What you see is a series of flash cards designed to explain—to youngsters, I hope—the ordering process at America’s (now the planet’s) favorite fast food joint. Aside from the dark wood decor, I found the steps pretty interesting. First, the employee takes the customer’s order—on a notepad! How quaint. Then the employee gets the customer’s food and drink ready, placing all of it on the tray. Only then does the employee ring up the customer and take her money.

    I love McDonalds! Always have. I just wish the libtards would leave them alone and do some actual parenting instead of forcing Mcdonalds to be the parent.

      I do, too! I don’t know what it is, but something about McDonald’s hits the right buttons for me (& makes me wish I still drank soda; for some reason, nothing compared to an orange soda in a McDonald’s cup!).
