Two weeks in a row I've gone to KFC and both times told "we are out of chicken". Really? I thought that was what they sold! Guess KFC stands for Kan't Find Chicken (no kids that's not how you spell can't)

Want something special ordered - even something as simple as "more dark meat then white"? Too bad! They won't promise anything, and that's the exact phrase they'll use - not a firm 'yes' or 'no', but a 'we can't promise anything'. Want to call ahead in order to try special ordering that way, giving them plenty of warning? Too bad! Their answering machine will likely pick up, go through a long spiel about how they are happy to serve you (spoken by a woman who sounds like she's got plans with a bottle of wine and a bottle of sleeping pills as soon as she finishes this last, arduous task in her life - I kid you not, never heard a more depressed sounding message). At the very end of the spiel, they kindly add the reminder that their machine does not take messages. Assuming you are lucky enough to get through, even calling several hours ahead gets you the same "we can't promise anything." Worse, they actually sound *irritated* about having to take your order. I'm starting to believe that the reality is that this restaurant is filled with poor souls who cannot tell the difference between dark meat and white. I picture them blindly snatching at a jumble of frozen meat, casting it into the fryer with a desperate prayer to the gods of fast food that there's a decent mix of both in there.

Anyway, all sarcasm aside - the odd time I have ordered food from there the chicken has been okay, but the fries are usually tepid and greasy (yes, I know - I mean soggy with grease) and the gravy is thin and flavorless. In other words, after a few attempts at trying this place out, I have given up on it.
