‘What The Cluck!’ – KFC Stores Close After Running Out Of Chicken
When you get a craving for the Colonel's famous chicken, it's hard to ignore those urges. Eventually you give in, hustle on down to your nearest KFC and try your hardest not to let your stomach do the talking when you order.
But imagine, just imagine the emotions you'd go through if you rocked up to said eatery and find out that they had run out of chicken.
Well, that's exactly what happened after a delivery 'hiccup' plagued stores around the UK. People rushed to social media in their droves to express outrage, disappointment and downright sadness that they couldn't get their hands on the finger lickin' good stuff.
The fast food restaurant replied to as many angry customers as possible, telling one person: "We deliver our chicken fresh to our restaurants and have had hiccups with delivery today. We're very sorry but the Colonel is working on getting this fixed."
But it must've been hard to keep on top of all the messages.
"KFC is closed because they ran out of chicken which I will take as the first sign of the end of the world," wrote one exasperated and hungry person.
Another user said: "So I wait in this long ass KFC drive tho line to get to the window to get my food and the manager tell me they ran out of chicken. Why the fuck weren't y'all prepared for this?!!!"
That doesn't compare to this person's experience, writing on Twitter: "OMG I have just walked in the rain for 20 minutes because I wanted a Zinger Tower Burger.
"I get there and to my disgust they are closed because they ran out of CHICKEN. I am appalled and shocked that Kentucky Fried Chicken have ran out of CHICKEN."
It's not surprising to see so many messages because at the end of the day KFC is bloody delicious and everyone knows that when you're told you can't have something, that only makes you want it more.
Oprah caused people to head to stores around America when she promoted a deal that got you a meal for free. Hungry customers printed off the required coupon, but some were turned away from specific stores who weren't partaking in the promotion.
Naturally, they were pretty gutted to find out they either had to pay for their delicious chicken or walk away empty handed.
Give us the chicken, KFC!
