I finished raking up the leaves and had a hankering for McDonalds Fellatio Fish, so I decide to hit the drive-thru and rolling up, I see both lanes have two vehicles in them and I pick the outside lane (as it's been my experience that it's usually "luckier" and tends to go faster).
I pull up and roll down my window, only to hear; "yeah, and I'll take 9000 Happy Meals, 3952 without pickles, 468 with no mustard, blablabla, etc."
I then have to sit there as _three_ cars place their orders and roll thru the inside lane, while this empty-headed fucking soccer mom is ordering everything on the menu (and each thing of course has to be specially made for her retarded spawn) until finally she finishes and the next car in line can roll up....
Which is driven by ANOTHER empty-headed fucking soccer mom ordering 9000 Happy Meals and a ton of other shit (also, everything specially made) and I get to sit there and watch as another _three_ cars roll thru the inside lane while I'm waiting....
God damn it to fucking hell! If you're going to order a bazillion items, GO IN THE FUCKING RESTAURANT and make your order and stop holding up dozens of normal people behind you!
Fast food joints ought to put a up a "$10 max order" sign on the drive-thru, to prevent these clueless selfish soccer moms from being a pain in everybody's ass!
Yeah I hate when that shit happens. Too bad once you're in the McDonalds drive thru there's no escape unless you want to run over a curb, take out some poles or run your car through some bushes.
>getting mad cause other people use the drive through
You've reached a new level of autism. Also if your eating at fucking mcdonalds you aren't any better then the most retarded of soccer moms
You do realize that in ANY establishment, not just fast food, there will always be a pain in the ass customer, right?
Go to Walmart, and the lines are long because that's where goobers normally go to shop.
Check in at a hotel, and you'll be held up by some asshole complaining that his room's window isn't facing east.
You can't even get decent help at car dealerships these days, because the salespeople are tied up with complete morons who make you look like a Nobel Prize candidate in comparison, but somehow have more money than you do.
>Maybe you should have just gotten out of your car and walked in, you fucking moron.
All I wanted was a single Fellatio Fish, which is what the drive-thru is for, not catering a fucking hillbilly wedding!
>Just lean on your horn until they quit.
I may just do that next time, though I dunno about pissing off a soccer mom...
>>Why won't people cater solely to me! I'm a special snowflake!
I know, right?! That's exactly how these soccer moms behave!
>It is ironic that the OP is the product of the very sort of soccer mom he's complaining about, yes.
OP here and I'm 48 years old, son.
I was taught not to be a rude asshole and hold up other people needlessly and if were going to order a bazillion items, I'd park and go inside the restaurant to order them.
>OP here and I'm 48 years old, son.
Really? Then you should have learned to have some fucking patience and not be such entitled child by now.
>I'd park and go inside the restaurant to order them.
Then we'd only have whiney crybabies complaining about the soccer mom holding them up in the queue inside.
People ordering things is what happens in restaurants. Your order is not more important than their order. Deal with it.
All drive throughs should have a sign that says "No large orders at drive through" or "For large orders, please walk inside". Or at the very least, if the establishment has two drive through lanes, one should be for small orders and the other for large orders - both marked accordingly.
Disagreed. The drive through is supposed to be the fastest option possible. Few places provide a decent area to wait for to-go orders. It seems to have become generally accepted that if you walk in, you are eating at a table there. Thus, it should be expected that if you drive in, you should not make a large order, because you are fucking up the concept of a quick stop. And if you do that, fuck you.
I can feel sympathy for you, OP.
I used to work fast food, and the soccer moms were the worst customers. They take the longest time at the speaker and window and always have stupid requests. "I wanted milk instead of soda so I need to change this out oh you still want to upcharge me? Let me speak to your manager" or "I need four unique toys, oh you do not have for different toys well I want a refund and I still want my meal." And they sit at the window checking all their bags, and I totally understand wanting to make sure your order is correct, but chilling at the window as you check all your bags (and your cellphone) is forever in drive thru time, while all the cars behind have their food in bags, ready to be handed out, getting cold.
Also when they let their kids scream their order, shit like "I WANT FRENCH FRIES" into the speaker and thinking it is so cute.
Check your literacy privilege. Not everyone can read.
But actually, not everyone can read or pays attention. People would still just pick the shortest lane.
You're putting way to much faith in people.
FWIW, I actually agree with you and the OP. I'll go so far as to say that I think the drive thru should be limited to combo meals only and you can only order one.
> soccer moms behave like an inconsiderate assholes
> "you should just suck it up, OP!"
this is some serious cognitive dissonance you've got going on here. You complain that somehow by going through the drive through with an order other people are being inconsiderate and selfish, yet you then expect everyone else to revolve their lives around your needs and wants with no consideration for other peoples rights.
tl;dr they did nothing wrong you're a dick and I'm glad society scorns people like you and not them
>being inconsiderate and selfish
Yes, it is inconsiderate and selfish to hold up a whole bunch of people by ordering a shit load of stuff at the drive-thru, the entire point of which is speed and convenience.
Though I do have to say this McDonalds is always on the ball (it's owned by Arabs) and somehow got the fucking soccer moms their 9000 Happy Meals without delaying the other customers too much.
>no it's inconsiderate and selfish to expect everyone else to move aside
Except it was in fact _everyone else_ who is being delayed because these two soccer moms are clueless dingbats.
There were probably 2-3 cars behind me who had to wait also, as this was the lunch rush.
>Fuck you, everybody else can wait! *I'M* the most important person here!
>Stop being so selfish, I'm ordering a million items for *MY* precious snowflakes!
>People reading signs
>And following them
Except in the process, she's holding up a bunch of other people and knowing that is likely to happen, she should do the polite and civilized thing and go inside to place her bazillion item order.
>And the people behind me
You're holding up the people behind you, too. You inconsiderate cunt. Why don't you get out of the way and let those poor people order? God you're so fucking disgusting. I bet you think you have a "good reason" or something? Pathetic.
I sympathize OP, I hate this shit. If your order is that big you really should call ahead, and yes you CAN do that, most people don't know though.
One time I had this happen and it only 1 lane in the drivethrough, around 1pm, so not lunch hour but still busy, and some woman in a van blocked the entire line for 10 minutes while cars kept piling up. Eventually the staff had to come out re-route traffic so more people wouldn't get stuck in line because she refused to pull ahead and move out of the way without her food.
That's the human condition you jack ass.
If you don't consider yourself the most important person in the world, who the fuck does?
You beta pussy fuck, getting keked by middle aged women at McDonalds.
You should just fucking kill yourself.
But then she'd be holding up the people inside the store who may also be short be time, but who walk instead of drive. Or who prefer to speak to a cashier directly rather than fuss with a staticky intercom.
fast food employee here
gold start post.
get your fucking lazy bitch asses out of the car and into the lobby so you don't drive the timer up to 220 seconds and put us in the red you thoughtless whores. the drive thought is supposed to be so you can get in and out quick, not so that you can order without having to get up.
You think it's just one guy making all the burgers for everyone? They got like 10 people back there working on multiple orders. For OP it's easy to figure his fish sandwich would be done and ready way before a trillion Happy Meals.
You get whatever fucking sandwich is in the front of the chute whenever you order it and no matter how many other orders are in front of you. You could drive up and be the only person in the entire place and still get something that had been sat there for 10 minutes.
The only way to guarantee a fresh burger is to order a custom burger that won't be in the chute already.
>It's clearly fake.
Watch the vid, it's actual real life in 'Murrica.
>But then she'd be holding up the people inside the store
But you're not holding up anybody inside the restaurant, as you can step aside once you place you bazillion item order and let others make their orders.
But there are half a dozen registers inside the restaurant where they can take your order, the dive-thru only has two (or even just one lane) and everybody behind her is sitting their with the thumb up their ass while the the 1/2 they've got for lunch ticks away.
The Internet ain't your secret club, jr.
>Eating at Mcdonald's or any fast food place in the first place.
I'm sure someone else would argue that it's just as obnoxious to go inside and hold up the line ordering dozens of specialty items too.
Either way, it's fucking obnoxious to place a shitload of finnicky, autistic orders at any fast food place, regardless of whether it's inside or in the drive-thru.
>I'm sure someone else would argue that it's just as obnoxious to go inside and hold up the line ordering dozens of specialty items too.
Again; there are multiple cash registers inside the restaurant where other customers can get their order taken, a drive-thru only has one or two.
Just because there are multiple registers inside doesn't mean that they're all going to be staffed.
I've been to several fast food places with 2-3 registers and they only ever staff one of them. Similar to how when I go to the supermarket, they have like 30 check out lanes but only 10 of them are open so I still end up standing in line behind 1-3 other people.
I'm not, like, defending these people, but I'd imagine it would take a fuck ton of time to get a bunch of kids out of a car, make them sit still while you ordered and waited, and then got them all back in the car again. I can see why they'd use the drive through, since the kids are already strapped down.
So the whole point of a drive through is to place orders quickly, have them made quickly, then get the fuck out. As in the entire exchange should be able to happen in four minutes or less. If you're sitting there staring at the menu board going "uuuhhhhhhhhhh...." you really should pull out and fucking go inside. If you're ordering a bunch of shit that will take more than two minutes to make, you will be pulled over anyway, so really you should have gone inside to begin with.
If you're just ordering a drink or some fries and a sandwich or two, you're in the right place.
What people don't know or understand unless they've worked at a place with a drive through is that there's a maximum average time. Granted, it's a shitty corporate policy, but sitting there and taking forever to order and/or ordering a ton of food is just a fucking pain for not only the employees but everyone else trying to use the drive through.
It's fast food, so do yourself and everybody else a favor by walking off a few of those calories and coming inside instead of sitting in your car like a sack of lubber.
You're a moron. Places add drive thrus today just to cater to soccer moms as they don't want the hassle of getting all the kids in and out. This also saves mcdonalds the time and effort needed to clean the mess they'll make and the customers that they'll piss off. Is it that hard to drag your fat ass inside?
fucking drive out of the DT lane and leave, you don't need McBettus that bad. I literally wanted a cheat meal at Wendy's today but I pulled in, there was a line, and I left. You don't need to eat that garbage that bad.
i really hate serving families in my restaurant. the kids are always picky little brats who don't know what they want, won't read more than one item on the menu, won't communicate what they want, and won't tell their order directly to me. they always make their parents communicate their pretentious fucking order. no matter how hyperactive and talkative they were on the way in, they turn to stone statues when it's time to make a decision. these parents don't realize how awful this is for their self-confidence, and how much of everyone's time they're wasting going through this act every single time they eat fast food.
>okay tell me what you want
>ok that's the #4 turkey it has mayo lettuce tomato
>do you want tomato
>i want turkey and lettuce
>so you don't want tomato
>how about mayo
>[repeat for every ingredient and side order per shitty chillun]
families with kids are the fuckin worst, whether they're in a drive thru or not.

If a soccer mom is in there making a bazillion item order while half a dozen people are standing behind her, someone will come up front to man another register.
yeah there is only so many people working there, when someone comes with a huge order for a ton of people with many specifics the kitchen is going to get slowed down by it no matter what and it's annoying and stressful for everyone involved because now do you not just have one person with a lot of stuff they want but then you have a quickly building line of angry people that don't know what's going on in there on top of it.

Sure, the kitchen will slow down a bit with a large order but fat food joints are designed to quickly make dozens of orders simultaneously, so this isn't an issue.
The problem with placing a bazillion item order at the drive-thru, is that the kitchen can't begin to make the other people's orders until those customers can pull up to the squawk-box, which is being tied up by one dumbass soccer mom parking her ass in front of it and blabbing away for an hour.
Actually, the drive-thru is for people who don't want to get out of the car for whatever reason. That might include having a pack of kids that they don't want to herd out of the car and into the building with them. Highly illegal and dangerous to leave the kids parked without an adult with them.
