This McDonald’s Employee Just Stood Up For All Fast Food Workers

As a society, we tend to look up to people like lawyers, doctors, astronauts, actors and musicians, since we consider those professions to be some of the hardest to be successful at. Adversely, we associate lower-paying jobs with laziness and poverty, a habit we are all likely guilty of. Well, one man in particular got sick and tired of the bullshit.

Mike Waite, a young man living in Edinburgh, Scotland, and working at a local McDonald’s, was pushed over the edge recently after one too many people criticized him for his work. Maintaining composure and refraining from cursing, Mike put into words what many fast food employees think and feel in their hearts in regards to the work they do.

Crunkin’ Cronuts: World’s Most Hipster Pastry Finally Goes Mainstream

cronuts

It’s not as if being the most hyped-up bakery item in the history of forever isn’t already “mainstream,” but there’s a difference between being like, reddit-mainstream and being Buzzfeed-mainstream, yannowhatImean?

Less than two months after Dominique Ansel blew up the internet with his infamous deep fried donut-croissant hybrid, Dunkin’ Donuts locations in both South Korea and the Philippines have now commercialized the monstrosity overseas. Dubbed the “New York Pie Donut” in Seoul and the “Donut Croissant” in Manila, these chain-born imposters are hardly the first cronut knock-offs to make their way abroad, but they are probably the first steps to viably diluting and mass-producing the beauty of the original on a global scale. In other words, pretty freaking sweet!

Soon we’ll have Cronut cupcakes and Cronut ice cream and Cronut coffee creamers. People will name their kids “Cronut” and those kids will grow up to bully everyone named “Doissant.” And on and on and so on and so forth until somebody finally stands up and shouts to the high heavens, “For the love of God can we stop talking about the Cronut?!” And of course we’ll just ignore him until we find something new to obsess over. I mean, old as they are, Sriracha and bacon and nutella are still around folks. This is going to be a long and bumpy ride.
