It was the coldest day of December and everything outside was frozen with black ice on the street to ice on branches. I was scheduled to come to work at 6 p.m. Because of where I lived, I had no choice but to wake up two hours ahead to time due to the weather and getting dress. I glanced at the clock on wall and thought I had plenty of time to get some sleep. “Ruff, Ruff, Ruff,” as my alarm sounded off 1 hour later with the sound of a barking dog, but all I awoke to was the dream I had, thinking to myself how real it seemed as I got dressed and left out for work.
I arrived to work on time, but I was already aggravated because of the long, impatient line of people waiting to get served. Seconds later, I became even more aggravated because of drive- thru time (3:59) that I had to manage to bring down. So I was pushing orders out, taking orders, marking money at the same time until I realized there was something strange about the car up next. There was a woman driving with no passenger, but a man was sitting on the driver’s side in the back seat. I did not think much of it so I quickly took their money and continued to push orders out. After the rush was over, the same strange car came to the drive- thru again. This time the man was driving and woman was seated on the driver’s side in the back seat. As I took his twenty dollar bill he asked me questions, “Where I know you from? Do you live around here? Are you enjoying this weather?” Once again, I did not think much of it. After my last car left, three hours later I was sent home two hours early
