Have you ever noticed how when you drive through McDonald's there are often 3 voices taking your order, usually a mix of male and female? One asks if you want to try a special, the other tells you they are ready for your order and then another actually takes your order?
Well I have taken note of this and decided to figure out what the business strategy was. Am I supposed to feel more taken care of as a customer if it seems as though an entourage of McDonald's employees are serving me? So I pulled up to pay for my giant diet coke today and asked the woman,
"Why....are there so many voices?"
And the look of fear and concern she gave me made me burst into hiccupy, wheezy laughter as I realized how that must have sounded. And I couldn't elaborate, I had to just drive away.
