I love Chick Fil-A. It is about the only fast food chain I patronize. (Five Guys isn't fast food, is it?)
So no complaints about the food, but that doesn't mean I don't have complaints. Their motto (or slogan or whatever you call it) "We didn't invent the chicken, just the chicken sandwich" bothers me in several ways. First I don't believe it. It's been three hundred years since the Earl of Sandwich gave the two-slice comestible its current title, and of course people have been eating sandwiches for thousands of years before that, they just didn't know what to call it. Does it really seem likely that in all that time nobody thought to put a piece of chicken between two pieces of bread until some Georgia cracker in 1946?
And second, it's kind of patronizing, is it not? Do they think we really might believe that Chick Fil-A invented chickens? I mean, come on, chickens have been around for longer even than sandwiches. That is not an urban legend that is crying out to be debunked. "Oh, you poor lunkhead customers of ours, we did not invent chickens."
And okay, even if he did invent the chicken sandwich, there's a saying on the wall of most Chick Fil-A's that just makes me shake my head every time I see it:
One more complaint. I always know when it's Sunday even without any other clues cuz that';s the day I crave Chick- Fil-A. And it's the day they're closed. I understand the Sabbath day stuff, but can't we compromise? Have some Jews or Muslims or atheist teenagers run the place on Sunday I mean, food is essential to life on Sunday too, is it not?
