From The Babylon Bee:
FRESNO, CA—A local family ended up spending over a hundred dollars on their fast-food meal Monday when they got stuck idling in the drive-thru for ten minutes. Due to high gas prices, what used to be a convenience has turned into a crippling expense for millions of American families.
“Oh no!” exclaimed Suzy Williams as she steered into the drive-thru lane. There were five cars ahead of her. “This is going to take forever! It’s going to cost me a fortune!!!”
She quickly put the car in reverse and was ready to put the pedal to the metal, but another vehicle came from behind and blocked her in.
“NOOOOOO!!!!!” she cried. “I can’t afford this!”
According to sources, the entire family became upset. Suzy’s husband, who’d passively opted for the passenger seat, was now regretting his decision.
“We’re going to go bankrupt!” he grumbled. “If I was driving this would have never happened!”
“Don’t you think I know that!” she screamed. “MOOOOOOOOVE!”
Witnesses report Suzy Williams then laid on her horn as if it would help matters. Unfortunately, it did not. Now the Williams family may not be able to afford rent this month.
The Williams family filed for government assistance later that day, knowing they would continue to experience hardship related to rising gas prices. Unfortunately, their application was denied because they failed to buy an electric car.
