    It's to acclimatise us to the coming Mogglodyte Hard Brexit.

    I know the Brexit is it going to happen is quite a fighty thread, so I feel that I should point out that was a (poor) joke.

    as i understand it KFC switched delivery firms to DHL, hoping to save a few quid and causing 250 redundancies in the process, DHL then left all the chicken at a neighbours house but didn't specify which one on the 'sorry we missed you' card and now all their neighbours are just laughing at them and claiming to know nothing about it.

    The GMB statement managed to include a few...err...zingers:

    "We tried to warn KFC this decision would have consequences – well now the chickens are coming home to roost.

    Bidvest are specialists… DHL are scratching around for any work they can get, and undercut them.

    It’s an absolute cock up. KFC are left with hundreds of restaurants closed while DHL try and run the whole operation out of one distribution centre – where conditions are an utter shambles.

    Three weeks ago KFC knew they had made a terrible mistake, but by then it was too late.

    KFC’s bird-brained decision has caused untold misery to customers, to Bidvest workers and restaurant staff who are not being paid.

    Now they’ve been left with egg on their face."

    I thought there were companies that specialised in delivering food to commercial customers? I guess employing companies who have been in the business for decades wasn't cheapskate enough.

    Is there a hierarchy of fast food joints, then?

    I assumed they were much of a muchness, possibly with Pizza Hut on a slightly higher level.

    Burger King and KFC are both towards the more fancy end of fast food joints. More usually if I want something fatty, greasy and salty for dinner I'll go to the local chicken shop which is cheaper.

    KFC shops without chicken, you couldn't make it up, it's such a major fuck up, that I just find it funny as fuck.

    * with the exception to those made redundant.

    There are, they used one before changing to DHL, however DHL has plenty of experience in logistics, so it beggars belief they have cocked-up so badly.

    I think that Pizza Express ranks higher than Pizza Hut.
    BurgerKing ranks higher than McDonalds
    And in both cases the former is better than the latter
    That's how it works innit,

    Pizza express is a jazz venue, not a fast food joint.

    You can’t call a £12 main fast food!

    Pizza Express is not a jazz joint it has jazz in it's Soho branch and more eclectic stuff at the Camdem venue but it's got 90 outlets in London
    I don't think I changed the thread from chicken to burger or pizza

    they have experience in making money out of logistics by sweating and casualising the workforce and running everything as cheap as poss. Thats why the customer 'experience' of DHL is oft a poor one. As the man from the union said, Bidvest are specialists. Fuck, brake brothers are specialists. Might as well have hired parcelforce here for all the good its done

    KFC is about the only one I eat these days, mrs quoad'll be delighted to learn a second one has recently opened in Guildford. But this penny-pinching that has resulted in so many redundancies is making me feel as sick about them as what I do when I shove a McD in my face, so maybe time to knock them on the head too.

    DHL have plenty of experience of being shit. They have a terrible rep in the industry.
