Picture this scenario. It's eight in the morning and the only thing that's giving you the strength to get through the workday is the thought of a hot coffee and a warm bagel with cream cheese. To ensure maximum slathering, you ask for extra cream cheese—just in case. You pay for your order and head straight to the office, unwrapping it with the fervor of a dehydrated man in the desert, only to discover that a terrible curse has been put upon you and your family.
That's what happened to Bryan Passifiume last week.
LOL what the hell, @McDonaldsCanada pic.twitter.com/mgfQb8juqv— 𝙱𝚛𝚢𝚊𝚗 𝙿𝚊𝚜𝚜𝚒𝚏𝚒𝚞𝚖𝚎 (@BryanPassifiume) February 25, 2020
Passifiume shared photos of the monstrosity he was served at a Canadian McDonald's on his Twitter page. It's safe to say that he certainly got what he asked for, but "extra" doesn't necessarily constitute "the entire tub."
"I ordered extra cream cheese as they usually just apply it like butter, but this is clearly just an exercise in passive-aggressiveness," Passifiume commented. "How do I possibly eat this?"
Honestly, Bryan? We don't know. Nothing makes sense anymore.
So building security just came to my desk — some bigwigs from @McDonaldsCanada were downstairs, seeking an audience. Turns out they were hooking the Toronto Sun newsroom up with breakfast — featuring a pile of cream cheese bagels. #teammcds for the win! pic.twitter.com/ceAgPHyNu8— 𝙱𝚛𝚢𝚊𝚗 𝙿𝚊𝚜𝚜𝚒𝚏𝚒𝚞𝚖𝚎 (@BryanPassifiume) February 27, 2020
Fortunately, McDonald's took action when Passifiume's tweets made the rounds online. They ended up attempting to amend the situation by offering the entire Toronto Sun newsroom breakfast—including a pile of cream cheese bagels. Team McD's for the win, indeed.
