I heard about and went to a ‘Food Truck Friday’ event in my hometown. This event was from 5:00-8:00pm. I didn’t realize the crowd of people that food trucks could bring in.
I’m in line at 5:15 here and finally made it to the order window at 6:00! We’re talking 45 minutes just for ONE food truck! Then had to wait 15 more minutes for my order to cook.
To top it all off, by the time I made it to the window to place my order they were completely out of burritos and fish tacos. I mean, how in the world do you run out of food within 45 minutes of the event starting? There were only 5 items on the menu to begin with, for Pete’s sake!
And I just happened to get the last two chicken fajita sandwiches. So now they’re down to selling only two things on their menu—burgers and brats. And there was still a MASSIVE line behind me!
Those poor people in line could only hope there were burgers and brats left by the time they got to the front of the line.
It was ridiculous. There were food trucks all around the perimeter. So the thought of standing in another line to try another food truck just didn’t appeal to me after that experience. I just wanted to head home already.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, try different food trucks in your part of town—just NOT at a food truck event.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Queuing/Standing in line all day is not an ideal enjoyable outing—especially only to find out there’s not much food left once it’s your turn.
