Fun At the Drive-Thru
Stand close to the speaker and yell your order,
using colorful expletives in ways which would embarrass the
After ordering, cover the speaker and mic with transparent tape.
Watch as customers and order- takers are unable to hear each other
and, thus, each raises his/her volume.
Speak a foreign language (make one up if you have to).
When the manager comes to the mic,
speak English and inquire as to why the order taker
had such difficulty understanding you.
Attempt to take the order-takers order
(“Hi, may I take your order?”) before they get a chance to take yours.
Order confusing items, i.e.,
“Hi, I’ll have a large orange Coke and a small medium fries, please”.
In a crowded drive-thru line, place a HUGE order,
then slip out of line and watch the fun as the person behind
you is handed 40 bags of food.
When you arrive at the window to pick up your food,
hand them several bags of garbage & ask if they’ll dispose
of it for you. Make sure it smells.
Drive through with a carload of naked people.
Speak in such a garbled fashion that the order-taker
will think there is a problem with the speaker
and ask you to order at the window.
When you arrive at the window,
speak in the same garbled, incomprehensible fashion.
Drive through with someone on the hood to accept the food.
Bring along a Mr. Microphone.
When the order-taker speaks, aim the mic at their speaker
but do so while aiming the Mr. Microphone speaker
at the mic to produce excruciating feedback of their own voice.
Have a friend hide in the trunk.
When you approach the window to pickup your order,
have him start yelling and banging his fists on the trunk.
If you are a male, have a female friend place the order
by speaking VERY seductively and suggestively into the speaker.
When she finishes, have her hide and pull up to accept your order.
See how many of the order-takers fellow employees
have been called over to the window to “check out the babe”.
All of the above work very well when done at the late night pick
