McDonald's Secret Menu Follow Up
So a while ago I found out about this website. As the vast majority of their information on there is wrong, I sent them an e-mail asking them about it, thirteen days ago. (I’ll include what I wrote later). I still have yet to receive any reply… So…okay then. I’m tempted to send them another e-mail, even if I’m pretty sure they’re not gonna respond to it as...
madddymouse: mcdonaldshorrorstories: madddymouse: Did you know that you can order McDonald’s pancakes all day? Even if the person says they’re not serving breakfast, you can still buy just the pancakes all fucking day. It’s great. Not at all stores. The store I work at doesn’t do hotcakes after breakfast hours. The only breakfast items we do all day are oatmeal and cinnamelts. ...
Breakfast At Noon?
We’ve finished breakfast. Done. Finito. Breakfast ended a solid twenty minutes ago and we’re fully into lunch. This old couple come through. They try to order breakfast. I tell them sorry, we’re no longer doing breakfast today, that it ended at 10:30. “I thought it was until 11!” “I’m sorry, it’s only until 11 on Saturdays and Sundays here....
Don't Give An Inch
We’ve finished breakfast about five minutes ago. I’m in back drive, and this customer asks if we have breakfast. It’s possible we might have a little left, so I tell them that, but I’d have to ask grill. After discerning what they want (just a Sausage Muffin), I ask grill, and they say they have it. Alright, no problem! Everyone’s happy. We don’t waste food...
French Fry Tales: Getting Busy →
mcdonaldshorrorstories: frenchfrytales: It’s been getting busier and busier in the mornings at work, but no one capable of handling the schedule is doing a fucking thing about it. We’re getting slammed earlier and earlier in the day, and I’m barely getting prep done before we start lunch. Hell, one day it took me an hour to just to get… I know what you mean by going crazy in the back hole....
It’s been getting busier and busier in the mornings at work, but no one capable of handling the schedule is doing a fucking thing about it. We’re getting slammed earlier and earlier in the day, and I’m barely getting prep done before we start lunch. Hell, one day it took me an hour to just to get parfaits made, because I had to take orders at the same time. I never got more then...
Okay…Seriously. I’m starting to think whoever is handling salads on the three days I don’t has no fucking clue what they’re doing. I go to make salads, and there’s still three salads (including two blanks) from two days ago. How do I know they’re from then? Because they still have the goddamn sticker on them I put on for their date and time. My handwriting and...
Welcome to fast food confessions
fastfooddrama: Hello- this is an anonymous confession blog where I will post my rants about what it is like to work at a fast food place and the stuff I put up with. I will not disclose any personal information as I am still working at the place that I am and I do not want this to get passed around to the company. I will accept any submissions if any one has them. Go, my followers! Go and...
Don't Spit On My Food
Another gem of a customer. It’s early in the morning, only four people on right now, one of them maintenance and doing his own thing to get us ready, so only three of us for customers. One grill, one front, and one back drive (me). So I take some orders, and this lovely customer comes through. She orders two Sausage Egg Muffins. I ask if she would like anything else. “Yes, please...
No Room To Complain
Two in a row here… Lady comes into drive thru. I give my usual spiel, and she says “I need a minute.” And then fucking calls someone, has a conversation with them, nothing to do with maybe checking to see if they want something at McDonalds (which would still have be douchey, but slightly more understandable). Finally they order, pull up, and pay. I hand them their receipt and...
bootlecoops asked: People at my store are OBSESSED with styrofoam cups. If I give them a large plastic cup 9/10 will ask for styrofoam. I had no idea there was such plastic hate- is it like that at your store?
martianpumpkin asked: Hey, I'm starting work at McDonald's (very first job) on Monday, any tips?
I Don't Have Time For You
Oh god…This douchebag. He orders some food through drive thru, then pulls up to pay. He tells me he wants to pay with five dollars on his card, and the rest in cash. I say “Sure, but we have to punch in the cash first.” No problem there. I bunch in his money, swipe his card, all while taking more orders, because I can multitask like a boss. I had him his receipt and his card...
Don't Insult My CoWorkers
Yes, sometimes I dislike or outright hate a coworker. Sometimes they do stupid things that go beyond simple human error and go into if not intended malice, at least malice by apathy. But customers, do not complain about one of our coworkers to us. We don’t like it. Perhaps, yes, we might agree with you, but I still have more in common with my coworker then I do with the customer complaining...
myretailconfessions: If I get asked another stupid question tonight, I’m going to spontaneously combust. But if there’s a reason for it, would it still be spontaneous?
Anonymous asked: I may sound silly, but I noticed that you asked why someone would call McChickens "chicken burgers". This sounds REALLY normal to me, as my family does the same thing. They are technically chicken burgers, right? Saying "McChickens" also sounds kinda weird to me. Then again, to each their own. I also don't go to Macky-D's very often, so my knowledge of the menu is...
11 Chickens at Nine in the Morning
Working back drive, and it’s nine in the morning. I get a customer! I give my usual greeting, and they start with: “I want 11 chicken burgers, I want one with Jalapeno-“ At this point I do interrupt them, so they don’t waste time trying to tell me their entire special order. “I’m sorry, we don’t start lunch until 10:30. It’s only breakfast right...
I don’t care if you get the same thing every time you come. I don’t care if you come at the same time every day. You wait for me to say “Please pull ahead to the first window” before you fucking pull ahead of the speaker. Be fucking patient so I can tell you your total, instead of having you stare blankly at me when you finally pull up.

Anonymous asked: Why is the first of the month so busy at McDonalds? coupons?
I didn’t even make it through my first day of training. They had me making chicken, nuggets, and fish in the back, and boxing apple pies. I nearly had a nervous breakdown. So I told the lady I couldn’t do this and left. _______ FFT: Ummm…Not to be rude, but…what were you expecting? That’s a pretty standard first day, along with watching some video. Any job like...
steggiec asked: I used to work in retail at a grocery store, and we were all put in the UFCW union (United Food and Commercial Workers union). I don't know if that's just for grocery stores or not, but they are considered part of the retail industry, so I guess there is a union for retail?
Customer: What sizes do you have?
Me: Small, medium and large. Like every other fast food joint in the world. Dumbass.

WE Need Help, Not Them
Another story from the first of the month here. We’re slammed, and I’m running out orders for the window. And making the drinks. And getting hash browns down. It’s just BUSY. One manager who I like had to go on their lunch, and another, our new store manager (I think this is like…the fifth one since I’ve started working here?) steps up. I’m not really sure...
Not Her Fault
First of the month, and even though it was a Wednesday, we were getting slammed. I get parfaits made and part of our table prep for lunch ready, before I’m switched out with someone else to take my spot in back drive, while I’m put up front. And we…just keep getting hit. Pretty much constant orders through drive thru, and our lobby keeps getting slammed too. My coworker who is...
Mcblog: Customer Profile No. 204: Rude couple →
mcdonaldshorrorstories: Rude people annoy the shit out of me. I would like it if every single one of them would be tarred and feathered so we can all laugh at their ridiculousness. This couple came through my drive thru tonight. As soon as I greeted them three damn times I still didn’t get a response. They were going… You are not the only person who curses and calls rude ass customers...
knucxsonia asked: I heard that there's a possibility that McDonalds will start doing all-day breakfasts. What's your opinion on that?
steggiec asked: Reading that last story you just posted (about the woman who wanted you to look at her) just made me very angry. As I was reading it, I was trying to figure out how I would have reacted, and although I am a very calm girl outwardly, I don't think I could have handled that woman the way you did. Props to you.
Can't Pay Attention
It was a good day. It was busy, but I was in the zone in back drive, getting stuff taken care of, and thanks to it being busy, time was flying by. Then comes this lady. This bitch. This horrible excuse for a person. First, let’s start with her order. She orders a Number 1 breakfast meal. Okay. I ask if she wants coffee to drink. Nope, she wants water…okay…annoying, but, yah....
mcdonaldshorrorstories asked: What's your favorite place to get a burger that's not Mcdonald's?
Salads Are Apparently Hard
In the continuing adventures of no bacon bits for our Bacon Ranch salads, here’s a story. I’m trying to make salads, so I get out the ones from yesterday, to see if they’re still good. If not, I chuck them and write down what they were for the manager to put in for the waste. Anyways, there’s a surprisingly large amount of salads left. I get them out, and before...
Lack of Bacon Is Not My Fault
I went to start making our salads for the day. I went to get everything out, and hey, looks like we were out of the bacon bits for our Bacon Ranch salad. No problem, I’ll get some out from the freezer and let them thaw as I get the other salads made. …But alas…No bacon bits. I tell the manager and she says “Oh well, we should be getting them later today. Just make a few...
How Not To Close: Part II
So, after the hecticness Part I, I went in the next day at the same time for my shift. The dishes were better arranged, and some stock was done…but… They didn’t empty the grease traps. The grill opener apparently was taking them out because they were off kilter, and grease just glooped everywhere on the grill room, so the maintenance guy had to clean it up. I mean…really?...

Submitted by: steggiec Even though technically we are open 24/7, I have been an “opener” for the past two years (I work before school so I can use my afternoons for homework, study groups, or clubs and activities).

How Not To Close: Part I
Came in one day in the morning, as per usual now, to find that where we keep all of our clean dishes was in disarray Apparently this was because the closers last night left dishes everywhere, including up front on the counter, so the openers had to scramble to move them out of the way before they opened the store. On top of that, absolutely no dehydrated onions were prepared, and they left us...
