Brexit at work

I would not be so quick on the draw to blame Brexit....

I manufacture auto parts.  The last 2 years have been hell:

employees retired
vendors out of stuff or delayed months
customers tripled but impatient

Our McDonald's here has gotten so greedy they charge for condiments. You want mcchicken sauce or ketchup? Pay up.

I'm hoping they have a shortage of customers soon

They are running out of frozen Russian gerbil meat, they will eventually have to settle for farming Thames river eels.

Certainly having McFlation.

Also, nothing like being trapped in a drive-through line for 20 minutes.

App said points expiring first of the month and so went there. What a nightmare the place is.

McDonald's sucks and the quicker it dies the better

For me, it's the McChicken. The best fast food sandwich. I even ask for extra McChicken sauce packets and the staff is so friendly and more than willing to oblige.

One time I asked for McChicken sauce packets and they gave me three. I said, "Wow, three for free!" and the nice friendly McDonald's worker laughed and said, "I'm going to call you 3-for-free!".

Now the staff greets me with "hey it's 3-for-free!" and ALWAYS give me three packets. It's such a fun and cool atmosphere at my local McDonald's restaurant, I go there at least 3 times a week for lunch and a large iced coffee with milk instead of cream, 1-2 times for breakfast on the weekend, and maybe once for dinner when I'm in a rush but want a great meal that is affordable, fast, and can match my daily nutritional needs.

I even dip my fries in McChicken sauce, it's delicious! What a great restaurant.

You've never been cool enough to be called "3 for free". How sad.

Yeah I got that too. Points expire? That's a good way to piss people off

Lucky for me after I got that message I had 14002 points, enough for a free meal. Cashed them in and never going back.

Tomatos and grain isn't imported from China.

This is 100% Brexit, as McDs issues is not present in the EU.
