Dear Drive Thru employee

Just a few wee tips:

1. Making me wait to give you my money while you finish texting is Not Good Form.

2. In a similar vein, doing a double take when you finally look at me, and saying "Whoa! Rough night??" is also Bad Form.

3. Doing the above two things and then burning my bagel? Very nearly the Straw that Made Me Talk To The Manager. However, you may BE the manager, and I don't have the emotional fortitude to get through that particular scenario.

Reading about your experience on this side, especially the "whoa, rough night" made me laugh. Sorry. That is an extremely rude thing for someone to do.

Once I went through a drive through and the guy had to have me repeat myself several times, which was not big deal. But then I asked him to repeat something, and he got VERY sarcastic and rude. So I said something to the effect of "Forget my order. You are very rude, and I'm not ordering." This is not my typical behavior. When I drove on by, he was standing looking down and not at me. I realized that my speech had probably been heard by everyone in the place. Hopefully it was a lovely learning experience for him.

Ugh. Sorry you had to suffer a fool. Shake it off.

But on the other hand, you know, you could use that in a book. LOL.

dude!

I don't even know how I would respond to that. I am typically pretty patient and all, but I quite possibly would have cried.

QOTW, your story is good, too. I think it's pretty good that you said something.

and this is just another reason why I'm grateful my son chose to work at a place that is manned primarily by mature adults. Not another 15 year old in the place. Perhaps he will learn from someone as fun and perceptive as you.
