McChat about the famous fast food brand.
Oh I'm witty.
And here we go...
Does anyone remember the transforming dinosaur toys? I was obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid (thanks to Jurassic Park), so I absolutely loved them.
My dad was the maintenance man for McDonald's when I was younger, so he used to get me all the toys. Score!
The breakfast stuff is the best thing ever when you're hungover/still drunk.
I used to love McDonalds as a kid, then I grew to hate it for some reason, but now I love it again really. McRoyal Deluxe and a Oreos McFlurry = amazing.
Does anyone remember when the McDonalds trays had pictures of Ronald, Grimace, Mayor McCheese etc on them?
I don't remember the dinosaurs, but I do remember the robots.
Remember when there were toys based on the 101 dalmatians film? ...101 different ones? I wanted them all so much.
Yes! I knew someone that worked there so I ended up with about 30 of them. The Christmas ones were the rarest, apparently.
No, but my store used to have this mural on the wall until we got refurbished to look like a cocktail bar:
That's impressive. I don't remember that, but I remember the Mr Men and Little Miss ones. There were 40.
This is an odd (& mispunctuated!) thread and now I want a McFlurry quite terribly. Thanks, PJ.
Mine had a massive tiled picture of McDonaldland and they tore it down to make everything generic and orange / green / pukey khaki
Worst job ever. Really soul destroying.
SHIT! Do I need an apostrophe before the s? I did have one, but then thought it didn't need one.
I really want that McFlurry now - it's more or less the only thing I let myself eat from there and if I got them as often as I wanted I'd be the size of a small house. Tank de lawd I don't love near enough one to just go and get it. Let's chalk it up to a victory of willpower.
I ended up with about 8 or 9 different dalmatians I think.
The McD I usually got a huge makeover less than a year ago, now it has a very lounge-y feel to it, with lots of couches and stuff, and also a big open air area. It's all very classy.
I have such a bittersweet relationship with it.
The nature of the work is soul destroying, yes. But the team environment is nice - most of my friends are through work. It's also good job security - I've been able to keep my job whilst I'm away in London, working back in the summer.
Oh ours got that treatment! They have some really nice spiny green chairs I want for my uni room.
My first real job after paperboy.
I'd rather play chess with Amelle! (And suffer her nervous banter!)
I have about 3 realllly close friends who work there and the rest are snakes in the grass. And there are only about 3 or the managers who are nice/approachable.
