Though drive-throughs were made to make our lives easier, things do not always go smoothly. There are mainly mixed-up orders thanks to dated intercoms, but queuing can be just as annoying.
Yet, there is nothing more infuriating than entitled customers. One woman was caught on camera while holding up the line to leave a space for her husband's pickup truck.
There are protocols for drive-throughs
Apart from quietly sitting in your car and waiting, people are encouraged not to ask for additional items once they are done ordering. Of course, it is a drive-through, not a walk-through, and you should always keep that in mind.
A viral TikTok video shows a woman attempting to bypass the long line by blocking off other cars so someone else in a truck can get in and order food.
Needless to say, the customers hated that this woman challenged the well-known protocol only to leave space for her husband's pickup.
In the video, you can hear a person saying, "I just pulled into McDonald's, and this lady is holding this spot in front of this van for her husband to cut us all in the drive-thru so that she can get her McDonald's first. There is a line for a f.... reason."
Comments on the video echoed the frustration, with many wondering why those waiting in line didn't voice their concern or hold down their car horns and signal for her to exit the line.
The video was added to TikTok's channel titled karen_in_wild. It gained over 2k comments and was reposted on other social networks.

Most commentators were livid
Many wondered why didn't she just take the order inside the restaurant.
One person made a joke and gained over 14k likes on TikTok, writing, "Please tell me someone McRan Her Over."
Another TikTok user wrote, "Everyone should just hold their horns down."
This poster cheekily asked, "And no one else got McMad??"
A user named John pointed out, "If I was the husband, I would just drive away...embarrassing!"
A few did not see the problem
Though comments were mainly against the entitled behavior, some were not so quick to judge.
One comment said," Maybe the inside was closed. She couldn't get in line with the vehicle yet, so she stood there. I see no problem with it unless she cut, & she didn't."
Another wrote, "it seems like she's in line."
And there was a comment that found a silver lining: "Even if she is being a "Karen" gotta admit what a loyal wife she is… like how embarrassing to stand there."
Perhaps this person wanted to diffuse the comment section, as they wrote, "Well, I mean if she was waiting there the whole time, what's the difference if you are sitting in line and she's standing."
What do you think? Was the woman acting completely out of order, or was she merely taking a fresh spin on the drive-through protocol? Drop a comment!
