The big news out of Denver over the last five days or so has been the opening of an In-N-Out burger joint in the suburb of Aurora and the insanely long line people sat in just to get a burger and fries. Friday, the Aurora Police Department estimated that the line stretched 1 1/2 to 2 miles long and maxed out at a 14-hour wait. Some customers didn’t get their food until 2 a.m.
As you’d expect, emotions ran high as people waited for that moment when they could wrap their mouths around a $5 burger. At one point Friday, those emotions boiled over, and a guy in line wearing his trusty sweatpants ended up throwing fists with fellow In-N-Out fans who decided to keep themselves busy by fighting. What else are you supposed to do while waiting 14 hours for food?

By Saturday, the drive-thru line had dropped to eight hours while the walk-up line wait was about an hour. Things have settled down, and the Aurora PD has stopped providing updates on the weirdos waiting in those crazy lines. Police were told In-N-Out expected to sell 60,000 burgers over the weekend. This is where we stand in 2020. No more camping out for concert tickets. Now people sit in their cars, scroll through their phones, send Snaps to their friends, tell each other how great they look on Instagram, and then gorge on a Double-Double at 2 a.m.
What are we doing, people? Have we never had a burger and milkshake before? Someone reading this explain to me what’s happening to society that we wait in any line longer than 30 minutes for drive-thru food. Someone who waited 14 hours needs to step up and explain the thought process behind it. Was it that once you were in line, it was impossible to get out? Talk to me. I need to dig into your brain.
Somebody's car died in the In-N-Out Burger line here in Aurora, CO 🤣 an In-N-Out employee came to save the day with a jump though! Sorry for the dirty window and my poor word choice when I said "Someone died in the In-N-Out line" 😅 a person didn't die, a car died lol.
