His quirky order-taking technique, which was caught on camera, has resulted in an employee at a St Albans drive-thru restaurant finding internet fame.

The cashier, who is currently only known as Lewis, was filmed taking order at McDonald’s in Griffiths Way, St Albans, recently.

The video was posted online and soon went viral, being shared by various online news outlets including LADbible where it has racked up 21 million views.

In the video Lewis responds to the customer’s order by asking if he wants chicken or beef, and the customer responds with beef.

Lewis then said: “It’s got to be beef! And what drink on that bad boy?”

The customer orders a coke and Lewis replied: “Oi oi saveloy a little classical coke.”

Further into the order the customer asks for two 7-Up drinks and Lewis said: “Lovely, so we’ve got a 14-Up.”

He is also heard to make comical comments such as “Choccy shake! Don’t mind if I diddly-do” and “Saucy with sweet chill-ay.”

A McDonalds spokesperson said: “We are delighted with the attitude and positivity Lewis has shown to our customers.

“Lewis is a valued member of the McDonald’s team and is always putting a smile on customers’ and colleagues’ faces. He is testament to the brilliant young people we employ, delivering feel-good moments up and down the country.”

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
