A McDonald’s worker vents his frustrations over customers asking for “fresh food” in a viral TikTok.

TikTok user Mârio Scott (@cactusmvrkss) typically posts content about his job at McDonald’s for his 15,000 followers. This time, he filmed a skit involving a response he says he wishes he could tell customers whenever they demand “fresh” food.

The content creator starts off with what he claims he does say to customers.

“Hey, ma’am. Double cheeseburger, large fry?” he says. “Is my food fresh?” the customer asks, to which he responds with, “Yes, ma’am. Straight off the grease. Only for our customers.”

Then, he repeats the same scenario but this time shows how he would prefer to respond to customers.

Instead of being polite when they ask about the food being fresh, he sarcastically answers, “No, I cooked it, put it in the freezer, left it in for 12 minutes, and served it to you,” he says angrily. “Matter of fact, I left it in for 12 more minutes just to serve it to your dumbass. Dumb bitch. Take your damn food.”
