What it's like to work in the drive-thru

Me: "Welcome to Chick-Fil-A, would you like to try our new peppermint-chocolate chip milkshake?"
Customer: "No thank you."
Me: (Waiting for the customer to continue talking, but she doesn't) "Alright, I can take your order whenever you're ready."
Customer: "Isdljhfwouldljhsdfjhlikejhdsfhjalyrwhnnvfouroljsadhfcountljhadfoukidsljshdfguohmeal."
Me: "I'm sorry, can you repeat that?"
Customer: "Iwouldlikeafourcountkidsmealplease."
Me: I'm sorry ma'am, can you speak a little slower for me, I'm having trouble understanding you."
Customer: "I........ Want....... A...... Four....... Count.......Chick..... en...... Nug..... get...... Kids..... Meal....."
Me: "Alrighty, and what would you like to drink with that?"
Customer: "Yes, please."
Me: (Pause in disbelief.) "WHAT would you like to drink with that?"
Customer: "Oh, well what drinks do you have?"
Me: "We have coke products, ma'am"
Customer: "Okay, I'll take a diet Pepsi."
Me: (Slowly shakes head.) "Anything else, ma'am?"
Customer: "Yeah, can I get one of those new mint shakes?"

You can't make this up.

But, despite things like that, I like my job. We have a guy who comes in wearing a cowboy hat, wranglers and flannel. His name is Dusty. Makes me think of :Life of the Cowboys" every time I see him, which makes me miss listenign to Prairie Home Companion.


  1. 1. Super funny story. I'm glad I talk to people face to face.
    2. I see so many wranglers and cowboy hats, I've stopped noticing. And I've counted 36 pickup trucks in the three mile drive from my home to town. And I nearly ran over a chicken crossing the road yesterday. Not even kidding.
    3. I grew up on Prairie Home Companion. Love it. So. Much. Do you listen to other NPR shows? You might like The World Cafe and Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.

  2. I don't listen to the radio at all anymore, but I loved listening PHC, Car talk, Wait Wait, and From the Top. Fresh Air was usually good

    We have tons of puckups here, but there's a big difference between cowboys and rednecks
