    A grocery chain in the region where I live has the Monopoly game as well. I make it easy on myself by simply not playing. The game itself is nothing but a scam by the company. I refuse to eat at McDonald’s anymore because of its refusal to increase the employees’ hourly wages AND putting their paychecks on plastic cards. As for the grocery store, I don’t shop there simply because they have lousy sales and are uber-expensive compared to another grocery chain in the area.

    Yes when they caught that company that made the pieces kept all the good ones for themselves – i don’t run to mc d’s at any time – besides the rare times someone goes or it is the easiest place to go to in between work, chores- i have found it takes about 20-24 pieces before we get those fries and i hate the fries, plenty of franchises have not taken their own coupons, do do the promos or just screw up and corporate never , NEVER has even contacted me back to at least apologize. Chick fila , good food , reasonably quick but racist—they don’t hire white people for the kitchen , Neither Does Medieval Times – Try and get a job – I dare you,
