Have you heard of em? Asking in case they’re a regional thing. Anyway …
I do a call-in. As in call-in a to-go order.
Clerk: Thank you for calling WingStop! Home of the wing experts.
Me: Hi, I’d like to place an order for carry-out.
Clerk: Ma’am before you start we’re out of the classic wings. We only have boneless.
Me: That’s OK, I want the 16 piece boneless wing strips family pack
Order taken, to be ready in 18 minutes. Off I go. I get there and enter, then …
Clerk: How may I help you?
Me: Call in order for J-Dub.
Clerk (calling to his manager): Miss, she’s here.
Me: (thought bubble only) This can’t be good.
Manager: I’m so sorry, he didn’t get your phone number or we would have called you. We do have boneless wings but we are out of the strips. Do you want the wings?
Me: What’s the difference?
Manager: two wings make one strip, we’ll give you 32 wings. The fries and rolls will be no charge.
Me: Sounds good, I’ll take that.
The usual cost for 30 piece boneless wing family pack is $31.99 plus tax. And don’t you know I used my 15% off discount card good until August 2018 as well. Total cost $17.28. All thanks to free fries and rolls. No wonder they are out of stuff, they’re giving it away.
As always, more to come.
