Most people can relate to the convenience of grabbing a Big Mac or some Nuggets from McDonald's when they don't feel like cooking.
However, if you're thinking of using the drive-thru instead of going inside the restaurant, you might want to reconsider.
A McDonald's employee has lifted the veil on something that many drive-thru users are unaware of, leaving many shocked.
Deja Zimm, who goes by the username @get0utm3swamp on TikTok, has revealed that the person taking your order can hear everything you say—even when they're not actively taking your order.
She warns that you should be careful about what you say while waiting in the drive-thru to place your order.
"Just so you know, as a McDonald's employee, I can still hear you after you've placed your order. I only stop hearing you when you drive away from the speaker. So, turn down your music and nasty talk," she says.
Deja claims that she has overheard many things she probably shouldn't have while working at McDonald's. She also revealed that this is not exclusive to McDonald's; it applies to any place with a drive-thru.
"This is not just for McDonald's. It applies to any place with a drive-thru," she says. Moreover, she adds that both Starbucks and McDonald's have cameras in their drive-thrus. "Starbucks can see you on the camera, and McDonald's takes a picture of your car," she says in her TikTok video.
Deja also mentions that she has heard customers speak ill of her multiple times.
"Yes, I love drama, but not when they say bad things about me. I listen because I'm curious. It just hurts my feelings when they talk about me, even though I'm just doing my job," she says.
She also notes that she can hear customers before she even starts taking their orders, advising people to be cautious about what they say in a drive-thru, whether it's before or after placing an order.
