You know what, Nicole? So McDonald's wasn't a good experience for you. So what? For most people it isn't the greatest thing, and they wouldn't want to stay there. But for some people, myself included, it's just about the best thing that's ever happened to them. I have my own plans for my future, and McDonald's isn't in them, but I love working there, and i love it so much that sometimes i will work for free because i love the environment, the people and the great fun we have. You may find this sick, but all I'm saying is that everybody's got their own personalities and needs and that could involve McDonald's.

As for goals achieved at McDonald's, if you do a good job, you get respected for it and you know it your self-confidence can rise dramatically. It may seem like a meaningless job, but if, let's say, during your shift, you weren't in the kitchen and the store couldn't run, how many customer's lives would be affected by that? A lot. So even the most trivial jobs do mean something, really.

You should realize that different things work for different people and learn to respect that.
