    Hit my local Popeyes especially today there they got the Tuesday special for $1.29 for a leg & thigh fried chicken but when I placed two orders this evening, the lady packed in 3 legs and a thigh and told me if I don't mind about that. Of course I do mind!! that is ripoff!! so I said I can wait.. and she said it is gonna be about 4 minutes...

    So to keep the story short, there was another customer who placed his order way way earlier than I did and he was being offered that ripoff deal but he chose to wait... I bet he waited at least 10 minutes already.. Hence after a few more minutes, I told them I wanted a refund instead of who-know-what-the-crew-is-cooking-behind-the-counter...

    I just felt really bad with this kind of service... since it is Tuesday and as always popeyes should prepare alot of equal shares of Legs and Thighs... but they don't do that... cuz' they are indeed trying to rip people off...

    P.S. this popeyes location is at Woodside road, Redwood city, California. I was really mad cuz' they must have done ripping me and many customers off and wasted my time...

    They weren't trying to rip you off. There was obviously a shortage of chicken thighs.

    Question: Why do you seem to care so much about a fucking piece of chicken?

    I hope you spent your refund at the local strip club. Plenty more legs and thighs there - breasts, too.

    Tonight at 10pm I ordered 4 apple pies at mcdonalds, and they said they didn't have any, and it would take 10 minutes to make new ones. I'm going back there with my shotgun. Rarrr!

    So they ripped you off because you had to wait for more chicken to cook... You probably don't handle waiting in line real well, do you?

    Perhaps if it happens again you can get their recipe in compensation?

    and its people with this lack of understanding why working at retail or fast food sucks royal assage, trust me, i've done both (currently working retail). They didn't try to rip you off, they were trying to make you happy and give an alternative so you wouldn't have to wait

    I always make sure to be extra nice to people who work these jobs, i know how it is, it is living hell

    Its not just retail or working in restaurants (regardless of type) that suck. Its the service industry in its entirety. You know there's always going to be a lot of people with the "me me me" mentality, forever stuck with this false sense of entitlement.

    But....at times, I've found that if people are willing to listen and work with you, you can actually educate them with how things are, how they work, etc and actually be able to reach an amicable resolution. Doesn't always happen though.
