Wendy's have an offer on their drive through board that says "Double the beef just add 89c". Now for most humans that have a basic comprehension of the English language and math, you would simply multiply the number of pattys by 2. When Ryan tried to double the beef on his Triple Classic though, all sorts of trouble ensued! Fight on my Supersized brothers, fight on!
The first major battle in my second war with Wendy's was fought yesterday. Megan Kennedy, Andrea Grant, and Mike Lilly backed me up as we took on the manager of the Wendy's on the corner of Pensacola and Ocala [map]. You see, it all began a couple of weeks ago when I was ordering at the "pick-up window." I noticed the line, "Double the Beef just add 89¢" [see image below]. Though I am not as well versed in the technicalities of English grammar as I would like to be (or as I have led some to believe), I do know that "double the beef" means no more and no less than twice as much beef. It was clear that if I bought a Classic Single and choose to double the beef for a mere 89 cents, I would have two patties. But what about invoking the "double the beef" offer for the Classic Triple?
