Getting It Right In The Drive-Thru

September 12, 2010

I am a drive-thru expert. If it wasn’t for the drive-thru, there is a good chance I’d starve. But when it comes to the drive-thru, some people could use a few lessons on appropriate drive-thru etiquette. With that, I present the top ten drive-thru no-no’s.

1) If your order requires more than one receipt, you should have gone inside

2) If you are ordering for more than three people and you are the only one in the car, you should have gone inside

3) If your order requires more than two deviations from the standard menu, you should have gone inside

4) If you want to haggle for a better price, you should have gone inside (or just not gone to a fast food place altogether)

5) If you have skis, a kayak, or luggage strapped to your car, you should have gone inside

6) If plan to pay for the entire meal using the change you’ve collected in your ashtray, you should have gone inside

7) If you have to open your door to pay because your window won’t roll down, you should have gone inside

8) If you ask for any nutritional information (i.e. “how many calories are in a Big Mac?”), you should have gone inside

9) If your car is so loud that it drowns out your voice, you should have gone inside

10) If you are so unfamiliar with the menu that you find yourself asking stupid questions like “do you guys sell hamburgers?” when you are in the Burger King drive thru, you should have gone inside.
