To tide us over…

My appetite has not been very good ever since I have not been feeling too well especially when I cannot eat this and cannot eat that. Besides, if I have had something substantial for brunch or lunch, I would feel so full the rest of the day and would not be able to eat much come dinnertime.

That was why last Sunday, since we were planning to go out for dinner to celebrate my girl’s birthday, I was saving my tummy space and only had two half-boiled/cooked eggs in the morning, that was all.

The ladies in the house, on the other hand, were quite happy to buy some stuff for lunch from Colonel Sanders…

…at the mall not far from our house.

I drove my missus over and waited patiently in the car while she went to buy. She sure took a mighty long time because according to her, they had a new girl manning the counter and she seemed to be at a loss as to what she was supposed to do.

I think my missus bought two sets of whatever they had on promotion and this was one of them…

She got these two pieces of fried chicken, barbecue flavour…

lav

…in one box and another piece, the drumstick, in another box with the two tubs of mashed potatoes…

Looking at the ad, there should be one with the potatoes and there should be coleslaw in the other, instead of two of the same…

…and because there were two per set, there were four altogether!!!

My girl wanted six of their crispy cheesy fingers but my missus was told that they were out of stock. I browsed through their Facebook page and I saw a whole lot of comments from disgruntled customers – obviously, they are always running out of this and that these days. Probably that was why there wasn’t any coleslaw.

Much to our surprise, despite what the girl said, there were two crispy cheesy fingers…

…in one of the sets. Don’t ask me where those came from and why they were available – I really have no idea whatsoever what was going on.

There was also a zinger burger…

…and two complimentary drinks for the two ladies to enjoy and to tide them over till dinnertime.

There was supposed to be something from Lays as well, a pack of chips, but obviously, that was out of stock and unavailable too and no, there was no special discount or something else given as a replacement! I saw in one of their ads a clause that said, “Sementara masih ada stock!” (While stocks last!) Luckily I was not the one who went to buy – I most certainly would have made a scene on the spot! I imagine them telling every customer that they have run out of stock and at the end of the day, they will take all the packets home to enjoy while watching their favourite movie on Netflix!

Needless to say, the two sets did not come cheap. According to my missus, she had to pay around RM39.00 altogether, around RM20 per head!
