You’re not going to Shake Shack because it’s fast and convenient. It’s not. You’re going to wait for a half-hour in a line that snakes down the street. Your reward for sticking it out comes in the form of outrageously delicious cheeseburgers, crinkle fries, frozen custard concretes, and crispy chicken sandwiches. That’s why you’re going to Shake Shack. Just don’t tell your boss that you’ll be right back. You won’t.
