Not worth the hassle

Dear Editor:I so enjoyed your letter to the editor regarding the McDonald's on Lakewood and Gallatin. ("Confusion at McDonald's,"‚Äà7/1/10) Yes, there is a problem. I, too, do not understand why the city of Downey has not stepped in to remedy the drive-thru problem. It causes severe congestion in that already busy parking lot. You don't know if you should wait on the right side or on the left, cars are always blocking the lanes and, worst of all, the wait is terrible and when you are able to make it, your food is usually cold or your order is wrong. I used to stop by on my way to work before hitting the 5 Freeway, and no matter how much earlier I would leave my house, I was always stuck in that McDonald's traffic mess. I ended up skipping my McDonald's run altogether because it wasn't worth the aggravation. - Nancy Long, Downey
