Love with a Side of Fries
Fifty years ago, then 16-year-old Steve Rydberg was working at a local
McDonald’s. Since he worked at the grill, his co-workers developed a code
to let him know whenever a cute girl walked in the restaurant.
Here’s a wonderful story of how Steve met his true love back then and
how he surprised his wife on her birthday fifty years later at the same
… back by the grill, Steve and his coworkers had a problem. How
were they to know when a pretty girl was approaching the counter? Their
solution: a code that could be passed between the boys working the counter
and the boys manning the grill in the back. They chose the number "13"
as the tip off, followed by the register number where the young lass
"’13 on six, 13 on five,’ and we mixed it in, like, ‘I need
12 burgers on a 13 on two,’" laughed Steve.
Then, one day, in walked 16-year-old Kristine Hess, Steve’s perfect
13. "I thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world."
