Coming Out of the (McDonald’s) Closet, Part 2
Well, it’s a fact, I was a McDonald’s employee, and here’s a photo to prove it, circa 1984, Springfield, Virginia–orangey polyester and all. Don’t I look enthusiastic?
Thanks, Chuck, for reviving one of my ugliest (in more ways than one) secrets.
I can honestly say that I have not eaten a meal at McDonald’s since I quit working there in 1985!

WOW/ Robin you are fantastic…Im so glad I have been turned on to you and your Green Soothies…thankx so much for ypyr information and you do have a “cute” hair do…
This is cute….My daughter was asking for McD’s just today and I said no way…the weird thing is she hardly ever ask for it…why today…hmmmmmmmm???? but we didn’t do it…….
Thanks for sharing…
LOL…you would LOL my Taco Bell pics too!!! Oh, how we’ve evolved!!! Its’ all good, or shall I say…It’s all for good!!!
I worked at McDonalds in the late 70’s. Blue uniform.
From the time I first came to your blog, I was under a strong impression that you were raised vegetarian, and continued to be vegetarian through the course of your life. This confession was a good PR move in response to your whistle-blowing friend… but I would have respected you far more if you had at least alluded to it from the beginning.
OMG! I worked at A&W as a car hop for a summer and then on to Burger King only because the ‘cool Kiss people’ worked there. GAG on the food! But, I, too…..was a part of the fast food industry. Look at that hair! Mine was white blonde and crimped when I worked at Burger King!
I am a big fan of the Green Smoothie Girl. I can see she is beautiful inside and out. She is making big changes in many people’s lives.
For someone out of the past to try to bring some former junk food habits out now is so childish and it is a sign of extreme jealousy. Even if it is as a joke or teasing, it will just fall to the wayside.
My wife, and our green smoothie drinking 12 year old daughter think you are great. So keep doing what you are doing.
Just imagine who you’d be if you were still working there and eating that way.
Great that you saw the light.
it’s great to have other pics of you from different times in your life
I am (sigh) in my late 50’s, and have gone through a lot of food phases. Hamburger hot dishes, pizza rolls, etc., maybe some canned vegetables. Canned chicken a-la-king, yum, canned raviole. Did do carrot sticks. On to frozen burritos, hot pockets, with a lot of chocolate and cookies. Oh, there were also the buttered croissants with cheddar cheese for breakfast daily. And then the fried eggs and cheese sandwiches.
Doing much better now!
You shouldn’t be embarrassed or ashamed about working at McDonald’s, but I do agree with your son about fast food burgers. One of the first ones I ever had was nearly raw. GROSS! I ate around the outside, just lucky it didn’t have any e-coli! Didn’t know much about that then.
Thanks for your site, Robyn.
Robyn I think you are much better looking today than you were in 1984
at the very least much healthier
time to lean is time to clean?
Robyn, your site has completely changed my life and the fact that you once ate junk food gives me much hope. Hope you’re having a great time in Peru.
Aspiring every day to achieve a health, Rosie
