Today a customer sent a prescription in through the drive-thru and said she’d send someone to pick it up later. Here’s the prescription she sent in:


Sadly, we were fresh out of 10W-40.

Moral of the story: if you have multiple papers in your car, you might want to double-check what you’re sending in the tube. Just a thought.
