tips for keeping drive-thru workers happy:
-only let one
person in the car talk at a time. it is not, i repeat NOT
helpful for 4 people to be shouting what they want all at once.
-if you have a loud, rumbling disel truck, turn it off when you order. we can't hear you over your macho truck.
-be patient. if you ordered four sandwhiches and 6 triple triples and 2 bagels toasted, one with cream cheese and one with butter and peanut butter (grrr) and
a dozen donuts, you will
have to wait. if you want to keep the drive-thru workers really
happy, go into the store and order when you have a massive order!!! people like you hold up the entire line and we get in trouble for not moving through people fast enough.
-be nice. tip once in a while. say, 'keep the change'. joke around. say thank you. it means a lot.
as you may have guessed, i've been working drive-thru at tim horton's for a while now. i like it. usually. today was stressful because we were short-staffed.
i got home from work and the phone rang. i answered it. 'good afternoon, tim horton's, may i take your order?'
