So today, to splurge and reward my children for being soooo good while I went Visiting Teaching, I promised a rare trip through the drive-thru. Yeah, yeah, I know we can’t really afford it right now, but I have a little stash for treats.
There was a bit of a line, and the car windows were down to alleviate the complaining of hot, hungry kids. Clearly, I could listen to the car in front of me placing her very, very long order- burger after burger- andcrackly intercom girl squawked out her total of $29. Yowza! I admit, all I was thinking, as I placed my order for three kids meals with milk, was that this was going to take forever. My kids were hot and grumpy, and was too.
Wait. Wait. Wait… Wait some more.
As I finally pulled up to the window, the girl began to hand bags out to me- first, three kids meals, three milks, and then four more large bags… wait, this doesn’t make sense- “Uh, miss, I don’t think this is my order… I had three kids meals, and that was all.
I hand the four bags back through the window, and the girl calls her manager over. He looks at the ticket and asks me what I ordered. Repeating it again, he looks befuddled. “OK ma’am, I think we gave your order to the car ahead of you, and this is theirs. We have to throw it away since you handled the bags-Do you want it? We’ll fix you your order right now, and we’re really sorry.”
So, while I patiently (*snerkle*) waited for my correct food, they handed over the four ginormous bags of burgers the lady ahead of me ordered! All $29 worth!
So for the price of three kids meals with milk, I have eight enormous burgers, a chicken sandwich, three more kids meals, and six french fries. Ha! David’s going to be happier than a pig in poop when he gets home! AND I don’t have to cook dinner.
