    That was a wonderful customer service story! Really, thanks for sharing. You should start a blog, I would so subscribe to it as I have yet to read insights as deep and informative as yours.

    I loves me a Whopper, but they have, like, eight-billion grams of fat.

    On topic, write a letter (and use spellcheck). Studies say snail-mail letters of complaint are much more effective than calls or emails. You might get some free Whopper coupons out of it, which you can forward to KA and myself.

    Very true.

    It shows that you took the time to write it, put it in an envelope, address it, apply postage to it and drop it in a mailbox....this shows that you mean business.

    Like Mr. Jiggles said, it takes little time to email or call....really no effort involved.

    I was once sleeping with some guys girlfriend and when he found out he sent me a letter of complaint. It was very well written, not rude, addressed the problem in a very civil manner. Needless to say I was scared for my life and ceased sleeping with his girl, as I knew he meant business when he used his office's stationary and those stickers with the address on the envelope that you can get when you sign up for a years subscription to Reader's Digest.

    I went to a Burger King for the first time in probably 4 or 5 months last week because I had a sudden Whopper craving. It was actually really crummy and no way near as good as I remembered.

    Anyway, the points is always send complaints by post to the company. You'll almost always get a positive outcome that way. It can also be a great way to get free stuff.

    Screw Whoppers. Give me a double quarter pounder, or a Wendy's triple cheeseburger any day.

    Seriously, what happened to Burger King? They used to be pretty good. Now they're awful.

    I'm fairly sure all Kids Meal toys are advertised as 'While supplies last.' In your area, they apparently did not last. My local BK couldn't keep 'em in stock, either.

    Complaints to fast food places ALWAYS work.

    We went to Kentucky Fried a couple weeks back because my wife was craving the taters. We ordered large taters and gravy and I ordered a one of those fancy grilled chicken sandwich things they have. Her stuff was ready immediately but we were told it would be ten more minutes for the sandwich so we pulled around and parked. Ten minutes go by and the kid comes to tell us that it'll be another ten minutes. Whatever. Fast food hasn't been "fast" food in a long time so we just shrugged. Fifteen minutes later I went in to find that the entire staff save one person was skating on the soapy floor in the kitchen. I come to the register, ask when I'm getting my sandwich and the kid runs to the back. The manager comes out and says, "It'll be about fifteen more minutes. We haven't started your sandwich yet."

    I asked for my money back.

    You know who we complained to about it? No one. I learned a long time ago that if you want to have the right to complain, you don't go to a fast food place. It was our own fault for expecting the monkeys working there to be able to finish an order in less than a half hour.

    Your complaint will mean precisely nothing.

    I had the exact same experience. I hadn't had any fast food in months, and they opened a Burger King near where I was working. It was the only fast food restaurant anywhere nearby, so it was this big deal, with huge lines and everything.

    I broke down and bought a Whopper. That was my first mistake. Made it about halfway through and couldn't stand the thought of another bite. I hate wasting food, so I tried to start in on it again in a hour or so. That was my second mistake.

    I ended up with some serious stomach distress and ended up stuck in a Porta-potty for a freakin' hour.

    I eat fast food for breakfast one weekend a month now as a convenient treat, but other than that, I don't go anywhere near those places anymore.
