Anyone who has ever worked in hospitality or retail will understand the level of frustration when a customer arrives within 5 minutes of closing time. Generally, people tend to smile and slyly usher them to hurry up – but one McDonald’s worker said: not today.
In a viral TikTok that has since racked up nearly half a million views in 48 hours, Hails (@hailsmaebackup) asked the drive-thru McDonald’s worker to “add large fries” onto her already existing $61.30 order – ten minutes before they were due to close the doors.
The employee had a hard time internalising his feelings and instead snapped back: “You know we close in like 10 minutes, you f***ing b**ch. C’mon.”
