Can't really blame them, can you?

With nearly 40,000 restaurants dotted all over the globe, some could argue that McDonald's quite literally makes the world go around.

What's not to love about McDonald's?

The burgers, the fries, the milkshakes... Just everything about the fast-food restaurant is incredible. McDonald's - we love you.

But, in the last couple of months...

A medical pandemic has brought our love for McDonald's to a temporary standstill.

Countries all over the world have been brought to a halt.

In an attempt to combat the deadly virus, various world leaders have imposed lockdowns upon their countries, thus closing all shops, bars, and restaurants.

And, devastatingly, many McDonald's restaurants are amongst those who have been forced to close their doors.

For the first time ever, McDonald's infamous deep fat fryers have been switched off, leaving millions of Big Mac lovers well, Big Mac-less.

Luckily for us here in the States, our restaurants haven't been affected.

American McDonald's restaurants remain well and truly open, despite the growing number of virus cases and deaths. We really will do anything for a cheeseburger, won't we?

But the rest of the world, sadly, can't relate.

Other (arguably more sensible) countries have had to ride out the pandemic without that much-needed fast food fix.

It sounds completely horrific, doesn't it?

I personally can't even imagine an existence without McDonald's.

People have had to make do with their own cooking...

Though this has proven to be too depressing for most, so many have been attempting their own "homemade McDonald's" in the absence of the real McDonald's.

And some of them actually look edible!

These homemade Big Macs look almost like the real deal... Kudos!

But, for some lucky customers, this living hell may just be over.

As France begins the slow process of lifting its lockdown, a select number of their McDonald's restaurants have been gradually reopening their doors. Hallelujah!

But, there's a catch.

Upon reopening their doors, French McDonald's restaurants have been swamped by hundreds of customers eager for their fast-food fix.

The scenes have been ridiculous.

Cars can be seen completely gridlocked in huge traffic jams as people frantically rush to their nearest restaurant.

And, reportedly, some people even queued for 3 hours.

They must really be lovin' it. (I'm sorry, I had to...)

Twitter users have been sharing videos of the madness...

Huge trails of cars have been spotted patiently queueing up along the road across various parts of the country.

People are going to extreme lengths to get their hands on a burger and fries.

If I'd gone for weeks without McDonald's, I'd probably do the same...

But the chaos has been affecting even those who aren't queueing for McDonald's.

A resident from the northern-central town of Moissy-Cramayel, known only as Joshua, told local media, "I had to use another road to go home because it was so gridlocked."

News of the opening had spread across his town fast...

He explained, "I thought I'd stop there on my way home, but there were already so many cars... I couldn't. In the evening when I went to play sports, there were even more people. Some friends waited up to three hours to get their McDonald's!"

You have to admit...

Their dedication is seriously admirable.

Let's just hope their Big Macs were worth the wait.
