No matter how much you use the drive-thru, you probably don't know all the useful drive-thru life hacks, how you're being tricked, or what it's like to work at those windows. But never fear folks, we're here to illuminate the best hush-hush drive-thru secrets that are out there.
As you pull up to the drive-thru in your pajamas or while picking your nose, you may feel like you're invisible. Unfortunately, this most likely isn't the case. In fact, there's probably a CCTV camera focused in on your hungover face.
A Starbucks employee named Brittney revealed this fact in a viral TikTok she made. In this video, Brittney films two drive-thru customers while hilariously singing the words, "Thank you for pulling into Starbucks." When she starts to sing, you can see her patrons' surprise, and after she finishes her operatic moment, she asks for their order, and everyone has a cheeky giggle.
While this TikTok is hilarious, a lot of people online were surprised to discover that they were actually being watched as they ordered their fast food. One person named Lindsey commented,

Meanwhile, another commenter wrote,
"I'm now SO embarrassed for all the times I made silly faces at the ordering screen."
And as you scroll through the rest of replies, it becomes incredibly apparent that a lot of people didn't know that they could be seen at the drive-thru. So, the next time you're getting your drive-thru tacos, make sure your PJs are on fleek.

  • Besides issues with menu items. Businesses keep lowering their labor budget within stores. Pulling cars ahead also has to do with drive thru goals most places once you pull up to the window they have 60 seconds to get you in & out. Yeah. Drive thru times are lengthy now compared to yrs ago.

    • Yes, large complicated special orders at the drive thru are the worst. But I've also noticed that the person in front of me in the drive thru is often there waiting for an eternity then you see their stupid effing parfait dessert thing handed to them, often enough to see a pattern.

  • As someone who works for a chain as a Drive Through cashier/order-taker, I will 100% get behind 3:03 and it's big message at 4:07-4:09. Know what you want before you pull in, or if you're a first time customer, let us know so we can appeal to you what we have. I won't speak of whom I am employed by, but it's no joke. You sit there, taking two minutes to order, where we at the Drive-Through have three and a half to get you out of our window; preferably, yes, with your food.

  • it's coming. the people persisted and eventually congress got involved and we sued the tobacco companies and drove them back for years of putting out a heavily marketed dangerous product with tremendous associated health costs and the day will come when the fast food industry will have to be more accountable for the heavily marketed unhealthy and addictive products they sell primarily to kids and overworked families... they are on every corner selling uber delicious high fat high sodium high cholesterol high calorie foods with TREMENDOUS LONG TERM HEALTH costs. Maybe not right away but hopefully people will organize and force them to provide a total overhaul of the menu with ONLY healthy products.

    • @Fallon Cho I'm sorry you had a bad experience, that's more of a personal level of butt-headery than the store's fault itself. Where I work, we wear headsets and a ding goes off when your car hits our pressure plate at the speaker, so we know when to immediately acknowledge you.
