$80 drive through order? Login/Join

I eat out only once a week. All week I eat pretty healthy and exercise a lot. So once a week I'll go get my "cheat" meal and look forward to it. I save a lot of money by doing this or living this way.

This weekend it was a Whataburger. I kind of wondered wtf was going on when the young, fat, millennial girl was taking so much time at the speaker box. She took so damn long ordering the line ahead of her was completely cleared out, and this location is always popping. I figured she was just another millennial snowflake with her feelings in on her order. I order, took 10 seconds and I'm rolling. Now I'm behind the fat lady again, and I see three millennials in that vehicle and multiple receipts/cards being exchanged with the window worker. Young folks will do this, like splitting a check at a restaurant, 3 separate orders. A friend called so I'm talking to him, waiting. It's probably 20-25 minutes since arrival, felt like an hour. I look behind me and there is a line wrapped around the place. The What-a-worker finally tells the fat lady to pull to the side. I pull up, and say I'm not trying to be rude, but wtf is going on in the millennial car? "They have an $80 order" was his response. WTF! His eyes rolled too. One, I'd never pull that shit in the first place. Two, take your fat ass inside for all that. People use a drive thru for speed, we all have busy lives. You do not order $80 worth of food via drive thru. Worker was cool and discounted my grilled chicken sandwich. It ain't cancer so I wasn't that upset, but I told the guy I was gonna say something to them as I left. I get my discount and food, I thanked the worker. He says "They need to go to the grocery store." That made me Big Grin
So I pull up right next to their car, my window is still down. I look over and white fat girl in the driver's seat, a large African American male with braids in the passenger seat, and I didn't even bother looking at the back seat. As I pulled along side to say something guess what all 3 were doing?

All 3 with their noses in their phones. Imagine pulling up and seeing 3 people with their phones 6 inches from their face, all face down. A perp would have the easiest robbery in history. They all 3 looked at me, I just smiled after seeing those phones, and said wtf would the point be? Rolled up the window, shook my head, and left.



Well thank you pal. The day I get out of prison, my own brother picks me up in a police car.

Fine rant. It frosts my ass when the idiot in front of me wants a custom made, not on the menu, burger. While I starve behind him.

All of the above is the reason that I frequently park, grab my cane, and hobble inside. Unless it's a summer afternoon with the typical Florida rainstorm.

This, particularly at Dairy Queen. There, the drive thru should be only for ice cream and drinks. It takes them too damn long to make a hamburger.

For such a large/complicated order, the restaurant should have had the big eaters pull forward (my local McDonalds has two designated spots beyond the drive-through windows for this) or find a parking space and bring the food out to them, not hold up every other car behind them.

Wonder how much fat and calories each snowflake ingested from that meal.

I don't do drive thru. Between squawk boxes, asshats in line, and my inability to leave the line, it's just not worth it.

I don't do fast food anymore either.

Getting to be where I'm about a freakin' hermit.

Few years back I was out driving to jobsites looking for work as a carpenter.As luck would have it a local scaffold company hired me and sent me directly to a power plant for an emergency repair job. I got there at 11:00am,had not ate before hand,worked until 11:30pm that night,stopped at Taco Bell,the first food I could get. Woman in front of me had just completed her order and pulled forward.I pull up and get a glimpse of the screen before placing my order,$65.00 and it is add this,2 no this,5 plus this,10 this instead of this,etc.
Well the next thing I know is she is opening every item as the clerk hands it to her and begins THROWING it back thru the window and screaming her shit ain't right.Now I'm 18-20 hours into my day with no more than 2 cups of coffee 18 hours ago in me.I can't tell you how hard it was to not put my truck in drive and push that car into oncoming traffic. When I got to the window the kid looked like he'd seen a ghost,half covered in taco bombs and bewildered at the events before him.I told him I felt bad for him and he handled it as best as he could and paid for my food and was on my way.

An $80 order? It was cold to start with.

I believe I was behind this idiot at Dunkin Donuts today. Little miss bitchcakes ordered 4 sandwiches each with numerous questions and exacting special instructions, them moved onto the same drill with her coffee.

My window was down and I excalimed "you're got to be fucking kidding me" load enough for her to hear.

Drive throughs should be like the express lane at the grocery store with either and item or dollar limit.

I think if you can't convey your order in 15 seconds or less, Next. Smile

Wow, cursing the worker out callling her the C word? That place could have been scammed on large orders. Teenagers, what have you. None of that is an excuse to start calling a girl a c, or an ugly b, etc. Big orders, well I always thought you go inside, and wait, rather than screwing everyone in line.

Maybe it's just time not to eat out anymore. Only reason I do it anyways, again once only per week, is not have too cook. I cook all my own meals and you get burned out.

This was the case at the Worlds Largest Drive In, the Varsity in Atlanta. You better have exact change and know what you wanted. The line was a mile long but moved quickly. I was impressed. Of course this was some time back.

jackwads were certainly not local as they stated a long drive in and then another 175 miles to go. I would have told them to go elsewhere. But, that is me.

This is the story of my life whenever I'm pulling into my local DD for my very quick and simple order of "large iced coffee, just cream", whenever it seems like I'll be next into the drive through, there ALWAYS seems to be some woman in an SUV that swoops in ahead of me where they proceed to ask detailed questions about EVERY. DAMN. ITEM. ON. THE. MENU.

GAHHHH! Mad

I don't do drive thru. I want to see the humans or robots who make the food, and I want them to see me.

It's also easier to return when they fail to give me the ketchup-only burger I ordered. Frown
