I love Chick-Fil-A. I’ll admit it. My favorite is the #5: a 12 piece nugget with waffle fries, a half & half tea, and lots of honey mustard. And of course, I ALWAYS want Chick-Fil-A on Sundays. It never fails.
I saw this video, and was slightly irritated by it. I don’t care if people don’t like Chick-Fil-A (that just means more for me), and I know they aren’t going out of business any time soon, because they’re ALWAYS busy. I can go there at 9pm on a Wednesday and any location I go to is jamming out some chicken.
Here’s my issue: there are a couple of comments and attitudes in the video that I just don’t understand.
First, the dude. The one guy in the video seems to not like the sandwich just because Chick-Fil-A is “trendy” and he doesn’t want to like it. Can you say true Hipster? I think he’s just trying to be difficult. Maybe he really does dislike the sandwich, but his attitude just screams “I don’t want to like this but I do!” Just admit it dude: it’s delicious. No one will judge you for liking the sandwich.
Secondly, the soggy McDonald’s fry girl. I also love McDonald’s fries… it must be my Irish heritage. I just want potatoes all the time. My favorite on-the-go snack is McD’s fries and a big fountain Coke. But the thing that made me do a double-take was when she says that Chick-Fil-A’s waffle fries are “too potato-y.” Ex-squeeze me? What did you expect them to be? Thin air? Are McD’s fries NOT potato-y? Because that’s pretty much all I’m asking for from a french fry: potato flavor.
Anyway, I’m glad that some of the people in the video understand the amazingness that is Chick-Fil-A. Now they’ll crave it every Sunday just like the rest of us addicts.
