Not a drive-thru story, but back when the movie "Babe" came out McDonald's had Babe Happy Meals (with adorable little stuffed animal prizes!). I went in and asked if I could get one with a bacon burger. The guy at the counter just stared at me blankly. Either he had no sense of irony whatsoever or he had heard that joke already a thousand times.

The drive thru lines at Dunkin Donuts are way longer than just parking, walking in,and getting the right order in person.

I was a cop working DUI enforcement many years ago and drove through a Taco Bell because it was the only place open at 4:00 am. I got to the window and the girl tells me the guy behind me sounded really, really drunk when he ordered. I got my order and pulled into the parking lot and waited. A few seconds later the guy pulls out and drives over the curb so I stop him. Of course he was wasted so neither of us got to eat our tacos.

On one hand, that should result in extra charges, interrupting food should be a crime.

On the other hand... it's Taco Bell, so he could have accidentally saved your life.

Another cop drive-up story: Middle of the night and the 24 hour Burger King calls and says a drunk guy passed out in their drive through. I get there at the same time as Fire Rescue and an employee is outside next to a car in which a guy was unconscious behind the wheel. The Burger King kid tells me the guy ordered, and then coasted by the pick up window passed out like he still was. He missed the hard left at the end of the drive up and ended up in the juniper bushes. I go to wake the guy up and notice he isn't breathing, so I tell the paramedics. They start working him and eventually end up taking him to the hospital still unconscious. A paramedic tells me it appears the guy had a heart attack, and I tell him it must have been pretty serious. Paramedic says "Yeah, it was a real whopper" and we laughed.

Back in the mid-80s, I had an after-school job at a now-extinct creature, the drive-through photo booth. One day this guy in a vintage Mustang drove up to pick up his pictures. I commented on his sweet ride. The guy said it needed a wash, and it was a cloudy day, so I should really look at the great pics he's taken. Then he got out of his car, put the picture envelope on the counter, and took the pictures out to show me.

So he's flipping the pictures over, one by one, all pics of the car from various angles. Then he flips one more, and I suddenly see a pic of someone lying face-down on the car hood, spread-eagle, obviously humping the Mustang, his hairy balls and erection there in all their glory. I couldn't tell if it was the guy driving the car or if he was taking a picture of a friend, but in any case, he immediately began turning a dark, almost turnip-like shade of red, said "sorry about that", gathered up the pictures, got back in his car, and drove away.

I never saw the guy again. I assume he took his future car-farking picture business to a competing photo chain.

Truro NS has a regular livestock auction.  4H kids who would stop for a lunch on their way home with their project goat, pig, calf etc lying in the back seat of their car was fairly common.

We had one guy that came through late in the evening almost every night for a long while and order a 'Mchotdog' and then argue with the drive through girl when she told him there was no such thing.

We had another guy show up around 3 AM with an almost empty 40oz bottle of vodka in his passenger seat, stumble through his order and then proceed to finish off the bottle while waiting for the order. We called the cops.

Many years ago, after the bar closed, my friends and I stopped off at McDonald's for some food on the way home. I ordered nuggets, but what I got was a nugget box just stuffed full of bacon. I wasn't even mad. I ate the hell outta that bacon.

Meh, my only drive thru story, girlfriend in college worked at McDonalds.  I would order a "small root beer." Code word.  Pay for a  small root beer and drive away with two big macs, large fries and a large coke.   Good times.

Sometime after that the grill guy finished cleaning the warming trays and tried to put the bacon back in the correct place only to discover his mistake. Then he ate the nuggets and made more bacon.

I don't have any interesting drive through stories.  However, about a month ago I was in the drive through lane at the local McDonalds and ordered a Big Mac Trio - nothing custom in the order, just a regular Big Mac Trio.
I had to wait 25 minutes to get my order.  I could have gone into the restaurant, ordered my trio and eaten it in the same amount of time (although I later found out that going inside isn't any quicker).
When I got to the pickup window I asked the employee why a Big Mac Trio takes 25 minutes to order in the drive through lane.  She replied in a sarcastic tone saying "Uh....We Are Cooking the Food!"
I didn't quite expect that reaction....

It's also bullshiat.  The patties used in a big mac take 36 seconds to cook on the clamshell grill, are prepared 9 at a time and all but the smallest of stores has more than one clamshell grill.  The buns are toasted in seconds, and everything else is cold.  Fries take less than 20 minutes to cook but I don't remember the exact time because fries were the counter girls job when I worked there.

Fries take less than 2 minutes....

Not proud of it, but when I worked the drive through window at my local McD's 30 years ago, I used to overcharge the customers on their orders by .25-.50 cents each. If it was a huge, complicated order, maybe a whole buck. Got called out on it a couple times by regular customers who placed the same order whenever they came, but was always able to say 'Uh, I'm a dumb teenager, I made a mistake'. Otherwise, no one had a clue (staff or customers), and on weekends I could pick up $75 to $100.

I went to Taco Bell once, and they said they were out of beans.

Out.

One time they told me they couldn't serve anything with meat because the "meat gun" was broken.

O.o   I feel sorry for the poor schmuck who had to develop that pic.

For those of you familiar with Sonic drive-in restaurants, you might have noticed that many of them are starting to put touch screens at each station so that you can see your order as the person taking it is building it. This allows you and the order-taker to catch mistakes before it goes to the kitchen. Convenient! Innovative!

In my hometown, there are three Sonics, all of which are owned by the same person. One of them employed, at least for a while, one of the densest fast-food employees I've ever encountered (which, taking into account the average fast-food employee, is saying something).

The last time I went there (which will forever be the last time), it was me, my wife, our daughter, and my sister.

I ordered:
#2 with lettuce and mustard only, fries, and a green apple slush
#2 with pickles only, dry, tater tots, Route 44 Dr Pepper with lime, vanilla, and blue coconut
kids meal chicken nuggets, apple sauce, and lemonade
Hot dog with mustard and cheese, tater tots, and cherry vanilla Dr Pepper

(A little complicated, but not overly so.)

What showed up on the screen was:
#2 with lettuce, mustard, and pickles, fries, lime vanilla slush
2 hot dogs with chili and cheese, tater tots, and Diet Dr Pepper
(not kids meal) chicken strips, tater tots, and limeade

I say, no, none of that is right, clear it out and let's start over.

We then end up with:
#2 with no modifications, fries, lime slush
#2 with pickles and mustard, fries, regular Dr Pepper
kids meal chicken nuggets, fries, lemonade
hot dog with chili, cheese, and mustard, fries, and regular Dr Pepper

After another iteration, finally the shift manager came outside and took our order on paper. I asked if the microphone at our station was having problems, and she muttered something about "No, I was listening, it's working just fine."

Then we finally got our food...about half and hour later. But at least it was what we ordered.

/same Sonic, many years earlier, gave the same sister a hot dog with chili and cheese when she ordered just cheese and mustard
//they took it back and sent out a new one, with chili and cheese...but no hot dog...just chili, cheese, and bun

My brother once ordered a McChicken at a local McDonalds, "no shredded lettuce, add cheese."

He gets a bun, some shredded lettuce, and some mayo.

He wasn't happy.
