Duped by a 16 year old at KFC drive-through

Lol got duped by a 16 year teen at KFC. Ordered 5 original recipe at drive thru. After paying they said they only had 3 left and offered 3 chicken tenders instead of the 2 original recipe chicken pieces I paid for.

Thinking 3 is better than 2 i agreed. After opening our KFC dinner box at home, I realised a tender has like a third the amount of chicken as original chicken. Hence, I got fooled into getting less than I paid for. Aint gonna happen next time, I will sharpen my KFC chicken negotiating skills for next time.

      Not entirely. This post serves as a stark warning to anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation. There's not much worse than coming home from a drive through order and finding the wrong pieces. I feel for you, OP.

    You should've put the chicken tenders on kitchen scales and uploaded a picture to Facebook and Twitter to show everyone how underweight they are.

    Tenders are better than original recipe anyway. You're paying for bone and not much else.

    •  

      Surely if I want to choose quantity over quality, KFC should oblige?

      I'll admit the tenders were tasty but I needed to eat a pack of chips afterwards as I was not full enough.

    •  

      last I looked most of the volume and weight of KFC chicken was the thick outside casing of fat-absorbed 'batter'

      like the old fish fingers - looked like all fish - but if you actually measured the size of the fish relative to the dimensions of the whole fish 'finger' the fish was like 30% of the fish finger (I forget - long time since i …)

      original recipe - gonna be a lotta bone - I'm a white meat guy misself - don't like knawing on bones - I'm not a dog - I'm more like a cat …

        Growing up, whenever I'd go to the fish markets with mum, I found myself always trying to find fingers on fish. What a (profanity) lie that turned out to be.

    Boy could not fulfil the original request and offered you an alternative with which you agreed. Seems hardly his fault you don't know what chicken tender looks like. #boyisinnocent

      But to answer your question, it is an educated guess. Theres a margin of error of plus or minus 1 year.

    No. Tenders is all meat.

  •  

    Are you saying you are 16 years old ? Cause you duped yourself.

  •  

    Cool story.

    But what did you think a 'chicken tender' was? A nicer piece of chicken you'd never come across before? Did you at any time wonder why were they so nice to offer you 3 pieces instead of 2?

    • +3 votes

      Way to go kicking me while Im feeling down on chicken.

      Did not realise the KFC tender would be so TINY. I placed my trust of chicken in Kfcs hands and they abused my trust.

      I think a 3:2 conversion was really poor value given my original order could not be fulfilled through no fault of my own.

      •  

        Was genuinely interested and being open minded. Sorry if it came across otherwise.

        It was a question not statement and being me I would've asked, so what's the difference between the 2. But I can understand if you're hungry for your chicken… logical choices can go out the window!

        I agree, now knowing what a chicken tender is (thanks to you) a 3-2 conversion isn't really fair. I'd have settled for a 2tenders for 1 piece. Though some may think a tender is twice as nice.

        On the bright side you still had 3 otherwise decent pieces of the chicken pieces?

        Wait so you got duped by a girl and a member of the opposite sex? If so, welcome to the real world, first of many lessons to come!

        • +1 vote

          Yep I got duped by the opposite sex.

          I dont think I can ever show my face at a KFC joint again without feeling heavy shame

          •  

            @AbsX: End of the day, it's easy to get duped by a friendly face and a smile. Be glad it was just a piece of chicken and not a scammer that's stolen your $1,500 gift cards. No shame in that unless you were the colonel himself.

            I use this to my advantage all the time - don't feel bad. I don't target certain traits, more just a try it anyway nothing personal on the other end. If you don't try you might not get.

            Staff was probably just trying to move the line on and not keep you waiting for another 10-15mins. Maybe they believed giving a substitute was a bonus that otherwise wasn't allowed as part of a package - who knows?

      •  

        I trusted that nice 16yo in a KFC uniform and they gave me less chicken than I thought I might get.

        OMG - HOW CAN I EVER TRUST ANYONE AGAIN !?!?

  •  

    Were you offered to wait until there was more product?

    That’s what usually happens.

    Maybe they had plenty of chicken but he just scammed you :/

    EDIT: why has this thread been reported?

    •  

      Nope no offer.

      •  

        That sux.

        It also sux that you paid before they told you that they couldn’t complete the order.

        In hindsight you could have done lots of things different eg. Offering to wait.

        Those 16 year old boys, I suppose, can seem pretty intimidatingly ; really?

      Never thought of it this way.

      But now I have less money for my private health extras plan to claim on a weight loss regime.

    •  

      Using the same logic, OP was actually best told to f-off from the start. Saved dollars and future health.

  •  

    yeah unfortunately they hire really young workers. Ask to have the small stuff in a second box so you can count them. Ordered the streetwise meal once and seemed short on a few things. Probably too lazy to make more of the missing item versus any larger conspiracy.

  •  

    Yeah to me, 3 tenders wouldn't make up for 2 pieces of chicken, I'd be okay (full wise) eating 2 pieces of the original recipe, but I'd demolish 3 tenders like it was nothing. I think the 2 pieces usually have a big one (or two?) which to me is bigger then the two tenders. This would definitely be a no thanks I'll wait/refund plz for me.

          Neither,

          Im just a hungry adult male that wanted to share a meal with my fiancee because we could smell KFC chicken in the carpark before doing grocery shopping.

    Tenders are better anyway, think about it, you probably would've gotten the rubbish bits that are mostly bone

  • +2 votes

    In terms of monetary value (according to their online menu):
    2 pieces of Original Recipe = $6.00
    3 Tenders = $6.95

    You came out ahead by $0.95.

      Haha i was already a 10 minute drive away when I realised I got duped. I decided it wasn't worth the effort to drive back to demand a few more tenders and thought it was a better idea to moan about it on ozbargain instead.

      The age is an educated guess based on looks and so I could come up with a punchy headline for this thread.

    i hate when you get 3 wings in a 5 piece box.
    a wing is not a piece of chicken when the bone to meat ration is more.
    better to ask for the burger breast fillets when the run out of pieces.

    Last week KFC incorrectly packed my order and gave me 10 less wicked wings than I ordered. When I went back to pick it up, the manager offered 4 chocolate mousse as compensation for the trouble. Overall pretty happy even though took up an extra 30 minutes.

    Ex KFC manager here. I probably would've given you 4 tenders. Next time ask for 2 burger fillets instead.
