It is a major operation for my family to order at drive through windows. Sure, there are five of us, but apparently we are complicated. Or picky.
Nothing ordered is as it is on the menu. We have to hold something or have extra of something. I swear that I can hear the cashiers fighting over who will have to take our order when our car rolls up. Of course, we could plan ahead and write it down but that would make sense and make it easier, and the confusion becomes a form of our entertainment. What’s the fun in being all organized and efficient?
The only trouble is that the lack of it can impact the accuracy of our order and then the complaints get on the heavy side. And that is a good way to kill an appetite. Or someone in the backseat. Just kidding.
It probably takes a village to fill our order – a more accurate description for this post.
Now I dread drive through windows just like a visit to the dentist. Both drills give me a headache, empty my wallet and cause me to ponder the number of cavities in my head. However, I get a new toothbrush and floss at the dentist in a cute little bag. They are much more practical than the crappy toys I have been stepping on for years and we do all leave the dentist with fresh breath.
“The art of giving orders is not to try to rectify the minor blunders and not to be swayed by petty doubts.”
