Tell Me True

2010-01-15 - 1:51 p.m.

A second post? Yes. I finally have an answer to a question that has plagued mankind for generations.


Firstly, go read the whole story. Then come back.


Back? Okay.

Recently the Hungry Man XXL Southern Fried Boneless Chicken meal went on sale and I bought one. It occurred to me that I STILL had never received a reply to my original question:

When the chicken is returned to the tray, should it be covered with the plastic wrap or left uncovered?

So I decided to try again. This time, I called the number on the package. After a few moments I got a LIVE HUMAN BEING named Johnny.

I asked the question and FINALLY got an answer - the chicken should be left uncovered.

I told Johnny all about my non-replies from "Lena Grant, Consumer Insights Representative"...and he burst out laughing. He told me he couldn't get into details, but he knew who I was talking about. My guess is that Lena Grant isn't too competent or else she's known for these kinds of non-answers.

Anyway, Johnny took some info from me and promised to send a coupon.

So this open ticket is now finally closed. And it only took five months.


Okay. Gonna have some Southern Fried Boneless Chicken.

Cooked uncovered.

Be seeing you.
