Since I leave right after school, I usually stop for dinner on the way. There is a little town in South Carolina also named Blacksburg, so in the past, I saw it fitting to stop there. There is a gas station/Wendy's combination place, and I thought, what better place to stop than I place I can get gas as well as my favorite fast food?
Well, when I stopped there Labor Day weekend, I waited for about 10 minutes to get 5 chicken nuggets and fries. Some of the workers were just standing there for the majority of the time I waited, so I was a little frustrated. It doesn't take more than a minute to grab the nuggets and fries from their little sections under the heat lamp! (The more I think about that sentence, the more it makes me want to give up fast food all together.)
Two weeks later as I made my way for the second home game, I decided to go through the drive-through this time and get gas afterward. The drive-through line only took about 7 minutes this time, but the lady could not remember that I had ordered a Coke to drink. Every time she opened the window, she would ask me what drink I ordered. I get my food and then headed over to the gas pumps. Every single pump was filled, so I picked the closest pump and waited. Unfortunately, I picked the largest truck that took forever to fill up. Lanes would open, I would try to maneuver to them, but someone would beat me there. After about 5-8 minutes of waiting on a gas pump, I finally found an open pump and got my gas. Thank goodness I found another pump, because the original lane I was waiting on freed up as I was driving away.
After these two straight trips of sub-par experiences, I decided I'd try to stop at a different Wendy's this time. I stopped just north of Charlotte at a Wendy's and walked in. I had a very quick experience at this Wendy's and left happily with my food. I got back on the interstate before realizing that there were only 4 nuggets in my 5-piece! I decided this was Wendy's third strike, and they are out! I've decided to boycott Wendy's for a little while to cool off and hopefully have an enjoyable dining experience.
