One of the many, many tasks self-assigned in this marathon at the praxeum, is to find the closest Chick-fil-A to HornGirl’s grad school.
We’re Southern, you know, and need our Chick-fil-A and sweet tea fix. Frequently. You New Yorkers just wouldn’t understand.
Imagine our dismay to find there was only one Chick-fil-A in all of New York state. At NYU, no less. NOT convenient. But it has attracted the attention of a local NY council member, who wanting to score cheap points with the #hatechicken crowd, is now calling for the location to be closed.
Just like other protests/boycotts/etc. that backfire, this suits us southern, barefoot, ignorant bigots just fine. There’s a Chick-fil-A at the Woodbridge Center Mall in New Jersey. And I’m quite sure that the Garden State will happily welcome the tax revenue that New York so haughtily turns up their nose up at.
I know a couple of first year grad students already planning their weekly roadtrips. NWWTIYKWIM
