Do you have a fear of the drive thru window?

My fiance goes inside to order food because he has a Spanish accent and he gets embarrassed if the drive thru person doesn't understand him. That's understandable. But *I* have an irrational fear of taking too long or messing up my words! I would rather go inside and talk to a person face to face.

I'm weird I guess. I also hate talking on the phone, and I go inside at the bank.

  • I'm only scared to use my bank card at the drive thru so I always go in unless I have cash! I'm scared someone is going to write my info down or something!

  • the only drive thru I hate to go to is the one at the oriental restuarant. Great food. Good prices. Nice ppl but they can't understand English and they mess up the order every time I go through the drive thru

  • I'm not afraid of going through it, but I'm terrified of running it. I work at a Taco Bell and I literally have panic attacks if they try to get me to work drive through.

  • I think I have the opposite fear! I will sit in a long line in the drive thru to avoid going inside. Oh, but that might be because I haven't combed my hair too.

  • No, but then I never use drive thrus. I do not like eating in the car, and if am ordering take out, I would sooner go in so I know I am getting exactly what I ordered.
