My Honda Civic is like a race car. The Parking lots of most fast food places are marked off like little racetracks. I usually time the first couple of laps and try to beat my time before the police show up and then the race is on.... I haven't been caught yet. My favorite course is the Taco Bell by the Mall as it is just big enough to be fun and the girl that runs the window is kind of cute so I try to showoff for her and because it is by the mall there are a lot places to escape too... After 3 police cars start racing it gets kind of crowded and stops being fun.... Plus only I know where the start finish line is so I always win....

I have no idea where I am
Several years ago, on behalf of the non-profit organization I belong to, I walked up to a drive through bank ( it was drive thru only ) to make a deposit and was told that I would need to come back in a car.

I like riding a bike through drive throughs, and seeing if they'll serve me or not. I've tried it at a couple of mickey ds, and been asked to come back in a car, or go inside. The In-N-Out near here doesn't mind me coming through on a bike, but the girl at the counter got sort of annoyed the time I rolled through on my longboard. I still got served, but she asked me to go to the regular counter next time.

At Tim Horton's on Friday, the drive-thru line extended out of the parking lot and into the street....messing up traffic. Not a single person in line at the counter. I was in and out in under 90 sec. Everyone is stupid but me.

what he said, something about tiny lanes with walls not fitting 23 foot long trucks trying to make 90* turns.:rant:

My van barely fits through most and my next truck won't for sure.
I've found that this has a positive effect though - because its such a hassle, I tend to avoid fast food now.

The bank is the only other drive-thru I'd use and since its so close to my house, I usually just walk or ride my bike there.

I'm sure with kids in the car, they make life much easier.

Waiting at the bank drive through yesterday, chatting up the teller, hear a big bang behind me. Idiot in a minivan with a crappy old mtb on the roof-top carrier totally ran the bike into the canopy. Seeing as it was an old dude, a minivan, and a crappy bike, I laughed my ass off.

Mini Vans also make crappy race cars. You should have challenged him to a race...

i see that too with DuDo. That's the only drive thru I use, generally pre 8am before a long road trip on the weekends. Need some juice and a sammich, then I'm ready to drive for 9billion hours.

The muchas gracias drive up is the only one I have used in a while. Anyone else have muchas gracias locally? I had never seen them before moving to Orygun...

That's a lot of driving.


Only drive-thru I ever use is the ATM........bank one of course. No idea what "drive-thru ATM" gets you in some other areas.
