I was asked if my order was for here or to go when at an Arby's drive-thru once. I didn't even know what to say to the person I was so dumbfounded by their stupidity.

Haha, I run a small diner and told my wife, whose daughters are the wait staff, waiting doesn't mean waiting for Dad to do the work. Great stuff!
