Life has dramatically changed over the last year. The existence of many things is now gone and part of that is dining in at most restaurants. The change has brought about a new way of life and a new way to experience it. This week I learned that lots of people still want the things they wanted a few months ago and are willing to wait a long time for them. This was made prevalent on my trip to the dairy queen with my wife last night. We were under the impression that a trip to get some ice cream would make the end of our night perfect. So we hopped in the car after putting on some shoes and headed to the store.
Upon driving up to the DQ I noticed lots of lights near the store. It turned out that the light were indeed about 30 cars lined up in the drive through. It was strange because technically the inside of the store should have been open but it was not. This made us a bit sad because we knew we would be waiting for a long time. Since the inside was closed we imagined that the line would go very quickly. Unfortunately, it did not and was a very poor waiting process. There was one upside to being forced to wait a long time.
The upside is that we got to go through the entire menu on our phones for a long time and talk about the best items to get. Many were based around our favorite candy box candy. I mean is there much better than getting your favorite type of candy box in your ice cream? I am honestly not sure and I sure love a reese cup filled blizzard. My wife went for the oreo route after much debate and was a bit disappointed.
The big issue was that we waited a very long time and the order we received was shodilly put together and an extra topping was missing. It really showed a very poor lack of management. A store that was being staffed with so many people should have had that line flying and orders should be correct considering that you are only taking one order at a time and not the 4 to 5 when the store is running at normal capacity. Overall the experience was a bust and most likely we will not repeat that fiasco again.
