Please Learn to use a Drive – Thru
Dear Southside Edmontonians,
It is not every day that I stop on my way to work to grab a tasty, morning-making Tim Hortons coffee – But when I do, I stop at the location in South Edmonton Common. (Near Superstore, not the Wendys/Tims near Ikea)
Today, like so many days before it, I found myself impeding traffic because some asshat in front of me doesn’t understand the concept of traffic.
If you are turning into the drive thru, and the line is backed up to the entrance/exit of the parking lot – DO NOT SIMPLY STOP IN THE ENTRANCE/EXIT AND SIT THERE LIKE A TOOL. The person behind you, who was myself today, cannot turn into the parking lot AT ALL and is stuck either sitting in the middle of the road holding up traffic, or forced to pass the entrance and loop around an incredibly busy and annoying shopping area to get in the other side.
You should be pulling in, and forming a line inside of the parking lot without blocking the entrance/exit to the area. I would think this was common sense, but apparently I, an 18 year old highschool dropout millennial who works in a crappy clothing for minimum wage, needs to educate you. That’s kind of sad IMO.
Just in case this made no sense, or some of you need further explanation, I have attached a lovely hand drawn picture for you to study.
Thanks a bunch – and to the middle aged white lady in the red SUV this morning : You could have at least bought my coffee after driving like such an asshat…… Just saying!
