Who was the moron who built the drive through at Sonic in Columbia? If the workers are going to walk the food out to your car why even have a drive through? Why not just park in one of the car ports instead... isn't it the same damn thing? The whole thing just seems kind of pointless.

Would never tip at fast food joint. If that's the case,give an extra dollar for the cashier at McDonalds.

But the Sonic kids don't make minimum wage like the other fast food joints. They are paid slightly above a servers wage and expected to earn tips to make up the difference.

i mentioned this in another thread, but if somebody earns a server's wage and tips are not compensating to get to minimum wage the business has to compensate them. they have to create a business model that encourages tipping. i don't think they do. if your kid is not bringing home at least min wage then they should not work there. i will not be guilted by a low wage into tipping when it's the business' poor design that is giving their employees more work. they can pay the min wage.

Exactly. Another place that has weird format is Hometown Buffet. The workers come sign your receipt but don't do anything for you and then expect a tip. For what?

You ever pull up there at night, and you hear over the intercom,"Welcome to Sonic, I'am Bill Clinton and this is Hillary Clinton, can I take your order?" Very strange characters working there at night.
