McDonalds has been testing a system that uses remote facilities to take orders from drive thru locations.

If the com box doesn't work very well with a distance of 25 feet how on earth is it expected to work better at 250 miles or more?

Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

Right now the call centers are in the U.S..
It's only a matter of time before they are farmed out overseas.

In other words, I can't understand their broken english now, so there won't be any noticeable difference anyway...

I saw at Wal-Mart yesterday where you can place your McDonalds order at the check out line (Wal-Marts) and then go pick it up when you are ready!

My friendly local SuperCenter has this "service." I had to test it out once just because it's so rediculous.
