Dad fumes after he has to wait eight minutes for McDonald’s grub

A dad was left furious by fast food restaurant McDonald's after he had to wait a whopping eight minutes for his grub.

An agonising wait for Imran Patel, 46, left the dad and his two kids thoroughly frustrated as they found themselves in what must have felt like an eternal wait.

The 46-year-old had taken his youngsters for a Monday treat and ordered two McFlurry's and a milkshake, but was left waiting for a whole eight minutes.

The apparent disaster in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire left the father-of-two furious, with Uber Eats drivers and Just Eat delivery people were able to push ahead, the Metro reports.

Imran first believed he had been left waiting for an agonising 15 minutes, but a review of CCTV footage showed the dad had waited for eight minutes.

Speaking of the horror wait, the 46-year-old said: "I'd only gone in there for two McFlurrys and a milkshake, with it just being drinks it should only take five minutes for them to get it ready.

"It feels like if you actually go in to the restaurant you’re kind of ignored, like the delivery orders are more important."

Those extra three minutes have certainly taken their toll, with the dad claiming the store was completely empty aside from the delivery drivers coming and going.

He does not believe he should have had to wait so long for his food, and that the drivers may have something to do with his wait.

Imran further believes that the presence of the delivery drivers mean his order fell on deaf ears and he was completely ignored as staff filled out other orders.

A spokesperson for the Golden Arches said: "Customer satisfaction is a priority of ours and we place great emphasis on providing a fantastic experience to everyone who orders at McDonald’s, be it in-store, through the drive-thru or via our delivery partners.

"In any instance that we don’t meet those high standards, we’d encourage customers to speak with the restaurant team to deal with their concerns immediately."
