How long since you’ve been to:

Burger King - 3 years
Pizza Hut - 12 years
Frankie & Bennys - 10 years

KFC, McDonalds and Burger King > 17 years
Pizza Hut: 14 years
Frankie & Bennys: never

Guys, if we each take one, then we can easily make this a better thread. I’ll start.

All this calendar year, except Frankie & Bennys (never been).

So jealous of you people who’ve never been to Frankie and Bennys

it’s one of those things you take for granted, it’s not until I’ve lost that badge that I’ll realise it’s importance perhaps

KFC - went a couple of months ago during a sophisticated European city break, because sometimes you need a Tower Burger

McD’s - after a penoid thing in town maybe six months ago. I didn’t have anything, 'er indoors did.

Burger King - fuck knows, the last thing I had there made me feel ill even while I was eating it. Six years?

Pizza Hut - must be a decade or more

Frankie & Benny’s - Stansted one, maybe three years ago

The hell?! It’s now broadly fixed again. Reopening.

this is why I didn’t do polls

KFC - possibly 1998 or 1999?
McDonalds - oh gosh, maybe two weeks ago. I’d done 15 hours of poll clerking and was feeling weak.
Burger King - last year I think
Pizza Hut - May half term last year
Frankie & Bennys - maybe 11/12 years ago? Someone’s birthday. Horrendous.

KFC - 2 years, 4 months, 12 days
McDonalds - 5 months, 1 day, 2 hours
Burger King - n/a
Pizza Hut - 35 years, 12 minutes

so… you’re currently in Burger King, yes?

I am the burger king.

I do like to squeeze in a KFC visit every few months to steal a handful of their handwipes. They’re great for you know what.
