Employee Shows Off $7,000 McDonald's Order She Dealt With In Wild Video

You may recall that a couple of years ago, Popeye's employees were being run ragged by the unexpected popularity of its then-new chicken sandwich.

But while that was a special case in which customer demand became overwhelming, it's also true that you never really know when a staggering order will come along that changes everyone's whole day whether they work at Starbucks or McDonald's.

Indeed, if someone wants 22 drinks or $700 worth of food, they instantly become the stuff of nightmares for both the workers and any other customer hoping to be served that day.

But as true as it is that both of those orders sound stressful enough to make someone quit, it's hard to even fathom where you'd begin to deal with the gargantuan request that one McDonald's employee recently reported.

On November 10, a McDonald's employee named Brittani Marie Curtis posted a video to TikTok detailing an order that sounds impossible.

As we can see here, this meant that she and her coworkers would only have four hours to make 1,600 McChicken sandwiches, 1,600 double cheeseburgers, and 3,200 cookies for an order with an estimated value of $7,000.

And since she figured this claim was a little hard to believe on its own, she showed off several boxes that were filled to the brim with the sandwiches in question.

Unsurprisingly, the caption of her video read, "No lie, ya girl is TIRED!"

Since it's easy to lose track of how any sandwiches you've made when you've got that many on order, WSB-TV reported that Curtis and her coworkers had to count them by sets of 20 to keep them straight.

The ordering system also wasn't made to handle an order that big, so Curtis had to enter it in as multiple $500 transactions.

As for who could possibly need a 6,400-item McDonald's order, Curtis revealed in the video's comments that the order came from a prison in Perry, Georgia.

Indeed, this prison was close enough to her restaurant that they've reportedly done a lot of business in the past.

It's unclear whether they've ever placed an order this large before, but Curtis said this go-around was unusual in one unfortunate way.

As she put it, "They're very credible. It's usually never such short notice though."

It's unknown as to why this truckload of food was needed so quickly, but the prison apparently paid in advance for the massive undertaking.

You'd think there would be hardly any food left after that one.
