McDonalds is truly a hot spot for people watching. Whether you're grabbing a midnight snack or a breakfast combo, most McDonalds are full of people spanning all age ranges and life backgrounds whose worlds collide over the craving for a cheap, delicious snack.
While there are plenty of opportunities for wholesome exchanges over a shared meal, the most memorable stories often involve a lot of drama.
I was on I-94 outside Detroit and stopped at McD for a snack. A female employee came from behind the counter and told me that four guys at a nearby table “saw you drive in in that fancy car and are going to rob you”. I ran out the door.
I worked at McDonald’s in high school. Once there was this new guy, I forget his name let’s call him D. He apparently went to the same high school as me but I never even saw him. He’d worked there for about a week and he sucked at his job. Always showed up high and had no respect for the managers, but that’s McDonald’s for ya. One day, during a busy rush at about 5pm, I’m working in the kitchen and D is up front pouring coffee. I see this well dressed white man in his 50s step behind the counter, which I noticed because I hate when customers do that.
