Police Officer Shares Emotional Video After Being 'Too Nervous' To Eat McDonald's Food
The video, which - full disclosure - was shared by a Pro-Donald Trump Twitter account, shows the police office sitting in her car describing an anxiety inducing experience that she'd had trying to get hold of an English Muffin meal that morning.
She first explained how she pulled up to the first window and ordered the aforementioned muffin, as well as a hash brown and a coffee, then was made to wait for ages before she could receive her order at the next window.
In the clip, the woman said: "So, I pull forward and a girl comes out with my coffee - just the coffee.
"And she hands it to me, and I had my window down, and that's all she hands to me was the coffee.
"So I told her, I said, 'Don't bother with the food because right now I'm too nervous to take it'... right now I'm too nervous to take a meal from McDonald's."
Then, getting even more emotional, she discusses how people haven't been thanking police officers as much as they would do.

This is a clear reference to the ongoing protests against police forces around the world in the aftermath of the killing of 46-year-old George Floyd at the end of last month.
Floyd died after Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin restrained him by kneeling on his neck for nearly nine minutes on May 25.
Chauvin has since been charged with Floyd's murder, and three officers who were also present at the scene have been charged with aiding and abetting murder.
All four have been removed from their positions on the police force, but protests about the death of Floyd, and surrounding the wider point of systematic racism in many countries around the world have continued on.
Meanwhile, back in the drive-thru, the emotional police officer continued: "I don't know what's going on with people nowadays, but please just give us a break!
"I don't know much more of this I can take! I've been in this for 15 years and I've never felt such anxiety about waiting for McDonald's food!
"So just have a heart, and if you see an officer, just tell them thank you!"
