Everyone Is Talking About This Rude Chick-Fil-A Receipt

There are a number of mistakes people make when ordering fast food, and one of them is failing to read your receipt. In a 2016 study, Ttag Systems found that 45.9 percent of fast food consumers were missing valuable offers that were printed on their fast food receipts. In addition, asking for a receipt could save you money or inspire better customer service. Unfortunately, however, reading your receipt comes with its own set of risks, one of which is coming face to face with an insulting comment made about you by the fast food worker who took your order.

That's precisely what David Allen, a veteran from Maricopa County, Arizona, claims happened to him on a recent visit to a Chick-fil-A in Goodyear, Arizona (via AZ Family). After receiving his drive-through order, Allen looked at his receipt and noticed that the "guest name" assigned to him by the person who took the order was "2BIGGIE." Allen, who is "finally turning the corner for weight loss after years of trying," believed the moniker was a snarky reference to his weight. 

Now the internet is on the verge of breaking as everyone is talking about the "rude Chick-fil-A receipt." The question, however, is was the rude receipt really a dig? Or was it something else entirely? 

If this indeed happened, it is clearly not acceptable, according to the Chick-fil-A franchise owner

Imagine picking up your fast food order, checking the receipt, and realizing you're being mocked for being overweight? That's what Arizona veteran, David Allen, believed happened to him at a recent visit to Chick-fil-A, according to AZ Family. Allen, who attributes his weight loss struggles to extended periods of being "sidelined" as a result of "mental and physical issues from his time overseas," was shocked when he saw the receipt, which gave him the guest-name, "2BIGGIE" (via AZ Family). 

Ironically, Chick-fil-A has a reputation for employing some of the nicest fast food workers in the country. Still more ironic is that the order wasn't even for Allen, but his wife, Olymphia, who was in the car with Allen at the time the order was placed and completed. However, even with everyone on the internet now talking about the "rude Chick-fil-A receipt," it appears there is another side to the story. According to AZ Family, the restaurant manager claims the cashier actually thought that the name Allen that had given her was "BIGGIE," and the "2" that preceded it stood for the drive-thru lane the Allens drove up in. The Allens disagree. The cashier confirmed Allen's name three times," according to Olymphia, who could only conclude that there was no miscommunication.
