Maccas Playing Classical Music To Calm Down Crazy Customers

It's not uncommon to stumble across the occasional NUTBAG in a Maccas RESTAURANT.

They like to make their presence known by loitering, causing a dramatic scene or stinking the place out with their pungent and persistent body odour. 

One particular Maccas in West London saw 71 instances of crime in 2017 and needed to go to drastic lengths to repel people from causing a ruckus in their stores.

Their solution? Playing classical music. 

Not only does blasting Beethoven calm everyone down, but it also wards off any delinquents that would dub classical music as "uncool."

They've also removed free Wi-Fi from the store so there's less incentive for people to loiter. 

A similar tactic was used when classical music was played in stations on the Underground which was said to have soothing effects on people's moods.

Could we soon hear symphony's being pumped across Aussie Maccas stores?
