Working the drive-thru isn't as simple as you might believe. For one: Customer service can be grueling. Secondly: Customers are wild, man, which only supports our previous point.

Redditor MoistMania got the ball rolling after they asked the online community: "Drive thru workers of Reddit, what's the weirdest thing you've seen in someone's car?"


"A lizard..."

A lizard chilling on someone's dashboard being fed veggies. A cat was also in the same car.

"When I worked..."

When I worked at Dunkin' Donuts this guy came through the drive thru with a huge falcon in his passenger seat.

"A baby kangaroo."

A baby kangaroo. To clarify, I live in New England and this is not normal. To be honest I was just out of view of it, but it caused quite a clamor.

"Some guy..."

Working drive through at Starbucks...

Some guy pulled through with car filled with boxes. He said they were filled with flashlights and offered me some. I completely forgot about it till I got off work. When I got out to my car there were 5 boxes each filled with 20 brand new Duracell flashlights still in the packaging. Had to be worth at least $500. And he had many more boxes.

"A tortoise..."

A tortoise that took up the whole passenger seat.

"A woman came through..."

A woman came through with no passenger side seat. It had been pulled out, and in its place hung a giant metal ring with an enormous Cockatoo sitting on it. Thing was going mental when she pulled up.

"My mother..."

My mother used to work the drive thru at Burger King when she was a teenager. She told me that a man used to come through some nights completely naked except for black see-through stockings.

"I was staring at her..."

Back when I worked drive through at a McDonald's I had this guy ordering who, number one, took like five minutes to order a breakfast burrito and a drink so I was pretty fed up already when he got to the window. When this car pulled up, I was really not expecting to see a chick wearing nothing but a bra and panties in the backseat.

I was staring at her while I took the guy's cash and she glanced up and noticed me and ducked down a little bit. Like, babe, you're in a pretty short car; if I can see the floor from here I can definitely see you.

Guy just drove off to the next window like nothing happened.

Also served a lady on a horse one time and was subsequently told they had to be in a motor vehicle to come through the drive through, but that wasn't as strange since there are horses in our area.

"I once saw a woman..."

I once saw a woman roll up to the Window and she must have been a dominatrix as she had a man in the back in a leather outfit and a rubber pig mask. I can only imagine that was his kink to get embarrassed at a KFC drive through.

"We cleaned it off."

I work at a drive through car wash, woman came through with a bucket of KFC mashed potatoes stuck to her window. We cleaned it off.

How many people do you know battling addictions?

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), addiction is "a treatable, chronic medical disease involving complex interactions among brain circuits, genetics, the environment, and an individual's life experiences. People with addiction use substances or engage in behaviors that become compulsive and often continue despite harmful consequences."

Hearing from those who have battled addictions––and come out the other side––can be remarkably eye-opening, as we were reminded once Redditor YoshBotArmy asked the online community,

"People who have beaten an addiction... what's your secret?"

I'm just spitballing here, but it seems to me that pretty much that weapons of war are among humanity's worst creations. Sure: We live in an anarchic world. States can never be certain of another state's intentions. Conflicts are bound to break out. But in a perfect world––and a man can dream––none of this would be necessary.

It seems I'm not alone in this, either. People had opinions of their own after Redditor Questwarrior asked the online community,

"What was the worst human invention ever made?"

Homelessness is an unfortunate and all-too-common occurrence in the world, particularly in the United States. Homelessness has grown to a huge degree, and while most countries have the resources to help their homeless, many choose not to.

It's amazing what the legalities are from place to place. I live in New England, and in Connecticut, passengers are allowed to drink alcohol in the car, as long as they aren't driving. Weed isn't legal there, but open containers in the car? Totally fine. At least we have something to look forward to as we cross the border.
