"In the fall of 2008, when I was 11 years old, I wrote to the CEO of
McDonald’s and asked him to change the way his stores sold Happy Meals."

Good to see some change here.

hehe nothing has changed. i was at maccas the other day and the person in front
had ordered a happy meal and the person serving them asked "boy or girl? " i
saw another one didn't even ask just shoved in what they thought was best.

Yeah, it's not so easy to change staff behaviour.  It helps if customers
continue to make it an issue, though.  Especially now they know that it's
supposed to be company policy!
