I don't want you to think that all I do is complain. So today, I'll share something I like. I really like it when companies come up with the perfect tag line. "What?" you might be thinking, but let me explain.
Today's perfect tag line: "There's fast food, and then there's KFC."
Why is this so perfect? Because even though KFC dumped this tag line years ago, I am never able to go to a KFC without thinking, "There's fast food, and then there's KFC." Today was no different.
I went to KFC tonight to get dinner for my husband and me. I pull into the drive-thru at 7:36 p.m. There is one care in front of me. My husband had texted me his order and I realize I have a question. I text him quickly, hoping he'll respond before I have to order. He texts me back. I wait. I text him back. He texts me again. I wait.... another 3 minutes before I even got to pull up and to the speaker. Hmmm. Guess I was worried about nothing.
I pull up. I'm ready to order. Instead I waited. Then I placed my order. I pulled up behind the one car in front of me at the window. I waited. I pull up. I pay. I wait. And wait.
"Ma'aam, we don't have enough green beans left for your order. Can I get you something else?" And how is it that you didn't realize this when I was ordering? Whatever. Give me mashed potatoes.
I wait some more.
They hand me my food at 7:50. 14 minutes start to finish. Explain this to me. It's not like they had to kill the chicken. They pretty much just had to put the already cooked and sitting under a heat lamp chicken into a box.
So, my friends, I say again, there is fast food, and then there's KFC.
