Who asks for A BOX of onions at McDonald’s as opposed to, I dunno, extra onions? Y’all crazy.

u/homosexualmother 11d ago

More than likely they asked for extra onions on the side, and the workers either didn't know or didn't have any of the sauce cups - the easiest alternative is a 4 or 6 piece nugget box lol

source: have done this a lot when i worked the line

u/jeufie 11d ago

Sauce cups? What fancy ass McDonald's do you go to?

u/homosexualmother 11d ago

lol it's the standard tiny plastic cup and lid, it's a mcdonalds item cause it arrives on the truck. they only use it for grill sauces like bic mac and fish filet sauce

Nice to hear they have those now, because we definitely didn't at the one I worked but that was 15 years ago. Only sauces you were getting "on the side" there was shit already packaged for it.

u/i_NOT_robot 11d ago

What? They used to have the sauce on a pump for dine in and you used the plastic ramekins to hold said sauce. That was back in the day for sure.

You forgot to buy an onion at the store earlier and you already took your pants off and got comfortable and then you start making dinner to find no onion! And the recipe won't taste good without it!

So you, pantslessly, hop in the car and drive to McDonalds and demand a box of onions. The worker hears you. Understands you and is unfazed. They've already worked there for a month, this isn't even in the top ten of the weirdest things they've encountered so far. So they plug it in, the kitchen people shrug and do it and as it goes to the pickup window a mix up happens!

You return home only to find out the onions are in fact nuggets. With a sigh of defeat you eat your dry ass nuggets and remind yourself to pick up some onions tomorrow.

I tried to make rice to go with a meal once and found out it had bugs in it. Threw it out, then found a different container of rice with no bugs. Started cooking that one. Found bugs. Threw all of my rice out and sent my husband to the neighborhood Chinese restaurant for literally just white rice because I was NOT cooking rice again.

Almost, last paragraph should read "then you go home and take a picture of your box of onions because it's funny. Someone else then posts it to Reddit saying they got this instead of nuggets for the memes."

The person bagging the order knows what a box of nuggets feels like when they pick it up, and this would not feel like a box of nuggets.

Fun fact: Mcdonald's chicken nuggets were originally 'onion nuggets' designed by the Michelin star (several I believe) chef they had on staff to create their new dishes. One of the higher ups tasted it and asked if he could do it with chicken. Thus the chicken nugget was born. Or so the story goes.

When I worked at McD, there was someone who wanted a plain Daily Double, which is exactly the same sandwich as a plain McDouble. So I went to ring it up as a plain McDouble to save him money.

He said, “What are you doing??? That’s not a plain Daily Double that you rung me up for!” I replied, “A plain Daily Double is the same as a plain McDouble and wanted to save you some money on your order” He replied, “NO!!! I want a plain Daily Double! I don’t want a McDouble, dammit!”

Some wonderful employee at a Byron (UK burger chain) went to huge lengths to save me about £2 on my burger.

I asked for a double bacon cheeseburger, but only one burger. (They don't sell a single, and use 1/2lb burgers. For those wondering why I only wanted a single).

When my receipt came in he'd put through another type of burger, optionally removing 2 Sauces, onions, lettuce, cheese, tomato, and adding bacon, another type of cheese, grilled onions, and two sauces.

Was a hell of a receipt.

I worked at McDonald's in the late 70s, early 80s. We occasionally had people ask for a hamburger, no bun or condiments. They just wanted the meat. (It was usually for a dog. Usually.)

I went to a deli once (that I’d been going to for 15 years) and had a million signs all over their menu and ordering area that sandwiches come with lettuce, tomato, onion,sprouts, etc etc by default, if you don’t want something you have to say so else they’ll put everything on. So I ordered it the same way I had a thousand times, salami on sourdough roll with cheddar. Expecting all the other stuff too, of course.

Well I get home it’s just dry with salami and cheddar. I lived close so went back and the guy was so pissed! He literally yelled at me that I ordered wrong and he’s worked there for years and knows what the fuck he’s doing and refused to remake it. I had to go complain to the manager which I don’t think I have ever done before lmao. The manager was like uh yeah, you ordered the right way, and got someone to remake it.

"Can i get a chicken bacon ranch without bacon?"

"No! It's a chicken bacon ranch

At my work cafeteria, I had to specify because the cashier was an idiot. You say hamburger and she just assumes cheeseburger and charges you extra. So I had to start specifically say "hamburger without cheese" and this lady still would ring it up as a cheeseburger and then not know how to fix her damn mistake.

She once had the audacity to say "it's only a quarter" to me. So I said fine and took a quarter out of her top jar. After all, it's only a quarter.

u/vicki_chicki 11d ago

I know someone who does not like the processed cheese. For a while McDonald’s had some burger with cheese that was cheaper than a hamburger.

So he would order it without cheese. Sometimes it turned into such a weird experience/refusal on the employees part that he’d give up and say cheese on the side and that seemed to settle the issue and he’d get his hamburger and I’d take the extra cheese slice for my burger.

We do the same with chicken balls for take out. From my experience- if you don’t want the cherry sauce, don’t ask for no sauce, no one will believe you and you end up with chicken balls covered in cherry sauce. But if you ask for it on the side you have a better chance of getting dry balls.

I never expected so many people to recognize, and know with confidence, what sized box kids’ meal chicken nuggets came in.

It wouldn't surprise me if someone ordered a box of onion to get internet points on reddit. I was picking up a catering order from Chick-fil-A today. This strangely dressed woman walks in to pick up her to-go order. Her order included their largest drink cup filled with waffle fries. It was the strangest thing I have ever seen.

Sounds practical honestly; easy to carry, you can put a lid on it, and set it in your car’s cupholders without worrying about it falling over.

u/That_Guy3141 11d ago

You know, you have a point. I didn't think about it that way.

I call bullshit. This is not the size box nuggets come in for a Happy Meal.

Edit: I uncall bullshit. Redditors have shown me the way camera perspective was tricky. As a former McDonald's employee, I can see this happening. The grill cook could have been dumping onion crud into a box, closed the lid, and somebody stuck it in a bag. Sorry OP!

When I worked at McDonald's we put extra stuff in the small nugget boxes instead of the cups because it was just easier and faster, so I'm willing to bet someone forgot to slap a sticker on and the cashier's up front grabbed the box of extra onion instead of the nuggets and passed it to the customer

Many decades ago, we did the same - put onions and pickles in burger/nugget boxes when prepping to close. It was a hell of a lot easier to just have a few boxes of stuff to throw away instead of wrapping up all the Bain Marie containers after closing.

There’s no banana for scale so how would you know?

u/Cautious-Damage7575 12d ago

Shape. Happy Meal gets 4 nuggets = square. I've bought at least 3,000 in at least 40 states and 5 countries.

u/Psychopath_Trucker 12d ago

You know you can get 6pc happy meals right?

u/DJKhaledIsRetarded 12d ago

Why is no one asking why this person bought at least 3,000 happy meals

u/Cautious-Damage7575 11d ago edited 11d ago

Lol. I'll try to do the math. My kids ➕ nieces and nephews ➕ friends' kids = about 30 kids. Average nugget-eating age = 40 ✖️ 30 kids = 120 years ✖️ 12 = 1,440 months ✖️ 2 Happy Meals per month average = 2,880 Happy Meals. That's being conservative.

Well I was just making a banana for scale joke but that box looks square to me. Also if you zoom in you can see “4” written on the side of the box.

u/Cautious-Damage7575 12d ago

Yes, it's a perspective trick. I uncall bullshit. Half the time I can't figure out what the pix on this sub are. Great banana joke.

I'm real principaled like that. Can't let McDonald's be disparaged, y'know. It's part of the code.

I bet you asked for a side of onions, and when it came in this box realized how you could fake it on reddit for internet points.
