Question About the McDonalds in Herndon (clocktower) - November 9, 2007, 04:16 PM

I've been meaning to ask.... Why the hell is there almost ALWAYS someone standing outside taking orders at the drive thru?? I know the intercom works cuz of a time no one was there I used it. Sometimes they even got 2 people out there -- one taking order and another taking your money.

I asked the ppl before and they gave me a smile and a super vague answer lol

Anybody know?

i FUCKING HATE when they do that at the one by my house. this ass hat will plant himself around the corner from the menu and it goes like this;

me- "im not sure what i want, can i pull up and see the menu?"

non-english speaker- "look tis" *hands me a clip board with just combo's*

me- "i dont want a combo, i want to see whats on the dollar menu"

non-english speaker- *blank look*

me- "el-dollar-o menu-o, whats on it?!"

non-english speaker- *hands me clip board again*

me- "can i see a supervisor?"

non-english speaker- "i supervisor."

me- "honestly i am not surprised... fuck off, have a nice day. VIVA BURGERKING!"

and that is what i normally do, the first time was horrible, i pulled up to the dude, and we play the clip board game. i get frustrated and pull up to the menu and speaker. so asshat at the stand puts on a head set and say "what you want gringo?"

i fucking lost it. got out of the car and went back to the guy and asked him to repeat that bcause the speaker must be broken. he grabbed his shit, ran inside and shut the door. i pulled around, parked, went in, and asked to see the manager, so the same dude comes out. he's the fucking manager. little shit didnt say a word, he hands me $50 worth of gift certificates and walks away.

i fucking HATE the dude that stands outside, may he rot in hell.

I try to be nice to everyone at fast food joints. No matter how dumb they are. I like my food spit free and not touching the floor.

This is a result of an efficiency study that McD's did some years ago. The belief is that it "speeds up" the drive through line. They can walk all the way to the back of the line and call in orders on their McMics and process quicker. However, and this is true, they determined that they can take orders faster than the food order can be processed. Why do they still do it at select stores? Because it gives the customer a "perceived" feeling of improved effeciency. All of this is true.

Do you think that every object in McDonald's is referred to as McWidgetname?

It's pretty apparent that it lowers the wait time. They can take orders, cash, and return food to multiple cars almost at once, otherwise you would have to wait for each person to pull up to each stop, then add in the extra time where no one is being serviced because serviced cars are blocking other non-serviced cars. A lot of the places I've seen around here have limited drive through space, so traffic starts backing up into the streets. Jesus, people will complain about everything - even things that are actually helping them out.
