At the beginning of August of 2010, I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to surprise my husband so I asked him to meet me for lunch (at Chick-fil-A of course). This wasn't uncommon so he wasn't suspicious at all. I got three tests that came back positive and I took a picture of all three on my phone. As soon as we sat down for lunch, I sent him a txt with the picture in it. The picture shows... read more >
My baby girl, Joy, was on the floor one day just after we had picked up some Chick-fil-A. She was so excited about the bag of food that she managed to get up on all fours and start crawling toward the bag--for the first time! We laughed so hard that her first time crawling was because of Chick-fil-A. What can I say; the girl's got good taste. Moral of the story? If you are worried about your chil... read more >
On August 27, 2012 I was riding my road bike down Call Street. While crossing the intersection at chapel a car hit me. I flew across the hood and landed face first on the other side of the intersection. I was not wearing a helmet and probably was going about 20 miles. Obviously not a great situation for any person to be in, especially on the first day of classes. But while I was lying on the g... read more >
My dog became overcome from the heat on our walk to a gas station recently. I had run out of gas and had to walk with her versus leaving her on the bus. I could see signs that she was dehydrated as she was crying out of both eyes. I walked up to the drive-thru and asked for a cup of ice water and they gladly passed the cup out of the window. I sat down with her in the shaded wet grass for at least... read more >
I would like to inform you that I recently had the most amazing experience happen to me. Until today I didn't know that people such as the employees in my Chick-fil-A story still existed on this earth.
Today I received a card from Chick-fil-A in Avondale, AZ. It read, "Brandi Nicole S., We are just letting you know we found your driver's license in our parking lot and since we had no phone numbe... read more >
We go visit my Gramma once a week and her favorite thing to do is go get chicken sandwiches and it’s become a tradition to go to Chick-fil-A. Last week as we sat and ate I realized how much I appreciated this special spot for our memories. Even though it’s the most crowded spot at lunchtime, there is always a clean seat, fresh flowers on the tables, the most polite employees, delicious food and a ... read more >
Two years ago on August 20th, 2010, my family received the devastating news that our son/brother, 19 year old LCpl. Cody S. Childers had been killed in action in Afghanistan while on patrol with his 2/6 Marine Squad. I went thru the motions and made many decisions that I prayed Cody would have wanted in the days following.
One morning a few days before the big Military Memorial service we were p... read more >
My brother lives in Clermont, Florida, and often stops at Chick-fil-A on his way to work. His phone connects through a speaker in his car and often he and I are speaking on the phone when he goes through the drive-thru. The same guy is usually working the window. His name is Justin.
Over the past year or so, Justin and I have gotten to "know" each other through this unusual speaker-phone conv... read more >
