THERE is nothing better than a McDonald’s drive-thru when you are really hungry and need to fix your golden arches.
But, you might want to think twice about what exactly you are saying in your car while browsing the fast food chain to grab your tasty goods.
A McDonald’s employee revealed exactly what happens with steering wheel controls in a video on TikTok and it wows people.
User @secretfitzz, known for breaking a whole host of McDonald’s secrets online, revealed that employees can hear every word – even when you think they’re not listening.
Sharing a video of them driving, they warned fast food lovers to be careful of their conversations in the car.
“The fact that people don’t know we can hear your convos even when we’re not talking to you while taking your order,” they posted.
They then revealed, “And we have a camera over the speaker that takes a picture of you so we know who owns the order.”
“Seeing pictures of random people made my day,” they joked.
Their video has been viewed over 723,000 times online, with thousands of shocked comments.
“Definitely not,” one person said, while another asked, “You’re kidding, aren’t you? “
A third threatened to boycott McDonald’s after the revelation, posting: “If that’s true, I’ll never go back.”
“New Fear Unlocked: Drive-thru,” said another.
Others said they found it hard to believe that employees could hear their personal conversations as they claimed that many workers had difficulty hearing commands properly through the speakerphone.

“How can you hear my convo when you can’t hear me screaming into the mic from two inches away,” one person joked.
Another asked why employees always ask customers if they received the correct order, if they can see their photos on the screen next to requested items.
The worker replied, “We know it’s your order, but we still have to ask, so if you’re still paying for the wrong order or your order is wrong, it’s yours and not us.”
Fabulous contacted a spokesperson for McDonald’s.
