6. Extra cheese…money please…

Do you know that McD would be very strict with their rules? The authority once fired a manager for not charging for an extra slice of cheese for a worker who bought a cheese burger after work. Here I am thinking that if I become an employee in McD, I would be given access to awesome free food. Seems like a dream.

7. McJob-ouch… the meaning really hurts

McD has a word in dictionary on its name. No guys, it’s not about its world famous Big Mac but it’s about their employees. The word is McJob and it describes the word as something which requires no skill and doesn’t show many opportunities in the future. Now that’s a shame. Who says there is no skill required in making those yummy yummy items???

8. Ham burgers? No, hot dogs!


If in a quiz they ask you what would have been the first item McD had sold. What would your answer be? Definitely not hot dogs, right? But that’s where the twist comes. The first item McDonald’s sold were hot dogs and not those yummy, heavy, mouth watering Big Macs. Ufff… quiz sucks, I say!!
