Imagine you’re single, childless, and antisocial – like I was for many many years. What better way to celebrate a lonely Christmas night than sitting for hours in a McDonald’s drive-thru lane?
A McDonald’s which is closed for Christmas.
This is a video of at least nine cars lined up in the drive-thru of a McDonald’s on Christmas night while the store is closed. I feel like this is an experiment in human psychology. I have so many questions. How long has that first car been there?
Do they know the store is closed and are just hoping for a Big Mac Christmas miracle? Why is nobody using the second drive-thru lane? Is this really just a very complicated pass-the-button style drug deal? Are all these people so high they just assume time is barely passing? Why didn’t McDonald’s turn the drive-thru lights off so people knew it was closed? *pounding fist on table* WHY IS THE McFLURRY MACHINE ALWAYS BROKEN? *sobbing* When is the McRib coming back?!
It’s like the old man shoveling salt in Home Alone. You feel bad for him, but the you realize, “Pfft, he made his choice.”
Oh, and dollars to doughnuts this occurred in Philadelphia… or there are Philadelphians in that line.
