Failing to remember to bring leftovers for lunch, I ventured out in search of my favorite food — fried chicken. I have two very popular and nationally known fast food restaurants I frequent to fill my craving. Recently, the experiences I had at each restaurant were vastly different. Such a night and day difference in fact, that it led me to ponder upon why that was the case.
My first visit was to — let’s call it Chicken House 1. Chicken House 1 typically has excellent food (ok, maybe not healthy food, but really tasty food). As I enter their parking lot, I immediately notice there are a good number of cars in the drive-thru line already ahead of me– probably 5 or so. I debated on leaving and going to some other restaurant but decided against it as I was already there and was close to the office. Big mistake! Immediately after filing into the drive-thru line, several other cars pull in behind me. I am now completely stuck in line and can’t back out of my error. We sat, and sat, and sat for at least 20 minutes, with no progress in sight.
