Working at a drive thru window can be not just a job but a study into the human psyche. Let's be honest when we roll up into a drive thru as a customer we're usually in the middle of some sort of life situation or we're drunk. So our behavior can be "out of the ordinary?"


And the poor workers have to be the witnesses to our lunacy. That particular job usually means long hours and overnight shifts. There is no aspect of humanity that you miss out on, and the things people keep in their cars never seizes to amaze.

Redditor permanantthr0waway wanted drive thru staff answer... Drive-thru window workers of reddit, what's the strangest thing you've seen in someones car? Pay attention before you leave the house people. Are your pants on? What's in your car? It's not that hard to take a quick peek.

Lars? Is that you?

Birds of a feather...

A rare Australian bird in a Chicago subdivision drive-thru. Apparently she worked at a zoo and there are only a couple of the birds left in the world.

Sharing is caring...

A big bag of weed in the passenger's seat. Like a sandwich bag stuffed to capacity. Try not to get pulled over on the way home, buddy.

A girl came through one time with her cat in the car. Like a typical cat in a car, it freaked out when she stopped at the window. When it tried to climb out, she rushed to put up the window and the cat's head got stuck. For a split second I thought she was gonna decapitate it :(, luckily she stopped, lowered the window and grabbed the cat. It was so close. I can still picture the look of horror on that cat's face. Hope she took better care of it.

Just a bag of bones...

Every year my uncle puts a fake skeleton in his passenger seat and drives in the HOV lanes when he drives to work. He lives like 2 hrs from where he works and leaves at 4am so there's no traffic. But it's pretty funny to think about.

I've seen it all...

I've seen a penis, a gun on a lap, dozens of folks smoking weed, but the best had to be the man on the mobility scooter.

He would come through on his mobility scooter and order, and he was mean. This lady in a van apparently got closer to his scooter than he thought she should have. He starters screaming at her. For whatever reason, she decides to get out of her van to discuss this with him. He took the flag from the back of his scooter and began hitting her with it!

Police were called, and he was arrested. His mobility scooter was impounded. I'll never forget watching it on the flatbed of a tow truck.

Have you heard of eating in moderation?

I work at a fried chicken place with a drive thru. I am constantly amazed at the number of people who have other bags of food that come through. Like folks who have Mcdonalds, a pizza and then order from me. What kinda sloppy feast are you having?

Just 10%?

Worked drive thru for a local burger joint didnt really know what i was doing but the crackhead girl who normally worked had called in.

Dude pulls up to get his greasy food and his wife is full on naked in the other side of the car.

The dude handed me a business card and told me I could have ten percent off because we where his favorite burger store and then they drove off like that awkward conversation never happened.

Went straight back to flipping burgers.

I'd rather apples personally...

One time I saw 15 watermelons shoved in front of the passenger seat of this guy's car.

What haven't you seen?

Parrot on shoulder, No pants on (quite a few times), Bong between legs, Severe car hoarders, Children roaming the car out of carseat, crazy arguments, A LOT of big braless boobs with seat belts adding very clear definition, people recording us on their phones. Standard stuff.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
