So Garrett and I just drove by In-n-Out (which is fairly close to the Southcentral Bureau), and I am alarmed to report that THE LINES HAVE GOTTEN LONGER.
The drive-through line snakes around the parking lot, past the main El Con entrance and down Randolph Way to the intersection with Broadway Boulevard. The line of people stretches out the door westward, to within about 20 feet of the former Krispy Kreme.
OK, now, I like In-n-Out burgers. I really do. But it is STARK RAVING LUNACY to wait lines these long, people. If you are in this line, were in this line, or were tempted to get in this line, GET HELP NOW.
UPDATE: As of 11 p.m., the car line still snaked back past the Krispy Kreme and almost to the mall entrance/Randolph Way, although helpful unformed In-n-Out employees were directing traffic, albeit with stunned looks on their faces. Meanwhile, the line of people out the door was only (*ahem*) 40 feet long or so.
I fear for the future of our planet at times like this. I really do.
