Do they program the kiosk to ask "Do you want fries with that?", the same way they program their cashiers that are only worth $5 per hour?

Here is the deal, I can walk into a McDonalds and tell a cashier what I want, then that cashier enters my order into a computer, or I can enter my order directly into the computer. By removing the unintelligent and uneducated cashier McDonalds has effectively removed one of the failure points in their system.

Bonus for McDonalds, kiosks don't call in sick, don't show up late and never get a bad attitude.

I thought about that the other day, they'll program it to ask if you want fries, that's when people will start smashing those kiosks.

:Yes Yes!:
