You may not think this is that big of a deal, but it is a HUGE deal to me! I finally went through a drive thru for the first time in Big Mama! For those of you who don't know who Big Mama is, she is my big massive truck who I have trouble maneuvering and refuse to take through a drive thru for fear of getting stuck or driving through the actual restaurant.
Today I was super hungry. I felt like a bottomless pit because even after finishing my lunch at work I was still hungry. So, I decided to go get myself something else to eat but I needed to be quick because I had to get back to my office to pump by 2. I decided to get a burrito from a place called Miguel's. My original plan was to park Big Mama and run inside but then I remembered how compact their parking lot is and decided to brave the drive thru because it posed less of a threat to Big Mama. As I pulled up to the restaurant, there was a long line of cars and I had to just sit at the end of the line and visualize my myself driving Big Mama over the curb and getting stuck in the drive thru line with a bunch of hungry people behind me pissed off. I was snapped out of my day dream by loud honking behind me. I pulled up to the speaker and ordered my food with a shaky voice. My palms were sweaty and my heart was pounding as I approached the curve to get to the food window. I remembered my husband's instructions to take the turn wide, so I did. SHOOT! I hit the curb with my right tire. I told myself to calm down and just let the tire rub up against the curb and pulled forward to the sound of rubber scraping. But now I was too far from the food window. I felt like the biggest idiot as I leaned half of my body out the car window to pay for my food. I noticed two of the guys working there look at each other and laugh. I just know they were laughing at me and my inability to drive my truck properly. Finally, I got my food, drove away, and felt a strange sense of accomplishment despite my clumsiness. My first drive thru experience was a success minus a pulled muscle in my back from leaning so far out the window I almost fell out of the car and a few little scratches on the rim of Big Mama from the curb.
