McDonald's Responds To Claims That They Train Employees To Under-Fill French Fry Orders


It's a feeling that every American can relate to: you go to McDonald's; you order your fries; you eat your friends, and you feel like — just as quickly as you got said French fries — you are out of the fries. Well, if this harrowing tale has you saying, "OMG, me!" we have some good news for you: If you've ever felt like you've eaten your order of fries way too quickly, your gluttonous ways may not be the problem. 

McDonald's workers have come out recently saying that they've been explicitly trained by their company to under-fill french fry orders, as per this AskReddit thread that asked what their respective occupations are "hiding" from the customer. Allow this one employee of the Golden Arches to explain: 

I worked at McDonald's and they taught me how to pinch the fry carton just right while putting the fries into them so that it looked full, but actually wasn't.
I only had 1 customer call me out on it. He shook the fries out into his bag and poured them back into the fry carton himself and it only filled up half way, so I had to give him more fries. I was impressed and embarrassed. It's been 7 years and I can still see his face.
