The Takeout Window of Wendy's

Post by munsi » Thu Feb 25, 2010 10:51 pm

The takeout speaker at Wendy’s keeps urging me to kill.

It asks if I want to upgrade my fries and drink, and tells me everyone I know plots secretively against me.

It tells me my total is $6.79, and reminds me that I, the Angel of Death, have a duty to rain vengeance down upon the heads of the infidels.

It tells me to pull up to the pickup window for my meal, then go home and butcher my family before eating it.

I worry I’m going mad.

And wonder how boring working the takeout window of Wendy’s must be.

To Go

The girl adjusted her hat and flashed her braces. “And for you, sir?”

“Happiness,” said the man with hollow circles under his eyes. “A new purpose.”

“One double-cheeseburger and a side of onion rings,” said the girl. “Here you go, sir!”

The man took his paper bag away, his face brightening perceptibly.

“Next?”

The next customer dabbed at her eyes. “I want peace. I want to remember only the good times.”

“Small chocolate shake. Three dollars, ma’am.”

Jeremy stepped up to the counter as the woman departed, her worry lines fading away. “I, uh, just wanted a Coke,” he said.

We need a ROFL emoticon, stat.

I can see myself torn between ordering the Dr. Pepper and taking a chance with the unintended consequences that might arise from asking for "an end to stress and to never be lonely again." Of course, if I asked for that, I'd also ask for the Dr. Pepper. Just because Dr. Pepper is available at normal restaurants doesn't mean it's less than miraculous. :lol:

Face it, over the damn speaker they could be saying either one and you couldn't tell.
But this one thing I know: I'm never going to have peace about paying $3 for a small chocolate shake.

More a reminder drabble; "To Go" is from sometime in April of last year on Mirrorshards, but I was reminded of it by your story. It took me nearly as long to find the thing as it did to write it in the first place; moving to a "real" URL has totally borked Blogspot's search engine, apparently.
