Conversely, nobody ever got busy in a Popeye's bathroom.

For me, it's the McChicken. The worst fast food sandwich. I always have to ask for extra McChicken sauce packets and the staff is so unfriendly and never willing to oblige.

One time I asked for McChicken sauce packets and they gave me none. I said, "Wow, not even one!" and the rude unfriendly McDonald's worker laughed and said, "I'm going to call you not even one!".

Now the staff mocks me with "hey it's not even one!" and NEVER gives me an extra packet. It's such a depressing and douchey atmosphere at my local McDonald's restaurant, I try not to go more than 3 times a week for lunch or a large iced coffee with milk instead of cream, 1-2 times for breakfast on the weekend, and maybe once for dinner when I'm in a rush and am unable to get a great meal that is affordable, fast, and can match my daily nutritional needs.

I won't even dip my fries in McChicken sauce, it's disgusting! What a terrible restaurant.

Rev.K: Shut down Tim Hortons?

WHAT IS THIS YANKEE MADNESS?!?!


Bud, the only reason ya go there is ya hates coffee & needs to go 'double double' to tolerate it.
This second sentence is my usual rant aboot their donuts tastin' like crap cuz they use factory-produced products instead of bakin' them from scratch in house.
This third sentence is reserved for sumpin' aboot flatulence cuz I'm a busted record that way.

bloobeary: If Burger King wants to make some money during the pandemic, they should put all their stores on 24 hour operation the way McDonalds did. I switched to night shift specifically to avoid people, and McD's is the only place open after 2AM.


Yeah, let's keep all locations open all night when there are very few customers, surefire way to increase revenue...we should make you CEO of Restaurant Brands International!

/One local BK near me does so poorly, they close at 5PM on Mondays and 8PM the rest of the week, even on the weekends.

Nobody ever got into a fight over a Burger King sandwich.

Burger King is essentially a "zombie" franchise now. Nobody cares. They have nothing interesting on their menu, and their food isn't as good as the other burger places. Not really.

I expect them to nearly disappear in the next decade. The only 2 "big" burger places that will survive are Wendy's and McDonald's. There isn't room for any other big players in that market.

CSB: Among the businesses laid low by the pandemic in Ottawa was the Tim Hortons on King Edward at St. Patrick. Not the most prestigious address in the city, to put it mildly.

After the place shut down, the former franchisee posted a sign reading BURGLAR ALARM WILL OPERATE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 1. A suspiciously specific notice to aspiring looters, vandals and drug cookers.

Not that the owner of ghetto Timmies was bitter, I'm sure.

If they did, there'd be a lot more fried chicken scented logs.
