Carol Perkins: Drive-thru pitfalls

Previous Column: Bella and Honey

By Carol Perkins

A worker who took Guy's order at a drive-thru window as he specifically said: "no cheese on that burger" at least three times is labeled an idiot when Guy gets home with a cheeseburger. "I told that girl three times only meat and a bun. Meat and a bun. Three times. Here is what you get. A cheeseburger." We all know kids who do a good job, but he didn't meet any that day.

When Guy offers to bring me lunch but has to tell the person at the window he wants a "plain" anything, he takes it personally, as if I have somehow caused him severe embarrassment. "If you ate food like everyone else, this wouldn't happen."

Letter: Debbie thwarted travel plans

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Libby and I made our first and only trip to St. Augustine in June of 2012. Unfortunately, Tropical Storm Debbie decided to make her way there at the same time. Rained 17 inches in about three days. The Suwanee River reached record flood levels and at times on our way out of the area two days after Debbie's passing, the water was onto the edges of main highways and even Interstate 75 in places.

It was a miserable time to try to take in one of the most beautiful places I've seen. Historic St. Augustine, I hope to see you again someday and would rather not be accompanied by another Debbie or anything like her! --BJF
Billy Joe, we hope you make it back down. We've found St. Augustine to be a thoroughly charming city to visit. --Pen
