4 or 5 windows and about 10 in store workers on cash windows, and gopher positions. No internal customer traffic.

       Believe it or not, in West Hollywood and Burbank, CA there are a couple of drive up stores dating back to God knows when where you can do this very thing. AltaDena Dairy Product was/is the core of the business foundation.

       In the film 'Double Indemnity' (1944), there's a great scene where Fred MacMurray goes to a drive-in bar! They actually pass him the open bottle of beer through his car window.

       In '78, I went through a drive through and had a bong re-iced. My passengers were impressed. Memmorriiieees.

       Fishbone for promoting unhealthy habit.

       I drunkenly hammed it up with a convenience store franchisee one night about the need to accept some risk of theft by allowing customers to browse which may increase sales, as I munched on microwave burritos.

       Bun for promoting a wonderful habit.

       Sp. Through.   

       To improve the health aspect:   

       Run through cigarrette store.   

       The store is located 400 yds from the road. Parking spaces are provided and the customer will only be served if they can make it from car to store in 90 seconds or less.

       Running may not be the best thing for smokers' lungs.

       Yeah, but ain't it fun watchin' ?

       Sure is. While we're on it, can we put all MacDonaldses and Burger Kingses on the far side of really insubstantial bridges across fast-flowing rivers?

       Sadly, fat people float well.

       <Personal gripe> I'd rather see a drive through cigarette factory - drive through repeatedly with a large bulldozer. Or a tank. Or both. </personal gripe - I don't like smoking>
