    This is from a posting in 'Customer Not Always Right'. It happened in New York at a convenience store and was posted by an employee there...

    (Our store makes breakfast sandwiches in the morning. One of them being a simple bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich.)

    Customer: “Hi, my mom bought a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich just five minutes ago, but she wants a new one because there’s something wrong with the egg.”

    Me: “Oh, I’m very sorry about that! What was wrong with it?”

    Customer: *holds up the sandwich* “There’s white stuff in it.”

    Me: “White stuff? You mean this?” *points at egg whites*

    Customer: “Yeah, that’s it.”

    Me: “That’s just the white of the eggs. It’s nothing to worry about.”

    Customer: “Eggs aren’t white. They’re yellow like the eggs at McDonald’s.”

    Me: “McDonald’s eggs are different. We actually take the time to crack open real eggs to make our sandwiches. Sometimes, the white of the egg shows through with the yolk when we scramble them.”

    Customer: “I’m not stupid! Eggs don’t have white! They’re all yellow!”

    Me: Haven’t you ever made scrambled eggs before? Or hardboiled an egg?”

    Customer: “Eggs are yellow!”

    (I tell the cook, who shakes his head and remakes the sandwich with the egg mixed as uniformly yellow as he could manage.)

    Actually, McDonald's does crack their eggs open from large shipment of white eggs. They crack them inside a metal circular thing on the grill and slightly scramble before cooking. I'm not sure if they changed their way of cooking, this was over 20 years ago.

    I often cooked my own eggs for the sandwhiches and fried them normally before I went on break.

    Most of the McDs have gone to liquid eggs. A few still use real eggs. Maybe less than 50%

    That is crazy sad. If the economy failed right now there would be hundreds of thousands of people starving to death because they have no idea where food comes from.

    Quote:we had to put ours in a blender when I worked for mcdonalds.. that way any that had blood in them were mixed in with the good eggs so that no one would notice.. and yep.. we had a lot of eggs with blood in them.. but management decided they didn't want any losses when it came time for company reviews!

    what i learned from working at mcdonalds: never eat there!

    Get used to things like this.

    Life experiences and knowing how to do things with your hands are going to be gone in my lifetime.

    Invest in fast food businesses... or better yet... SOYLENT GREEN!

    Anyone who knows what soylent green is must be at least 50.
