Since When Do You Close Early?


There comes a time in a person's busy life when you just don't feel like cooking. You know that day. You've been working your butt off for so long that you just feel like ordering takeout. It can be either Chinese or the nearby fast food chicken spot. In my case, it was Kennedy Fried Chicken. But here is my question.

Since when the hell do they close early?

One night, I was on my way home with a large backpack around my shoulders. If I had to describe how busy my day was, you would be wondering how in the world am I still alive. Long story short, I was exhausted. My body was ready to go into my apartment and pass out on the hallway floor. So guarantee that I wasn't thinking about cooking anything.

It was 7pm and the first thing on my mind was ordering takeout. I was craving fried chicken. In my neighborhood, the first thing that you think of is Kennedy Fried Chicken. So on the way home, that was the first place I was thinking of. No matter how late of the night it is, I always count on this place to give me some quick food.

Sadly, on that very night, I walk up the hill to the restaurant to find that it was closed. No warnings or early notices. Just everything locked up and sealed away. I checked the time on my cell phone and saw that it was thirty minutes after 7. This place never closed up around that time.

All I know is when I saw that, I wanted to erupt like a volcano. All I wanted was some Kennedy fried chicken and just lounge in my apartment with takeout. I didn't with Kennedy. In the end, it was with Chinese food, which was located at the other side of my apartment.  The littlest things you want is sometimes hard to get.
