Mad_Radhu: imtheonlylp: besides, that's why you go to Chik-Fil-A for chicken...everyone knows that..

Unfortunately, Chik-Fil-A doesn't have any resturaunts in the Seattle area, plus as good as they are I feel guilty eating there when I travel now, after the political situation they created recently.


That's what's wrong with the world. Guilt. Go read some Mark Twain, especially "No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger."

Guilt is the worst motivator ever. Enjoy your chicken. Screw other people's opinions.

oh ffs I hate the consumerist as much as anyone else but at least try to get the general tone of the article right when writing your witty headline.
 
2012-09-06 12:46:36 PM  
The Consumerist used to be useful. Now it is a biatchfest.

Came here for the David Cross. Not surprised it was in the first 3 comments.

CravenMorehead: Let's see, misleading and inaccurate headline, name calling and general douche-baggery in the thread? Yup, it's Fark alright.


We would be utterly lost without your erudite and well thought out responses. Thank you for showing us the light, CravenMorehead!

daffy: I would want coupons for other things, if I had eaten there before and like them.

I asked for a sandwich with no mayo, (as I am allergic to it) at Boston Market. I was talking to another customer and the lady that took my order the whole time about how you should have to ask for mayo if you want it.
I sat down and took one bite and There it was, loads of mayo! I walked back to the counter and show the lady. She told the girl to get me another one with no mayo. Guess what she did. She used the same chicken and scraped off the mayo (not all). I called their home office and they were very nice. They sent me a coupon for any size single meal. Of course, i ordered the biggest one they had and made sure the girl was not near my food! sometimes it does pay to complain.


Just because you don't like mayo doesn't mean you are allergic to it.

Out of curiosity, which are you allergic to: oil, eggs, or vinegar/lemon juice? Plenty of people don't like mayo and that's fine - but if you are allergic to it then you are allergic to one of those 3 things and that affects a whole lot of foods. It would be less confusing, especially at restaurants, if you mentioned exactly what you are allergic to so they don't mistakenly kill you. Food allergies are nothing to be taken lightly.

PoochUMD: If I got food from a restaurant and felt it was tainted by chemicals and possibly unsafe to eat, I'd be pissed if the company didn't even acknowledge my concerns.

This isn't a "my food was cold, give me a free meal" situation, this is something that could make other people sick and the fact that KFC doesn't even care is disturbing.


Of course, he has no proof other than his word on it. Not even someone else in the office who verified the story. I wonder how many times a day they get these unverified complaints?

Love it because it's mostly true.
 
2012-09-06 01:16:24 PM  
What he finds disappointing is that he reported it to KFC using the form on their web site, then called them on the phone, and received no response. Why bother having a form at all? Why bother having a customer service number if all the representatives are authorized to do is shrug?

So that whole "questions and comments" phone number that you see on... well.. everything... it does not work? Thank the gods I never wasted my time giving a shiat.
 
2012-09-06 01:17:11 PM  
No where in that complaint did the guy ever even request free stuff. It's a fair enough question, isnt it? If you're given bad food and bad service but they dont give a damn, why DO they have a complaints procedure?
 
2012-09-06 01:18:24 PM  
*shrug* KFC corporate doesn't give a rats ass about anything that doesn't involve a court case. I watched one of their servers dump a bucket of chicken he was gathering for my order on the floor. Oblivious to the fact that I was watching him, he went all shifty eyed and disappeared in back. A minute later he returned to the window and handed off the completed order. When I got a chance to check the food, it was pretty obvious that he'd just scooped everything back into the bucket and served it to me.

I put in a complaint with dates, times, store number and order number. Not got a single word back.

I never bothered to follow up. Fark 'em. I just don't eat there anymore.

gunga galunga: In a perfect world, there would be a fried chicken fast food outlet with Popeye's chicken, Church's biscuits, KFC's mashed potatoes and gravy, and Chik-fil-A's diligence in the preservation of traditional marriages.


KFC's mashed potatoes? Why on earth... oh, I see - you're going to fill some holes in plaster walls, and after that you'll eat the chicken and biscuits. Got it.

My chicken is 99.7% pure.

They've shut down a bunch of them here. Funny, at one time KFC had more restaurants in more countries than McDonalds

Came here to pretty much say this. They sell food. They need to know if there's a problem, and if they never respond, that's not exactly a selling point. They need to be sure their food is safe.

Their chicken pot pie is tasty. The one I had was fine. No chemical taste, just chickeny goodness, and probably 50 grams of fat.

It would almost certainly have to be an allergy to eggs. Food allergies are the body responding to a protein. Oils are pretty much 100% fat and wouldn't trigger a reponse unless you were very allergic to the specific type of food the oil was derived from. Vinegar can be made from many different sources, and again you would have to be allergic to the specific source food it was manufactured from, but them you would be in the clear if it was made from another acid like lemon juice.

I just think he doesn't like mayo.

True, but it's not like he was asking for anything (the stuff about the coupons was apparently made up for the headline). How hard is it to email the customer and say "We're sorry to hear about the quality of product you received today. We are going to contact the manager right now to see what the issue is and what we can do to make sure it doesn't happen again."

Pre-Citizens United, I was all for that mindset. Now that corporations are people too, and have unrestricted freedom to affect the political process, politics and business are much more intertwined, so I can't ignore the politics of the companies I give my money to.

Yeah, but I do have to wonder if these complaints are in the thousands per day, maybe. I think the proper route for him would to be calling the store directly, corporate just adds levels of complexity anyway. I agree that some kind of email apology would have been nice, though.

I'm fairly sure although nasty things happen daily all across the country and people do complain and get ignored, the consumerist authors are just writing these letters themselves. why on earth do they always redact the town and any possible identifying information about the biatching consumer or the place of business? it is the opposite tactic you would use if you wanted to get a response.
withholding that information practically guarantees no company can ever appropriately respond, but also adds the convenient shield of ambiguity and ensures if anyone wanted to check on this story has no way to verify it.
 
2012-09-06 02:45:27 PM  
imagine seeing this.

"We here at 7-on-our-side would like you to meet lisa. We can't show you her face or tell you her last name or even the city she lives in order to protect the innocent.
We can't tell you where she lives, but what we can tell you she is one of the 6 million apartment renters in the state of Texas.
Her air conditioning hasn't work all summer and when she complained to her apartment manager he told her, quote, 'to buy a fan, or better yet sit on my dick and spin'.
Lisa's apartment complex is owned by Boston Capital, the largest apartment complex corporation in America. Boston Capital owns over 289,000 units across the country, 42,000 in Texas alone, and has 22 billion in annual revenue. We are hoping after we air this story they fix their customer service issues and Lisa can get some relief from the heat."

it's got to be bullshiat.

...Let me rephrase: If I went to KFC, I would assume the food would give me a heart attack in the near future from all the grease. I would not assume the food itself would be directly contaminated with poisonous chemicals or some kind of disease.

That second one is a fairly important thing. Also, why we as a society have the CDC and health inspectors.
