Thursday Thirteen #13

Thirteen Things to do in the drive thru lane

1. Drive through backwards.
2. Have a friend hide in the trunk. When you approach the window to pickup your order, have him start yelling and banging his fists on the trunk.
3. Drive through with someone on the hood to accept the food.
4. Speak in such a garbled fashion that the order-taker will think there is a problem with the speaker and ask you to order at the window. When you arrive at the window, speak in the same garbled, incomprehensible fashion.
5. Drive through with a carload of naked people.
6. After ordering, cover the speaker and mic with transparent tape. Watch as customers and order-takers are unable to hear each other and, thus, each raises his/her volume.
7. Barter. Offer a Whopper for a Big Mac.
8. Walk through.
9. Repeat everything the order-taker says.
10. Order confusing items, i.e., "Hi, I'll have a large orange Coke and a small medium fries, please."
11. When you arrive at the window to pick up your food, hand them several bags of garbage & ask if they'll dispose of it for you.
12. Speak a foreign language (make one up if you have to). When the manager comes to the mic, speak English and inquire as to why the order taker had such difficulty understanding you.
13. Belch your order.

People working the drive thu have as many "paybacks" as there are pranks so you better watch out. ;)

Hehe.. These are funny, Neen! We did the "walk through" one in HS on a Band trip.. it took a bunch of us to get the sensor to trip for them to take our order.

The whole thing reminded me of that comedy routine with the guy ordering at the drive through and the kid repeating the order back and the only thing you can make out clearly is the large orange soda pop.

I have birthday cake at my place today, stop by and have a piece.

Hrrrrrmmmmmm. This was interesting as I am a former restaurant manager (Chick-fil-a) and I have seen a few of these.

Factually, most places have a trash can in the DT area because the health dept won't allow you to take in/handle trash through the window, but you'll love this story coming....

One Saturday morning 3 of our local police entered the lobby. I was running the shift and greeted them. Glancing over at the DT window, I noticed a car facing the wrong way. I went to investigate, assuming we had missed part of an order and the teens in the car had driven back to the store and approached in the wrong direction. My guys on DT told me they had ordered and driven around that way. Considering that to be stupid and potentially dangerous, I said, "Hey Yoder, check this out." and Officer Yoder observed them driving out of the lane in reverse, so he left his fellow officers and went after them!

When he returned he said he caught them and cited them for reckless driving. I laughed and told him I would LOVE to be in the room when they hae to tell their parents WHY they have a ticket!
