Hi Farm Friends,
Yesterday I had to drive to Lancaster to pick up more honey jars. On the way home I was dying of thirst, so I quickly pulled into a Wendy’s drive through for a drink. Ok, I got a burger too, please don’t tell Vicky. Anyway, I pulled up, gave my order to the talking sign and continued to the first window to pay. The small sliding glass window opened, a hand reached out for my credit card, I handed over the card, the hand with the card came back with no receipt. I waited for maybe 15 seconds and turned to ask about my receipt and the top portion of the human attached to the hand was sprawled and wedged between the computer screen and the window ASLEEP!!! “Hello” I said tentatively,” can I get a receipt?” Nothing…..Cars were lining up behind me. “Could I get my receipt!” Nothing….I may have heard a bit of a snore as I pulled away and headed to the second window to get my drink and burger (don’t tell Vicky) I said,”I think your girl back there has a problem.” The second window woman replied,”Yes I know, she’s a little slow.” I said,”she wasn’t slow until she fell asleep! “Oh no, not again.” she said. “Oh, by the way, can I get a receipt?”
