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.
