order food from places and then sit in their car to eat?

Is it because they are embarrassed to sit at a table alone?

Because you don't want to deal with getting in and out if the weather is bad.

Because you need some quiet time alone.

Because your car is probably cleaner than a fast food table.

Because you are in a hurry and it saves some time.

I would much rather sit in my car any day than sit inside.  Embarrassment never even enters the picture.  There are lots of different reasons.

If I'm running errands and starving, I get food from a drive-thru and eat in my car.  I guess I would feel a little uncomfortable eating at a table alone, which I know is ridiculous.  But when I'm alone in my car I can eat like a pig and no one sees me!

I have very high anxiety, and one of my triggers is eating in crowds or large groups of people. Usually, if the parking lot is full we'll just go somewhere else. Sometimes, we just don't have time to go somewhere else.

Sometimes I like to be alone.   
Some people suffer social anxiety too.

When I've done it its because I don't want to get out of the car and go inside, I guess I'm just lazy I dunno but I also hate driving and eating so if I'm not in a huge hurry I'll park and eat. So yeah, its usually just cuz I dont' wanna get out of teh car, but I gotta admit sitting at a table alone feels awkward lol.

We only do that when we are on road trips, or about to hit the road.  LOL.
