I’m in a Facebook group for McDonald’s staff and it’s quite interesting to see the kinds of weird situations they end up in. I recently saw a post about the weirdest orders they’ve ever received and it was a fun read. To protect the privacy of the group members, I’m posting this as text only & some of it will be tweaked a little bit for context found in the replies/discussion where it’s required.
Do you cut up Big Macs?
We had someone ask if we could cut up everything from a Big Mac (including the bun) and put it in a salad. We said no and got called racist. Like no it’s cross-contamination on our chicken cutter
Customers causing you to stand in the cold
I had to stand out in the pouring rain for a customer to look through all of her food and checks to see if anything was wrong so she didn’t have to her out of her car.
It was snowing and I had no jumper/jacket on, just a short-sleeved top and the customer was like “ just wait here until I’ve checked it” and for someone who had like 2 meals, took her sweet sweet time.
Can you blend my burger?
Blend a cheeseburger in the frappe machine. It was for someone without teeth.

Frappe or Iced Coffee?
I had this lady order a frappe an then asked why it was like 20 cents or some stupid shit more or than the iced coffee (before tax of course) an I was like oh well we’re doing a promotional event where a large iced coffee is $2.14 for limited time and well she was like forget the frappe then give me the iced coffee so I do an I ring it in pay her out idk maybe 5 minutes later she comes through the DT an was like I want my money back so I go get my manager an she tells my manager she wanted a frappe an she doesn’t understand why it was more than the iced coffee an demanded my manager change the price of the large frappe to the promotional price of the iced coffee an my manager said we can’t do that we don’t control prices an the lady was like well then I want the frappe free an I want a refund on my iced coffee an by that point my manager was so pissed at this lady she did she gave her the refund An the frappe free shit was wild the drive through was backed up to the street (were located right off the highway) an it was the most ridiculous thing over 20 cents or less in the price of a drink.

Prank McDonald’s Orders
While in the kitchen we got an order for a Filet, no tartar, no fish patty, no cheese. So we served just the steamed bun and got a complaint. Then we’re always getting DoorDash orders for cheeseburgers without literally everything, so just the wrapper basically. We just either put the wrappers in the bag or just make regular cheeseburgers.
Can I get a chocolate shake without chocolate?
Double cheeseburger with no meat and no bun.
We have a guy who regularly orders 3 or 5 plain eggs.

Weirdly Specific McDonald’s Requests
Iced coffee as light as my skin. Lady is white as fuck, wants 88% milk 5%creamer, the rest coffee with a shit tone of liquid sugar. She’ll make us dump it out and keep adding more and more milk until its white as fuck.
I was taking this person’s order.. and she literally says “don’t burn it don’t brown it they won’t eat it if it is” so I put special request and told them and they said “we literally have no control over that when we steam it” so they get to the window and the presenter ends up throwing it away cause it wasn’t their standards. I said next time just don’t steam it.

Well, they aren’t ridiculous, but, these two orders were hella big.
One was 60 McMuffins and 30 potatoes (they called the day before thank god)
One was a whole school bus, about what 30 ish people? Yeah, all combos. There’s also a bunch of dumb orders and this one lady who keeps coming back cause apparently every time she gets what she asked for, somethings wrong regardless (she makes us wastes at least 50$ of meal prices, not product prices every time she’s here).
