It's 2am. You've spent your night raging on the D-floor, or binge-watching up a storm on Netflix. You suddenly crave a McFlurry, cause man they're good. 

You go to Macca's, hit the drive-thru speaker box, and the worker gives you the worst news. 

The McFlurry machine is broken. 

 
WHY, oh why does this happen all too often?! 

There's actually a reason.

An employee of the fast-food giant has explained precisely why the issue occurs with such annoying regularity.

Basically, it's because Macca's are cleaning the soft serve machine! Cleaning the machine is an 11-part process, and takes four hours to complete on a daily basis.

A spokesperson for McDonald's has said: "We regularly service our soft-serve equipment during off-peak hours. Customers who come in during that time may encounter a longer wait time or soft-serve dessert unavailability."
