    Mcdonalds Poison

    My daugters said to me this morning, can we have some money please, we are having a freinds outing for breakfast at mc donalds.

    Just some girls from her school, I guess, but the vision of these girls being indoctrinated with fast food doctrine by the Mcdonalds corp is playing hell with my brain.
    So far they have resisted the fat laden fast food route, mother has so far taught them, by example the value of good food.
    I know in New Zealand, we used to have plenty of healthy options available,
    I had never eaten Fast food until I was 25 yrs old, so in my youth Macdonald and KFC wasn't an option. its changed now, mcdonalds are prevalent.
    My last visit was full of fat arse bitches that I wouldn't touch with the proverbial barge pole.
    Excuse the spelling, my spell checker is fucked.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    Good on you. Keep em' away from that shit. My m8 has managed to convince his young one about it and they are fine and have never asked for it. Once kids get a taste for it they can become hooked.

    Thai's are embracing western ways as quickly as possible for better or worse. Give 'em another 10 years and they will all have fat asses just like their western counterparts. I have not had Mcd's since I got here 7 months ago. I really miss their ice mocha.

    Just look at the teen oriented music videos in Thailand. It gets more sexual by the week even compared to just 4 or 5 years ago. Now it's almost as sexual as western music videos. Which by the way is perfectly OK with me gives me a reason to actually watch Thai TV.
    I'm not saying it was Aliens, but it was Aliens!

    McDonalds is a clean, air conditioned, and "cool" hangout for kids. Has nothing to do with the quality of food they serve, otherwise, there would be few customers.

    Well said misskit. They are going to be "seen" not savour the delicious food.

    Give them a packed lunch to take.

    But there is always the problem of running into someone "Smegish" hanging around.

    Breakfast at McDonalds is probably the best time to go. Eggs, Hash browns and coffee.

    In my opinion there would be more nutrition in the wrapping that is around the crap they serve than the so called food itself ! I wouldnt touch the shit with a bargepole .

    My 14 year old twins go there very occasionally with schoolfriends - but they only eat the chicken and rice, they don't like the other stuff.

    macdonalds is what it is, sugar, salt, fat and meat of dubious origin.

    for those in desperate need of a quick meal though, what are the alternatives.

    thai street food is probably equally as toxic, deep fried poor quality low grade meats fried in fat that rarely gets changed, sausages that could have been lying around for days,food prepared in less than hygienic conditions and exposed to flies, pollution, coughing, nose picking, rats, cats and dogs. 20 years ago the street food was mostly home produced and sold by people who had pride in what they sold, these days its all mass produced using the worst, the cheapest and the unhealthiest ingredients and cooked and sold by people with little interest in food.

    when hunger strikes on the streets of bangkok, i know where i would rather eat.

    Eggs , I can do easily, hash browns, in the freezer, coffee tastes like shit. in fact only the buns and the "meat patties" the buns I can get at big c or my mate marmite can do better.
    its the same all over the world, "maccas is cool" the cunts have successfully indoctrinated the western world.

    Kudos to jollibee, same shit but at least its home grown.

    I think I have had two burgers from them in the last 6 years and that was because I was in airports and it was the cheapest option but still over priced. I never eat there in the UK...

    The attitude of some folks on here is very questionable.

    If you don't make your kids go to Maddonalds for great food and a real fun time, what sort of parent are you?

    Kids are supposed to eat shit and be fat - they are the next generation queueing up to line the pockets of the shitsellars.

    Come on folks, let's show we are good citizens - send your kids for a "Happy Meal".

    Starbucks has very high standards for their water and their coffee. I worked for Starbucks for a while when I was in Vancouver.

    It's people from all different countries that have made McDonalds what it is. In Canada, I knew people who would eat McDonalds almost every day. I don't eat it and I haven't since I was in my teens and at a younger cousin's birthday party. McDonalds addicts would question me about why I don't like it, as though there was something wrong with me.

    OP, if it's just to go out with friends once in a while, there's no harm. As misskit said, it has AC, it's clean, and you know what you're going to get. It's far better than a street side Thai stand with questionable hygiene standards and vehicle exhaust and heat blasting into your face.

    Bad evil shit that McCrap.

    McCas where everywhere in China, the main one in Shanghai was like a 5 star hotel packed Full with punters.

    We would go there and buy there Hot chocolate on a cold day, that was OK.

    I was amazed at how flash it was, business was very good.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    The occasional burger from McDs will not kill them. So long as its a once in a while thing. Completely banning them just means they will be in them as soon as they are off the leash.

    As with everything, moderation is the key.

    thats what they want, every one to eat the same shit every where, only places that have resisted this american food coloisation was Jolli bee and the Aust one, forget their name now, same crap but better value.

    what was the name of the american bloke who did a film diary of him eating nothing but Mc food for a month? Dr said it was putting his health at risk so he had to stop before the month was out. Think it was called super size me? This is one called that, thnk it's the one, Mc food is not healthy to eat more than once in a while. I try never ever to go into one, or Starbucks
