Anaconda, Food, and Homeless: 4G7:17 What is the most money you have seen someone spend at McDonald's? Elysia Marie, Staff Researcher R Updated Nov 8 Upvoted by Benedict Hales, former Crew at McDonald's I worked at McDonald's for a few years and I remember getting a call for 100 McDoubles (1$ each), 100 small fries (1$ each) and 50 McChickens (1$ each). The whole order after tax came out to around 300$. My manager believed it was a prank call and told them that they would have to come in and pay before any food was made and it would take an hour to make since we were in the middle of a lunch rush Fifteen minutes later two guys show up You and Sanjay Vijaykumar upvoted this 47:17 y manager tax came out to aroun believed it was a prank call and told them that they would have to come in and pay before any food was made and it would take an hour to make since we were in the middle of a lunch rush Fifteen minutes later two guys show up claiming that they want to pay for the order and that they would come back to pick it up. Needless to say, the grill people were overwhelmed but were able to bust out all the sandwiches with help from other crew members. After they came back, a co-worker had to ask them what this all was for. The guys claimed that they were going to pass them out to homeless people around downtown San Diego. I was moved and have not forgotten about it since. 23.1k Views View Upvoters View Sharers You and Sanjay Vijaykumar upvoted this This really took some turn
