A Post That Might Be About Something But Probably Isn’t

James Proclaims (4)

Sometimes on my way to work I go for breakfast at a place the kids tend to call a ‘Drive Through’ and the really cool kids call a ‘Drive Thru’. Although the specific fast-food chain is irrelevant, I live in the UK, and as far as I am aware there is only one company, the one that is run by a scary clown, that operates a breakfast time ‘Drive Thru’ on these shores, though I believe other brands come into play for the lunch-time trade.

Anyway, I’ve noticed that the person who takes my order through the sort of radio thing at the start of the process, and then subsequently takes my payment at the first window is often quite surly and unhappy about their lot in life. However, when I get to the second window, the person who gives me my order is always upbeat and seems to possess an almost contagious joie de vivre.

Now, perhaps I shouldn’t read too much into this, but it got me thinking.

And I’ve come to the conclusion that I definitely need to make healthier lifestyle choices.

      It’s not even on my way to work, I go out of my way to drive to it. I clearly am my own worst enemy

      I felt it was an important piece of research

    Explanation:
    First person taking order ‘Ugh, here we go, more work.’
    Second person giving you order ‘Woo. Our work here is done.’

    Interesting fact. Having now looked, I am apparently 46 minutes–and 31 miles–from the nearest scary clown branded drive-thru–but obviously the fact I have never had one of their products for breakfast is more due to my incredible discipline and healthy virtue and not the fact that the overriding selling factor of ‘convenience’ is, in my case, inconvenience.

      Yes I think I could avoid the temptation in those circumstances

    A healthier choice would be to walk through next time!

    Last fall I was helping my Dad out with a project that was close to a scary clown place somewhere in Iowa. When it got to around lunch time we decided to walk over and grab a bite to eat. Well, naturally the dining room was closed so we tried walking through the empty drive through. We yelled at the reader board thingy, but were ignored, so we walked up to the window, and the window lady yelled at us and told us that we had to be in a car.

    I mean, can we get a couple hamburgers or something?

    Go up to the front door and if we’re not too busy someone will come out and take your order.

    We looked around at the empty drive-through and grabbed burritos at a Mexican restaurant.

    The sauce of the man… starting at sunnup, flipping, dealing with a surly faced public- hey, you’re gonna get sighs with that, even if you don’t want ’em.
    Also if you think Macs is bad, try Denny’s on a Sunday mourning after the night before.

      It would be nice to have the option of Denny’s at least.

      I feel like that could be a metaphor for more than just my breakfast choices

    All the folks at all the Drive-Thru everywhere in the world are cloned in a facility in Nebraska — be very careful they are not self-aware — yet. cheers
