieces among the things they gave me. I was cursing the workers under my breath. The McDonalds near my house seems to be a nexus of weird obstacles and problems. It turns out you have to eat certain things to get the game pieces and I hadn't. Really, I ate a Quarter Pounder. Isn't a normal McDonalds thing to eat? I hardly ever eat there or anything normal, so can't I at least get the prizes associated?

 

The fine red print on the bottom of the brown paper sack said no purchase necessary. They said you can send a #10 envelope with a stamped self addressed envelope to Ohio and they will send you two game pieces. The contest lasts less than a month. I believe that and I have #10 envelopes right on hand which I can differentiate between all other envelopes. Further, I don't think this is as simple as scratch and win. I think they have layers and layers for you to go through and that pisses me off. So much effort and striving and for what? Free french fries? Whatever happened to you enter and you win or you don't? That sounds about like the level of effort I want to go through when in a cholesterol induced semi-coma. Who dreamt up McDonalds Monopoly? I have to stop eating there. Even though I only ate sandwiches alone with no drink I gained weight.

 

I really wish there was a convenient place to get a burger and fries, but with quality ingredients, no transfats, no corn syrup, and healthy sides. Oven fries would be nice. Anything close to that here has stuff I don't like and may be passive aggressive. I wish there was an easy button. I could really use it right now.

 

I needed something easy for meals and I thought maybe more. I feel disappointed.
