I have discovered a solution to a long standing restaurant puzzle.

I have discovered a solution to a long standing restaurant puzzle.

The employees ask you what you want immediately when you come within range of the food counter. They never, ever, ever, give you time to examine the menu before speaking to you. Not one time have I seen it happen. You can ignore them, of course, but it doesn't help because they tend to just keep repeating themselves until you answer. I've never had enough time to read the menu.

I've figured it out though, finally. To give yourself uninterrupted time to peruse the menu without mindless drones pestering you, go outside, on foot, to the drive thru menu. The workers will not speak to you there, if you are not in an automobile. You can have all the menu time in the world. As a bonus, outdoor menus tend not to be the digital type that changes constantly before you are done reading.

the struggle is over.

      I suspect I will do extremely well as a non-functioning member of society, however.

    That's because most people already know what they want. If you're a new customer, or somebody who wants to constantly try something different, all you have to say is, "I need a minute to decide." There you go, anon. No need to weirdly linger at the drive-through on foot. Please stop engaging in sperg behavior.

      I don't justify myself to anybody. They serve me, not the other way around, anyway.

          They're trying to trick you into not examining the prices. I just leave if I'm in a bad mood because I know I'll snap at them otherwise. If I'm feeling cheeky I sometines ask for something they probably don't have and when they say they don't I muse that I probably should have read the menu before ordering.

          They can pick up cues. If walk up to them looking towards them and trying to get their attention, I'm probably ready to order. If I'm standing back and staring up at the menu, there's a pretty good chance I'm not.

        they're there to make as much money as possible for themselves and for their boss.
        just order a drink to drink while you read the menu and make your choice.

      Places without drive thrus are sitdowners and they give you time to read the menu.

    Thanks for this post, OP, you have solved for me a long standing restaurant puzzle of my own.

    Generally, in my experience driving into a shithole city for my job, there are many people standing outside fast-food restaurants next to the drive-thru menu.

    Previously, I thought these were mentally-ill drug addicts offering unsuspecting customers blowjobs for Big Macs or trying to use their prison shank to free the demons hiding inside their flesh bodies.

    I've figured it out though, finally. Thanks to your post I now understand that these are just mentally-ill Culinaly posters who can't complete simple social interactions.

    The struggle is over.

    Here they come to the counter and awkwardly stare at you for the five whole minutes it takes me to decide what I want. Fricking stupid I doubt they enjoy it either.

    99% of the people who come into the slop shop are just robotically ordering the exact same shit as every other day of their life. Doubtful they have even tried half the menu either. You are a serious exception for even attempting to think about what you want to order. Even among the irregular customers most will do recon on the website or app before going inside and have decided, wisely avoiding this very unnecessary wagie interaction. In any case, walking to the drive-thru menu is likely the most moronic and autistic way to approach this out of all options.

    Do you have poor eyesight or has it just never occurred to you to read the menu without approaching the counter?

      It did occur to me. I go outside to the drive thru menu now. It's nowhere near the counter.
