    I`m sorry, but this has NOTHING on Burger King`s Whopper wrappers that have the big circle in the middle with something like "place sandwich here" written in them.

    But hey, it IS fast food, you know. Can`t expect rocket scientists to be working there...even in this economy.

    I have never seen one of those. But they don`t expand when they heat them. the toaster has teflon conveyors in the vertical toaster that kinda squishes them a bit.

    Why is anyone surprised?

    For a high volume highly branded product consistency is key, especially if the product is very much like competing products and is of merely adequate quality.

    So you take steps to ensure the product is always the same. It`s particularly important if the product is assembled from components on the fly by whoever is unfortunate enough to not have a better job, i.e. like a fast food burger.

    It`s somewhat like mass market beer. It will never be particularly good because the main priority is consistency for branding purposes. It`s relatively easy to make lakefulls of adequate beer that`s always exactly the same if you aim for adequacy rather than excellence.

    I think this is kinda similar to how Target has these little folding boards that help us fold clothes. It gives step by step instructions on how to fold clothes. But, they must be folded in a certain way. Nobody uses the folding boards.

    I`m not a McDonalds expert by any means. But it appears to me that this tool would more than likely be used by the manufacturer of the buns to see if they are within protocol to ship to the "restaurant".

    Mostly because it looks too complicated to be used by the average McDonalds employee.

    It`s a European scale. They probably don`t have these in America because it`d be a waste of money. American McDonald`s workers strike me as a tad too lazy to use such instruments.

    @beccab86,
    It`s not a european-only burger tool. If it were then it wouldn`t list both "royale" and "quarter". as for lazy americans, when was the last time you saw an american working at mcdonalds?

    @kangoala,
    I wasn`t making any assumptions - it says "McDonald`s Europe" right on the card. And I think you may have McDonald`s employees confused with 7/11 employees. It`s a common mistake... even here.

    What`s the point. They`re just going to squash the $#!+ out of it when they wrap it.
