"The only sure way to double your money right now
is to fold it in half and put it back in your wallet."
- Rick Warren
McDonalds represents all the arguable evils of global capitalism. They will do everything to get your money. Here are some tips on how you can save money at McDo:
1. Don't go to McDonalds.
If you are already there, don't order anything.
2. Ask for more.
If you have to order anything, make sure to ask for more. More sugar, more creamer, more stirrer, more salt, more gravy, more pancake syrup, more tissue. Go find yourself a seat, then go back to the counter then ask for more. Keep on asking until they refuse to give you anymore, which usually doesn't happen. Bring home what you can't consume.
Coffee is refillable. They don't advertise that but it's true. You just have to insist.
When ordering drinks, ask the crew to fill the cup to the brink and not to put ice. If you want ice on your drink, order it on a separate cup.
When ordering fries, ask the crew to put more. Don't forget to always ask for a ketchup container. Don't put your ketchup on a tissue. Tissue contains bleach which is toxic.
3. Use and maximize McDo facilities.
Stay at McDo for as long as you can. Some McDo are open 24 hours with free internet. Try not to order anything. If you have to buy something, just buy coffee. If you want to study in McDo for long hours, invest in good pair of earplugs. They crank up the volume of their speakers whenever they want their customers to leave.
Don't leave your things unattended. McDonalds has a lot of incidences of theft. Remember this, "You can't trust a clown."
Hope this helps,
