Fast food workers encounter customers from a variety of backgrounds and situations that make each transaction unique.


But those who are positioned at a drive-thru window experience interactions that are even more oddly exclusive.

Tellers see customers inside their own environment, and therefore, get a peek into their personal lives.

To hear interesting anecdotes, Redditor Reach-n-Teach asked strangers:

"People who have worked the drive thru, what's the weirdest thing you've seen in someone's car?"
Some Redditors mentioned witnessing (or hearing) NSFW scenarios, seeing a mammal – and in one case – was attacked by something slimy.

One thing is certain. You can't make this stuff up.

Please proceed to the next window and be prepared to guffaw.

Drunk Gym Teacher

"My gym teacher, drunk. He started eating the tacos at the drive through window. He was there for over 5 minutes, just eating. I saw him the next day in school, we both acted like nothing happened."

The Inflated Passenger

"Dude had a full on sex doll dressed up in his passenger seat. Sunglasses, dress and even a hat. I couldn't even tell it was fake until I asked for their order. Coworker and I looked at each other simultaneously and we both said 'was that a sex doll?' This is in a 'wealthy' area of my city as well so it was definitely a first."

Not Gay

"Two guys naked on a bench seat. Driver made sure to tell me they weren't gay."

Hungry Pet

"Only worked drive-through for a year but the weirdest thing I saw was an alpaca in a minivan. They asked at the window if they could order some apple slices for the alpaca. I just gave them two packs on the house."

"Private Peters"

"Had a guy consistently come through the drive thru with his pecker out. He would always order the same thing, large mellow yellow no ice, always on a sunday, and always wearing military fatigues. Then he stopped showing up for a bit, we called him private peters, as our little sign to call the cops if he showed up again. A month later we get an order for a large mellow yellow no ice, so I decide to take over the window. We convinced the car in front of him to stay in the lane and we called the cops, he got suspicious and left but they caught him and was charged."

Comfortable In Their Own Naked Skin

"I had 4 women that came through a few times. I'm 16. They're all like 45+. Not made up. Just naked and completely casual. Never acted like they were even slightly concerned they were naked at all. One of the girls there said they came through about once a week. We didn't have a nudist colony nearby that I knew of. Just these same ladies."

He Had Time

"Had a customer come through with a giant grandfather clock in the back seat. The thing was so huge it was sticking out the side window, which just so happened to be on the left side of the car. Which meant dude couldn't get close enough to the window to reach his food and had to step out, cursing the whole time."

Flying Fish

"Someone threw a fish at me once. Didn't order anything, just a drive by fish attack."

What's In The Egg Cartons?

"I worked at a Tim Hortons and once saw an old lady with like 50 cartons of eggs in her car, I made a joke saying 'looks like you could make your own breakfast' and she got real straight faced and said 'oh honey those aren't eggs.' Still have zero clue what else you would store in egg cartons..."

So That's What Was In Those Egg Cartons

"Golf balls. I used to steal gold balls from a golf course water hazard and the woods around the course. Sold them in egg cartons for $5"

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
