By the time you’re like six years old, you figure out that fast food in real life looks NOTHING like it does in the commercials. In ads it looks beautiful and delicious . . . in real life it looks like glistening squashed roadkill.
A 64-year-old woman named Anna Wurtzburger from Hopewell Junction, New York has apparently managed to live for seven decades without figuring that out.
She recently got a $20 bucket of chicken from KFC, but when she got home, she found it wasn’t BURSTING with gorgeous pieces of fried chicken like in the photos.
Quote, “They say it feeds the whole family, they’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken. You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces.”
She called KFC’s corporate offices to complain, but when they kind of blew her off, she decided to SUE. She just filed a $20 million lawsuit against KFC for false advertising.
Something tells me this is NOT like the time Subway got in trouble for making footlongs that weren’t a foot long. KFC called the lawsuit, quote, “meritless.”

MCALLEN, Texas – On Tuesday, Sept. 13, Whataburger customers can show their support for the Nikki Rowe High School band booster club by enjoying their favorite menu items, and 20 percent of Whataburger’s sales from 6 to 9 p.m. will be donated to the organization. Whataburger’s “Oh Whata Night” will include its popular “Whataburger for a Year” drawing, where one customer’s name will be drawn to win the prize – a free Whataburger each week for an entire year. To add to the fun, there will be a photo booth at the event, as well as a guest appearance from Whataburger’s mascot, Whataguy. The first 100 attendees will also receive free sunglasses.
“Whataburger believes in investing in the communities we call home,” said Whataburger Director of Operations David Cantu. “We’re fortunate to join with the most generous customers in support for the Nikki Rowe High School band boosters.”
Family-owned Whataburger has proudly served its famous burgers since 1950 and continues to deliver fresh, made-to-order meals every day with extraordinary customer service. In addition to “Oh Whata Night” fundraising, Whataburger supports the communities it serves through charitable giving and volunteerism to a number of nonprofit organizations that focus on children’s charities, cancer research, hunger assistance, disaster relief and military support.
A new study found the average person deals with 84 awkward social situations a year. And the MOST awkward one is having to introduce someone when you can’t remember their name. Here are the top ten . . .
1. Introducing someone when you don’t know their name. 43% of us have done it.
2. Bumping into someone you don’t like.
3. Being interviewed for a new job.
4. Meeting someone who used to date the person you’re currently with.
5. Networking for your job.
6. Meeting the parents for the first time.
7. Going on a first date.
8. Talking to someone you’re attracted to.
9. Meeting up with someone you met online.
10. Greeting a room full of people. It’s not clear if that means walking into a room full of people, or having to meet and exchange names with a bunch of people at once.
A few more that made the top 20 were bumping into an ex . . . meeting your idol or a celebrity . . . dancing with someone . . . a first kiss . . . standing up in a packed train or bus . . . and being told you have something in your teeth.

Americans are bad at taking vacation days. That’s a fact. But if the reason you don’t use your vacation days is because you think it’ll help your career if you’re there every single day . . . it’s exactly the opposite.
A new survey found that you’re MORE likely to get a raise or a bonus if you take at least 11 vacation days a year. Maybe everyone at your job sees how TERRIBLE it is without you and they realize they need to pay you more to keep you around?
Here are a few more results from the survey . . .
1. The main reason people pass on taking vacations is they hate the mountain of work that’s waiting for them when they get back.
2. 58% say their boss isn’t very supportive of them taking vacation time.
3. And the average person took 20 vacation days a year between 1976 and 2000 . . . but that’s down to 16 vacation days a year today.
