why i got a job at mcdonald’s:
i spend a lot of time with bankers, lawyers, internet freaks, corporate wonks, and other people living strange lives.Â as a good marketing guy, that’s a bad thing.Â and as a practicing anti-consumerist, that’s a bad thing.Â i got a job at mcdonald’s to help get back in touch with the real world.Â also, after over 6 grueling years in the internet whirlwind, i wanted to experience a profitable, well-oiled, multi-billion-dollar machine. andÂ i deserved a break today.
