We've heard the expression, walk a mile in their shoes.

Some male servers at an Ottawa restaurant did just that to bring attention to how the restaurant industry often treats female servers much differently than their male counterparts.

Servers decked out in high heels and skimpy dresses isn't an unusual sight in many restaurants.  That is... if it's women wearing them.

 To highlight the way many female servers are forced to show off their bodies, the restaurant dressed its male staff like this to make a statement.

The men discovered the attire also hurt their ability to do their job.

The men say they forgot orders, took twice as long to serve tables and even stopped bringing refills.

But what surprised these men the most - was how people felt entitled to touch them and make comments.

After a few hours they all kicked off their heels for something more comfortable and gained a newfound understanding of what many women have to deal with on the job.

In the past few months, McDonald's has started serving breakfast all day, introduced the buttermilk crispy chicken sandwich and is testing out energy drinks at 20 of its 14,000 restaurants in the United States. 

It looks like these new ideas are exciting McDonald's consumers and investors.

USA Today reported McDonald's ended a seven-quarter losing streak and its profits climbed to $1.3 billion, up from $1.07 billion from the same quarter the year prior.

McDonald's has been named the "comeback kid" by CNN as its stock hit its first new record high in 2 1/2 years. It's recent commitment to improve food quality has bested its shares against Chipotle, one of its top "fast casual" competitors.

A year ago, McDonald's made headlines for being in its worst slump in a decade. But it seems the company's recent changes have put the golden arches back in the good graces of hungry Americans.

Anytime is McMuffin time starting now. This is not a drill.

McDonald's announced it will serve breakfast all day starting Tuesday, and the Internet — and probably also your arteries — are freaking out.

This could be a move to combat Taco Bell in the breakfast battle. Remember when McDonald's pulled this act-of-war on Taco Bell back in April?

"If you can prove you already ate at one fast food chain, another fast food chain will give you a free breakfast," reported Buzz: 60. (Video via Buzz: 60

But if you're craving hash browns, you might have to find your fix elsewhere. McDonald's spokeswoman Linda McComb told Buzzfeed some restaurants can't make hash browns all day because of a “restaurant configuration issue.” 

So if you really want your favorites, you might have to keep getting up before 10:30 a.m. Your move, Taco Bell. (Video via McDonald's)

Tasty or terrifying? Burger King introduces black Halloween Whopper

More popular and trending stories

Burger King is officially bringing a black burger, similar to one of the menu items in its restaurants in Japan, to the United States.

Unlike the Japanese version, which is made black with squid ink, the American version’s pitch black bun has the added bonus of being slathered in steak sauce.

Dubbed the “A.1. Halloween Whopper” (or Ha.1.Loween Whopper, per FastFoodWatch), the new burger is made with a beef patty topped with melted American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, pickles, onions and, of course, A.1. Steak Sauce.

The new Whopper’s black bun gets its distinct color by baking steak sauce directly into the bread — no squid ink necessary.

Americans can get their new spooky burger starting Sept. 28, but it will only be available for a limited time.

New ad campaign fat-shames Chipotle restaurants

A new ad campaign called Chubby Chipotle has launched a "head on" attack against the popular upscale fast-food chain.

In a full-page New York Post ad (see video), the words "eat two 'all natural' Chipotle burritos a week and you could gain 40 pounds a year" accompany a photo of a hefty male.

The campaign is funded by Center for Consumer Freedom, which includes food and health advocates and lawyers.

"They've built up this idea that somehow their food is better for you, that it's healthier for you," CCF's Director of Research Will Coggin told the Washington Post.

Chipotle, which uses the slogan "Food With Integrity," is referred to as "food with hypocrisy" on the Chubby Chipotle website.

The restaurant "claims to be ethical but its marketing is highly unscientific and harms animal welfare," the website says.

It then pokes holes in specific Chipotle terminology ("gmo-free, sustainable, sofrito" etc.).

It compares the chain's calorie counts to those from McDonald's and criticizes the company's stance against antibiotics, claiming medicine is actually good and necessary for farm animals to survive.

Chipotle responded to the claims, denying them, and acknowledging the company has been criticized about for the same things in the past.

The chain's director of operations even questioned CCF's reputation and its sources of funding.

Coggin says there is more to come from the campaign.
