A fierce online debate has erupted after a New Zealand McDonald’s employee filmed himself quitting his job in the middle of his shift after he was asked to clean cooking equipment.
Tiktok user Fionn_McCallum posted his abrupt walk-out with the caption “They really thought I was going to clean that”.
“Hell no, I am not cleaning that, I ain’t cleaning that,” he said in the 26-second clip.
The fast food worker tells his manager that he quits. Angered by the announcement, the manager can be heard yelling at the crew member while his teammates beg him to stay.
“No! Get back here!” the manager is heard screaming while the crew member continues to walk out of the restaurant.
“I quit, I’m leaving Maccas [McDonald’s]. See you on the flip side bitch!” he said.
Footage of the stunning moment went viral, racking up 2.9 million views. Many were left divided over the surprise incident.
“I work at McDonald’s, I feel u,” a user wrote.
Others had little sympathy for the young man and didn’t believe the job was as bad as he made it out to be.
“Not even that bad it’s like 20 mins of work,” one user wrote.
“Kids don’t wanna work, lazy as hell,” a second person said.
Some users commented that they would have happily done the task without complaints.
“I loved dishes so much, it meant I didn’t have to work on orders,” one wrote.
