Dear Mc Donald's Drive-Thru Person,

I was at your establishment today purchasing a delicious iced mocha with low fat milk when it occurred to me that I could never handle your job. I cannot imagine taking orders on that little head-set thingy whilst making change at the window and simultaneously working the cash register.

If I were forced to take a position such as yours, I would be fired immediately upon being discovered cowering on the floor hiding from the tiny sliding window weeping quietly.

Hats off to you, Mc Donald's Drive-Thru Person.
P.S. The iced mocha I purchased was not nearly as delicious as the iced mochas at the Rock & Roll Mc Donald's near my home. Clearly one must be working in the shadow of neon to make a superior iced drink. Nonetheless, good job with the multi-tasking.

Just don't order a black coffee!!!

I agree. Whenever I go to that McD's drive thru with the double lane ordering system, I'm overwhelmed for them! How do they not mix up the orders??
Hmmm, atleast I hope it's no indication as to how I'll multitask as a nurse, considering your job, Miss Sara, although you are much smarter than the average bear!

I don't multi-task very well myself. :)

have i ever told the story of my illustrious mcdonald career last november?

anyway, i decided that i wanted extra money for christmas. was going to work a few nights a week. got hired. go into work in that lovely mcdonald's uniform. i watch a 20 minute video on the different jobs you can do at mcdonald's. you know cashier, fries, burger flipper, toilet cleaner, etc. the manager then throws me into the drive thru. i am responsible for filling bags with orders, getting drinks and condiments, handing bag out the window. all this after a 20 minute video.

the cooks keep yelling at me to clear the screen. i have no idea what they are talking about.

after a whopping hour and a half, i am having a full blown panic attack. gasping for breath and all that fun stuff. i walk back to the manager's office and quit.

i made an extra $14 for christmas.
