    You ought to be hilariously happy having been turned down by McDonalds. Try
    Burger King instead as it must be a lot more satisfying to sell a product
    that doesn't taste like it's been made in a paper mill. Even looks like
    it...

    Well. Now is the time to kiss McDonalds goodbye and never ever eat a
    'ham'burger again.

    Not only will you avoid BSE, you will also find the food you cook at home
    will taste better and you won't feel hungry 2 hours after eating a Big Mac.

    If you ever saw the inside of a meat-packing plant, you'd never eat beef
    again.

    Well, that's what the Amazonian Indians say..............although (given
    that Ronald Mc Donald is such a litigious little clown, let's all be clear
    that McDonalds were not responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Indians
    who were murdered in cold blood during Ranchero campaigns to clear their
    forest homeland in order to raise cattle for U.S hamburger consumption.

    The courts said so. So, naturally, it must be true...........

    Seeing as how South America is only some % of McDonald's total sources of
    hamburger, what % are we supposed to feel guilty? :)

    Surely, one death is too many?

    Some people say that there is blood on the burgers............but the Judge
    said that it was just ketchup (although I doubt if he had ever tried one)

    Not only is it hard to get a job in today's economy, but it is also hard to complete even the most basic of tasks, such as the assessment test on the employment application. The easiest way to view the best choices to the questions on the assessment is to go to:

    Hope this helps someone, and good luck getting a job!
