937. Drive-through

937drivethrough

Darryl was such a nice old man. He was 83. He’d never been through one of those drive in things, where you drive through, order your food on the way, pick it up and pay and keep on driving. One of those fast food places. But Darryl was up to a new experience, so off he went.

First of all he didn’t know how to find out what to order. He was so busy driving. And then the voice at the speaker asked: “Howjuwannitdone? Douwantomatosace?”

Darryl didn’t have a clue what was being said, so he kept on driving. And then the lady at the window when he reached it was all annoyed and Darryl said, “Can I order? And what do I order? How do you do it?” and the lady said “Too late! You’re holding everyone else up, so get on your way.”

So Darryl went on his way and had a blackout and drove his car straight through the front window of the take-away place. If he hadn’t hit four people (the worst injury was a broken leg and a squashed bun) it would’ve been a scream.

    Thank heaven he didn’t kill any one 😀
    I did once witness an older person at the ordering stop, turn his engine off, get out, lock his door and walk up to the window while we all waited in a long tidy line behind his parked car……….. 🙂

      That would be enough to tempt me to toot the horn! I have only used the drive through once or twice, and have to park and walk over to the menu billboard and select, get in the car and then drive through. I suppose if you do it frequently you know what to order.

    Someone should have lifted his license before he tried a drive through. Or he could just sing “Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun”!!!
