McDonald's worker reveals why the ice-cream machine is 'broken' so often

Something to remember next time you get denied your ice cream!

An ex McDonald's worker has gone viral on Twitter after claiming to know the 'real reason' why their ice-cream machines break so often. 

We've all been in that situation before - you rock up to McDonald's, eagerly wanting a soft serve - only to be told the machine is currently broken. Writing on Twitter the man said "By the way, I used to work in McDonalds."

"The ice cream machine was never broke, it just takes 3 hours to clean so we used to say it was broke so we didn’t have to serve you lot."

As you can imagine, there has been a huge reaction online...

"I’m copying this information so the next time McDonalds does that I will show them this tweet." one wrote.

"Question is, why are they making machines for fast food chains that take 3 hours to clean?" asked another.

McDonald's have not yet replied to the man's Tweets.
