Jaime, the McAlister's I go to is across the street from a hospital (the old ORU City of Faith hospital that Jesus threatened Oral to build - that is now a private surgical hospital), so they get a lot of business from doctors/nurses, and family members who don't have time for a bunch of shenanigans as you describe. I don't have to play 50 questions when placing my order and they always have more than one person at the counter.
Also, if you text in your order on their app, you just run in and grab and go, which is what I've started doing.
Another thing - why do you like to mentally torture me bragging about your trips to Der Wienerschnitzel? We lost ours years ago! I saw one near San Diego a couple of years ago when I was there, but didn't have time to stop. Broke my heart. We have Coney Islander here, but it is not the same at all.
