McDonald's posted its slowest-ever drive-thru time in the 15-year history of the drive-thru study — requiring an average 189.5 seconds for the typical drive-thru customer to go from order to pickup. That's roughly nine seconds longer than the industry average, reports the study conducted this summer by Insula Research.

Gonna put a sell order on my Mickey D's stock

Just a hint Mac. Hire people who can speak English!!!

LoudMouth: I went to visit Jack in the Box yesterday, and the guy at the counter asked me if I'd like to try something called a "yumbo yak".

I didn't know that Mr. Box served yak. It must be on their "After 11 am" menu.

Yumbo Yak opened for Meatloaf before he had his last Big Yac Attack.

Two minutes longer than it takes Joe Biden to fall asleep in cabinet meetings.

Unfortunately, the maximum length of time the average McDonald's customer can wait for a Big Mac meal before having a complete mental breakdown is 188.7 seconds.

And you still get limp fries!

It takes a lot longer to make sure you hand the wrong order to the customer. I say that as the parent of a McD order taker.
