The 24 Different Ways To Do A Macca's Run

There's a Macca's run for every occasion.

by ,

1. The "sober" Macca's run.

Warner Bros.

Although not as common as the drunk Macca's run, this is still regarded as the base-level run. You hungry, you eat Macca's. Simple.

2. The "leaving the club and Macca's is right there" run.

Less of "run", per se, more of a "Macca's stumble" tbh. Still delish.

3. The "whole house party walks to Macca's" run.

Worth it just to see the look on the poor employee's face when 30 loud, drunk customers roll in at 3am. That is, if you can remember it tomorrow. Sorry, employee.

4. The "designated driver" Macca's run.

This Macca's run targets the poor soul at the house party who's still under the limit and is tasked with the purchasing of $100 worth of McDonald's meals, all of which are special orders.

5. The "drunk in a taxi" Macca's run.

The worst part of this is the conversation you have to have in order to make this happen: "Excusssse me pls, sir, could we go to the inner west plllsss but first can we go through the Macca's drive through pls? Pls?"

6. The "hungover" Macca's run.


Be honest, this has probably saved your life on at least one occasion.

7. The "first Macca's run as licensed driver".

McDonald's / Via

"This is my mum's car DO NOT SPILL ANYTHING!" - you, to your pedestrian mates.

8. The "pre-empting a shit meal" Macca's run.

When you're going to a dinner party at a friend's and they've burnt every meal they've ever made for you.

9. The "post shitty meal" Macca's run.


You didn't pre-empt your shit meal and could barely make it through the burnt-up, mess of crap you were served.

10. The "post-gym" Macca's run.

"I earned this" - you, after burning half the calories you're about to consume.

11. The "lunch break" Macca's run.

Whether it's a reward to yourself for dealing with shitty customers, or the high-cal energy kick you need to make it through your split-shift, this is a Macca's run of necessity.

12. The "what is my life" Macca's run.


When you're like "bye guys, I'm ready for bed!" to your friends at the club, but then you sneakily swing by Macca's, take your meal home in the cab, and eat it in bed, alone. You may or may not wake up with a burger on your face.

13. The "Menulog" Macca's run.


At first, you're like "$25 minimum? I'll never make that!" but then you realise that if you can dream it you, can do it. Not technically a "Macca's run", per se, but running to your phone to order totally counts, right?

14. The "just dessert" Macca's run.


This begins as exclusively a "craving a McFlurry after dinner" Macca's run, but let's be real, you'll probably end up eating a burger, too.

15. The "pyjamas" Macca's run.

When you CBF getting dressed, but you can definitely go to the effort of going all the way to Macca's, gettin' your food, and taking it home to eat.

16. The "post school formal" Macca's run.

Because nothing says ~class~ like munchin' down on a Big Mac in your $120 Miss Shop gown.

17. The "free period" Macca's run.


Take that, 13-year-olds, us seniors are goin' to Macca's for lunch.

18. The "wagging school" Macca's run.

Because eating Macca's is way better than trying to explain to your teacher why you haven't handed any homework in for three weeks.

19. The "after school" Macca's run.

McDonalds / Via

It's the cool place to hang out, and nothing says ~cool~ like EFTPOSing a cheeseburger and praying to the gods above that you've the necessary $2.10 left in your account to pay for it.

20. The "stoned" Macca's run.

McDonald's / Via

When you order 30 Cheese and Bacon burgers, eat one, and then sit there for five hours staring at the remaining 29.

21. The "international" Macca's run.

When you're in another country and you have to go and see if ~your meal~ tastes the same. It doesn't.

22. The "cramming for exams" Macca's run.

Shin-Ei Animation

When you're about to burn all the calories of a Macca's meal through sheer stress.

23. The "treat yo' self" Macca's run.

"You've had a really hard week, okay? You just, you need this!" - you, talking to yourself.

24. And the "double" Macca's run.

For when you think one Macca's meal is enough, but you eat it and realise that you were wrong.
