I agree Hammer; I'm glad I'm not the only one with a no food policy & I had to learn the hard way. Several times I said no to food and they ask why and I explained what the last idiot did of making a mess and each time the present idiot would promise to not make a mess, spill, waste, etc. then they do it anyway! Now it's absolutely no food in my car and like Hammer said they get mad, argue, & rate you low. My question, Hammer & others, although you can refuse the trip in the beginning if you notice potential food, but what do you do or say when you notice them eating after the trip has begun? How do you say it?I've never had a drive thru experience because I've always said "no".
When they ask why, I don't tell them. I respond with nothing more than "would you like me to take you somewhere else?"
Don't tell passengers why you're saying "no", not just for drive thru requests, but other requests you don't want to do. Any reason you give, they will argue back at you with. Don't give them that ammo. The hardest person to argue with is the person who says the least. So say nothing more than "no" and "would you like me to take you somewhere else" and eventually they will realize they are getting no where with you.
Of course, if you WANT to do what they are asking, then by all means do it. But I have a strict "no food" policy in my car. Although I've never told that to a pax. Why? Because they would argue with me about it!!!
