Drive-Thrus Done to Death

My husband often says that everything this side of the pond is designed with the convenience of car users in mind, and he should know – he’s a transportation engineer! It was one of the biggest culture differences to come to terms with when we first moved to Canada from the UK, ranking #1 on my list of 5 Things No-One Tells You that I shared in my column over at ExpatFocus earlier this month.

Today at school pick-up, as I described the goldfish experience of being scrutinised by the drive-thru queue while having coffee at Tim Hortons, a friend happened to mention drive-thru wakes in the US. Yes, you heard me right – drive-thru wakes…

Many thanks to Caroline for this gem of cultural curiosity.

What do you think? Will it catch on this side of the border?
