Bloke left absolutely fuming after having to wait eight minutes for McDonald's order

A dad has spoken out against McDonald's after waiting eight minutes for his three-item order.
Not to make it a competition, but I've definitely had to wait longer than eight minutes for a fast-food order, or maybe it just felt like that because I was swaying around at 2:00am after a heavy Friday night out.
However, we all know the feeling of being hangry and craving some McDonald's.
On Monday, 13 February, Imran Patel took his children to the Shaw Cross branch of the fast food chain in West Yorkshire.
Looking to treat his kids, the father was left outraged when he was left waiting eight minutes for his small order.
To add fuel to the fire, Imran stood waiting as delivery drivers swanned in to pick up their deliveries.
He told Metro: "I wouldn’t have minded but it was completely empty in there too. You look over to the area where they’re preparing the food for the delivery drivers and everyone is rushing around getting things out as quickly as possible.
"It feels like if you actually go in to the restaurant you’re kind of ignored, like the delivery orders are more important."
What felt like 15 minutes later to Imran - which was really eight minutes, confirmed when the restaurant's CCTV footage was reviewed - the father-of-two finally got his order.
But what was Imran's order? Well, the order consisted of two McFlurries and a milkshake.
"With it just being drinks it should only take five minutes for them to get it ready," the father argued.
Eight minutes may not seem like a lot of time to wait, but with two children in tow gasping for their Monday McFlurry treat, the dad may've had to listen to a chirping of, 'Is it ready yet,' around two times a minutes.
In those eight minutes, Imran and his children could've also been doing a whole host of other fun activities on their treat day too, from watching the trailer to Puss in Boots 2, brushing their teeth four times or listening to 'Baby Shark' four times in a row.
Although, between waiting in McDonald's for eight minutes smelling wafts of food or listening to 'Baby Shark' four times in a row, it's debatable which is worse.
A spokesperson for McDonald's told Metro: "Customer satisfaction is a priority of ours and we place great emphasis on providing a fantastic experience to everyone who orders at McDonald’s, be it in-store, through the drive-thru or via our delivery partners.
"In any instance that we don’t meet those high standards, we’d encourage customers to speak with the restaurant team to deal with their concerns immediately."
