An Open Apology to the Chick-fil-A Seekonk Staff
Please allow this letter to serve as a formal apology for my family's conduct last night at your restaurant in Seekonk.
In particular, I need to talk about my wife's saucy behavior.
Until recently, no one in our family had ever visited a Chick-fil-A restaurant. A couple of months back, however, during a summer visit to Seekonk Grand Prix, we decided to try Chick-fil-A for the first time.
My kids got chicken nuggets and chicken tenders. What they really loved, though, was the Chick-fil-A sauce. The sauce was kept next to the ketchup, the honey BBQ sauce, the straws and napkins, so we grabbed a couple of extras and brought them home.
We live in Tri-Town, so the restaurant is not exactly conveniently located for our family. Since that day, however, whenever we get within a 15-minute radius of Seekonk, my kids start begging us to go to Chick-fil-A.
Last night, after a high school volleyball game at Seekonk High School, we took the opportunity to pay your restaurant a visit.
As soon as my wife started ordering, I knew it was going to take an embarrassing turn.
She ordered a chicken sandwich for herself – with extra Chick-fil-A sauce. Then nuggets for my daughter with extra Chick-fil-A sauce. Then, tenders for my son. You guessed it – extra sauce. She even forced me to order extra sauce with my spicy chicken sandwich. The cashier knew darn well I wasn't putting that sauce on my Buffalo chicken sandwich, but she played along, jamming a few more sauces into the shake container. Although she didn't show it, I'm sure she was pretending not to be annoyed.
While we were eating, she sent me up again to ask for more sauce. I was horrified.
Her plan is to bring the sauce home and use them on Purdue chicken nuggets. It's a shameful act, and I am not proud. Right now, that extra sauce is sitting in the kids' drawer in the kitchen. They have laid claim to them by writing their names on the containers.
Please tell me we're not the only pathetic family that does this.
With sincerest apologies,
The Rock Family
