Dear People of Bloomington,
I don't know why know one has told you this yet, but by far the most efficient way to manage the traffic at a bank drive-through is to form ONE LINE, such that when a car pulls out of a lane, the person who has actually been waiting the longest gets to go next. This is far more efficient and fair than having everyone randomly picking a lane to wait in. So if you see a car waiting when all lines are full, you should assume that they are waiting for a lane to become open. You should not, under any circumstances, pull around in front of them the moment a car at the teller station appears to be getting ready to leave. That makes you an ASSHOLE. No, it makes you a STUPID ASSHOLE.

Best,
Linguafranca
