Who knew the day shift at McDonald's could be so exciting?
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a pit stop for lunch Saturday at the Whitby Mall McDonald's, about 45 minutes east of downtown Toronto.
The unannounced visit caught a lot of McDonald's staffers off-guard, like 16-year-old student Dominic Morales, who was on his break when the prime minister dropped in.
"I heard like a lot of screaming coming from our co-workers," Morales told CBC News, soon realizing who had walked in. "[I was] like 'Was he here for an event or whatever?' And then it just turns out he was just ordering food, like a normal person."
"I don't really delve into a lot of what the prime minister does. I think he'd go to a higher class place … I like he went for just a casual McDonald's, you know, he was kind of like one of us."
Morales shot a video of his co-workers soon after the prime minister left, giddy with excitement about their brush with the politician.
