please someone reassure my this is just fuckin w people right.
this is bullshit what the fuck
Wait y’alls cups are really that small? holy fuck
why the fuck anyone needs 1.3L of coke in one sitting is beyond me but anyway
YOU EXPECT YOUR CHILDREN TO DRINK 700ML DRINKS TO COME WITH THEIR FUCKING HAPPY MEAL??? FUCK OUTTA HERE AMERICA
We have a “Kids” size that is smaller than the small. It’s like an Australian medium (which is the same size as a can of coke btw). Also, in the US all of the sizes cost the same amount. $1. You basically pick based on how much soda you want, not how much you want to pay. Which is excellent…if you want to give an entire nation diabetes.
Sometimes I get a little frustrated when people talk about how McDonald’s is bad for you and then in the same breath propose going to a local restaurant where they buy a half-pound bacon cheeseburger. The wheat is the same wheat, the meat is the same meat. There’s nothing about McDonald’s that’s intrinsically bad for you except portion sizes, which are just as bad, if not worse, at sit-down service places.
There’s this perception that McDonald’s is junk food simply because it’s McDonald’s and, frankly, I’m starting to think it’s classist. Like, It’s where poor people go, so it must not be substandard.
The only problem with McDonald’s is that when you get a Big Mac Meal with large fries and a coke, you’re getting 1,300 calories set in front of you…and unfortunately it tastes so damn good that you’ll eat the whole thing.
Oh…another problem with McDonald’s is that to keep their prices low they pay poverty-level wages to, increasingly, adult professional people, but that’s not what I hear people complaining about.
Sorry Hank, but this time I disagree. I live in Italy so what I am going to say maybe different for the US, but if I choose to go to have a burger in a restaurant is because I expect they have better quality ingredients than McDonald’s. I go there because I expect they will have meat that comes from the best beef. Of course it will be more expensive than McDonald’s, but I also hope it will have more quality and quality is what I’m paying for. And let me tell you, some burger places serves burger bigger than the ones they served in McDonald so portions are not the problem. I think McDonald’s is junk food because the ingredients are low quality, but then again, maybe in Italy we are used to higher standards of quality.
Of course, what you say about the poverty level pay is sadly true. From a corporate point of view I understand it: it’s the best way to be competitive on the global markets but is terrible for people who work there. In Italy, we have the opposite problem: salaries have become so expensive that Italian corporations simply can’t be competitive anymore and they are all migrating into places were labor is cheap and, in this way, our economy is soffering terribly and is becoming possible to find a paying job.
I hope it’s clear what I’m triyng to say and I didn’t sound too aggressive.
