I don't have time for a lot of things...
Least of all, time to drag 7 children out of the car and into McDonald's when all we want
is to cash in a few freebie coupons!
Not to mention that the baby is sleeping-so I'm REALLY not going to go in.
Aaaaahhh! Drive throughs.Wonderful.
I think a Mom invented them.
And so, like so many other Mommies in a rush, I pull into the drive threw.
There is one catch, though.
My driver's side window is broken. Can't go down-if it slides down-can't go back up.
I am on strict orders to NOT TOUCH THE WINDOW!Well, I'm a busy Mommy,
but also a resourceful Mommy!
I just pull up to the little talking order taking machine and...open my door!
No problem! Since the window broke-I've done this many times.
I'm far past feeling embarrassed about it-it's just the way it's got to be!
Until today.While trying to give my order to the talking order taking machine, I hear a loud, booming, man voice from behind my truck. I have a suburban. It's long. And the engine is running. And I'm talking. This was a loud voice.
"AAAWW! JUST GO INSIDE!!!!!"
Maybe "growled" would be a better word for it.
I was stunned.Being harassed in the drive threw? Why? Because I had my door open instead of my window down? Why should he care?? Or, maybe it was the large number of coupons I was holding and ordering with that perhaps made him panic we might be all day?
I (already having my head out my door, mind you), answered him,
"I can't. I have A LOT of children in the car and one is sleeping."
He continued to say more but at this point I was flustered and trying to focus on my Caramel Frappe!!
When I was at the window, ready to pay, I apologized to the cashier that she could not hear my order. I explained that the driver behind me had yelled at me.
He, still having his window down apparently, started yelling again,
"WHAT!? I did not yell at you! Come on! Give me a break! You are exaggerating!"
"If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone."
Even, crazy, impatient, growly, men behind you at Micky D's!!!
