I know: it doesn’t seem fair.
All the kids in the other counties get a toy with their Happy Meal. But you live in Santa Clara County, and Santa Clara County says you aren’t allowed to have toys with your fast food.
This is important. After all, some foods aren’t good for you if eaten in excess, and someone has to be there to tell you to stop. Who else is going to to that? Your parents? With kid’s meal toys out of the picture, there’s nothing that draws kids into these fast food restaurants. Well, other than the fact that the food tastes really good to a kid.
Those other counties may seem “way cooler” now, but wait a few years and you’ll see that Santa Clara County really did know what was best for you all along.
(Unless you run a fast food franchise close to one of Santa Clara’s county borders and are looking to get any business on a Saturday afternoon. Then you’re screwed.)
