      How to order at the drive-thru speaker

      2314 days ago
      I have worked in many different places that had drive thrus. And I have noticed, that no matter where I work, people are still stupid when it comes to how to place an order. So here is a few helpful hints:
      1. If you drive a diesal truck or otherwise loud vehicle, dont get pissed when the order taker can't hear you. Your exhaust is aimed right at the speaker and I have removed my headset many times when diesal trucks come thru because it hurt my ears.
      2. All places have a certain amount of time they have to get the cars order and get them out of drive thru. If you spend 5 minutes at the speaker, you have totally blown the goal and the person taking the order will most likely get something said to them by whoever is in…

      Meghan’s speech to school board

      2044 days ago
      My name is Meghan West and i am a 2010 graduate of Sullivan North High School. I would like to present to you another concern that the community has for the proposed rezoning option, asking in return that you, our elected board, allow more time on this matter. In the last several years, nearly every school in the bloomingdale community has been closed. Lynn view, gravely, cedar grove, Kingsley and Brookside. Ketron was changed to an intermediate school, then an elementary school. Sullivan north had 8th grade added, now it has 6, 7, and 8. I have many friends who have had to change schools several time because theirs kept getting closed. I myself was part of the first 8th grade class at sullivan north. The communities have all been thrown into chaos with the constant changes. Parents are taking…

      My name is Trina Smith. I am a mother of a 2010 graduate and a current junior at Sullivan North.

      Another fast food rant:20140525-154704-56824212.jpg -if you don't know what you want, stand back and let others order, instead of holding up the line. Decide before you get in line. Don't stand there yakking and wait to decide when you get to the register. -if you don't know what you want, come inside. Don't hold up the drive thru Lane trying to decide. It's called a drive thru. Not a drive, sit for ten minutes and then order. -if you order everything fresh, don't get pissy cause you have to wait on us to cook it. -don't complain to me about the price. I don't set them and have no control over them. -if your child can not behave and insists on running around the restaurant disturbing other guests, do everyone a favor. Keep them home or teach them how to behave in public. -if you drive a diesel using…
    • Toxic

      Toxic

      2062 days ago
      You20130225-005840.jpg don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It doesn't matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance — you don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and "continues" to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go. Saw this today and thought of how fitting it was.
