I don’t go to Burger King much, but yesterday I used the drive-through at the store on Veterans Parkway. My son had been bugging me for weeks to go to Burger King. I’m not sure why, maybe he’s seen the ads for whatever toy their giving away in their kids meals.
After ordering, I pulled up to the first window to pay. I noticed a sign on the window stating that taking pictures or video of prohibited. Huh? What’s that about?
I paid the woman and decided I would try to sneak a picture of the sign. How ironic it would be! But I stopped myself. While it would have been satisfying to take the forbidden picture, I had to weigh that against the (remote) possibility of them withholding my son’s kid meal. The resulting fit of a five year-old would have been horrible and a penalty I wasn’t willing to risk. So I put my iPhone down and compliantly took my change and moved on to with window where the food awaited. But I’ll be back, Burger King, I’ll be back. And I will take a picture of that sign. I just won’t have my son with me.
Still, I wonder what that sign is all about. What mischief has been caused by photographing the Burger King cashiers? Why is photography being banned in the drive-through? Does McDonalds have a similar problem?
