    Remember when your parents threatened you with having to work in a McDonalds when you got older if you didnt study and do well in school? Now we are supposed to reward them for being slackers and breeding :no:

    Why didn't you stay and make a career out of it?

    What? It's meant to be an entry level job? @Bro

    This thread has strayed from the violent savage in the OP.

    Fast food jobs were supposed to be for high functioning retards and the guys in high school that sat in the back in chemistry and snorted the reagents. If you are trying to make a living at this, maybe try telemarketing or data entry.

    When I worked at Burger King there was a retarded guy who worked there as well, probably 45 years old. All he could do/was allowed to do was wash dishes. (By "dishes", I mean the plastic tins all the veggies and things are in.) But he kept that job for a while and was still there when I left. Proving that even a complete retard can keep a job as a dishwasher.

    I don't know why I bring this up.

    What percentage of those fast food workers are there because their original qualified position were outsourced to India? I'm going to say about 1/2 of a 1/2 % :jj:
