Re: KFC

Awhile back I was going through a chicken wing phase and at the time the only place near me to get them was KFC. There were three (possibly four) times in a row when I went there (between 6:00 PM and 6:30 PM) to get some wings and each time I was told that they weren't "ready" and it would be a 20 minute wait.

Three (possibly four) times in a row!! During the dinner hour, when you'd think they would have quite a bit prepared and ready to go. So yeah, I'm on board with the KFC hate.

It doesn't help that I ate an entire 10-piece family meal all by myself.

Re: KFC

I never go through drive thorugh cause they always seem to mess up the order, see Lethal Weapon 2. Ordering inside I have never had and issue. A few years back in another city I order several items for me, my wife, and her parents. I was told 3 of the 4 items were not available because someone did not show up for work or some crap.

Re: KFC

We got KFC two weeks ago. I always get the big crunch combo (spicy, of course) and my husband enjoys his two piece meal but gets two chicken breasts instead of one chicken breast and one drumstick.

Anyways, we went to eat it at the park and when he opened his box up, they gave him these ridiculously small chicken breasts. You have to pay extra for that shit so he was pissed.

I got a ton of fries with my meal so I won.

Now I'm craving KFC. We have two really good ones here where I live. I guess I know what I'm having for dinner.

Re: KFC

KFC sucks where I live. When they were rolling out the barbecue chicken I went there and ordered the regular fried chicken. They were conveniently out of the fried chicken and it would take 15 minutes to get the next batch ready, but there was plenty of barbecue chicken if I wanted some. I reminded her that Popeye's was about a mile down the road and I'd take my business there, which I did and it was delicious.

I have a real problem with this one Taco Bell near my house. If you order something that isn't a combo meal, or if you get really crazy and order multiple combo meals they'll screw it up every time.
One time I picked up dinner for my wife, son, and myself and the managed to screw up every item in the order. The drinks were right, but that was it. I got home, noticed everything was wrong and went back and stood in line inside this time. When it was my turn, I informed the kid that just went through the drive through and the entire order was wrong and that they could have it back. I made a big deal of hoisting the bag up and dropping it on the counter. I couldn't even look at the kid behind the counter because right at that moment I felt like a total dick head, but as I stormed out the guy in line behind me was laughing his ass off.

I can't eat a lot of greasy food anymore... Therefore, fried chicken is a collossal error if I eat it. And my brother lives near an Ezell's Famous Chicken. And that stuff isn't too greasy... It's yummy.

Says the guy posting his business on a public message board? Did all you expect to hear was commisseration?
Yep, and it was mostly fine till you showed up! Back to your original point, me spilling my own beverage and them not including stuff I paid for are mistakes that are worlds apart. They essentially scammed me by not giving me what I paid for.
It's pretty simple: take five seconds and check the bag before you pull away. Should you have to? Nope. Should you? Yep.

It's like defensive driving. Assume the other guy is an idiot.

If that's too much to ask an adult, you suppose you could nuke a microwave dinner? I've never heard of one of those missing anything from one of the compartments, but I'm sure you'll be here soon with a "Where's teh friggin' PEACH COBBLER, Mrs. Swanson?!?" post.

Fast food places screwing up is not a new thing. Be smart about it. Or, don't be smart and miss out. Your choice.

Joe, shrugging

Re: KFC

I don't know how anyone can eat most fast food--Taco Bell, McDonald's, KFC, Burger King etc--. Its greasy and has about an entire day's worth of calories.

Even their so-called "lite" menu items are not particularly healthy as far as fat content or calories.

They always fuck up my orders. I'm done with them.

I went through the drive thru, ordered a 3 piece chicken strip meal with mashed potatoes and gravy and mac and chee. They asked if I wanted honey/butter for the biscuit, I said yes. When I got home, there was no honey or butter. Oh. And no biscuit. And instead of mac and chee, they give me some beans or something.

How fucking hard is it? I mean, they managed to enter the order correctly, everything on my receipt was correct. I typically check my drive thru orders to make sure they don't screw up, but there's only so much you can do... as in, I see the box where the chicken and biscuit should be, check, I see two containers for sides, check.

Seriously, I think they're at under 50% percent success for getting me the correct order. And it's not like I make huge orders for an entire family. I am ONE FUCKING PERSON. I order ONE FUCKING MEAL.

The McDonald's next door never screws up my order. The taco shop never screws up my order. In-N-Out never screws up my order (though to be fair they pay a couple of extra bucks an hour so that they can avoid hiring the most useless of the useless).

And why is it that all the fast food places force their drive thru monkeys to open with some script to the effect of "Would you like to try our brand new blah blah blah today?" It would almost make sense, except that they universally just mumble whatever new item they're trying to sell you. I can never answer yes to their question because I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THEY'RE SAYING!

Fuck you KFC. You're a bottomfeeder, even amongst other ghetto ass fast food joints. I hope your parent company Yum collapses in this economy and your blight is lifted from the world.
People work there for a reason bro. It is what it is. Do you expect anything less?

No kidding. About 90% of the time I hit a place there's like 20 cars lined up in the drive through and nobody standing at the counter.
