The Popeyes Rooster Sandwich Is Again
Yesterday marked the return of the much-hyped Popeyes rooster sandwich, and other people promptly misplaced their marbles. Although I perceive what it’s prefer to be excited a few once-scarce meals merchandise (good day, Taco Bell fries), I’m urging—nay, pleading—with everybody to please relax.
The sandwich, which was pointedly re-released on a Sunday, promptly caused a bit of mayhem. According to CNN (and the sandwich-seekers of Twitter), drive-through lines “stretched into the streets,” and I’ve seen a number of movies on-line of individuals appearing very inappropriately in direction of the employees. I perceive it’s a scrumptious sandwich, however there isn’t any situation the place yelling at Popeyes workers (or any quick meals employee) is a suitable transfer. Even for those who wait hours in a line, solely to search out they bought the final sandwich to the particular person in entrance of you, even when they appear to be shifting very slowly, even when they overlook your pickles—none of those cases warrant you (an grownup) to yell at a restaurant employee over a sandwich. Even with the promised extra workers (of two folks per restaurant), the virality of the sandwich meant its return was by no means going to be simple on the employees, and I wouldn’t be shocked if a few of them are nonetheless recovering from the primary go-around. If lengthy traces ship you right into a rage, perhaps keep away from the chain till issues die down, or make your individual rattling sandwich.
