I admit; I do the drive thru line thing at lunch alot. I have only about 20 minutes to get out and get food and get back.
Del Taco is a fast food mexican place like Taco Bell only much better. The best thing its cheap. I can get a taco, a small burrito and a medium ice tea for $2.30.
So I drive through. There is one car ahead of me. Its one of those newer VW bugs (which I think are ugly) I see two women in it. There is an DT employee outside taking orders. They chat back and forth for at least 10 minutes. The line behind me is now backing up and a mess. I finally get my turn and say "good grief what were they doing - refinancing a house???" She replies "No but close. They ordered $38 worth of food - enjoy your wait!!!" Obviously she was as ticked as I!
OK People - Drive thru etiquette:
1) Before you get in line have some idea what you want. Don't spend time asking "so...what's in that?" or "How big are the portions?" If you have questions, GO INSIDE!
2) 2 order per car maximum - period. Only exception is a mom with some kids. Otherwise GO INSIDE!
3) Don't change your order at the pick up window. Get it right the first time. If you have a grievance, GO INSIDE!
4) If you are lonely, go to park and annoy people there. Telling the employee your life story is not OK especially when there are people behind you!
This is my public service annoucement... have a good day!
BTW I had to wait 16 minutes for my food because it took that long to complete the stupid womens' order. With the 10 minutes before I was late back to work. Not cool!
