A Regular

So I have a million pictures to show you all. I have Easter pictures, girls night pictures, my brother in laws birthday party pictures...and let's be honest, it sorta getting a little late for Easter pictures, but I don't care. I have a ton of picture posts and I WILL be writing them. Just not tonight. Tonight I am not up for loading and organizing a ton of pictures. I am only in the mood for easy words. So, let me tell you what happened to me this morning. Then I will post the pictures later this weekend.

The thing you first must know for this story is that chic-fil-a has the best breakfast burrito ever. Seriously. They put their fried chicken in it, and it has these grilled onions and peppers... You all, it's heaven. The second thing you need to know is that there is a chic-fil-a right across the street from my work. So close and so delicious. A dangerous combination. So, OBVIOUSLY I eat chic-fil-a a lot for breakfast. I basically get it every Friday. It's a treat for making it to the end of the work week, plus that's the day my lab partner has off work. He is more of a healthy eater than me, so I try to hide my burrito addiction from him as much as possible.

So this morning I went to get my heaven burrito. I get in the drive threw lane and patiently wait my turn. I order then pull up to the window. It's there that I realize I have a problem. I have no wallet. No cash, no debit card, no NOTHING. So I panic. I try to find a way to just pull out of the line but I am blocked in. I roll my window down in shame. Our conversation went like this:

me: I have no money. I am SO SO sorry. I can run to work and get some money and come back....I suck.

Chic-fil-a worker: Oh it's okay Ms. Biogirl!! (except he used my actual last name...from MEMORY...and he said it correctly which us just INSANE!). You are a REGULAR!! *gives me the biggest warmest smile ever* Just pay for it next time you are here! * hands me my non-paid for food and waves goodbye*

It was so nice. So so nice! But the thing is... I am a little horrified that I eat at chic-fil-a SO MUCH that they actually know my name and consider me "a regular". I MAY need to rethink my Friday reward. But not next week. I mean, I gotta pay them back!


  1. Oh but that is nice - I wouldn't worry too much!! My aunt used to go to Starbucks every morning for coffee and they knew her so well they would have her drink ready before she even asked...they even gave her the odd one for free (amazing, huh?) The best part was, she didn't even know what kind of coffee she was drinking (which is strange, because she is such a snob when it comes to coffee) and so, if a new assistant was serving and asked her which coffee she wanted, she'd have to ask for one of the guys that knew her to tell them which to make!! Now that was worrying hehe

  2. That is so awesome! Chick-Fil-A has very good customer service. The employees are always so polite. They really whip 'em into shape there. I notice a hugs difference between the way I'm treated at Chick-Fil-A and the way I'm treated everywhere else.

  3. Haha!! That is great! Think of it this way...Chick-Fil-A has chicken and chicken=healthy! Stay positive! =)

  4. I can't conceive of a fast food place giving you your food for free because you forgot your wallet. Clearly I live in L.A. and you live in Kentucky. What a difference a location makes. Never happen here, I'm sure of it.
