My sister invited my family out to McDonalds earlier this evening. We went, the kids had a happy meal and then played in the play place.
While we were sitting inside employees started gathering at the outside front of the store to smoke and eat food from the store. Right out front. In front of everyone. At one point 4 employees where outside carrying on and only 2 (from what we could see) were inside. The guy doing drive thru orders was even taking them from out there.
Now, we don't do fast food often, so maybe i'm ignorant, but is this normal these days? When I worked outside the home (8 years ago) we were never allowed to let the costumers see us smoke, eat, drink, chit-chat...we had to go around back or to a private area.
