For someone with social anxiety, a small conversation with strangers can be quite a toll-taking task. Social anxiety is often overlooked and misunderstood. A man named Freddie (@petobsessed777) shared a video that is like a breath of hysterical relief for like-minded socially anxious people. He revealed how he orders at a drive-thru after having peak social anxiety and a whole spectrum of people can hilariously relate. Seated in his car, Freddie revealed, “I’m scared of ordering food. This is how I order as a 30-year-old with social anxiety.”

Inside Freddie’s car were three long sheets of paper attached to the visor and mirror for Freddie to read. The man had written down the entire conversation he would have at the drive-thru to make ordering easy for him. Right from the “hello” to the “thank you,” Freddie had every sentence and response written down. “Hello, can I get a McChicken,” he said. Freddie had also written down the responses that involved a “Yes” or “No.” “Anything else?” the server asked.

After Frieddie responded, he went on to share the specifics of his order. “No mayonnaise or no sauce,” he said. “Ketchup,” Freddie said, hilariously, beginning to feel awkward about the conversation and follow-up questions. He then looked through his sheet to see which was the next response. As soon as the server asked him what else he’d like to change or add to his order, without sparing a second, Freddie read like a robot, “More ketchup please.” Freddie knew he had almost won his battle and would finally receive his order. As his hysterical victory drew near, Freddie spoke his last dialogue to leave the drive-thru and head over to pick up his order.

“That’s all, thank you,” he said. One might wonder that the only task left now was to pick up his order and leave. However, those struggling with social anxiety know that there’s another task at hand- speaking at the pickup station.

Freddie had unfortunately forgotten to prepare for the same. “I forgot to prepare a script of what I’ll say at the pickup window. I drove away without my order,” he said. While people may find it absurd and stupid that he let his food go for the sake of a conversation, many will understand Freddie’s amusing plight and the tremendous pressure he was under.

@deefordixie said, “Please tell me this isn’t real.” @giggles_maniacally said, “My kid has this level of social anxiety, tough to work out. Good for you.” @reiv278 said, “I used to have this type of social anxiety. I would avoid talking to random people, even if I was supposed to, like in a store.” @ballerjones218 said, “As a person with genuine social anxiety paired with a chronic stutter, a script works 50/50 depending on my mental state.”
