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…
- Cost Per Sale – how much did it cost to make a sale
- Customer Value – how much did a customer spend
- Profit – how much money was made
Any other gauge around performance is deluded opinion at best and dumb fuckery at worst.
Make More. Provide More. Be More.
