Weird Al isn't the only one "Trapped in the Drive-Thru."

Over one-third of adults in America consume fast food on any given day. So, it's safe to say drive-thru employees get their fair share of people-watching during their shifts.

So if you're a drive-thru worker who has witnessed something weird, shocking, or hilarious through the window, we want to hear your story!

Maybe a masked bandit would hide in the parking lot of your restaurant and run through the drive-thru window at the last second to steal orders made by other customers.

Or maybe you've seen celebrities passing through the drive-thru window on their way to work and have a first-hand story of how they really are in person.

Perhaps a social media trend like "cone-ing" was popular during your time working the window and customers constantly came by to order ice cream, but grabbed it from the top rather than the cone.

Or perhaps you overheard a couple having an explosive, breakup fight in their car over the drive-thru speaker and had to pretend like nothing out of the ordinary was happening when they pulled up to retrieve their food.
