I have always made fun of all the drive thrus that you can find in the US. You can get fast food, coffee, you're medicine, go to the bank, all without ever leaving your car. The stereotype of the lazy American lifestyle.
Hate to admit it, but in the last months I have started to use them! And they come in really handy when you have two little kids in the car or a sleeping baby. So today I got coffee at Starbucks and was able to deposit a check at the bank without waking Ella up, she slept like an angel. Soooo convenient!
I fear I am more americanized than I thought. ;)
