CR, I'd forgotten about the drive thru funeral parlors. Drive thru churches? Wow... And we didn't mention drive-in movies or drive-in anything.
Years ago I had a dingy stupidvisor... I mean supervisor! Anyway, a co-worker was passing a Jack-in-the-Box when he heard someone beeping a car horn unmercilessly.
(Guys, this is a well known American chain of fast food/hamburger-type restaurants much like MacDonald's.) It was our supervisor. Gene had tried to take a short-cut to the bank and had somehow entered in error the drive-thru lane of the Jack-in-the-Box. She was honking her horn in an effort to get the cars ahead of her to move so she could continue to the bank. I wish I could have seen it.
(By the way, guys, "dingy" with a soft G [as the G in George or the J in major] means descolorido, sombrio, etc. "Dingy" with a hard G [as in golf or go] means maluco, tolo, disligado, bobinho, burro, etc. Gene wasn't the smartest person I'd ever met.)
