“If you’re really short on time, don’t count on chicken tenders or grilled chicken sandwiches or salads being made quickly at Burger King. I remember that the tenders took forever to cook and we didn’t really make them that often, so most times they were made to order. Same for the grilled chicken,” said shmandameyes


“At our Subway, the ‘oven roasted’ chicken was actually boiled in a microwave,” said Hotpotabo. 

“Tuna sandwiches. 80% mayonnaise,” said karma_virus.


“When I worked there in Canada, McDonald’s grilled chicken could sit there for a long time. So can the filet o fish. Usually they’re on top of it, but shit happens. I’ve done a four hour shift and just forgot to throw out the old grilled chicken and make new ones because nobody ordered it, and it had already went past the timer when I got on so there was no beeping to remind me. It sounds stupid and it was. We’re all human and humans are dumb, though,” said CaseyTwist.


“All Starbucks food is reheated frozen food. Ridiculous how little people realize that. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste good, it’s just not fresh at all and incredibly overpriced,” said likeabaker
