    Could be worse. You could talk to yourself for a period of posts or you could post ridiculous statements over and over again and think their funny and entraining.

    Yes, that is so true.

    However since they have stopped doing that, they definitely have more time for being awesome!

    I think I thanked you twice today. That's my contribution, you're welcome.

    Today has been a real eye opener as to what a big corporate restructure looks like. Its a bizarre feeling being on the outside looking in, as none of it really effects me but its interesting to witness the politics and aftermath from all people involved.

    Oh yes that's right. Forgot. I've been through takeovers, reshuffles, layoffs, etc before. I was working for a very large multinational for a few years at the time.They're not pleasant experiences. The politics of these things are very interesting.

    I have only worked in small companies. Also now, at the university, it feels very familiar as I rarely come in contact with the entire institution and most things are handled on my floor or directly with my professor.

    Do you care to explain? (If I ask the question like this, does it have a reproachful tone to it?)

    It must be some cultural reference?

    Ah, yes. KFC. I have seen quite a few KFC's in my time, but I have never entered one.

    We don't have KFC in Switzerland.

    I don't think KFC exists outside the UK in the EU. (can't recall Russia) Though I could be wrong.

    No Popeye's here, I've been to one in Canada and I agree. Also they don't have a secret recipe.... that everyone more or less knows.

    There are KFCs in Germany and Austria. I don't know why not in Switzerland, and I don't care much really.

    Found this map on the German Wikipedia: File:KFC world map1.png - Wikimedia Commons

    I have been to a Popeye's in the US, but it wasn't really that great. But we were there like 5 minutes before they closed, so maybe they were just pissed and gave us the food lying around for a while.

    Probably a very good chance of that. They were just looking to get you out of there and close. And really there is no excuse for that.

    Well, I understand it to some extend, they are probably payed minimum wage and it was pretty late. There's really no fun in that. If they would be payed well, then I'd have some issues with it, as I'd expect professional treatment until the last minute.

    True, but if nothing else there should be a manager there to insure a good experience for the customers and return business. But then again, some managers are worse than their lower paid employees. What city was it if I may ask?
