While the world is dealing with chaos in Afghanistan, the horrible aftermath of Hurricane Ida, and with COVID-19. But here in East Texas and specifically in Tyler there is another issue that is causing quite the reaction online, and that issue is PickleGate. While many people across the world might not believe this is a big deal, this topic has created 600+ comments on social media sites. The PickleGate scandal all started when one person went to rant online about only receiving one pickle slice on their Chick-fil-A.

The reactions online have been all over the place, who knew that this issue would create such a crazy storm of emotions. I will say I was impressed to see Chick-fil-A management jump on the post to try and make things right with the person who felt disappointed with the lack of pickle on the sandwich.

While many people will say this argument is ridiculous I will admit that this complaint came on a page called Rants, Raves, and Recommendations. So, while the complaint might sound petty, the whole basis of that social media page is to rant about certain topics and this person was obviously not happy with the amount of pickle on their sandwich.

This doesn't mean the business is bad. In fact, usually it's the contrary. I'll park four blocks away from Stanley's and brave being run over by an ambulance on Beckham Avenue for a Mother Clucker, all while wondering to myself "how in the hell did this wild-ass intersection even come into existence?" every week.
