1 chicken sandwich
1 medium order of fries
1 medium drink
4 chicken nuggets
1 small order of fries
1 small drink
1 small ice cream
1 child's toy

$5.03

I've never tried one, only tried Subway. The only time I really go to MDs is at night time on a munchie run, and it's like 10.30. I'm afraid that if they have to make a sandwich half an hour before they go home they will spit in it or something.

Last time I tried to get a Subway was in London, those cunts have a 5 minimum, I only wanted the sandwich. The closest one to me (near my work) lets me buy just the 6" sub on my card for whatever it is. Franchises....

Good point. But I wouldn't like to be glowing after I had eaten a Big Mac.

Simple questions to ask yourself - Am I healthy? Am I dead?

If the answer to the questions are yes and no respectively, then keep eating the product. We've been doing that since we first crawled out of the slime.

Well they are mass produced. So they would chuck them into the deep fat fryer without paying enough attention and if you just put them into the box quickly, you could just see the shape of one.

You'd have to ask where it went wrong at the warehouse it was produced.

I worked in Maccie's for two weeks before I walked out, it was shit, degrading work.

It is a very hard job. Yes, a monkey could be trained to do it but you are constantly doing something at 1,000mph. From experience, we didn't look at what we threw in the fryers, we just assumed it was the right stuff. Where I worked, it was the right stuff all the time; the chicken head incident was a freak occurence.

Iran (and maybe other countries do this) have a mandatory 3 year army service for male school leavers.

I think the same policy (of sorts) should be applied to the fast food industry.

"Every school leaver must work at least 2 weeks in McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, or similair."

It wouldn't work in practice, but it is a good theory I think. Some people I know haven't had a job until they were in their early 20s, and have never worked behind a bar or fast food counter.

Tesco are the whores of the supermarket industry. They are literally eating up customers. Why? Because ASDA has been bought over by Walmart and are making it all American - smaller aisles, less food choice (because of all the homeware), bad working conditions, shit store all around really. I can never find anything I want either.

And the head of Walmart is now whinging that Tesco are stealing their customers away. I wonder why? Fucktard.

Yeh, what did I come on here for? Oh yeh. I just wanted to say that any job working with the public can be a very gruelling one. I think working with the public is one of the most stressful jobs there is (well, apart from the obvious - police, firefighter, etc) because the public are unpredictable and more often than not, stupid.

Factory work isn't so bad, depends what you are doing though. It can sometimes be very boring. Manual work, I don't really mind - at least you know you've earned your wage. An honest day's work and all that.

I still think that working in a pub or in a fast food place are really hard jobs though. I worked in a bowling alley (Hollywood Bowl) for 3 years. Who the hell thought alcohol and bowling balls are a good match-up? Retards. Dodging a 14 pound bowling ball being thrown at me by some drunken moron is not part of my minimum wage duties.

KFC workers make minimum wage? Bullshit.
Minimum Wage: $5.15 hourly
KFC: $7.20 hourly (starting rate)
People that work at KFC aren't college drop outs, they're people that never even made it to college. They're the worst of the fucking worst. I should know, I worked at a KFC for four months before deciding "Fuck this, I quit." During that short period of time there was so much turnover that I was a fucking senior employee. Fuck KFC. Oh, and about the whole chicken head thing, it would have been just tossed in the fryer with the nuggets that it, no doubt, came with because there is no reason that an actual chicken head would be at a KFC location.
