Guy in the drive-thru

My 3 out of 4 of my sister in laws have all worked at Chick-fil-a, so tonight I asked them if anything creepy had ever happened, I gave a few examples and they all agreed they had creepy people all the time, but then one lit up and said “What about the guy in the drive thru?”

The other two looked a little shifty but then the oldest agreed and nodded. At their stores here they have 2 people that stand outside walking along the line taking orders and payments because the lines get so long and it helps move the cars quicker than just having one people taking the orders at the sign and taking payment at the window.

They were walking back along the line of cars, most people have their window down and ready, but as they approached this one car the window was still up. It was dark and they leaned forward to look in the window. The driver was slumped over the steering wheel, they waited for a minute hoping he’d notice them.

As the cars ahead started to move they decided to lightly knock on the window.

The driver still didn’t move, they were just highschool kids so they used their headset to tell the manager inside what was going on, unsure what to do themselves.

He came out and knocked a little louder on the window. When the driver still showed no responsive sign they called 911. The cops arrived and banded loudly on the window, still without response they decided he might be in danger and quickly popped the door open about the time EMTs were arriving.

The strong smell of alcohol hit everyone outside as the door opened and the man almost slid out of the seat into the drive through, he wasn’t breathing. They could not resuscitate him. And that’s how a guy died in the drive thru of the Chick-fil-a.

Fast Food Isn’t Fun Food

This story happened on my little brother’s birthday. My mother was going through a rough patch of a divorce, so we had to rely on fast food a lot. We were actually going after his party, to Chick Fil A whenever this happened, and we had just got in when it got creepy.

The first major creepy thing that happened, was this man coming up behind my mom and I. We thought at first that he would just get in line, so my mom and I kept looking forward.

Then the man began to speak to us, nothing really creepy at first, just a casual hello.

The thing that came next was rather shocking. Now before I continue, I must mention the age I was at the time. I was around nine years old, and my younger brother was six years old. We have that weird age gap thing, at times I’m three years older than him, and at other times I’m only two years older. Back to the story.

He had already begun to draw closer to my mom and me and had become more touchy.

He has his hand on my mom’s shoulder and he acted like he knew my mom and me. People began to notice, and my Aunt who was in the play part with my brother was staring. He even began to compliment me on how pretty I was, and I knew something was up.

We had gotten our food shortly later, getting my Aunt and my brother, and going to a seat in the restaurant, away from the creepy guy. Later we heard some commotion and noises outside, and we naturally, being people, looked out the window.

We saw the man who was detained, in handcuffs. We noisily, as we went out, went slowly so we could hear what was going on. Apparently, he was on parole for a kidnapping and had a parole violation, by interacting with his victim. (Violation of a restraining order I guess).

I don’t know if this man was just being kind, or if he had planned more with my mom and I. I can’t say I hate Chick Fil A now, I can eat me some chicken nuggets all day, but I am now more aware.
