how come mcdonald's fastfood don't provide toothpicks to their customers?

to anyone who eats out alot like me, sometimes food particles get stuck in between the teeth. a toothpick is really necessary to remove that food particle. so, how come its not being provided by Mcdonalds fastfood? the customers is entitled to full satisfaction after dining, however it only leads to a lot of irritation on the diner. what i don't understand is that other fastfood chains like jollibee, kfc, kenny rodgers etc... do provide toothpicks. so how come mcdonalds don't? mcdonalds dont even put out any notices regarding this situation, very deceitful on their part.

    Because toothpicks are too expensive for McDonald's, They're in debt. (Like Millions of dollars!) Anyways, They'de probably make you pay like 10 cents for each toothpick, knowing them! Lol

    Good Question!

    probably cuz they don't want to spend the money or time writing tiny little precautions on the toothpick wrap so no one comes back to sue them over getting "picked" by the toothpick they "picked" up from mcdonald's carryout! ('member the coffe lawsuit that started all these trivial lawsuits??)

    hmmm....You just might be on to something.

    But then again, there are some Mcdonalds, (in other countries) that are a high end restraunt, where you actually sit down and a waitor comes to you.

    maybe they dont want the risk of being sued if somebody poked their eye out with it while driving. lol people will sue over anything.

    To save money and most of their stuff is over processed it doesn't stick in your teeth the way real food does.

    Because they know their food will come out real soon one way or the other.
