As Joe Pesci said in Lethal Weapon 2, "They f%#* you at the drive thru."
My wonderful hubby went and got us some dinner tonight at the Jim's, near us. This is a real good hamburger and mexican food place. It has a drive-thru window, which makes it even better. Well I was dieing to have one of their huge juicy hamburgers and some fried zucchini, which DIDN'T happen. I opened the bag and there was his huge double cheese burger and the zucchini and 2 plain burgers. We usually get one plain burger and break it up for the pooches. My huge juicy burger was not there. Usually if this happens we take it back but this time we didn't, I just put the extra stuff on here.
We were f#$%ed at the drive-thru once again. Which brings me to the great question....Have they f$#%@d you at the drive-thru? And how badly?

I once asked them to hold the onions.
When I got home, the *&%$#@! thing was piled high with onions & nothing else.

I don't bother with specifics anymore, since they always treat you like you're being rude.

Still, at least they assemble the darned thing for you.
I really hate going to one of those places that wants $7.99 for a burger, because they never assemble it for you.
The top part of the bun is always on the other side of the plate, the vegies are in an inconvenient place, & the sauces are in these little cups off to the side.
You'd think for $7.99, they'd know how to fix a sandwich, but they don't. They just throw the stuff on a plate & make you fix your own *&%$#@! sandwich.
And that doesn't include a drink.

That's why I prefer fast food, because despite the staff's attitude, $4.99 gets me a burger that's been assembled, and a drink!

The McDonald's drive-thru has actually made me late for work.

A McDonald's restaurant is about a mile away from my job and I pulled up to its Drive-Thru with at least 15-20 minutes to spare before I had to be to work one night.
There was only 1 car ahead of me.  I paid for my meal and waited. 
And waited.  And waited.  And waited...

Finally, after over 10 minutes had passed, the car in front of me, who had obviously ordered one of everything on the menu, pulled away. 
I pulled up to the window only to wait some more.
Then, when the girl finally came up to the wndow she said, "I'm sorry but we're just putting fresh fries in the fryer.  It's going to be several more minutes."

I felt like screaming, "AAAAAGGGHHHHH!"

Since I had already paid for my food, I wasn't about to leave without it.
I finally got it and raced to work.
I'm supposed to be punched in by 10:30 and when I got there the time clock read 10:31.
Dammit!"

I've been married to Poogie for quite a while now and I've noticed that she really is a girl, believe me I've noticed.  Smile

I think a requirement of fast food joints is to hire the most space-head teenagers on Earth. "Over a BILLION ORDERS F#CKED UP".
Whar REALLY p**sed me off once,I gave the young pimple faced mo mo behind the counter a twenty,and asked for two tens,(as I needed exact change to pay the house sitter) and she called the manager,who held my twenty up to the light,making a big production number out of inspecting the thing.When I got y two tens  back,I gave her an exagerrated look of mistrust,and held my  tens up to the light and inspected them!

I cannot count how many times my order has been screwed up in the drive-thru in times past. It doesn't matter what fast food chain it is, either. In these parts not only are they manned by the most space-headed teenagers imaginable, but a large portion of the workers do not speak English very well. Now I make it a point to not budge from the pick-up window until I have inspected all of my food and ensured the order is correct.

Well if they really did "F" you at the drive-thru, I'm sure they'd get a lot more orders.  Wink

Well, at first I thought you were maybe a teenage kid because you had A Bug's Life avatar.
Then, you later mentioned you were married and when you changed your avatar to Elvira, I thought maybe you were an older guy who either really liked Elvira...or were really in touch with your feminine side.

Other than that, I can't recall you ever giving any kind of hint that you were a female.
So naturally, I thought you were a guy.

I was going through our local McDonalds unaware that a power outage had crashed their computerized cash registers, the total for food and drink was $14.22, I gave the young man a $20 bill, he explained about the downed register and then figured the change on a calculator. He said "your change is $34.22", I told him he added the 14.22 to the 20 instead of subtracting it, he tried again, said my change was $20, I then said give me back 3 pennies, 3 quarters, and a five. He called the manager because he thought I was trying to short change him, I had to explain to the guy how I arrived at the change amount by starting at $14.22 and then counting to $20.00, had to do it twice to convince him, I don't think these two were stupid, just mentally lazy due to depending to much on modern technology. At the time though it was really aggravating.

What I always to do after ordering through a Drive Thru speaker is to mention that I'd like that "to go", but I'd like my food unspoiled, so I decide not to say it.

Drive through's are a dangerous beast.  In the rush of service, quality tends to go down, and I've had plenty of moments where the staff have been under the pump and forget an item or two.  A quick check of your items usually solves these issues though.
