Do you hate it when...?!?!

Don't you just hate it when you go through the drive thru late at night somewhere and get something messy, only to realize when it's too late THEY DIDN'T PUT ANY NAPKINS IN YOUR BAG with the food???!? I used to hate it, but after a couple bad experiences I always keep some extra napkins in my car, or I am sure to ask them for extra napkins. WHat about you? DO you keep napkins handy in your car, just in case?

The Burger King in our town never gives out napkins unless you ask for them. Most of the time I forget until I'm already headed down the road and my Whopper starts dripping on my shirt, or I get stuff on my hands as I'm trying to drive.

Yes -- it's very aggravating! Next time try to remember to ask for some extra napkins and keep a stockpile in your glove compartment! It comes in handy! Have a great weekend. :)

I am a regular boy scout when it comes to my car, I have everything in there, for every possible purpose, I even have a filled first aid kit in there as well, blanket in case I break down and bottles of water, so yes I have a box of tissues too, mansize or should that be wolfiesized just for the occasion as I can be a messy eater and there's nothing worse than a sticky steering wheel!

I agree! Yes, it's best to be prepared! I used to have some moist towelettes in my car as well (and a few other things just in case) -- but they all dried up. Must have been a hole in the packaging or something. :-/

to start i have no car so i dont go to drive through, but i always take to go orders for sometimes i am in a hurry and can no longer eat that food there. it is okay for me if they forgot to put napkins. i always have something handy inside my bag. i even have wipes for messy food. i hate it when they forget to put ketsup for my fries or straw for my drink. it is hard to drink without straw when you travel.

hi bethany oh yes I really do as you usually have something drippy or oozing an nothing to catch it. so I also have taken to bringing my own just in case. but if you go inside you can sort of self serve yourself and grab a bunch of napkins to mop up the oozes that always seem to happen.

I always keep extra napkins and salt because those drive thru folks have a timer they are trying to beat so if they forget my stuff I'm screwed. I've gotten some hot fries with no ketchup or salt, I turned around and drove right back to get what I needed. I've learned my lesson, keep extra stuff in your car.
