It looks like their interface is a straight-up .NET WPF and incredibly simple (which it would need to be I guess).  I'm betting the only third party tools they use are for interfacing and/or doing things like that video showing the drive-thru.

They find out which order goes to which car by matching orders with cars.

It's not news...

Fapping still okay? Asking for a friend.

A McDonald's worker has revealed the secrets behind drive-thru order

Secrets? Really? They have like eleventy gazillion employees. You know one. You might have been one. They don't have any secrets.

Ha, next time I'll pick my dog's nose, since she's usually with me.

You can pick your nose.

You can pick your friends.

Picking your friend's nose is just weird.

No they don't. They always have to manually verify at the window what they think my order was, and once in a while it's someone else's order.  They're guessing.

I always thought a funny prank would be to hook into the speaker system, and have two people in a van intercept each side of the conversation once and a while. They could act belligerent to the actual customer and server, change the order up, generally be obnoxious.

Have somebody inside to catch the Karenning that  would inevitably ensue.

Of course, the main problem is that there would be consequences for the victims of the prank, and in the age of CCW, it could get violent, too.

...so all I can do it play it out virtually, in my imagination. It would be glorious, if it wasn't such a bad idea IRL.

There nothing more humiliating than having a fast food worker looking down on you from their lofty heights.

Agreed.  They probably have cameras in some but definitely not all.

That seems like what we should expect a drive-thru to have.

...and I farking hate the Daily Fail site. Half the time I am trying to scroll down, it interprets it as a side swipe and gives me some other article that I din't want.

Video only at the ordering speaker with no retained info for car/order for places with 2 speakers doesn't tell you how the drivers will succeed/fail at zipper merging.

Have it "your way"! Special orders are no problem.

I went through the McD drive-thru on Atlantic Ave recently and the video screen pulled up my previous order and the guy on the speaker box just asked me if I wanted the exact same order, which I did. Must be scanning license plates. Nice and efficient!

Pick it from the options provided by your plastic surgeon like a normal person.

McDonalds have coupons in their phone apps. So if you login to one you can get some money off. I average about 2 dollars off an order.

'So maybe don't pick your nose when you order - because we see it and we judge you,' she said.

Oh nooo, McDonald's order taker is going to judge me. Only wish they would tell me my score they judged me at. I'm sure I get a perfect 10 each time.

Not during a pandemic!

After that, what the hell do we care? Weirder sh*t going on out the world, I guarantee.

It's brilliant is what it is!

How did they come up with that novel strategy, and how do they combat people switching cars between ordering, and recieving the food? After all, the cars do not eat burgers, but the people inside do.

This system must not be in all locations.

I am always asked, "Did you order the . . . " when I pull up to the Pay window. Even when I get to the Pick-up window they have tried to hand me wrong things. I never order soda and it is not rare to be offered a cup of something when I pull up.

Either that, it shows you that if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.
 
2021-01-21 3:35:13 PM  
Yup. The system takes a picture of your vehicle and makes it the background of your order.

It's not rocket surgery, it's McDonald's.

Also never judge your customers. I'll admit I used to do that but it is awful for business long term.
