The Top 10 Struggles Of Every Chick-fil-A Employee

The Top 10 Struggles Of Every Chick-fil-A Employee

Where we say "my pleasure" and make thousands of frosted beverages a day.

There are awkward moments to every job, so here are 10 particularly awkward moments Chick-fil-A employees go through every day.

1. Saying "my pleasure" a few times a day

I can't tell you how many times I have to say that simple phrase. One of the worst things is, customers will come to eat and say "thank you" as many times as they can just so they can hear those simple words... "It's my pleasure"

2. Freshly Squeezed Lemonade anyone?

There's nothing fun about waking up around 5 a.m. But waking up at 5 a.m to make the famous Freshly Squeezed Lemonade that is oh so crave-able? It isn't always my favorite thing.

3. What about fresh biscuits?

Aside from waking up at 5 a.m every other day of the week, Fridays are the worst. Orders pile up throughout the week and then, on Friday morning, you get up at 3:30 a.m. and haul your sleep-induced self to making and prepare roughly 800 to 1000 Chick-fil-A biscuits. Fun comes with many faces I suppose.

4. Do you really need those 17 sauces?

That insane moment with every guest and the general public asking for way too many dipping sauces with their meal. Yes, I understand, our Chick-fil-A sauce is to die for, but you do not need 17 for your six-count nuggets and small fry.

5. Don't rush us.

That moment when a customer spends around $50 dollars on food and expects all their food to be ready in two minutes. We get it, you've got places to be, but we've got things to bag and a store to run.

6. Not ever knowing what you want for break food

I've tried everything on our menu, in every way imaginable... Chicken can only be made a handful of ways.

7. The overflowing stockpile of sauces at your house

Again with the sauces. You may ask for a lot, but I guarantee you, I have enough sauces in my kitchen to stock one restaurant.

8. Don't rush us, especially when it's about your eight frosted beverages.

When the only car in the drive-through orders five large milkshakes and three frosted beverages and expects them to be all ready when they get to the window...

9. Trying to find the perfect pair of non-slip shoes

Here's a tip, they don't exist. I've been through about five pairs of "non-slip" shoes, and none of them are even close to non-slip.

10. Without Chick-Fil-A, I wouldn't be the person I am today.

All in all, no matter how much we employees go through on a daily basis, I can always count on the friends I’ve made at my awesome job to be there and put a smile on my face. Those people make me want to put a smile on my face to greet you with “Hello, how may I serve you today?”

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.


If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
