I went to Sonic the other morning to get my usual Route 44 Diet Coke with extra ice, and I witnessed the saddest display of "roller-skating carhop skills" that I have ever seen... The poor girl spent the vast majority of her time clinging onto every available pole, wall, and automobile for dear life. I was truly relieved that she wasn't delivering my order because I would have hated to see a perfectly good Diet Coke go to waste!
I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that I'm not sure it's worth the extra 25 cents (if it's even that much) an hour to deliver food on roller skates when you are at great risk of bodily injury due to your own lack of skill. 25 cents an hour vs. three months out of work while in a body cast??? I think I'd go with keeping my feet firmly planted on the ground, thank you very much.
(On a different note - There's anothernewly pregnant teen carhop at my Sonic! And again... It was all I could do to keep my mouth shut and not ask her if she has an adoption plan for her child. ;-)
