KFC condiment kerfuffle

A 26-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday night by police in Surprise, Arizona, after she allegedly tried to back over a KFC employee with her car because her meal was served sans condiments.

Surprise police said the woman was at the drive-through of a KFC when the argument began because employees failed to provide condiments with her meal.

She entered the KFC and had a verbal exchange with an employee about 7 p.m. Employees ordered the woman to leave the building and a KFC employee followed her out of the building and stood behind her vehicle to get a license plate number.

That’s when she apparently decided to put the car in reverse. And then she did it again.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.

Arby’s condiments and insects

Evan Mitchell, another ex-pat Canadian living in Manhattan (Kansas) writes that last night, he and the wife had a biological urge …  for something cold (Kansas is humid in the summer).

Our house is within walking distance of Arby’s, and with their current “happier-hour” promotion (50% off all drinks), we couldn’t resist. After receiving our shakes, we needed straws which where located by the condiment stand. It was at this time that we almost barfed and our perceived hour of happiness was no longer happy.

Arby’s has a killer condiment stand. For no extra cost, one could triple pickle their roast beef melt; a true American deal that doesn’t exist in Canada. Although I’m a fan of sharing such luxuries with others, part of the ‘go green’ and don’t waste philosophy, I limit that selection to members of the human race; that means no bugs. The containers of pickles, peppers, onions, lettuce, olives, etc., were all occupied by little feasting winged insects. Although eating from a dish that has been uncovered and exposed to however many other bodily fluids (and stuff) in a day is gross, I was still disgusted and a little mortified by the sight.

Arby’s, that was gross.
