Just the other day, fellow blogger Crotchety Old Man wrote about an experience he had with a drive thru bank teller. His post was hilarious.
His experience reminded me of a favorite “trick” of a friend.
But before I tell you about what he did, let me say that there are a lot of good people who work at fast food places and do a wonderful job. There are also some disasters. I am not lumping into one category or generalization all fast food employees. Not at all.
Anyway, this friend liked to go to the drive thru of a fast food restaurant, place his order and then ask if this could be made “to go.”
Well, obviously, all drive thru orders are “to go” ones. It’s just that people don’t usually state the obvious when placing such orders.
On one particular occasion, I was in the car with this friend when we drove up to place an order. He asked for two ice cream cones.
Then, when the order-taker asked if that would be all, my friend asked, “Could you make that order to go?”
There was dead silence for a moment.
Finally, the girl replied: “Sir, I don’t know if we can do 'to go' orders at the window.”
Yep, that’s what she said!
And, besides that, is there any other way to get an ice cream cone?
