Twitter’s Heart Is Breaking Over Picky Guy’s Super Depressing McDonald’s Order
“Hello! Welcome to McDonald’s. How may I help you?”
“Could I please get one cheeseburger with no onion, no ketchup, no mustard, no pickles, no bun and no meat patty?”
“… Will that be all?”
So, aside from that probably being the most insanely specific order ever requested at the infamous Golden Arches, in your mind, what should that order look like?
Because this is what McDonald’s thought it should look like.
In case you didn’t already realize, someone actually placed this exact order.
The man behind this strange, picky order tweeted out a picture of his lonely slice of cheese, writing,
I ordered a cheese. Not sure what I expected.
I’m not sure what you expected either, buddy. But if it was a single, sad slice of cheese, you got it.
According to MailOnline, this guy’s order of just cheese still set him back 99 cents, the cost of a full cheeseburger.
His tweet has since gone viral, raking in 24,000 retweets and 38,000 likes.
Technically, yeah, McDonald’s kinda nailed it.
Dude got exactly what he asked for.
But why are you like this, McDonald’s?
The cheese vaguely resembles a warm, wonderful yellow blanket. Mmmm. Anyone else ready for a nap?
“Who ever heard of a sal-ad?!”
Why is it so easy to make Spongebob references for this?
At least it’s safe to say any chef who’s dealt with picky eaters definitely got a kick out of this.
According to @coL_Merchant’s original tweet, he didn’t actually speak to a real McDonald’s employee when placing his odd order, as the post features a picture of a self-service machine.
I can’t help but wonder if this would have gone down differently if a real person had directly received this order.
Would @coL_Merchant have been laughed out of the fast food establishment? Or would it have sparked an interesting, cheese-centered conversation between customer and server?
Would a new friendship have been born? Would a cheese revolution in the fast food industry have ensued shortly thereafter?
These are the questions that keep me up at night.
