A Jacksonville KFC worker committed restaurant health violations, then was arrested after hitting a customer with chicken, police say.

Fortunately, she just winged him.

I have to go to KFC's here in Jax every once in a while for my parents as they love their chicken pot pies (and it's hard at their age to drive a lot). Every time I have gone to the closest one, the employees either act like it is someone else's job to take a counter order OR they just ignore me for 2 or 3 minutes before finally asking what I would like to pay them for. Or you order it, they say it's all in the bag & you get home and NO, IT ISN"T! KFC is sending me a voucher for the last time they did this.

/getting on Twitter and saying they messed up is surprisingly effective.

With the food tossed in his face, was his salad tossed as well?

Yeah, if she through the gravy at him it might have done a serious injury

Sounds like you're keeping abreast of the situation.

Never pissoff the person making your food.  Or handling your breasts and thighs either.
 
2019-01-21 04:13:59 PM  
I won't go to the KFC near me.  The food tastes fine but the people working there are dumb as a stump and it's an ordeal to make a simple purchase.  Every. Damn. Time.

As an added bonus I'll probably live longer, too.

My mom had multiple instances of them not giving her the number of pieces of chicken she asked for or forgetting one of her sides.  The last time she went, she made sure to count everything before driving off.

Jenkins begins to record Simmons. Simmons returns to the window to ask, "Why was you recording?"
Jenkins replies, "Whatever I wish. This is America, remember? You forgot where you live?"


They were both wrong. Yes the KFC worker should have washed or gloved up. When she asked the guy why he was recording he should have told her why instead of being a facetious asshole and dropping the "this is America" crap.

Years ago my father asked me to stop by a KFC and get a 10 piece bucket of original, the kid at the counter was having trouble counting to ten. He just kept asking me if that was enough.

The local KFC closed down last month. They painted all the signs including the bucket completely black.
Kinda weird & spooky-like.

KFC QoS has dropped to basement levels.

I don't know if it's more difficult to own and run a KFC than other fast food franchises, but every single one I've been to has had subpar service.

It's this kind of thing that makes me feel not so bad when the Japanese side of the company buys out the parent American company and implements changes as in the case of 7-Eleven.

"Simmons was not eligible for an NTA due to her admitting that she would not show up to the court date..."

That's the best part.
 
2019-01-21 04:23:59 PM  
I like how you can clearly hear her say, "I'm about to throw this food in the car in a minute," before throwing the food in the car, which she later denies doing.

I'm glad they noted that in the story or this thread would of turned into arguing as to whether it was fair for get to spend two days in jail waiting to make bail.

WHat is it with certain "folk" that they cannot conjugate the verb "to be".  Is this not taught in 6th grade city schools?

Many localities have a rule requiring signs to be removed from businesses that go under.

It is.
We should pay them more for such grueling tasks. Counting to ten calls for executive pay.

I have a KFC, Popeyes, Church's, Bojangles and Zaxby's all within 5 miles of me.  Zaxby's is ok most of the time, but the others all suck.  The one thing I miss most about living on the other coast is the lack of El Pollo Loco.

As an aside, I'll be bookmarking this for the next "we all deserve $15/hour!" arguments.

You're missing that $15/hr would probably draw in better candidates. Not definitely, but probably.

So you are simply going to dismiss talking like an idiot as dialects?    Why do southerns sound southern, Massachutts folks sound obnoxious when pronouncing car as caahhh but, inner city folk in every city have this same speech pattern?  It's not regional.

Cop was wrong too for arresting her.  Fine her, write her a ticket, but why arrest her?

(*whispers*: "She's black")

Oh.

Depends on how utterly miserable the company is to work for. If mid- to lower management is a bunch of needling pricks then it's reasonable to expect their bottom rung employees to suck. Maybe only people who DGAF as a way of life can stand to work there for any extended amount of time.

CSB
We had a different franchise near work that sounds about on par with yours.
First time they screwed the order - no biggie, shiat happens.
Next time (which included a chicken fillet burger sans chicken fillet, so salad roll) we got a half-hearted apology and if we wanted to drive back to the store they'd make another one.
Third time, the manager added us to 'The List' and told us that when (not if) this happens again, tell the cashier we're on 'The List' and they'll comp the order. We did not go back.

I can understand the frustration, but did you expect them to deliver a replacement to you?

Reminds me of the only fight I ever saw at a fast food outlet. This was at a KFC years ago and as I entered the counter woman was screaming and cursing at three guys who were screaming and cursing back. They finally left, shouting threats as they went. I couldn't believe the manager let her get away with that, since that's a good way to have them escalate the situation or come back later with a gun. I didn't wait around to find out what the next stage, if any, was going to be.

/ Good times.

Nah.

There used to be a time in this country where people understood crap paying jobs were not for sustaining a family. They were there to get one on their feet. But we have people in this country that fail to rise above and beyond because someone needs they nails did or that new iPhizzle.

But saying shiat like that hurts feelings now. Well fark sake, Takwanda, No one had to farking explain to me the difference between a shiat job and a career. Maybe it's all that gd privilege I keep hearing about. Not the years of breaking my back.

Yeah, people who make 15 now will totally leave whatever job they have that actually pays them that much for a glorious career in fast food once it pays more...

No actually they'll rightly demand that if no skill workers are being paid 15, they should be paid more than that, which will just be chain reaction right up the pay scale, and then 15 an hour will be worth what 8 an hour is now and the signs will read 'Fight For 25' instead.

There's a KFC near us that we frequent about 4 times a year.
Every single visit the floor is so slick of grease one needs to walk slowly so as not to fall.
 
2019-01-21 06:11:47 PM  
The only KFCs near me are filthy so I just don't go there.  I'd rather have Church's anyday.
 
2019-01-21 06:12:03 PM  
I can understand getting upset at a screwed up order or health violation, but what do people think they're going to accomplish starting a confrontation with a person working a drive through? At the least the complaint needs to go to their supervisor.
