I went through the drive through at [fast food restaurant] with my three children. It was a few minutes after 11 o’clock and the lunch menu was visible, so I ordered lunch.

Me: “I’d like the number 2, no pickles and …”

Fast Food Lady: “I’m sorry. We’re serving from our breakfast menu right now.”

M: “But it’s 11 o’clock?”

FFL: “That’s right, we start at 11 o’clock.”

M: “But it’s 11 o’clock right now!”

FFL: “We’re still serving breakfast. We will not serve lunch until 11 o’clock.”

(Note, by this point it’s almost 11:05.)

M: “It’s after 11 o’clock already.”

FFL: “Let me go check.”

(3 minutes later, there is now a long line behind me.)

M: “Hello?”

FFL: “Yes, can I take your order?”

M: “Breakfast or lunch?”

FFL: “Breakfast, we don’t serve lunch until 11.”

I gave up and ordered breakfast, which was served to me at 11:10. Thankfully, the kids were happy with pancakes.
