So, if you're a former McDonald's employee (or still work there), I'm dying to hear your secrets/stories while on the job.


A secret or story that'll truly shock people!

Maybe you worked the drive-thru during the night shift, and every time you gave the customer their Mickey D's bag, you were required to sing: "Ba da ba ba bah, I'm lovin' it!"

Or perhaps when you were bored during slow hours, you took leftover Big Mac boxes from the back and dressed up as a giant robot to entertain your coworkers.
