I love going to McDonalds and I have to say everytime I go there I try to see how have they made things so the same standard is everywhere (like the salt shaker) or made things easier for their employees by reducing waste.
While I was in Scotland I decided to have a mcflurry and I saw the brilliance in that they use the spoon to stir the mcflurry. Here in Iceland if you have a flurry - called Bragðarefur in Icelandic. In iceland when you are making bragðarefur you put the icream and your preferred selected sweets into a bowl and use a machine to mix it and then you put it in a container. This results in the employee needing to wash both the machine and the container used to mix it in. As a former ice cream employee I can tell you that the most boring thing about making Bragðarefur is cleaning the machine. So maybe in a few years the icelandic ice cream shop owners will change to the mcdonalds way.
My husband had to take his shoes for repair while we were in scotland. I have to say I do love the place he went to it felt so customer friendly. I had to take a few pictures ...
While I was travelling back from Sweden to Edinburgh I saw a sign that prompted me to use the E passport gate. I thought to myself to do an experiment when I would arrive at the passport gates and select the e passport gate to see if it would be quicker.
At the passport gate there were 5 e passport gates and 7 normal gates. I clocked I guy going into the normal gates and watched him (in a non creepy way) to see who would "win the race".
As I made my way in the que I found a few problems with the E passport gates which was slower than the normal gates.
