Despite her age she hasn’t got plans to retire any time soon
A 94-year-old woman has racked up 44 years of service working at McDonald’s – and says she isn’t retiring any time soon.
Loraine Maurer admits she has also eaten the fast food every single shift for the past four decades.
The veteran Big Mac server has worked at a number of restaurants in Indiana, USA since 1973.
She’s so popular in the local area, loyal customers and co-workers have even offered to pick her up and drop her off at home after her shift.
Maurer proudly told People that she knows everything about her customers’ lives, saying: “I know what goes on with them, I know some of their children. Some ask me to say a prayer and I do. I know their lives.”
The owners of the McDonald’s store Loraine works at said in a statement: “After all these years, she remains committed to serving her customers with one of the most delightful smiles around.
“Loraine has a loyal following of customers and they look forward to having her take their orders when visiting McDonald’s.”
What would she recommend off the menu? Her favourite is the fish sandwich, but she insists there isn’t anything she doesn’t like.
“This morning I had a blueberry muffin, two fried eggs and a cup of coffee.”
“My customers make my life. I have traveled with them, gone to ball games with them. They’re friends, not just customers.”
Maurer, who has four children, even had McDonald’s delivered to her house on the few occasions she’s been off sick and unable to eat it in the restaurant.
Congratulations on 44 years of service, Loraine!
