Drive Thru Speakers Suck

I hope some people out there who use drive thrus can find this tip useful: Line your freaking car window up with the speaker! I don't know how many times I have tried to take someone's order and I can barely hear them.... so I crank my headset's volume to max and ask them nicely repeat their order, trying not to make them annoyed. I still can't hear a damned thing! Then I look out the window at your dumb ass trying to give me your order at the window, your front bumper lined up with the speaker and your head stretched out your window so far I'm surprised you don't just get out of your vehicle! Then you have the nerve to get pissy with me at the speaker, huffing and puffing, and then at the window saying I'm not "paying attention" to you.

How hard is it to line your window up to the speaker and talk directly to it? Does your neck hurt when you crane it out your window that far? Come on, most speakers aren't that sensitive and can't pick up a voice unless it's lined up. I just hate it when people get mad at me for things I can't control!

---I'm sorry, could you please repeat that?
