A Chick-fil-A employee went viral on TikTok after he posted a video about working a 13-hour shift after making 500 peach milkshakes.

In a five-second clip, user Michael (@m_adams40) shows a register screen of him clocking out. The overlay reads, “clocking out of your 13-hour shift after making 500 peach milkshakes.” Then, the camera shifts to the floor and zooms on the mat, with Michael whimpering.
