Too stressful.
Managers constantly shouting at you to get rid of the queue as fast as possible, customers having a go at you because their food wasn't ready immediately. If they have to wait in a queue or wait a few minutes for their food you will hear the line "I thought it was supposed to be fast food".
People forget that fast food employees have lives outside of work, that we're not robots and none of us want to work there, we don't get paid enough for the amount of verbal abuse we get from customers and staff. If you make a slight mistake someone will have a go at you then you're expected to put the fake smile back on immediately and serve the next customer who will probably be just as rude.

Make sure you can proficiently catch a happy meal box before your interview. You will be surprise tested by the manager who will jump out of his chair and throw a brick at you; if you can catch a brick, you can catch a happy meal!

It's quite simple actually. After breakfast, you should meditate and prepare yourself for the tsunami of verbal abuse you will face from customer and staff members alike during work hours. Once you arrive at work, you'll either get a Pepsi to the face which means you're on the till, a [full] mop bucket thrown at you which means you're on cleaning, or if you're really unlucky the manager will drag you kicking-and-screaming to the drive-thru where you will spend the next eight break-less hours being informed that you are a sub-human. And that's it, really.

I let Ronald McDonald down by dropping a customer's order. I couldn't face the shame of this, so I removed my McDonalds uniform, went home without saying a word and now I just sit in my attic all day having nightmares about Ronald.
