Get my pies

Why oh why can't people who take drive-through orders ever get it right when you loudly and clearly specify something?

Twice now, Dunkin Donuts has done this: I get into the drive-through and order a bagel with my iced coffee. DO NOT TOAST I say to them, clearly and loudly.

So what do they do? Extra toast that thing! I'm too far away to realize this to go back and the line is 10 cars deep anyway so that's not happening.

How is it that my very specific "DO NOT TOAST" gets turned into "extra done toasting"?

I just don't get it. Confused

Ok, so that's like seven words.




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

If they were paid fifteen bucks / hour, the same schmucks would get your order right.

Carpooled to a concert a few months ago.
Couple we went with wanted to stop for a bite on the way home, near midnight.

Pulled into a Taco Bell drive thru & rolled the back window down (I was driving) so they could order.
He orders some Skittles slush thing, order-taker comes back with "A bean burrito" Confused

Luckily, we were still at the speaker (and laughing pretty well) & got it resolved before the window.

This has happened to me a few times with "no" and "only." I ask for no ketchup on burgers and get them with only ketchup.

Anytime I want something custom, I go inside.

I consider drive-thru showroom model order only.

Wait, you eat a bagel without toasting it?

What is wrong with you?

That is the real travesty here! Wink

Spoken like a man who has never had a fresh bagel, right out of the oven, at a neighborhood mom & pop bagel bakery in Brooklyn. Anybody who toasts one of these should be sentenced to a lifetime of no bagels.

I concede the point, but he isn't getting bagels like that from Dunkin Donuts. Wink

When I am going through the drive thru and I order something other than the standard menu item (no onions for example), I repeat it TWICE with emphasis (absolutely no onions whatsoever) and I then make the drive thru person repeat the order back to me. My wife gets mad at me for being obnoxious, but since I began doing that the accuracy of my orders has improved significantly.
