El Pollo Loco - crazy chicken or just crazy?

A friend of mine and I decided to dine at the local El Pollo Loco last Friday in an attempt at a healthy alternative for food. Not remotely a preferred place of mine to dine, but Subway was getting old.

So I ordered the skinless chicken breast meal as seen in my receipt I posted here. Now as your peruse the receipt, did you happen to notice the customer name toward the bottom? To think I've been spelling my name wrong all these years. No wonder I had to repeat my name three times for her to hammer it out.

Then my meal came. Now, I don't claim to be ridiculously smart, but I would have thought purchasing a skinless chicken breast implied there would be no skin. I guess I was out smarted again by the employees of El Pollo Loco. So I was left to pick off that nastiness myself. Nasty.

And then the mother of all nastiness. As I'm finishing up my meal, something caught my eye just to the left of my friends shoulder who was sitting in front of a window. Perched on the window sill was a very dead monster size furry moth. We're talking inches away from my friend, on the inside of the restaurants window sill. It was DISGUSTING!! Thank goodness I was already pretty much done with my food cause that right there would have done me in. I think I just vurped.

Funny...I started from the bottom and was like "Cinthya"? WTH?

BTW, I'm going to start calling you MariBath. As of now.

So, MariBath, I take it you're never going to be eating chicken skin or fat fuzzy moth there again?

I think I just vurped, too...

Sick! I remember one time going to Acupulcos and there was a water bug (it looked like a roach) right on the table...alive! Brian was with us and caught it under his glass! Needless to say I didn't eat there for years after that incident.

That is hilarious! How do some people get through life?

You know what? I just came back to see if you'd added anything, reread this, and vurped again. Seriously.
