Upselling

I really dislike the concept of upwelling. For example, I just went through the drive-thru at mcdonalds. I placed a very specific order. The response came back asking me if I wanted to add hashbrowns and make my order a meal. No. Frankly the choice I made is already enough of a meal for me. I’ve actually had to argue this with people before. “bit sir the meal is two cents cheaper”. “yes perhaps but I do not want the hashbrowns.” “you can always throw them away sir “. “or you could just ring up the order I actually placed….”

I don’t know why the practice really bugs me, but it does.
