It's a slippery slope! Taco Bell will be next!

Lulz, England. Butter knives and fried chicken--everyone knows they're too dangerous to sell to minors.

Considering where McDonalds statistically tends to place its restaurants neighborhood-wise, they shouldn't turn kids away so much as cal in the cops and have then hold 'em until they can have a very stern talk with you about the duties of a parent supervision-wise.

I mean, obviously it's the mail so it's a fake story anyhow, but yeah.

They are both excellent fast-acting laxatives.
 
2014-04-29 05:42:26 AM  
Can't we at least let the kids cause a scene before determining them to be delinquents? If they start throwing food, hold them and call the cops. Lazy brits don't want to clean up, which they should be doing anyway so WHO CARES

Very much this. Although, the last time I had Popeyes(about two months ago), I got horrible, horrible food poisoning from the dirty rice. Much like the guy that craved KFC fortnightly, the wife and I would get Popeye's two, three times a month. We haven't been back since, not because I don't crave it, because I do, but spending a solid 6 hours puking my guts out has kind of soured me. shiat happens, I don't hold it against them, but my belly strongly protests.

shiat, when I was growing up you'd routinely get denied service if there wasn't an adult with you, especially if there was more than one teenager in the group.

That's because blacks and gays are humans and deserve to be treated as such. Children and teens are not and should be tasered frequently.

Have you *ever* made a comment that wasn't racist?

Have you ever thought about keeping your thoughts to yourself? Trust me, it would be a matter of self-interest. One of those "better to keep one's mouth shut than remove all doubt" situations.

I like how the Daily Fail has to repeat the same point three goddamned times within a few lines, so it feels like you're going crazy reading the same thing over and over again...

Headline: Teenager told he is 'too young' to buy box of CHICKEN by KFC staff who said the boy and his brother might 'mess about' and 'throw food' if they were served

Ok... A bit long for a good headline, but whatever...

Subheading: A teenager was told by staff at KFC that he was too young to buy chicken ... Staff refused to give the schoolboy a chicken meal because they feared he would 'mess about'

Uh, yeah... You just said that...

Opening paragraph: A teenager was turned away from a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant by staff who said he was too young to buy a box of chicken. ... Staff told the boys that they feared they would 'throw food' and 'mess about' if they were given the fast food.

Jesus farking Christ!

Now, I'm confused... Was he in fact too young to buy chicken? Did the staff fear he would "throw food" and "mess about"? I need to hear it a couple dozen more times before it really sinks in!

/And, the random ALL CAPS for emphasis just makes the craziness all the crazier!

2014-04-29 07:43:26 AM  
As it's reported in the Daily Mail I'm sure it all played out exactly as reported. It can't possibly be that there are any mitigating circumstances of any kind.
 
2014-04-29 07:43:47 AM  
Eh, they're in business to sell chicken and make money.  They likely have enough experience with profiling the kind of punk kid who loses them money in cleaning costs.  They weighed the risks and came to a business decision.

I've seen this done in a lot more places than just the daily fail and it's really annoying.

I'm betting it's because there's really nothing else to add to the article and/or people's attention spans are minuscule these days.

/Maybe there is some kind of hidden message they are trying to brainwash into people?

Unfurled beneath a real great buy

I noticed the lady handing out free samples at the grocery store won't allow children to have any if a parent isn't present.  She cited possible food allergies as the reason for the policy, so I can't really argue against turning kids away.

At first I was wondering if the KFC in England turned him away because the secret ingredient is the same over there as it is over here, meth.

Considering KFC is literally the most unhealthy fast food restaurant on the planet, I'm OK with this.  It'd be like selling the kid cigs
 
2014-04-29 09:01:39 AM  
The reasoning is a bit wrong. Other kids had apparently made a mess, so these kids were being denied service as a result. These kids were picking up food because their father was going to be late coming home from work. It sounds like they were getting carry-out, so why would KFC refuse service because they "might" make a mess if they were not going to be eating in the restaurant?
