    I went on lunch break and decided to go to a fast food place (I don't know why, fast food is nasty). And of course the car in front of me had to order a whole bunch of food. The person working the window handed this person about 3 full bags of food and a large tray of drinks. And just to make it even more annoying, the vehicle of course was a huge obniouxios SUV.

    All together this person held up the line for about 10 minuts at the window alone. Then on top of that, the person pays with a debit card, so it took even longer. THEN the person sits at the window for another few minuts and goes though the bags of food to make sure everything is there. In the meantime the line is getting huge and i'm getting pissed becaue all I did was order 3$ worth of food and I had to spend half my lunch break wating for this A-hole.

    If you order a lot of food, then go inside like you are suppose to. What is with these people?

    The person could have pulled up to check that they got the order properly but other than that I've never heard of this "rule" that when you're ordering a lot of food you're supposed to go in. Of course maybe it's a well-known rule in Bad Brains' bizarro-land, where all people that drive SUVs are a-holes.

    Actually it was probably a very very very busy mom. Going inside would mean dragging in all her kids, or leaving them alone.

    There is nothing wrong with this... pack a lunch next time. :rolleyes:

    Drive-by @ the drive-in. You would have felt better.
  6. There's really no reason to all pissy and complain about it. That kinda stuff happens to everyone. Reminds me of my Stepdad, hates fastfood cause he has zero tolerance of any kind of slight inconvinance( I'm pretty sure I didn't spell that right) .

    Just relax about it .

    Yeah, I hate fast food too. Especially going through the drive-through. If I absolutely have to eat at one'a those joints, I usually just go inside. You? :bag:

    I think it has something to do with some obscure mafia rule.

    I make it a general rule in life to not let these types of things annoy me. I've been in your situation, and I have felt the same way at first. Then, a little compassion sets in, and I think something along the lines of Matt's suggestion. It's all good brutha!

  10. maybe you should have gone in...

    I think you'd have been justified opening up a can of whoopass on the driver. You probably should have shot the register chick too. The enviroment would have thanked you.

    My only complaint would've been that she didn't pull the car up and THEN check the food.

    I only really get irritated when people order something complex and then nitpick every little thing "Excuse me I wanted extra pickles" WHO GIVES A SH...IRT..?!

    +infinity I should add this to my food addiction thread. It's about the only place I go for chicken now. I just wish there was one alittle closer.

    But you are suppose to go in if you order a bunch of food. It's common courtsy. If you are going to oder a whole bunch of food then it's much better to talk them in person instead of screaming all this stuff over the speakers.

    It's the same thing as the express line at the market. It says 12 items or less but often times some people roll up with a cart full of stuff.

    They should make a rule for this.

    Waiting for the inevitable bad brains thread, "Don't you hate it when you are standing in line at a fast food restaurant and someone orders 3 bags of food to go? Don't they know that to go orders are why they have drive thru windows?"

    You whine like a 12 year old cheerleader who lost her pom poms. :bawl:

    No, you're not "supposed" to go in if you want to order a lot of food. It is not common courtsy, either. You're only supposed to go in when you eat there (I know a couple og dudes who work fast food)... I dunno why they ask "for here or to go" when there's a drive through :p. Really though either way is an inconvience for someone when a large amount of food is ordered. You are just mad cos it happened to inconvience you for the whole 10 minutes it took, which IMHO, is rather selfish.
    People shouldn't be in such a damn hurry anymore.
    Next time, pack your own lunch. It's healthier, and no one has to hear you complain about how it took 10 minutes to get some food :rolleyes:.
