This didn't happen to me, but a coworker told me this little drive thru gem.

CW = Coworker
CL= Confused Lady

CW: "If everything is correct on your screen, your total comes to $x.xx"
CL: "Ok. Make it to go. Not for here."
Everyone in the store : ???

So the lady pulls up, coworker takes her cash,hands her the change, and turns around to get the food. CW hears a tapping noise and opens the window.

CL: "Please don't put it on a tray. I want it to go."

Well, just to see the reaction, I've always wanted to tell them that my order is for here, after all, I'm likely to be eating in my car.

Well, according to my coworker, she really meant it.

Maybe she thought it was like one of those old fashioned drive ins?

Yeah, I got nothing.

I actually have had customers say "To go" to me when I worked at McDonalds years ago. Didn't happen often, but it was funny when it did. First few times we just shrugged it off. But then it seemed to happen more often. So we started putting stuff on the trays just to mess with people. Most just got a laugh out of it.

is it wrong when I used to work for the star that I occasionally would ask if people in the drive though whether they wanted it to stay or to go :ashamed: (i worked both counter and drive and yes, I did tell people at the counter occasionally to pay at the window :ashamed: )

At In-n-Out Burger they DO ask if you are eating it in your car or want it to go. If "in the car" they give it to you in a box with a (paper) place mat. If "to go" they bag it. So the question of "is this to go?" is a valid one in this context! (I know, it through me first when I encountered it there. But when you understand why they ask, it does make sense.)

I would have been so tempted to put the food on a tray, grab a bag and bag it at the window.:devil:

I've gotten the "I want this to-go" in the drive-thru many times. It always makes me laugh. :D

How to be Annoying number 16:
When using the Drive-Thru, specify your order is "to go"

Well, just to see the reaction, I've always wanted to tell them that my order is for here, after all, I'm likely to be eating in my car.

When I worked as a pizza driver, I often wore a T-shirt (our uniform was jeans, a non-offensive shirt, and company-issued hat) that had printed on it: "Is that for here or to go?"

Most of my customers who weren't drunk or distracted by screaming children would see the shirt and laugh. It made one guy really stop to think, though. He said, "Well, now that's an interesting question! I don't know how to answer it. It's 'for here' because I'll be eating it here in my house, but it's 'to go' because you brought it to me..."

That was one of my favorite shirts.

Just what I was thinking. I think I still have that list in my email archives, but I'm not ambitious enough to go looking for it.

when i worked for an Arctic Circle (arsenic circle or arctic choke) there was this elderly lady who came through regularly at the drive thru. she always specified "to go" and was very insistant about it. she seemed very confused and when i thought about it, it scared me that she was still driving... But i've also had people come through the drive thru and order, then tell me "to stay"... but then they came inside to pay and get there food... By the way, this was the side of town where people did a lot of crack cocaine.
