One of my kids’ favorite things to mock me about is my problem with ordering at a drive thru. I was at Tim Horton’s one day, waiting, waiting, waiting, oh so patiently, for the person “in the speaker” to pleasantly say, “Welcome to Tim Horton’s, may I take your order?” After what I thought was a reasonable wait, I said, “Hello?” No response. I repeated my “Hello” about three times, each time getting a little louder and a little angrier. Finally I rudely bleated out, “IS ANYBODY THERE?” (Mind you, there are cars behind me piling up and watching) I suddenly hear a faint, “could you pull up please, ma’am?” I realized I was screaming into the garbage can, which looks amazingly similar to the speaker, I think.
Check it out next time you’re there.
