The first thing I though of with the prompt high/low, is a cheeseburger. A double cheeseburger, to be exact.

You see, I used to work at a fast food restaurant, called Sandy’s. This was in Lawton OK, back in the early 70s. One of their menu items was called the Hi/Lo double cheeseburger. I know it’s spelled different from the prompt, but still sounds the same. These burgers were very good, and I’ve never found another one that has been the same.

Here’s the short, sad saga of my foray into the world of fast-food jobs. It was in the early 1970s, in Lawton OK, when I needed another job. I applied at McDonald’s and got hired right away to be a cashier. I had a uniform and everything. The day of my interview I specifically mentioned our plans of going out of town for Thanksgiving. I was told there would be no problem with that. I began work, and all was good. The job was just right for a part time job for me, and I enjoyed it. A week later, as the holiday approached, I mentioned that I would not be there for a couple of days, as we still had our going out of town plans. I was assured that this was fine with them, come back when we got back in town. So, off we went. On our return, I went in to my regular job schedule, only to be told I had no job after all. What? How could this be? Now what was I going to do? I really needed a job to earn some money.

I was in a state…what do I do now? I went on down the road to another fast-food restaurant to put in my application. This place was called Sandy’s. It was a lot like McDonald’s, but better. The menu was more interesting, and very good. I was hired immediately, so I didn’t have to come home with no job to my name. I worked at Sandy’s for quite a long time, until we moved to Germany. The boss, and the other employees were very nice and fun to work with. I was a cashier there, too. When a customer would come into the restaurant, we were all to say, with enthusiasm, “May I help you?” We loved doing that, and we’d make it into a contest to see which register station the customer would choose. As it was winter, we had some snowy days, and those days brought in the most customers, it seemed. I had a lot of fun working there. Later on, when we were back stateside, and were stationed at Ft. Sill, again, I was disappointed to learn that Sandy’s restaurant was no longer there. I found out it had been merged/taken over by a Hardee’s restaurant.

Even today I miss the food from the Sandy’s menu, and wish I had some more. They had a large burger called the Big Scott. It was similar to the Big Mac, but had shredded cabbage, and a sweet relish sauce that was oh so good. There was the hi-lo double cheeseburger, and a deep fried pork tenderloin on a bun, that was a favorite of mine.

Do any of you remember having a Sandy’s restaurant where you lived? 🙂
