How Chick-Fil-A Employees Wish People Would Stop Reacting To The Sauce Shortage

Restaurants handle product shortages differently, but Chick-fil-A has pulled out all the stops when it comes to making sure everyone gets served equally. According to WTRF, the chicken chain recently sent a memo to all of its customers, stating that each diner can only receive one pack of sauce for an entree, two sauces per meal, and three sauces for a 30-count chicken nugget order. The memo states that the limitations stem from a sauce shortage.

Although the company apologized to customers, fans haven't taken the news well. According to the Miami Herald, customers have tweeted at the president to address the shortage, some have compared the lack of sauce to the current gasoline shortage, and even wrapped the issue into the larger national chicken shortage. Chick-fil-A fans' despair has seeped into every recess of the internet, and the chain's employees have a few choice ideas of how these disgruntled fans should really approach the situation.

Chick-fil-A employees have chimed in about the sauce shortage

In a post over at r/ChickFilAWorkers, a Redditor wondered, "Is anyone else just getting really bad responses from this? I have people getting mad at me because they can't get like 15 sauces with their order of two meals and I cannot comprehend why people need it. I'm even getting eye rolls for trying to sell the bottle instead to get them sauce." Workers across the internet chimed in, with replies like, "I've always gotten bad responses to sauce shortages. People are undeniably obsessed," and "Yep! One time I had limited Chick-Fil-A sauce, this person with one meal wanted 10 sauces so I explained the situation and if I can reduce that amount. Kid you not, this person looks me in the eyes and says, 'Okay I'll take 8,' FOR ONE MEAL." Customers have fought employees over the sauce issue, and overall, the workers hope that customers can calm down and understand the situation.

If you hit up a Chick-fil-A in the next few days and wonder where the sauce went, remember to give the employees a break. After handling multiple complaints a day, the staff could use some customer cooperation and your help getting through the sauce shortage. If all goes well, the company's sauce reserve should return before long.
