All that was missing was the wine and candles.
We did our stint for the cause this evening, Mr. G and I went to Chick-fil-A for the first time and was gratified to see so many others who are willing to stand up for what they believe in in this little podunk town of 8100. Much to our surprise, the restaurant was very crowded, both at the drive-thru and at the door for walk-ins. The line of cars behind us were backed up beyond the traffic light on this 4 lane highway and the line for inside dining went back beyond the end of the building. There were so many people there that they had to park their cars in the Home Depot lot behind Chick-fil-A.
We waited an hour for service, but didn’t mind. As we waited, we got to talk to other patrons as they walked out with their food. The servers were very friendly and acted like they were glad we came to have our dinner with them. We had most delicious chicken sandwiches with fries (#2) and peach milkshakes. The crowds were well mannered and polite. And people driving by, honked their horns in support of the “buycott.”
I don’t know why the gay community didn’t know that the owners were Christian since the sign clearly states “closed on Sundays” and it’s the only fast food chain that is. I also noticed that it was the only business in that area that was flying the American flag until we rounded the back and noticed that Home Depot also had one on their roof. McDonald’s were not flying one, neither were KFC, Burger King, Fatz or 3 mini malls.
