I drive where ever I’m going and eat there. I don’t eat while I drive. So I rarely use the drive-through window. Like half a dozen times ever, and I’m in my thirties. I tried it once when I’d just started driving, and I didn’t like it - didn’t feel I could pay adequate attention to the road and wound up setting my food aside until I reached my destination. Other drive through times since have been either getting a milkshake or picking up something shortly before I reach home.
White Castle, Taco Bell (after a brief park to apply hot sauce), eat in my car as I’m driving away. McDonald’s breakfast, bring it home and enjoy. I think these 3 examples sum up 99% of my drive thru habits.
I usually only go through the drive through if I’m taking my meal home, or eating while I’m traveling. If I’m going to eat it at the restaurant, I’d just go inside. (Seriously, go through the drive-through, then go to eat in side? Who the fuck does this?)
And eating in the driveway at my house just sounds dumb. I might eat it on my porch if it’s nice out, but eat it in the car parked at my house? Why the fuck would I do that?
I don’t eat much drive-thru fast food but, when I do, it is most commonly because I am far away from home and want something quick to eat right then. I usually drive somewhere close like a rest stop or park and eat it outside of the car. I don’t usually eat it in the car unless the weather is bad and I don’t like to eat while driving (although I have done it when necessary). I almost never get fast food to bring home. I can cook better food there.
