Shocking video shows a McDonald’s worker being shoved and almost run over at a driver-thru queue as he is harassed by two angry women.
During the incident on Saturday, at a restaurant in Enfield, north London, one of the women – clearly desperate for a post-lockdown McMeal – can be heard screaming ‘I hope you die’ at the employee.
The altercation began after the staff member refused to allow the pair to join the queue due to a build-up of traffic on the A10.
According to a bystander, the driver said she was going to the neighbouring Krispy Kreme but then cheekily tried to nip into the McDonad’s lane.
Footage shows the fast-food employee wearing a face mask as he stands right in front of their black car at the entrance to the drive-thru lane and refuses to let it pass.

The irate woman exits the vehicle and screams at the employee to move out of the way – but he refuses to let her join the queue due to a build-up of traffic on the A10. After returning to her car, she yells, ‘It’s food! You dumb s**t, you f**king p***k. I hope you f**king die!’
After the car edges forward slightly – and nearly runs over the man- another, older woman then emerges from the vehicle and she too shoves the employee
The female driver repeatedly yells ‘Move! – but the man stays put. She then exits the vehicle and confronts him, shouting: ‘Move away from my car.’
The woman, who appears to be in her early twenties, then pushes the employee away and screams: ‘Oh just f**k off man – it’s food! You dumb s**t, you f**king p***k. I hope you f**king die!’
A passenger in the back of the vehicle, who appears to be a child, watches the clash.
After her tantrum, the woman begins to drive slowly towards the queue but is again blocked by the employee – and nearly runs him over.
The stand-off continues and an older woman gets out of the car and also shoves the employee out of the way.
At this point, the manager arrives and shouts: ‘I am not serving you!’ – while the argument rages on.
The staff stand firm and refuse to let the women join the queue, sending the older woman into a profanity-strewn tirade.
The two women then tussle with each other, with the younger trying to placate the older one.
Eventually the women back off and the incident comes to an end.

MailOnline has contacted McDonald’s for comment.
Clips of the abuse were uploaded to Facebook and posted publicly by Shyaan Anais shortly after.
Shyaan posted: ‘I am disgusted with what I witnessed today. This person told the McDonald’s worker she was driving into Krispy Kreme when she was deliberately trying to enter the McDonald’s drive-thru.
‘The drive-thru line was closed off due to build-up of traffic happening on the A10, hence why her, and the cars behind weren’t allowed. ‘
‘I can’t believe the amount of verbal and physical abuse this guy experienced when he was only following the rules required of his job.
‘People like this have no respect and no morals, and to top that she had a young child in the car. It happened for over 15 minutes.’
The footage comes as McDonald’s CEO in the UK and Ireland Paul Pomroy said that McDonald’s were working hard to bring their full menu back – but only when it was safe to do so.
He expects to be trialling the return of the breakfast within a few weeks.
This follows the news that 500 more restaurants will be reopened this week following on from three days of restaurants being reopened last week by McDonald’s.
With the extra 500 openings the chain restaurants will now have more than 1,000 stores open again to customers.
However, all stores continue to operate only drive-thru or delivery services as customers are still not allowed inside the restaurants.
