Working the Drive-thru...

As I pulled away from the drive-thru window at Chic-fil-a grabbing dinner this evening, I started thinking about how pleasant the people working there were and then I started thinking about how nice my first job at McDonalds was when I was just a fresh high school graduate and sometimes wish I could go back to working the drive thru window....


  • when the only things I had to worry about on the job were making sure to get the fries out of the grease and skim it regularly;

  • having to tell a customer that the shake machine was on the fritz and I couldn't sell them one (or worse, actually having to clean the shake machine);

  • or the time when we ran out of Happy Meal toys and tried to substitute plastic spoons (yeah, not one of the shining moments in my golden arches career).

It was such an easier life and somedays (especially days like this) I really think about throwing my hands up and going back to that easy life of asking "would you like fries with that?".... Heck, I'd even be willing to go back to the nasty brown, polyester uniform....

Ah well, I can dream, right?

Brown polyester, no way!

what I remember most was the yummy odor of stale grease you girls had when you came home!

there is something comforting about jobs where your problems completely get left at the door when you leave :)

That's shocking about the CFA staff. Have you been there when they do the face2face ordering? do they do that all the time now?
