And then a pickup truck pulled up to the drive-through. Hmm, I thought. So I put my iBot in balance mode and pulled up behind the pickup, waiting patiently while he placed his order. After he drove ahead, I sidled up to the microphone, and the attendant asked me for my order. I requested one ice cream cone. Apparently not being able to see me yet, she instructed me to drive up to the first window to pay.
Idling the iBot behind the pickup truck again, I waited good-naturedly as he paid for his meal. This time he noticed me in the rearview, and I behaved as if this was the most natural thing in the world to be doing. He then pulled ahead to the second window to receive his food.
When I revealed myself to the cashier, I got some strange looks from her and another employee.
I said, "I bet you don't get many wheelchairs in the drive-through, do you?"
With a big smile on her face she replied, "No, you're the first one."
