We love McDonald’s. Their fries are undefeated, their nuggets addictive, and a quarter-pounder meal will demolish hunger for hours on end.

But did you know that there’s a certain day in the week that you should avoid getting food from the famed chain?

“You are a good human,” said a commenter about the revelation.

Here are his other ‘confessions’:

  • Staff get annoyed if you order fresh nuggets because they have to prepare an entire new tray
  • He never orders breakfast after noon because the demand is so low that breakfast food sits there for too long

But on the flip side, he did say the work environment is very clean.

One final observation from our greasy-fingered truth-teller: “Yes... we can tell you are high!”
