When driving through one of my favorite fast food restaurants, I really hate hearing the dreaded “please pull forward, and we’ll have your food right out to you.” When I pull forward, I can usually no longer see what’s going on. Did they forget about me? What’s so difficult about my order? I usually order a numbered combo straight off the menu with no changes. Now, I don’t have any scientific proof to back this up, but I would venture that my order is wrong almost every time I have to pull up. If it’s wrong, I have to exit the car now, and go inside versus just letting them know at the window.
So I recommend the next time you’re asked to pull up, just respond “no thanks, that’s ok, I’m good right here,” and watch the reaction.
