Please don't expect the fast food restaurants to be even similar to the stateside counterparts. I frequent Villa La Reine McDonalds because I work nearby. They have been out of chocolate and strawberry shakes, apple pie and cinnamon for oatmeal for months. The place is filthy. They burnt my english muffin and I knew it because I smelled the burnt bread through the bag before I even opened it. When I complained to the manager she said" I don't know the owner's name. They are off island. I don't know the owner's number. They are off island. I don't know when the owner will come back. They are off island. They are off island. They are off island..." I called corporate headquarters and they told me to call 340-773-3119 which is a DISCONNECTED number. I called corporate headquarters back and they said all they can do is give me the disconnected number. I WILL NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN!

I think maybe the problem for your frustration exists in the verbs you used: " expected" and "assumed"

I guess according to some you should have "assumed" and "expected" to be living in a third world country. Silly you.
Remember this when you see one of them complaining about something here. Can you say hypocrites?

I hit up some fast food joints in the states, and the service is not that much different than in St. Croix. You get what you pay for.

I do not believe that McDonalds are locally owned. I remember a guy named Cosmo Williams was the owner, but I think they are now owned and operated by a company named Arcos Dorados. Arcos Dorados is the largest operator of McDonald's restaurants in Latin America and the world's largest McDonald's franchisee.

Arcos Dorados serves 4.3 million customers at more than 1,940 Company-operated restaurants in 20 countries and territories (Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Ecuador, Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. Croix, Trinidad & Tobago, Uruguay and Venezuela).

I was referring to 'expecting service to improve' and 'assuming the items would return soon' -- nothing related to a third world, only the frustration that was expressed - I doubt I will ever feel like a hypocrite on this forum when I post a comment - and I rarely remonstrate criticism of my opinions.
