M'sian Man Shares Why We Should Clean Up After Eating At Fast Food Restaurants
While his intentions were innocent, some Malaysians did not take his words kindly and left negative comments on his post.
Cleaning up after we are done eating at fast food restaurants is a practice that Malaysians are slowly adapting to
To raise awareness among the public, a Malaysian man recently posted on Facebook about why we should normalise cleaning up after ourselves.
According to the man, it is critical to practise this because fast food restaurants are often short of manpower and our assistance is deeply appreciated.
"It doesn't matter if you are B40, M40, or T20. After eating, please clean up and throw away your trash. Fast food chains are short on staff to clean the table after you eat," he said.

One user commented that if the poster were to eat at local food stalls, he would not be cleaning up after himself.
Another commented that if fast food restaurants are short of manpower, they should not put the responsibility on customers.
"That's their problem, not the customers' problem," they wrote.
"If you know you're short on staff, then hire more. Even cheap restaurants have their own cleaners, so why can't expensive restaurants hire more staff?" wrote another user.
"You earn hundreds of thousands a day and you cannot hire more staff?" asked one user.
Meanwhile, one user said customers are charged service fees in their bills.
However, another user pointed out that they are paying the service tax, instead of a service charge at fast food chains.
Unfortunately, many Malaysians still believe cleaning up after ourselves when dining out is not their responsibility:
