Mickey D’s Sweet Tea

It’s the only product on the menu we make fresh daily. People order it in droves. In the drive-thru, I fill 32oz. cups with ice, line them next to the dispensers. I’m always prepared for a big sweet tea order.

Corporate wants to see our drive-thru in action. They say we have the fastest time in the city. One of the owners takes two cups, pours out the ice, drains the dispenser of its famously sweetened contents. “Let’s see how it tastes.” She winks.

The next car has six passengers. They all want tea. My drive-thru time creeps past 100 seconds.
