Are You Kidding? Pet Peeves #3

Posted on Monday, May 31, 2010 in Site News

Ok…  I’ll admit it.  My biggest vice is fast food.  Totally unhealthy, but I much prefer looking up at my menu rather than down.  (Think about it.  You’ll get it) So, how does this fit into my pet peeves series?  Let me tell you…

One of the best features of fast food is that it is FAST!  Any action that turns it into Slow Food is a target for me.  Fast food drive thru’s are pet peeve magnets.  Let’s start with the pre-menu.  This is the menu board designed for the car next in line to order.  While one waits for the speaker board to become available, decisions on the order can be made.  However, when the menu at the speaker board is available, why do people insist on stopping and staring at the pre-menu?  Really?  Why not pull up to the Order Here sign and do just that?

While were on this topic, why does it take some people so long to place an order?  Has the menu changed that much?  Don’t most establishments have the same basic items?  If it’s going to be that tough a decision, park your car and venture inside…

Finally, why do some of you have to place 4 separate orders for each of your co-workers?  Is it really that tough to place one order and figure out the finances? Yikes!

It really is quite simple.  Let’s keep fast food fast!!

Thank you for your help.
