I know I've told the story here before about how when I worked at Burger King as a teenager every now and then we'd run out of burger meat and every single goddamn customer would make the same stupid joke, "but I thought this was Burger King?" and it would be the worst day ever.

We also sometimes ran out of buns, and had to server burgers on those long buns we use for chicken sandwiches or vice-versa and sometimes customers would lose their shit because HOW DARE WE?

Also I have never eaten at Popeye's and not regretted it within 30 minutes. I've been known to live-tweet my regret coming on.
