    I don't normally talk to him on a daily basis like some of my closer friends, but I'll call him and ask him to give me his thoughts and see if he is willing to share; I know he will definitely want to be anonymous- not because of the question, but because (as you can imagine) he simply doesn't want to say something that could potentially jeopardize his employment. If anyone can give an honest in-depth answer, I'm fairly confident he can. This person works for a company who franchises/manages 75+ McDonalds restaurants.
    His employment is actually a nice story, because he literally started out as a standard employee (when I first met him) and has risen through the ranks and now makes in the triple digits with bonuses etc as a type of regional manager who makes sure that a group of restaurants have their shit in order.

    I'll post his response when he gives me one
    Ya and while you have him on the phone ask him what is the menu item least likely to cause aids

    You're cheating yourself by eating at McDonald's.

    Johnny wanted McDs after I picked him up from the ER, the fries were full but the drink was filled 2 inches from the top, they got it back to fill properly.

    He has been busy the past few days but I will actually be stopping by his home most likely on Saturday sometime. He apparently tried to keep his current situation on the down-low, but I just learned this past week he and his wife adopted a newborn - I can't believe he didnt tell any of us sooner! Good for both of them for doing that; not many people out there are willing to step up to the plate and take on something like this. He texted me a pic yesterday and that kid is adorable.

    Anyway, It might be a couple of days until I can post his response, but once again, I know he knows his shit and if anyone can give a good honest answer, he can.

    I hear people all the time saying they hate McDonalds. Yet every time I drive by one there is a drive thru line 10 deep. I stopped for a Big Mac the other day and it took like 10 minutes to get a to go order and I went inside which was a huge mistake, the fucking chaos. Place was fucking packed, employees literally scattered all over the place with little direction.

    Lot of people say they hate it, but look around, it’s almost stunning how fat people are now. Young people especially. Totally standard to see a dozen kids standing around now and 7 are morbidly obese, 3 are skinny jean wearing kids you kind of presume are gay but not sure, and maybe 2 standard size kids. McDonald’s jewing off a few fries is like Phillip Morris putting 18 smokes in a pack. They’re kind of helping you live an extra minute.

    Got scammed pretty good at Buffalo Wild Wings take out last night. Ordered two of their "small" bone in wings (the smallest size is a 5 piece), got there and she showed me two 9 pieces, which is what the small really is. Apparently, the 5 piece is called "snack size", and even though Ive been there tons of times I had no clue that was the case. Insult to injury no celery or blue cheese with either one. Im like the antidruff when it comes to complaining about this shit, but even I sent corporate an email after this debacle. No response as of yet.

    Yup. It pretty much mirrors my experiences with BWW takeout the past few years. I'm thoroughly convinced they do this shit on purpose, right down to not giving celery or dressing.

    They used to clearly label "12 wings" "24 wings" etc. Now they came up with this absolutely useless and God awful "small", "snack size" etc bullshit.

    To avoid getting screwed ordering takeout, quickly check the contents of the bag before leaving the store. That’s how I was able to get a free small fry when I showed the McDonalds assistant manager how they have cheated me on the large fry order.

    I went to their website and checked the menu near me. If I only use the website, everything is fine, it lists "snack size" as approx 5 wings, etc. But if you download the pdf of the entire menu, which looks like the in-store menu, there is no count, just the size.

    That's pretty shitty.

    Yup.

    As an addendum to my last post, I forgot to mention that at one point they even changed the amount of wings in some of the different "sizes". I cant remember when it was, but they did it. So let's say you eventually got used to ordering using their new silly sizes...then they went an changed the contents... WITHOUT clearly mentioning this in the menus. Talk about confusion

    Now, I was just chatting with my ex here about this and she claims they never included celery and dressing in the ordering, but I'm certain that at some point in the past they did.
