During McD's Monopoly season, I just look for Monopoly Stickers in the trash, people often throw prizes away without even peeling for a look. I do this every year, occasionally once in a blue moon, I may find a real prize sticker, but I generally am interested in free treat stickers, like free drink, free fries, and give the excess food item prizes to folks I see on the street. I have yet to see a single McD person say anything to me for digging around in their trash cans in front of their customers. One of their patrons said of my actions "Now that's what I call diligence."
yeah, I do the same thing, but I don't go rooting through stuff if it looks dirty. usually I just keep an eye out for an unpeeled sticker to buy myself a free frenchfry or something. I too give them out to the homeless or needy if I have no use for them at hte moment.
Same here, if its that dirty, I avoid it, I usually don't all the way to the bottom or if in stuff that's nasty. I am far more likely to find a $100 bill on the floor of the Walmart than I am of finding a cash prize sticker for that amount, I know, I've found a $100 bill at walmart on three different occasions since I been working there, and have yet to even find a single $50 prize stamp for the monopoly game.
LMAO! That's what do at my workplace. Our Walmart has a McDonald's in the front. I buy my large coke there each day, then refill it as needed for my whole shift. The cart crew does that, so technically we do spend all day at the fast food joint and use those free refills all day.
Yup, we see regulars at McD, we spend our breaks or lunch talking to, mainly older generations and active military both US and US Allies, good times learning about their homelands and their cultures, so our McD is a school of the world when military come visit. We attract regular customers and we occasionally learn new things, including surprising new things.
lol I work at a McDonalds and I can honestly say that no one behind the counter really pays attention to that. Now try to fill a clear water cup with dark soda and I guarantee a manager will notice.... So long as you stand in front of the counter.
