As a kid bringing McDonald’s for lunch makes you look cool. As an adult bringing McDonald’s for lunch makes you look gross.

>I reference McDonalds a lot cause I go to McDonalds. I love the silence that follows that statement — like I just admitted to subordinate dog fighting or something, “How could you? McDonalds?” It’s fun telling people you go to McDonalds. They’re always give you that look like, “Ah Oh. I didn’t know I was better than you?” No one admits going to McDonalds. They sold six billion hamburgers a day. There’s only 300 million on this country. It’s like, “Hmm… I’m not a calculus teacher, but I think everyones lying.” Have you ever been to McDonalds, and you see a friend for a second? You’re like, “Oh crap.” Eventually you are like, “Hey, Hey, What’s going on?” They’re like, “I’m just here for the 99 cents ATM. What are you doing here Jim?” >”I’m just meeting a hooker. Certainly not eating here. That’s for sure. Yeah, he should be here by now.” ~Jim Gaffigan

Apologies upfront for not addressing the actual showerthought. But thought I’d share this anyway: Had the privilege of taking a holiday to Indonesia a couple years back. Got talking with a taxi driver about food (because I’m obsessed with food and I figured being in another country, it was a good opportunity to get a different perspective). He was telling me about how he worked from like 6am till 1am driving so he wasn’t home a lot to be with his son, who he loved to death. We drove past a McDonald’s and his eyes lit up: “Do you eat a lot of McDonald’s?” He was really excited and me, being an ignorant tourist from a wealthy country, couldn’t understand why he was so excited by this. “Every year I try and take my son to McDonald’s, it’s his favourite and he’s a very good boy and I don’t get to see him a lot so I like to treat him. On his birthday I bring him home a cheeseburger and wake him up in the middle of the night.” He was so proud and it was the most wholesome shit ever. In that moment I was torn between hating how the privileged abuse their bodies by eating that shit on the regular, and hating the assholes wealthy enough to do something about it. (Edit: Old MacDonald had a hard time with grammar.)

In India, McDonald’s gives you elite status.

The social stigma of eating fast food has definitely grown over the last generation.

Gross??? What’s wrong with eating McDonald’s for lunch as an adult?
