A local Chick-fil-A that is far enough away to where you have never been to it has landed in some hot water because some cold lemonade landed on a customer. Witnesses say that the customer ordered a Spicy Chicken combo meal and had already received their table number when the employee accidentally spilled a delicious, refreshing, ice-cold lemonade on the customer. A dramatic gasp filled the restaurant as fresh squeezed lemonade dripped to the floor. Those standing close to the counter of the restaurant say that the employee looked the customer in the eye, smiled, and simply stated "My Pleasure," leading some to believe that this spill could have possibly been premeditated. Chick-fil-A has not commented on the story because they were not asked to comment.
The customer who had Chick-fil-A's famous lemonade spilled on them was forgiving at first, but after the employee looked at them and said "My Pleasure," the customer was confused.
"I understand that it is part of their code to say my pleasure as they serve their customers," said the person whom the thirst quenching, world famous lemonade was spilled on, "but was it right to say it after spilling the drink on me? That's why I am a little sour about it."
The customer was rightfully sour, because the lemonade was in fact spilled on their clothing. However, Chick-fil-A's lemonade is the perfect combination of sweet and tart, so the customer should have displayed a sugary attitude as well.
Was the spill on purpose or a mishap? Was the "My Pleasure" intentional or accidental? These questions are fueling the "Lemonade-gate" within the town that this event is affecting, and many in the community are thinking this case has the chops to make it all the way to the Supreme Court.
"Over a spilled cup of lemonade? Not a chance" said Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court.
This mishap happened on a Saturday, and many are jumping to the conclusion that Chick-fil-A knows they are guilty considering they closed their doors the following day. The customer has agreed to not press charges and was given a refill of their very reasonably priced lemonade after they took the lid off and told the employee if they wanted more ice or not.
