It must be a thing for that location/franchisee, as I don't get that at any of my local ones over the years.  

I'd get breakfast at the one by my place more often if it didn't involve going through a school zone twice before heading to work.  Their loss is Sonic's gain.

I might be misreading it, but the flow seemed to imply to me that it was the church members were asking what he was doing on said day.  I could be wrong, and it's the employees.  It's constructed in a manner to be unclear at best.

Letting church members use the space for proselytizing customers sure seems like a religious topic.

As for the overly friendliness and getting the entry person moving down the line is strictly in the customer service realm.

Turn on your status bar.  When I was having HDD issues, it would hang on Waiting for cache...  I've also seen the AdBlockPro hang things up early in a session.

Status bar?  What status bar?

If you hover over a link and can see a preview of the address at the bottom of your browser, it's already on.  

If you use IE (poor bastard), go under View | Toolbars | Status Bar

If you use Chrome and can't see it, try this.

Red Robin uses Yum! as their catch phrase.  If you want a burger place where you can throw peanut shells on the floor, go to Five Guys. 

Personally, I prefer Texas Roadhouse to get my peanut littering done.

Too bad they have that Anomalous Materials test next month.

I'm working for a credit union in the DFW area as a programmer, moving on from working as a programmer working on lending and Sales & Service software used by the Big Banks.  I've been a big boy programmer for 6.5 years now.

Rather than roll back my Shadowrun game, last night I fired up XCOM for the first time since I played the demo way back when.  Similar combat, different story, deeper game mechanics.

Tried to hit Wendy's at lunch rush, but the lines were substantial.  I walked across the lot to Church's, which had no line, and no cars in the drive through.  So a 4-piece chicken strip meal was had and consumed.

Thought cross your mind as to why there may not have been a line...  paranoid

It did.  But I like a little danger in my life.  But only a little.

No, it just makes you unempathetic and self absorbed.  God forbid anyone that doesn't belong to your group get recognition or acceptance, especially when they've been legally and socially ostracized for centuries.

Maybe.

So how long do you plan on playing the victim card in life?

Fuck off.
