    Default Breakfast at the drive thru

    This morning I stopped at the drive thru of a fast food place to pick up
    breakfast sandwiches for a coworker and me. Should be a simple enough
    transaction.

    Place order and was given the total.
    Drive to widow
    Window opens, woman says "that will be $5.30 please. I pay and get change
    Wait about 30 seconds
    Widow opens, same woman says "that will be $3.25 please"

    Me: "for what?"
    Her: "what did you have?"
    Me: "Nothing lady, I'm still waiting for my food"
    Her: "Did you have the coffee?"
    Me: "You need a coffee. WAKE UP and PAY ATTENTION"

    Scenes like this, or worse, probably happen all over the country every day.

    It's a good idea not to give crap to folks who are handling your food
    out of your sight.


    V-1
    The food tastes good and I'm lovin' my meal
    But if I got to thinkin', it could really spoil it.
    When I think about whether you wash your hands
    When you scratch your balls or use the toilet.
    Chorus
    Hey, hey, fast food man
    I wonder if you washed your hands.
    With all the things that you could do
    I'm gonna be real nice to you.
    V-2
    You cough a little, and you rub your nose
    You wipe your forehead, and I suppose
    If I pissed you off, you could spit on my food.
    And piss and **** and semen too.

    Last night we had subs for dinner. We have a real sub shop in
    town. Call up to order so it's ready to be picked up: I'd like
    buffalo wings and a whole number 13. That's an Italian sub.

    Get there to pick it up, here you go, buffalo wings and a whole
    number 2. Uh ... you mean a number 13. They had to make a
    new sub. Out of curiousity I looked at the board, what's a
    number 2. (heh) Anyway, it's a baloney and cheese sub.

    I can't believe a sub like that has a number assigned to it. Who
    orders that?? I had my share of baloney and cheese sandwiches
    growing up. A whole sub's worth? Yikes.

    People make mistakes all the time. But of course you never do. Give
    her a break. In the scheme of things it's no big deal. ****, people
    let the smallest thing irritate them.

    People like you order them when they are growing up. Simple.

    That's the thing, as a sandwich, hey, a lot of us ate those.
    But to magnify the amount of meat and cheese to a whole
    10 inch stuffed sub size ... it doesn't translate to me, it's
    too much.

    Since the were little kid, most people have known what #2 is ;-) Well,
    it's at least appropriately named.

    (laugh) It sure didn't help the appetize factor when someone wants
    to hand you a bag of #2. I confess to making juvenile jokes later about
    the sub's appropriate number.

    Like buildings that don't have a 13th floor, food places might think about
    offering number 2 on their menu. Number 1 gets a pass for some
    reason.

    This was not a mistake, it was incompetence. She did not know I was the
    same customer that never moved away in the 30 seconds since she took my
    money. Evidently, she did not look at me, just went through some mechanics
    of opening a window and taking money.

    I make very few mistakes, but then, my standards are much higher than yours
    too.

    I worked the Burger King drive-through for the last 6 months I
    worked there (out of about 16 months). The drive through is the
    highest non-manager position in the joint. I'm 17 years old,
    almost a manager, can do every position in this restaurant, and if
    you would have talked to me that way I would have told to go ****
    yourself!

    Needless to say, I'm not working at Burger King any more ;-) But
    I can relate with cocky fast food teenagers. But not adults.
