6: Wanna See My Stump?

As we’ve previously covered it can be fun to have your regulars come through the drive-thru window. Reddit user youwillruinyou details “On Christmas eve this guy comes through and I’m taking his money when he asks if I want to see his stump. I wasn’t thinking and said sure. The guy opens his car door and reveals that his left leg was amputated from the knee down. Again, without thinking I asked him if he was alright. He said he was, and while closing his door he mentioned that he needed to be careful when getting out because he has fallen on his face before.”

The drive-thru worker here totally thought that the person was referring to something else. With the sheer volume of people that come through a drive-thru daily, you are sure to see some strange occurrences. But, some people just enjoy the company of seeing another familiar face every day.

5: The Troubling First Day

First-day jitters are rough on anyone, let alone someone starting at the drive-thru window. Reddit user rah-kooc details having to train a newbie on an awkward day “Used to work at McDonald’s back in the day. I was training a new girl and told her to hand the man at the window his drink. The window opens, and I notice the adult man driving is wearing a bib…weird, but to each their own. As the new girl reaches out her hand to pass the man his drink, he just starts vomiting on himself, violently so…there was splatter.

“The new girl stood there in shock, so I grabbed her and pulled her back. The window automatically closed and the man eventually drove away. Another weird instance is when I was handing a man a small chocolate shake, I kid you not a small monkey wearing a diaper hopped up on the man’s seat and reached out and took the shake from me. The worst part is, none of my coworkers believed me because I was the only one who saw the monkey.”

4: R-Rated Lunch

We’re all guilty of watching strange things on our phones while we wait in line, but Reddit user yellowflower_ had a specially strange one. “My friend works as a cashier at a Mcdonald’s. While waiting for his food, this one client was watching something on his phone and my friend absentmindedly stared at the phone without actually paying attention. The dude turns and makes eye contact with her and gets super embarrassed and my friend realizes he was watching porn the whole time. She awkwardly handed him his food after.”

To each their own, but needless to say this, was a strange encounter. It’s not something that you would think about watching in line at the hamburger joint. But, then again you never know the strange things that people have on their minds.

3: Interesting Taco Bell Fan

Fast food has been an integral part of most of our lives for a long time, and Taco Bell is an iconic brand with a lot of history. Reddit user ForksnFrenchfries had a strange experience while working at a Taco Bell drive-thru “Their ass tattoo. I was working the late-night shift at a taco bell drive-thru when I was 16. This dude came in with a car full of his buddies, all high. While waiting for his food he starts chatting me up about how much he LOVES taco bell. “No like, you don’t understand, it’s my favorite thing ever.

“‘I love you guys! I even have a tattoo!’ He proceeded to unbuckle and shift in his seat so that he could stick his ass out his open window. And just dropped trow. Right there on his right cheek, in full color, was the taco bell symbol and catchphrase: “think outside the bun”. I was too stunned to say anything. Never forgot it.”

2: A Van Full of Nuns

The drive-thru is such a bustling font of activity that there is something new to see every day. The84thWolf details his time at the tender age of 17 working the drive-thru “I was 17 in high school, was a shift supervisor and it was a Sunday with 3 people called out so we were slammed. I was cleaning trays, washing dishes, and taking orders in the back at the same time nonstop for three hours. My manager comes back and says he needs me to push a van that had broken down AT the window. “What MF takes such shitty care of their van!?

“I start walking to the front door and look out the drive-through window. There is a young lady in full habit attire with 5 other very elderly women, also in full habit attire. I had NEVER seen a nun in person before or since. They look at me and smile. “Sorry about this!” (Without missing a beat) ‘No problem ladies, we’ll take care of it.’ So I and one other guy push it out of the way and helped the tow truck guy when he came. The nuns thanked us, blessed us, and ride off. I look at my coworker. “Did you swear when you heard their car broke down?” “Yup.” “Me too. We’re going to hell.” “YUP.”

1: The Baby Goat

We’ve heard tales of people bringing farm animals on a ride, so naturally, this story fits the bill. “A baby goat. Curled up on the passenger’s side in the front seat. The woman’s friend was giving away one and she knew if she asked her husband to take his truck to pick it up he’d have refused. She was confident he’d give in once he saw the little guy, who was outrageously cute. Just not if he had to go and get it and think it over since according to her “He’s tired of me bringing animals home.”

Obviously what we have here is a wife that might have brought one too many stray animals home. Nevertheless, it doesn’t hurt when you have a baby goat around. Still, this isn’t exactly a dog or a cat, and can you imagine the smell in the car? What a goat of a story.
