They can install a device that detects facial expression, tone of voice, how hard you mash the buttons. A spittle device can be installed near final production to keep the fast food experience authentic.

Good. Around here all their employees can't speak decent English and you are lucky if something on your order isn't messed up. I have called and complained at one and the manager said if they are waiting on customers they speak English. I told her at that point they need to be a le to speak it fluently because you can't understand half of what they say and they also need to be able to UNDERSTAND English. Needless to say, I no longer go to that location as about every employee is Hispanic. I go to the other one where your chances of getting your order taken by an English speaking person is 50/50.

I would love to see this over here...but then again I would love to see more American CITIZENS getting jobs.

The drawback of this system...having a non English spreaking person try to read and prepare the order...more trouble.

It is disgusting because here they come on the store where o work part time to cash their checks. I have yet to see one with a NC drivers license. They all have ID cards issued by Mexico or Nicaragua or some other south American country.

McD's isn't unique. Drive thru a Wendy's in the states and it's possible that your order will be taken by a person in a call center thousands of miles away:

Wendy's uses call centers for drive-thru orders

They've been doing this for years, and I think some of these call centers are located overseas.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


I'm not proud. I'll spring for the occasional Big Mac. The people in front of me annoy me way more than the employees. You've always got some delray wanting to "special order" something like a fish sandwich with just a soupçon of mustard. Drives me nuts. Say "Number 3" and move on.

If you want something out of the norm, don't go someplace where you have to scream your order at a kid wearing a paper hat.

Yeah, the touch screen. No customization. And if you take longer than 15 seconds to punch in your order, it shocks you and shoves you out of the way. Sounds like a simple solution, to me.


As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Please! Pretty, pretty please can we have that installed?

I just noticed that this says Europe, but if it works there I'm sure they'll bring it to the U.S. shortly.

I didn't at first but either way if it happens in Europe then it won't be long till it happens here.
That's the way it usually goes anyway.
Not always but usually.

Amen.
