So I just got home from McDonald's. Yes, I occasionally take my children to the golden arches. I think I'm done with them now. I tried to email my complaint to the company, but an error kept occurring whenever I hit the submit button. So what's a girl to do?

I know. I'll post a copy of my email on my blog!
Here's the thing. I think long and hard before I hit the publish button on any post. It's nice to be able to think before I put something out there since my mouth is what gets me into trouble 99.9% of the time. (Wouldn't it be nice to have a "publish button" on our mouths?) But this is in my craw and it's not getting out until I get it off my chest.
So here it is:
RE: Inappropriate Happy Meal toy
I just returned from Store #xxxxx in xxxxx, FL where my daughter received a "Chelsea My Scene" doll in her Happy Meal.
This doll had a bare midriff and a ridiculously short skirt. If she weren't wearing roller skates and a helmet I would have sworn she was a "My Street Corner" doll.
Perhaps the helmet was your nod to safety, but I think more modest apparel would be a better service to the children you market to so aggressively.
I returned the doll to the cashier and was given bracelets in return. I commend the employee for his empathy.
However, I'll be giving my business to Chick-fil-A next time I'm looking for a quick, cheap lunch for my kids.
There. I feel better now.
