Is there some sort of stomach flu going around or should I blame McDonalds
A friend took me to McDonalds last night. They were having trouble with the refrigeration (no ice), the staff was utterly inept and the double-big-Mac was just plain wrong.

I've had stomach cramps all day and bit of fever and lots of dizziness and some intestinal problems.

Did they poison me or is there a flu going around?

2. If it was food poisoning...............
you wouldn't be sitting at the computer writing. My guess would be some sort of virus, I have two friends that just got over a bout with a gastro-intestinal virus. They said it lasted about a week. I hope your's is short lived.

4. double-big mac?
What, with like four pieces of meat?

What time of night was it? I'm guessing if it was late, somebody was cleaning the grill with "McDonald's brand Grill Cleaner", didn't wash all of it off, then decided to cook more meat on it.

5. It wasn't all that late
and I think they're a 24-hour place. They were being run ragged by the drive through, and people in trying to fix the ice machine and new staff and a kitchen too small for the kind of traffic they were trying to put through it.
