Last month, America's most trusted, beloved capitalist enterprise, McDonald's, announced it would be serving breakfast items all day long.
Though the news seemed too good to be true, customers believed Mickey D's because customers needed to believe Mickey D's. But just like anyone who ever suffered a major loss at the hands of the Hamburglar, the American people were played for fools.
Yes, breakfast is currently available all day, only the deal excludes hot, crispy hash browns past 10:30 am.
RIGHT? I KNOW.
A New York reporter for BuzzFeed, whose name sort of resembles that of the delicacy in question, broke the news, and no one is taking it well.
Does McDonald's not understand customers can't just slap fries on Egg McMuffins to enhance the textures of their meals? BECAUSE NEWS FLASH WE CAN'T.
All potatoes are not the same, yet at McDonald's, all potatoes are apparently cooked in the same fryer, and therein lies the issue. Former McDonald's manager Richard Adams told BuzzFeed attempting to fry both kinds of taters all day is simply too tall an order.
I'M SORRY. I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA, THE COUNTRY THAT PUT 12 MEN ON THE MOON.
McDonald's spokesperson Lisa McComb called the fryer tragedy a “restaurant configuration issue” and insisted,
If a location isn't able to offer hash browns at this point, that doesn't mean they never may offer them as more learning continues to happen… There may be another solution in the future.
In the event McDonald's is serious about improving profits, which reportedly dove 9 percent last year, the company may want to find a way to accommodate rampant tater grievances.
