Open Letter To The (Stuck-Up) Woman At The School Gates…

November 24, 2020

November 24, 2020

I got one of those looks at school yesterday…

I think it was something I said, that caused the icy glare from one particular mum…  

Something to do with me promising to take Barney to McDonald’s as be bounded out of class and into my arms.

A sideways glance from one of Middle England’s finest that in my head said:

“You’re a bad parent.  I’d never take my precious child to McDonald’s and fill them full of junk and employ calories. You’re the worst kind of irresponsible man who is a plague on our national health system and to blame for the obesity epidemic in kids. Shame on you. I’d never step foot inside McDonald’s – we dine at pizza express…”

… followed by a “tut”…

Now, truth is, the glance I can live with, BUT the “tut” really pissed me off – so I hit google to do a fact check.

And here are the numbers:

McDonald’s Happy Meal – Chicken Nuggets:

  • Calories 173 
  • Fat 8.9g
  • saturated fat 1.2g

Pizza Express Piccolo Pizza Margherita

  • Calories 448
  • Fat 11g 
  • Saturated fat 6.6g

That’s right Barney’s chicken nugget meal has 50% less calories and 6x less saturated fat…

Who’s the shitty parent, now then, Mrs Middle England?!?!

Anyway, it only goes to prove to One Man Empire Iron Law #57:

Facts Will Always Trump Opinion.

… On that note, there are 3 facts that every self-made man worth his sole should know inside out and month on month for his empire…

  1. Cost Per Sale – how much did it cost to make a sale
  2. Customer Value – how much did a customer spend
  3. Profit – how much money was made

Any other gauge around performance is deluded opinion at best and dumb fuckery at worst.
