Drive Thru Etiquette

So is there such a thing??

The other day I was in line at the Uncle Timmy's drive thru and one driver was leaning out the car window with a list in her hand talking to the box. After a couple of minutes I pulled out of line and went inside instead. When I walked out she was just getting her order. In other words, she really tied things up for a while.

So the question is, is this an etiquette issue. Should you go inside if you have an order that'll take a while to expedite?? Or for some other reason that I can't think of??

Just to point out a few facts, she didn't have a child in the car. It wasn't raining and she didn't have a handicap sticker anywhere. All would be understandable reasons for being in the drive thru.
