I thought I'd surprise the girlfriend at her work today, with a banana split from the DQ for her lunch. I live in Hope so I knew already that this DQ has the slowest drive through window in the industry, but I was willing to use it.
Long after the ordering when the worker finally began making the banana split, I could see some of the prep area through the window and I was quite unimpressed to see him jabbing and manipulating the banana pieces with his bare fingers as he applied the ice cream. He took the thing to the further recesses of the facility to complete it and when he returned and produced the open confection at the window it was filled above the tray's rim with the various substances, and a gob of whipped cream promptly flopped off the far side of it and onto my lap. I asked the guy for a tray of some kind to put this thing on, as I obviously could not drive away while simultaneously trying to control this ridiculous pile of slop. He took his creation away again for several minutes, and returned with the same tray of gumption but now it sported a snap-on fitted lid (why wasn't this on it in the first place?)
But the entire banana split was now mashed under this lid and it looked as through it had spent time in a paint shaker.
Fresh out of time to get the G/F any lunch by this time, I took the thing and drove away, after telling the slack faced idiot what I thought of his unsanitary food preparing behavior.
But I won't be back.
