    So, you go to McDonalds... You want better service? How about helping us help you!

    If you have 6 kids in the car with you, find out what they want BEFORE you get in line and clog up my drive thru. You taking 5 minutes to order while there are 6 cars behind you just makes everything frantic. McDonalds has had basically the same menue since the 70s. Nothing is new, with the exception of the chicken sandwhiches, mcgriddles, and maybe the big `n tasty...

    When you pull up to our window, and we ask what we can get for you... DO NOT tell us to hold on while you yammer on into your cell phone for the next 2 minutes... Especially don't do that and just order a coke. Thats really annoying.

    McDonalds has NEVER had onion rings... So when you get up to the first window to pay, don't ask me if we have onion rings while you stuff your face with onion rings from Sonic. And really don't do this on a weekly basis. We hate you.

    Nope. No cheeze sticks either.

    Breakfast stops at 10:30. After that, we can only do hot cakes and cinnamon rolls. Deal with it.

    Our credit card machines have been down for 2 weeks now... I realize that not being able to go into debt for a cheeseburger is very inconvenient to you... But yelling at a minimum wage high schooler isn't going to fix it. You're an idiot for not even having $1.07 on you.

    Lets say your total is $8.57 or something... and you hand me a $10. When I've closed my drawer and am handing you your $1.43 is not only the wrong time, but the stupidest time to tell me you have the $.57. I can't open my drawer again... And no, throwing a fit won't change that.

    Don't let your kids order. I can't understand a word they say. This is especially true of foreigners... It is hard an enough to understand you're broken english over the traffic and other noises from outside. And if you're english is bad, how good is you're kid's? Nothing against you all... its just stupid.

    Hey, don't get mad at me when you order a #1 with a coke at 11:30 and instead of an egg mcmuffin and hashbrown, we give you a bigmac and fries. You're an hour late, putz. And no, its not my fault i didn't ask which one you meant... An hour after breakfast, most people have taken the hint.

    No, you can't short me $.10. I get written up, I lose my hours, I lose my job.

    There is a giant sign at the ordering station that says PLEASE ORDER HERE... So when we aren't at the window right away to take your order... calm down. You missed the spot, not me. The alarm alerting me of your presence didn't go off... You're fault. Not mine.

    Oh, we forgot your fries when you were here last month? You didn't call? You don't have a reciept? Well, that will be $2.15 for the fries you can't prove you bought.


    I think fast food employees seem dumb because they have to stoop down the the level of the typical customer.

    And, I need a new job.

    I find it mildly annoying when ppl take too long to look through a McD's menu at the drive thru. Like you said, they've offered the same things since the dawn of time.

    If you only have one person who speaks english working at your store, don't you think that the best place to put them would be taking orders on the drive thru?!?!?:mad:

    I think many of us could write a book about the idiots that work at most fast-food stores. The ones that don't speak english, the ones that can't count, the ones that are too busy talking to take my order, the ones that lick the salt off their finger and THEN handle my food.....

    Shall I go on? Do you really want to do the fast food worker vs. fast food patron thing?

    When I order a plain hamburger, do not ask if I want cheese on it. If I wanted cheese, I'd have ordered a cheeseburger.

    My fries don't belong all over the bottom of the bag.

    Your new coffee sucks. Bring back the old stuff.

    True, but let's be realistic. Only the top 10% most literate people really care about they're* grammer.

    To the super size me comment.

    I think everyones seen super size me. Its compltely, for the most part, irrelevant. We al know that if you stuff your face 3 times a day with fatty foods and dont exercise, you will get fat. I could do the same experiement with any take out food.
  12. Still, there has to be some law describing how whenever someone critisizes spelling/grammar on the internet, they're going to make a spelling or grammar mistake in their accusation.

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    The only reason I've eaten fast food at all the last five years is my four-year-old, who believes that McDonald's is a paragon of the culinary arts.

    I find that threatening to order fish sandwiches for everyone in the car if they don't make up their minds in a hurry insures that we'll be ready to order long before I actually hit the drive thru window :)

    When I worked at McD's as a teen I once had a lady order fried okra.

    I swear to God, if we are asking you stupid questions, it is becuase we've been getting a lot of stupid customers, so we just have to cover our bases.

    I will agree that fries on the bottom of the bag sucks. If I'm assembling orders, I'm crazy about making sure the fries are in the locked and upright position.

    Getting fat is obvious, I was surprised at how unhealthy the food really is. Like the chicken nuggets when they showed how they were made. That was sick.

    The sad part is, I think there are alot of people who do eat fast food multiple times per day. You can get away with it when you're young and active.

    Uh-huh. Did you go see the Spongebob movie because your four year old wanted to also? Do you browse the aisles of WWF action figures at Toys 'R Us because your four year old wants to?

    :D :D

    When did breakfast change to 10:30? Damn! when I was younger, breakfast was until 11:30. Goes to show how long it's been since I've tried to get breakfast at McDonalds.

    No, and no. I've gotten much better at saying ,"NO!" to darn near anything thanks to that four-year-old. :) And who the #$%$ is insane enough to attempt to take small children to any kind of movie? Drives me nuts. He can watch Spongebob at home with his mother, who likes the show, thank you much. I'm not paying 40 bucks to get the family into a movie for the privelage of saying, "NO" fifty times as we pass the candy bins and video games on the way to our seat.
