I have a couple of sausage and egg McMuffins 3 or 4 times a year when I'm rushing off somewhere, and that's the limit of my McDonald's patronage. I will try a Grand Mac out of curiosity, when I was in the mood/stoned I used to like a Big Mac or 3 even though it's garbage

eta: of course I take the pickles out

I'm here! I just heard the news. I've been fighting an "airplane cold" since coming back from Shanghai. No burgers today.

I do approve of the new Big Macs. The bigger one for when you're really hOngry, when just a regular Big Mac won't do. The mini one is great when you have small children. Their little appetites can't handle a grown-up Big Mac, but you can train them on the mini version.

Good move for McDonald's.

Mac Jr is highly recommended. The double layer of Mac sauce is amazing.

Le grande Mac is just a big big mac

No Mac Jr. yet at my closest McD's. They do have self-service order kiosks. First time I've used one inside the U.S.

No offense to the average McDonald's customer, but ordering my food off a touch screen that hundreds of booger hooks have prodded is not my idea of hygiene

The people handling your food and taking your change are no cleaner, regardless of the signage posted.  And your order accuracy will increase; if not, it's because of the person entering the order.

I don't eat much fast food. I assume that's one of those cool machines with every flavor imaginable? I've used one once (then washed my hands before I ate )

The people handling your food are much cleaner than those screens will be.  But regardless, those people are still going to be handling your food.  The screens, though, add an additional point of failure when it comes to hygiene.

While I am a bit OCD about touching those dirty screens, I do like that the screens wont get your order wrong. 

But hey, at the McDonalds here, they hired a guy with some sort of mental disability to take orders in the drive through.  They trained him for about a year, but he is now better than 99% of the order takers in drive-throughs, IMO.  I think it's because he cares more and takes his job more seriously than some others and also probably doesn't goof off or anything.

My hands touch doorknobs, elevator buttons, etc., all day long. I'm not dead yet. Anyway, I could carry alcohol wipes with me, just in case the touchscreen at McDonald's is infected with Ebola.

  Coke Freestyle delivers Vanilla Coke. Vanilla Coke is best coke.

True, I don't think I've had any problems with the order taking kiosks.  

That said, I have a problem with the ones that are at tables as they tend to get dirty.  
Also, those small stores that have iPads using square or whatever they use.  They want me to sign using my finger on their dirty screens.  Please no.  I know it's all in the head, but whatever.

  Then don't carry or handle cash if you are worried about dirty.

It's a mental thing. When I'm signing the screen, I can feel the boogers an saliva and whatever it is that people leave behind on screens. I don't feel it on money. Money doesn't bother me at all, though I very rarely use cash. I've not used an ATM in a decade, but that's out of convenience.

I am more freaked out by cashiers and food servers who wear disposable gloves that are visibly dirty but they are keeping their own hands clean. Barf.

Also people who touch their heads or hair while serving or preparing food. ewww...and long fingernails. and public restrooms and drinking fountains and courtesy phones.

Many toll takers on the Massachusetts Turnpike did that glove thing. No more filthy gloves giving change and no more of their crappy attitudes are the two best things about the toll booths being torn down last week.

Most people doesn't mind having their dog/cat licking their face either.

  LOL. I'm so old my appetite is a lot less. Truly the breakfast sandwiches are now hors d'oeuvres size.

As far as I know, they are the same size as they were in the 90's when I worked there.

  Hey, I want to thank you that now I am freaked out about finger-signing on screens. Just now I had to sign for a delivery on a touchscreen and I could feel something crusty on the surface. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!!
