One British McDonald's location is making the drastic decision to ban anyone under the age of 18 from its premises after 5 pm as an apparent means to combat both verbal and physical abuse experienced by its staff.
Depending on where you find yourself, the life of a McDonald's is often not an easy one. Not only are customers starting to cotton onto the chain's secrets and game the system, but a particularly busy location can have some utterly insane rushes with orders that can only be filled by pure Herculean effort.
But of course, it's not always the number of customers that's the problem, but rather their attitude. The sad truth is that rude customers come with the territory, but there's a difference been them and the ones who actually make you feel like you're in danger.
And from the sounds of it, that's a problem that has affected one restaurant enough to take a drastic step in response. Like I said, it depends on where you find yourself.
