Three Course Breakfast At McDo

Just a quickie to share my amusement with Filipino McDo baffoonery with the ongoing INability of Filipinos to serve a complete meal all together at the same fucking time. I’ve been stopping a lot at McDo (I really like their coffee) during my cardio workouts and I sometimes feel the hunger for a sausage McMuffin no egg, and an edible oil saturated dripping sponge (better known as McDo Hash Browns). Yeah, I know……out jogging for cardio fitness and I’m stopping for oil saturated fried processed hash browns…I know I know. But it’s not every day, maybe once a week, so back off!

And it never fails. A simple McDo breakfast always turns into a three course meal.

First course: Coffee

(6 or 7 minutes pass)

Second course arrives: Oil saturated edible sponge (Hash browns)

(5 more minutes pass, I have finished my coffee and hash browns)

Third course arrives: Sausage McMuffin

So this means it took a minimum of 12 minutes to put a sausage patty and a slice of cheese between an english muffin.

It’s truly amusing to see such baffoonery.

    WTF? So is there such a thing as fast food in Philippines? I thought fast food restaurants were meant to be fast? Like :

    “Hi, I’d like a big mac meal, fries with coke”

    1 minute later, fries and coke all at once. So wtf, do they have you make an order and then sit down and wait for your meal to be served in McDonalds? I assume there isn’t any drive thru, since you’d probably be asked to go park somewhere and wait.

    There is no such thing as fast food in the philippines. There are however some things filipinos can do fast.
    1.) Beg money.
    2.) Steal.
    3.) Make excuses.
    4.) Shift blame.
    5.) Overpopulate.
    6.) Drive like assholes.
    7.) Throw trash everywhere.
    8.) Piss everywhere.

    I’m sure there are more and suspect other members will add to the list

      They certainly know how to fuck like jack rabbits and procreate like roaches. That’s their specialty. Then they are really fast at asking for money for rewards for being fucktards.

      Excus’itis is a big disease.

      I didnt arrive on time because of the trap’fic (traffic)
      I didnt call because i couldnt afford the 10p sun load (thats how much they value you TEN FUCKING PESOS)
      I cant come today – mum is sick, grandma is sick, a volcano covered the village some fucking thing but they are in the same city!
      I dont have money (so they want to hear the words, “just jump in a taxi and ill pay for it!”
      Theres no food, so no show

    Filo, what’s most amazing about your story is the fact that they had everything you wanted. I didn’t see the words “…we don’t have” anywhere in your post. You must jog by the most efficient McDo in the entire Failippines!

    Well, I guess I could say that they didn’t have any english muffins that didn’t look like they have been abused by a monkey or something. The top half of my muffin was in 3 pieces , only held together by the rapper. I remove the paper wrapper and the top half looks like it was stepped on or something.

      Filo, I commend you for putting your health at risk like that. Not only did you buy from one of the most unhealthy food places on earth, but you risked eating food prepared by Pinoy’s. Who knows what they did to it?

      If your stomach survived that your health must be top notch!

    DONT LIKE IT? LEAVE? Don’t bother complaining to corporates in the Philippines. They have also inherited “Filipino style” and even if you have been treated badly will only think of themselves and who they can terminate. There will never be an offer of free meal replacement, sir we’ll get off our asses and make a special for you, we will give you a voucher etc. NOTHING. They use a customer service mentality of “DONT LIKE IT, THEN LEAVE” … leave the restaurant, dont come back as all the other pinoys there who put up with shit service love it AND THEY DONT COMPLAIN. I have been told this by a restaurant. like wtf.

    That is your definitiion of “traditional filipino service with a smile”, the smile is a grin to say … you can complain all you want but we always done it this way, dont want to change and you;ll get what you always got so don’t bother to dine here Mr. Foreigner.

      The few times I have bothered to go to McD’s what I want is OOS, but we have… No thank you and I’m out of there. Done that at a lot of restaurants here.

    If youre in Manila, go to BK, not great, but more “edible”. Service? Pinoy style. 🙁 also i heard that In n Out is here. Havent been there but might be worth a trip to the fort.

      Rott – you mean “traditional Filipino service” – why the fuck do some businesses say that.. whats that..arggh i know..

      1. if you dont like the service leave
      2. no refunds given even if theres a hair ball in your soup you pay
      3. if you dont pay, the staff will have the cost of the order deducted from their salaries (please sir i have a baby and i fucked up your order but you still pay as your a foreinger “rich, handsum man” ).
      4. what are you doing in the Philippines, do you have awife or girlfriend – yes, i have a girlfriend (after hat all 5 staff IGNORED ME lol as they have done on that same situation many times
      5. sorry cinema goers a bomb just went off in the cinema but we willl offer something like a free movie (that was in Mindanao real case)
      6. sorry no one served you and they were watching tv the whole time you were in the store .. or your meal went to the wrong address – … by the way sir ..”who was that, what time etc” (as if to get to the bottom of it). Thankyou sir your comments have been noted and we will take the appropriate action against the staff. Have a good day!! wtf – wheres my order?
      7. making derogatory comments (talking about their friends gf’s etc- looks, habits they are chain smokers etc) about other people between themselves when your waiting in line to be served. IN FRONT OF CUSTOMERS!!

    Re McDo :

    I really don’t want to talk to the numbskulls in those sorts of places so I always order online where possible.
    It’s worth the 40 pesos (or whatever it is) just to avoid the headaches and to reduce the likelihood of me leaping over the counter and killing someone.
    Delivery guy arrives in 15 minutes or less without fail which is fine by me.
    Once, he even went back to the store and got me a drinking straw after they forgot to put it in the bag. Nice !

    On one occasion he was REALLY quick :

    Me : You were very quick today buddy
    He : Yes sir, you are VIP !!
    Me : Because I tip bigger than Filipinos do ?
    He : Yes sir !!
    Me : So my order always goes to the top of the list and other people have to wait longer ?
    He : Yes Sir !!
    Me : See you next time.

    I’m quite sure that McDonalds Head Office would be furious with the above but I have chosen not to tell them.

      You’re lucky.

      Whether I order online for delivery or walk in and sit down, there’s ALWAYS at least some kind of fail, if not multiple fails. That is the only thing they don’t fail at…..FAILING.

        I tried an order over the phone. The ex-gf spoke to the operator and they sent it after all the explanation to a Manila address!! – the phone seemingly was being diverted from Cebu to Manila. lol.
        Anyway.. the meal never arrived and it was 10.35am!! and got her to phone and sort it all out. Sorry Ma’am its 10.35am and you cant have your order as we have finished doing the breakfast menu!!
        Yea … FIVE FUCKING MINUTES past the cutoff and I never received the order which was 45 minutes late .. and they did the “filipino style” tough shit game.

          Yeah man, if you dont like the way they do it, why dont you go back to your own country! Tough fucking shit, now go away.

          Everyone has heard of the stereotype of the “ugly American” tourist, and I try not to be That Guy. There have been a couple of times where I got that kind of treatment and I didn’t argue because there is no point. Never argue – never. Just don’t, no matter how shitty they are acting. You won’t get anywhere and it will just ruin your day.

          Instead after I was finished with my meal, I “accidentally” spilled a bunch of shit all over the floor and table. I can’t help it, I’m a clumsy dumbass.

          It says, “That’s the only thing they don’t fail at….failing” Read it again my friend.

          They don’t fail at failing. In other words, they succeed at failing.

    OMG I thought I was the only one.

    I finally solved this by paying with a 500 peso bill and telling them can keep the change if I get everything together and in less than 5 minutes.

    Works like a charm.

    And how about their automaton-like question after taking every set meal order; “Large drink, large fries sir?” I’ve taken to specifying “small” but they ignore that and still pose the question.
