I picked up Good Burger on dvd awhile back. But I would love someone attempt to order a Giant Ass Hamburger and get told to ask Mondo Burger across the street. Yes, Mondo does deliver, even to the top of your car.

Surely its not Good Burger or Mondo Burger by chance?

In Gotham, there's a scene where 2 girls chase after a guy demanding he buy their cookies, this is due to a chemical being released in the air.

I seem to recall a bank having a drive up window, which later was blocked off by a yogurt place. When pizza hut took over the location, they reopened the drive up window. The bank moved, while the yogurt place went out of business. The building has a grocery store right across the street.

They told me that a couple people bought a whole bunch of the Fallout minis. They let me open the Assassin's Creed mini in the store...after I paid for it first. Gamestop preorders sometimes contain bonus dlcs, along with giving you a gamestop exclusive preoder bonus item. AC Origins had a Bayek figpin. AC Odyssey had a helmet keychain.

There was no way I was gonna take Rarity, as she was already being rarity. This was a bin under a shelf or 2 that had a bunch of toys in them. I extremely had the 'guess the product until you open it' offer. I bought an Assassin's Creed mini bag, and it randomly gave me the rare one, on first try. A Gamestop employee was a bit pissed that she didn't get the rare one, but I kept it anyway. She had the other minis, though.

Honestly, I was hoping Rainbow Dash was included, as it showed her image on the drive thru menu. But ended up with Apple Jack instead. I bought a few mlp toys from walmart, these where the ones in small invidual packing for cheap. My sister took the Rainbow Dash I had, but still have the others somewhere. McD did have Hello Kitty for a time, so I got one of her sledding. I still have a Rock-A-Doodle toy from Dairy Queen, still sealed. The extra I had, of the same toy, was opened up. And yes, Burger King had 3 xbox/xbox 360 games featuring their King mascot. Games were: Big Bumpin', Pocketbike Racer & Sneak King. Found all 3 at a pawn shop for like $2 each some time ago. The games can be played on either original xbox or xbox 360.

Most would rather go thru the drivethru, than actually go inside to get it to go (I tend to go this route, since it gets me out of the vehicle for a bit), as they're afraid of this happening if they went inside: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC3XtLH1Kvo

In Wayne's World movie, Stan Mikita drive thru had a sign stating that if we get your order wrong, you don't have to pay. Wayne & Garth attempt to fuck up their order, but it backfired in the end. Leo Getz' "They fuck you at the drive thru..." from Lethal Weapon 2 comes to mind. Last night, my sister wanted chicken nuggets, but the drivethru menu is a bitch to read, so she ended up getting a 6pc nugget kids meal. Yes, she is an adult, but who cares? She did had to specify that the toy was for girl, although they would be happy to toss in a boy toy instead. And there are those who collect those toys to try get every one of them, like I did for Bonkers years ago. I had to laugh when a fastfood place had a few video games featuring their mascot for sale, via promo. One guy did manage to get all 3 games in one go. Years later, I found those same 3 games at a pawn shop. I could see why they sucked badly.

I had a few tapes wear out, due to them being rental tapes. But they didn't break the tape at all, just the quality was bad. I did have one tape break, but didn't go apeshit when I bought it back in. They respliced the tape so it worked properly, eventually I owned that exact same tape. That plastic tape cover can break off, but the tape can still play. VCRs can be picky when it comes to tapes. It might either play it, or eat it for breakfast (which happened a few times, easily fixed by opening up the tape and rewinding the reel manually), and one tape did get stuck that required the vcr to be destroyed to get it back out (repair shop did the destroying). I had 2 tv/vcr combos not work, since the vcr on them quit working. I refused getting one myself, instead opted for a dvd/vcr combo that still works.

Seems the mother is believing "Boys will be boys." which is actually bullshit.

The 'too stupid to own a console' is based on the Rinkworks Computer Stupidities story where someone said that they were too stupid to own a computer. Yes, I did have people who weren't too bright when it comes to game consoles. It was bad enough when they thought the volunteer program was the actual tech support team. They would try to demand refunds for remaining subscription time, since their console no longer worked or they switched to another company. Seriously, if you're the parent, guardian; who doesn't know shit about consoles, but the kid does. Let them explain the issue to tech support, and not your shitty ass. Its funny when they threaten to go to another company, who will have similar issues, that won't do them any good.

Console tech support is a hell lot worse. Many times, I was tempted to tell them that they were too stupid to own a game console. I couldn't since I would be booted from the volunteer tech support program, which I eventually left.

I would've jokingly asked if her friends wanted a job. Seems they were acting like her posse or something.

Its bad enough when they think memory means hard drive space, when memory means physical ram in the system. Having spare hard drives can be useful, in case you need to replace any. I'm surprised the boss didn't ask for the rest of the pc.

And you wonder why this site exists in the first place. I do have a few printers sitting around, but getting them to work would be a bitch to do so.

Arby's was located near Shopko for years. A school was torn down (long story), part of the lot was used for Arby's new location. Their old building was remodeled into a car dealership. Pity that they could've had 2 Arby's here. The other part of the lot had a different building put up, which had Movie Gallery, that closed down later on.

Burger King & one of the McDonald's was torn down and rebuilt. The other McDonald's was remodeled, but not rebuilt. Taco Johns remodeled adding on more roof and an extended eating area. Taco Bell used to be next to Burger King (No joke). They have since moved out near Menards. Their old building was used for Papa Johns. Not sure if they still that building today. Little Caeser's took over an old casino building. Their previous place from years back is now a car dealer lot. One of the Subways moved into an old pet store after remodeling it. Yes, they needed the extra space the pet store had at the time. Godfather's closed after almost 20 years, their building was torn down and an office building went up. 2nd Subway moved into the main floor, moved from a previous location. Godfather's later returned as a pickup/carry out place next to a gas station, which used to have a couple garages for washing your car in. Pizza Hut closed both of their locations and moved out by the Lakewood Mall and built a new building. Their old buildings was remodeled to remove the Pizza Hut design. One of them became another fast food place, the other is a flower shop. Wendy's added on additional seating, but the building hasn't changed much. Steak & Buffet closed and the building was used for a pawn shop (in the back), audiologist (in the front on the right). RG's Family restaurant became IHOP and remodeled. Aunt Chilota's closed down after so many years, the lot is now used by a small coffee shop. Located next to a gas station, that was remodeled since they no longer worked on cars. Maverick's built a new building next to Target. Their old building is currently being remodeled for another food place. Hong Kong restaurant was closed for reasons unknown, but has since been remodeled as an Asian food place. Some employees went to work at Stir Fry 88 out at the mall. Hardee's became Carl's Jr. Building wasn't remodeled. KFC moved out by Menards and became KFC/Long John Silvers. Their old location was remodeled into a non food place. Thatzza Pizza stayed in the same 2 locations for years and they haven't remodeled either. 3rd Subway moved to the mall replacing Grandma's Deli, which had closed down months prior. 4th Subway is at Walmart. 5th and final Subway is on Hwy 281. Starbucks is inside Target, replacing an older eatery. You could guess how long it took to remodel, but who cares?

@AmigaTech @HormonalHolly During Homecoming week one year, a local grocery store had a sign stating: No sales of eggs to anyone under 21. I kinda wished they kept the sign up after Homecoming week just to see them bitch about needing ID to buy eggs.

There is a Vacuum Cleaner store here in town that had a gorilla in front of it. Every now and then, they decorate it with stuff. But I haven't checked to see if they're still business or not.
