Popeyes employee sings to customers in drive-thru

Popeyes Employee Sings to Customers in Drive-Thru

People in New Orleans get a musical treat with their meals on the go! HLN has more.

'A woman who works at a drive-thru at the local Popeyes will sing you the menu.'

Cynthia Carter has been working at the Popeyes' drive-thru for 26 years, has become such a hit that people reportedly request that she take their order!

'Nine nugget with the fry, and barbeque sauce, two apple pie!'

Local station WGNO tells us Carter's performance makes you forget your troubles, and sometimes even your food!

'Girl, you forgot your order, girl! -- Ooo, oooo!'

And the Popeyes customers aren't the only ones who enjoy her free-style menu songs: her boss says she may have found her calling.

Carter's boss Darlene Weston also tells WGNO that customers say Carter never fails to brighten their moods when they're having a bad day.

Thank you for being you, Ms. Carter!

She's GREAT. She works at the Kenner,La. Popeyes.If you are ever down there, it'll be worth the trip to see her and get some good chicken too. We went there regularly before moving to Ohio.

An old saying still holds true. If you like what you do for a living, you'll never have to work a day in your life.

Now this is humility and grace. Don't imagine she makes alot working there, but she's happy to simply be working. God Bless her!

I think I ran across this lady in early 2006 not long after Katrina. Popeye's was a madhouse of people ordering and waiting for their food, and she was an island of serenity amid the chaos. She was calling out orders in rhymes, such as "Number 66, come get your chicken fix" and "Number 67, you're about to enter chicken heaven." She made the whole experience enjoyable.

How sweet. And it probably helps the day go by faster for her as well.

B-b-b-but when I asked the gal at urger King to sing that "Hold the pickle, hold the lettuce" song she just gave me a funny look. ☺
