WATCH: Woman explains how she learned more at McDonalds than at college

Rebel Staff
 

Haverford undergraduate Olivia Legaspi admits in a new video for Prager U that she learned more at McDonalds, working in the real world, than she did at university.

She points out how acting in a way acceptable and encouraged by her school would probably have gotten her fired from McDonalds.



In detail, Legaspi explains that while working, the customer must be given the benefit of the doubt and there's no “safe space” to turn to when things get heated and a customer gets angry. She has to deal with it.

Watch and sound off in the comments: do you agree?

Good job. If I mentioned a safe space where I work I’d get laughed out of the building and presented with a barrage of profanity. But it’s improved my work ethic. Just work no bullshit

This girl is smart. If McDonalds was smart, they’d hire her to become VP of Public Relations.

Now I want a Big Mac! I guess that is the aim of this infomercial.

From what I have witnessed being enrolled in a journalism course of study, teaches only that it is your responsibility to propagandize the party line. The accuracy and truth of news does not matter. Good job McDonalds for offering this young lady a Degree in Life. It is truly what being “educated” is all about.

It really depends on what you study. You’re going to learn a few things on-the-job even from a minimum-wage job or unpaid internship. But if you major in something like Communications, you’re pretty much going to learn zero, and if you major in something like Women’s Studies, you’re going to receive a negative amount of learning.

After years and years of post-secondary education (two engineering degrees) eventually in a position of being responsible for the actions of others, everything I needed to know about managing people I learned from a guy at John Brown Engineering named Tom Summers, the best boss I ever had. Things like; the lower someone is on the totem pole the greater the respect we should give them, and, never ever underestimate a fat man.

George. I like your comment about respect for those lower on the totem pole. In my last military job we had a briefing one day and the Brigadier General was a little pissed and everyone knew it but didn’t know what it was all about. Well, he ripped into it really fast. He started by saying “Anybody who wants to give the cleaner a hard time is going to deal with me.” This was the top boss talking about the lowest person on the totem pole and it put a stop to all of the bitches and complaints about garbage pick up and vacuuming and all the other cleaner functions. After that, not a peep out of anyone about the cleaner!

Brilliant analogy that decimates left wing narratives about safe spaces and trigger warnings. Life challenges people every day and we cannot run to anyone to resolve the issue. Feelings cannot become the determining factor as to what is correct speech otherwise thoughts will be censored. We are well on our way to the government determining what is acceptable speech…..human rights commissions reflect this ideology. This is a great video to show millennials to bring realism to the “safe space/trigger warning” view of their life!!

Funny how real life experiences trump (no pun intended) the babblegook espoused by lefties, isn’t it?

….outcomes based in personal advancement – unlike utopian deconstructionist politics which tell her personal and company profit is evil and to revolt against the boss, steal his burger joint so all the workers can eat for free – no wait that’s been tried – are their any functional McDonalds in Venezuela?

Well, what she was “taught”(indoctrinated?) at university was simply combative and utopian political ideologies – the workplace culture ( or politics to be precise) is pragmatic and focused on outcomes
