Tried the Mcdonald's spicy chicken since I was right next to one OTW back to work.

Horrible, worse than everyone else IMO.

Building the wall on the wrong border. :s00ls:

It makes you wonder!

No fried chicken in Canada heh??

I guess not. She also was talking about how her friends here were eating cheese curds. And how off putting that was. Yet all she talked anout was Poutine. Which is fries with cheese curds on it. How does that make any sense?!

Sometimes I'm truly amazed that you were qualified and hired to work with literal rocket/quantum scientists... da fuq you think it was gonna be like???

Some of the brightest people I know are also idiots. It's kind of amazing in a great way. :rofl:

This is now the second time (in a row) that the chicken has been absolutely trash. First time was insanely dry nuggets and today, it was a hard bunned, stringy chicken sandwich. RIP Popeyes.

I don’t eat much fast food, maybe once every 2 weeks if that. But everywhere I’ve been the last few months has been trash. Understaffed and nobody giving a fuck?

Thats very likely it.

However, in a weird turn of events, Taco Bell has actually been on point and I've found myself going semi more often compared to maybe a handful of times a year.

Come to think of it last three meals have been bad there at different locations. Even the biscuits were dry, and not their usual buttery greasy soft goodness.

I'm about done with Popeye's. Ordered for delivery about a month ago on their website. Nothing special, just a tenders meal. It was about 2 hours before they closed. They use DoorDash for deliveries. I tracked the order...after a half hour or so a driver was assigned and drove to the restaurant. He sat in the drive through line for 30 minutes before texting me that he was canceling the order because Popeye's couldn't fill the order.

A few days later I still had a craving so I hit the drive through and ordered the same thing. Took it home and about a couple hours later started feeling queasy. Shit my brains out. Next day, same thing. Was actually late for work because I almost shit myself walking out to my car to go to work. Had to run inside all stiff-legged. It was so bad I had to take another shower.

Last night decided to give them one last chance. Ordered the same thing for delivery, again off their website. Over the next 3+ hours my order was assigned to a dozen different drivers, some of them getting assigned my order a few times. Apparently they weren't open, but instead of canceling my order the drivers just kept rejecting it, causing it to be reassigned to someone else. An hour after I ordered, one of the drivers texted me and said they were closed. Again, instead of canceling the order it was just reassigned.

I emailed Popeye's and told them what happened. After 15 minutes I got a reply that my order was still coming, and for my trouble I they were crediting my $3 off my next order. I then received a call from a driver who said they were closed and I needed to cancel the order. There was no way for me to cancel it - I'd already looked.

The order obviously never came. It's partially Door Dash's fault for not canceling the order, but ultimately it falls on Popeye's.

TLDR - Fuck Popeye's.
