McDonald's customer shocks staff as she climbs through window into kitchen

McDonald's fans around the world understand the disappointment felt when you miss out on ordering a late night cheeseburger or fries on your Macca's run.

This is exactly how one desperate woman in the US felt when she was informed her local McDonald's restaurant had stopped taking orders for the night.

However, she decided to take matters into her own hands – climbing through the drive-thru window to make herself a snack.

In a viral video posted to TikTok by a McDonald's employee, the bold customer is shown climbing through the store's drive-thru window while staff scream with laughter.

Wearing a pink dress and wedge heels, the woman appears to have just come from a night out and is determined to make her own Macca's meal.

In the video, staff can be heard asking "what are you doing?" when the woman enters the kitchen.

Clasping her hands together, she smiles and says "alright" as she prepares to flaunt her culinary skills.

Meanwhile, McDonald's staff, who are out of uniform and closing up for the night, are on the floor laughing at the spectacle.

"I need somebody’s permission. I need to speak to the manager on duty," says the customer.

One of the staff responds: "I'm the manager on duty."

"Do I have permission to learn with you? It's a training thing," says the woman, while using air quotes.

The manager seems to take the woman's actions with a sense of humour and offers to make food for her.
