Meet The 92-Year-Old Who's Happily Flipping Burgers At McDonald's

Would you like fries with that?

At 92, most of us would expect to be enjoying our golden years in retired bliss -- not working hard under the golden arches. But for Goh Gwek Eng, clocking in at a Singapore McDonald's and cooking up sizzling hot fries are still all in a day's work.

The great-grandmother is thought to be Singapore's oldest McDonald's employee and possibly one of the oldest in the world, The Straits Times reports. 

After spending decades as a stay-at-home mom and housewife, the boredom got to be too much. 

Goh said becoming an empty nester made her want to find a way to occupy herself.

"Now that most of them are working or have their own families, the house is very quiet," Goh said.

In 1998, when she was in her mid-70s, Goh decided to go to work for the fast food chain -- and she's been employed there ever since.

Goh says the hardest thing is standing in front of the hot deep fryer, but she notes that her younger colleagues are always willing to lend a hand when she needs it. 

Other nonagenarians also work for McDonald's. A 95-year-old in Maryland, believed to be the oldest Mcdonald's worker in the U.S., has been working for the chain for 20 years. And the chain's oldest employee in Europe is believed to be a 90-year-old WWII veteran. 

As for Goh, she says she doesn't plan on slowing down any time soon.

"I plan to keep working for as long as I am healthy."

Amazing.
