Should have tried viral marketing for an upscale place. Like Olive Garden.

Why do I get the feeling he's a plant? I still vaguely recall an Applebee's fiasco sometime ago on FB.

Heh. I used to work with a young couple and the girl once complained to him "I wish you'd take me someplace nice once in a while. Like Olive Garden."

I went to Applebee's on new year's eve because I had received a gift card for Christina. Big mistake. I ended up with food poisoning.

Hilarious? Not so much...

Why would you take Christina's gift card?

You whored out some poor girl and were paid with a gift card?

Serves you right for stealing poor Christina's gift card.

Thanks for the laughs guys. We all know I meant Christmas. I should probably not drink and play online at the same time.

The only thing I know about Applebees is that the food looks great in the commercials, but when I sit down in one with a menu, there is never anything I'm interested in eating.

Came for the "I got food poisoning once from X chain." Leaving satisfied.

Not something you should try at home as there are plenty of pros here who do it better than you ever will.  But if you want to, the trick is that you've got to work your way up to it.  You can't just get smashed and start posting; that only leads to regret and anger. You need to start out slow and build up your tolerance, to the point that you can't log onto Fark unless you've had a fifth and have another fifth at hand.

Sounds like lunch.

He's not a plant from Applebee's. He's even so proud of himself, they mention it on the 4th reprint of the first issue of one of his new comics.

The Applebee's side of the conversation sounds like it's from a SocialBot. Be funny if this guy finds out five years from now he's been corresponding with a piece of software.

Every millennial is a comedian. It is so farking exhausting and unamusing.
 
2014-01-05 02:51:09 PM
How is this news? This is the bare minimum of running social media for a business.
 
2014-01-05 03:45:27 PM
On the upside, folks that play candy crush 16 hours a day now have someone to look down on..
 
2014-01-05 04:13:17 PM
That was mildly amusing.
 
2014-01-05 05:15:59 PM
It makes sense.  I mean, they don't spend their budget on food.
 
2014-01-05 05:49:03 PM
Why the fark would they censor the location name?

I had a horrible experience at a local Applebee's last spring. Got on FB later that evening and pissed and moaned to a few friends about it in such a way that by using the name FB automatically linked up to the AppleB's local page. Within minutes, to my shock and dismay, I got a PM from them wanting to know what happened, what they could do to make it right.

One time, I got something that seemed like it would actually be good. It was some kind of special steak. I ordered one medium-rare and the excuse for why it came out medium well was that the plate was hot. I told the waitress to let the kitchen know and I don't care if it hit the plate medium-rare, it should be medium-rare when it gets to me. They managed to get it down to medium. On the other hand, at least I didn't walk into Wing Stop and order a dozen wings "well-done".

I prefer posting on Fark after I've eaten a sandwich. Makes the threads much more amusing.

It was a mistake, obviously.

But some poor 'shopping, since the timestamps don't line up.
