  • - Pop a hole in the container, put the straw through it,

  • and there you go.

  • It was falling.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Hey everyone I am Kaya, I'm a former McDonald's employee

  • and here are 10 ways you're eating McDonald's wrong.

  • (upbeat music)

  • So instead of ordering a sausage egg McMuffin,

  • you can order a sausage McMuffin and just add egg.

  • It does save you a few cents and as a former worker,

  • I do know the smartest customers were the ones

  • that bought a la carte and just added the extras on top.

  • So this also applies to other food items on the menus

  • such as some of the sandwiches.

  • It is usually just cheaper to order the extras on top.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Tip number two, using your fry container as a burger holder

  • to avoid messy situations.

  • If you're someone who's a messy eater like a lot of us,

  • you can put the burger in the fry container

  • and while you're eating,

  • the little extra bits are gonna fall in the container

  • and later you can just pick those out and eat 'em

  • if you want to.

  • And the extra bits from the burger

  • also won't fall on your clothes while you're driving

  • and eating at the same time for example.

  • (upbeat music)

  • So tip number three, McDonald's on the go.

  • Say you're running late for work or you're at college

  • and you're walking, what you can do

  • is punch a little hole through the container

  • and put it on the straw and there you go,

  • so you can drink with this,

  • you can take a bite of your burger,

  • you can have some fries, all in one hand on the go.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Tip number four is adding Mac sauce to your french fries.

  • It's kind of like animal style fries but it's inexpensive

  • and it's kind of like your own homemade version.

  • Back when I worked there, I discovered this

  • and I ate this so many times, probably more than I should've

  • but I really enjoy it honestly.

  • And if you've never tried this,

  • you should definitely try it.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Tip number five is the budget Big Mac.

  • Basically you take a McDouble,

  • ask for no ketchup and no mustard

  • and instead add Big Mac sauce.

  • I tried this in my first week of working there

  • and I loved it.

  • The taste is honestly really similar to the regular Big Mac

  • and it's so much cheaper so yeah why not.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Tip number six is bring your own salad

  • and then just add chicken nuggets into it.

  • It's like the best of both worlds,

  • you can get your little unhealthy bits of chicken nuggets

  • and also have your salad

  • and also it is probably gonna be a bit cheaper

  • 'cause fast food salads can get expensive

  • and the nuggets themselves are usually pretty cheap.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Tip number seven, is knowing that

  • you can add egg to any burger on the menu that you want.

  • So here we have a Big Mac

  • and you can add egg to the sandwich to make it an Egg Mac.

  • (upbeat music)

  • The eighth hack is knowing that you can order

  • either the round egg or the folded egg

  • on any sandwich you want.

  • So you can add it to to a breakfast sandwich,

  • you can order it to a lunch sandwich

  • and you know that you have the option

  • to like, switch it up whenever you want.

  • For example, the McGriddle circular sandwich,

  • to me it makes more sense to add the circular egg onto it

  • because, well, it's a circular sandwich.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Tip number nine is if you take a McFlurry top,

  • say you're driving, you're eating your nuggets on the go,

  • you take a McFlurry top and you put your sauce

  • in the top as a holder.

  • Say you're driving, you can just take McNugget

  • and dip it in there, knowing it's secure,

  • you won't make a mess

  • and yeah, that's how you can eat 'em on the go

  • and still dipping them into your sauce.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Tip number 10 just remember

  • that all McDonald's employees are human,

  • don't forget to treat them with respect,

  • sometimes things happen, orders misplaced,

  • takes a little while

  • but employees are working as hard as they can

  • and the nicer you are,

  • the more likely to give you freebies,

  • remember your orders,

  • get you out a little quicker,

  • get in and out a little quicker and yeah.

  • So my name is Kaya

  • and this was 10 ways you're eating McDonald's wrong.

  • (upbeat music)
