Thank You, Drive Through

Posted by admin - 19/08/10 at 09:08 am

Waiting in the drive-through line at Jack In The Box, this preprinted sign was in the window.

“For your safety, walk-up guests wll not be served at the drive-through window. This includes guests on coasting devices and non-motorized vehicles that have been altered.”

Does that seem a bit unnecessarily specific to anybody else? So I can’t blow through the lane in a sailboat? I can’t don roller blades and jam a mast up my ass and get a Jumbo Jack? I’m not permitted to catamaran the flying dutchman through the drive-through and grab a Deli Trio Panido?

I’m always interested in why certain things happen. Why did the central management of the Jack In The Box corporation Worldwide feel the need to have these signs written, drafted, typeset, proofed, corrected, printed, and shipped to every restaurant on the planet? Was there a major problem with guys on skateboards, scooters, wheelchairs, and Rascals clogging the lane?

By the way, I had plenty of time to take notes on the drive-through signage, since it took forever for them to reach me with my food. Jack In The Box’s slogan is “We Don’t Make It Until We’ve Noticed You Ordered it.”

— Reid Kerr would like fries with that, thanks for asking.

    Heck, Reid, I read a bunch of your postings – you are funny as h***! Just thought I’d check in…by the way, where the heck is Michael Hetrick on KLTV these days? Thought you might know.

    Thanks, Jerome! Hetrick is no longer at KLTV, he just started working with the East Texas Food Bank. He’ll be back with me on the Big Brother podcasts probably next week.
