I always enjoyed taking the bus to work years ago, except in the winter. Every time it snowed, others would leave their cars at home and take the bus, making it impossible for the regular riders to even get on that day. I ended up needing to have Mrs Aks drive me to a bus stop a few miles before my normal location where I'd catch it, just to get on that day.

That must've been frustrating ... Fortunately, we have the opposite phenomenon whereas folks find alternative means of commuting and the buses are less crowded. My issue with mass transit in winter is just the agonizing wait out in the cold. Which reminds me ... I'm not looking forward to tomorrow morning's 2.5 hour commute via 2 buses and 2 trains

Just bought a bag of nuts last night and noticed the packaging changed to one that is a ziplock bag. Nice, I thought. Now I won't have to take the time to transfer contents to one of those bags. So, I opened the bag very carefully but what happened... a small area of the bag tore from the resealable zip part. So much for that! Cheap bag If I want to keep them fresh, looks like I'm going to have to put these in another resealable bag after all.

@AKS - I'm a bit miffed hearing about your situation. I'm not sure I understand why people start a franchise and say they're not going to accept any of that particular company's coupons/gift cards or they pick and choose what they'll accept and what they won't. If I was the head honcho and people wanted to start a franchise in their area, I'd say that they would have to abide by the same offers and gift cards as all the others, if they don't like it, they can start up their own chicken restaurant but NOT under the KfC name. They can do their own "specials" then.

Unhappy Thanks for nothing!

http://www.city-data.com/forum/23160749-post4752.html

I donít want to sound like Iím complaining however it pís me off that I had to go through a number of phone calls to KFC corporate offices to get a problem resolved only to find that this morning Mrs Aks got a phone call back from them apologizing for the situation and that they would have a check sent to me within the next ten to fifteen days. Then this afternoon in the mail I received a check from them. {{{WTF}}}

Again, Iím happy to get the money back but with all of the phone calls and computer documentation no one had indicated that they cut a check and it was already mailed. Yeah,, here I am talking to their customer service department again and again without their even knowing that or saying that ďa check was printed and sent to you four or five days agoĒ !

My last phone calls were to their corporate CEO and president because no one in the lower offices working directly with the customers could provide any service. On Monday when I last spoke with their corporate office they simply could have said the check is in the mail you should have it by the end of the week.

Thanks KFC for the ďrefundĒ check to replace the ďunusableĒ gift card. However with all of the poor service from the KFC franchise store to the corporate office over the past month or so I will (NEVER) do business with you.

Iíll spend the $20 bucks at Churchís Chicken in town!
