What happened as I got closer to the Overland Park, KS location was surprising, even to me. I was driving on a 6 lane road when traffic came to a stop. After a 10 minute crawl, I realized what the problem was-a flock of people driving to CFA for lunch. I pulled out of that lane, did a (legal) u-turn and took a different route up another 4 lane street. The cars were lined up even further away. Finally, I chose a little used “back road” to try and get to a parking lot about 1/2 mile away and walk. I could see the Chick-fil-a but there were scores of people parking their cars on mediums and in every parking lot surrounding the store.
It looked like Woodstock-or maybe “Chickenstock”.
All this was well before noon. I thought about calling in my order for tonight-say around 9pm when the line might be a bit more reasonable, but I am guessing the other chicken lovin’ “traditional one opposite gender spouse per customer” types will be lined up then too. This is beef country so the idea of a chicken chain doing what I think just might turn out to be their best one day volume is quite a site.
I heard that some protestors were scheduled to show up, but unless they camped out all night, they probably can’t even get close. Probably better. At 103 degrees out there today, they’d end up more like roasted chicken.
