You work in fast food, or any restaurant that has take out, and someone orders a lot of food but only one drink? Do you think it's all for them? Do you judge more if it's an overweight person?

When I was busy working at restaurants, I never took the time to think about people's to go orders. I just wanted them out of the window so I could get my customers served.

People don't usually get drinks with their takeout where I work. That said, I've seen some BIIGGG boys n girls chow down on ridiculous amounts of food...and some really sexy, muscular guys do the same ;)

I judge...cringe first, then judge lol

Typically when SO and I go out we'll order food for the both of us and only one drink for him. I always always always have a water bottle on me and I like to save money by bringing my own. Or if we are taking it home we'll both have drinks at home.

I don't think anything. Fast food isn't filling, if I wanted to get full on mcdonalds I'd need like four cheeseburgers. Which is why it's awful for you lol.

This. When I was a manager at McDonald's, I couldn't care less who got how much.

I'm thinking back to how many times I had to check to make sure everything was in the order. Who has time to judge?

I wouldn't think anything. I order a lot of food for my family then order just myself a drink because I'm thirsty. They can drink what I have at home.

I know I personally order food for everyone, get a drink for my boys to share and I drink water at home. So I order food for 4 or 5 and one drink. So I would think nothing.

no, I don't really pay that much attention to what other people order (I don't work fast food, but had in the past). I'll order a bunch of food and bring it home for my husband and son, but usually just one drink because we have drinks at home. Sometimes I don't order any drink at all, but if I'm thirsty at the time I will.

That happened to my sister. Lol. Our mom was in the hospital and we went to Del Taco and ordered a bunch of food, everyone had drinks at the hospital but me since I showed up late after work. She ordered all this food and then asked for a large diet coke. When she pulled up to the window I hid and they just gave her the weirdest look. Lol. 6 bags of food and a diet coke later, we had a good laugh. There was about 10 of us at the time because my mom was really ill so we all basically lived at the hospital.
