You sure? This is McD which has all sorts of wraps for all sorts of things.

Some places if the ice cream is to eat in, it's served in a dish unless a cone is requested.

Had a co-worker talking to me last week who was amazed I rode my bike to work (300 mile commute and every time he sees me in the office we have this conversation)

Once he found out I rode in his first question was "how many miles is that?" Same amount of miles as in a car, jackass. Unfortunately, I didn't have my A-game with me so I responded with the actual miles.

Second question was "how many breaks did you have to take?" ONE, for fuel!

His response was "oh man!" I can only go for about an hour before I start to hurt.

I've only bothered to ride in twice myself (250 mile round trip) but sure did get odd looks and comments.
Had to stop a few times on the KTM as the stock little 2.3 gallon tank makes that sort of commute make less sense.

That's the everyday commute for the past 12 years until lately when I've been able to do some work at home a day or two a week.
Hell, I'd do it every day on the bike in the decent weather but it's such a waste of tires.

Did that count as a stupid question?

Well, in my neck of the wood, an ice cream cone always comes...in a cone. Unless you ask for a sundae.

Sure there is. She punches it in and that is tracked with all the other sales...



p.s. I get food "to go" all the time on my motorcycle. If they just pulled out a tray and ASSumed I was eating in because of my helmet and jacket, they'd be wrong 99% of the time. Nothing is more dreary than "eating in" at a fast food restaurant!

Some places there is No Tax on "togo" food. But there is on "Here"

Nah, not stupid, I just have never meet anyone that drove that far, just to get to work. If it makes you happy, and/or you are compensated well for your time in the car, then more power to you. Do you still have an 8 hour work day? Unless I am missing something (like you drive to work, then stay in a hotel for the week), the commute would turn an 8 hour day into a 12 hour day minimum.

Anyway, wrong thread I guess.... Carry on...

Few weeks ago i've been in an autopart store/machine shop to buy some stuff.
I went there with my motorbike (KTM ADV)
While paying the old guy asked: "Is that a diesel?" me, after about 5 seconds: "Nope"
