Story Time!

Gather 'round, folks.

Good ol' [GM]Dave is gonna tell you a little story.

*tunes up his banjo*

Seems late Saturday night, Dave got a hankerin' for some food.

Looking through the cupboards, he noticed that all these foods required him to actually do work.

Dave was not happy.

*strum*

He decided to head on down to the local Kentucky Fried Chocobo to get hisself a good meal. He was quite hungry and purchased a 4-Piece Meal.

Yum.

Now usually, this food item had the following effects:

4-Piece Meal
+ 3 MND
- 10 AGI
Duration: 3 hours

*strum*

Unfortunately, Dave must have missed a note in the last patch where they adjusted the effect of this food.

Apparently, they changed it to:

4-Piece Meal
-10 MND
-10 AGI
Additional Effect: Inventory sorts and empties randomly
Duration: 24 hours

You'd think he'd have noticed that in the patch notes.

He did not.

If he had, he might not have spent 24 hours throwing up.

That might have been helpful information.

*strum*

Lovely story, that one.

I get the same effect from a certain hamburger chain which will remain nameless.

Wait a minute, Dave, I had the same meal yesterday, and nothing strange happened to me. Perhaps you got some bugged food?

Consider, this Dave. You payed money to throw up for 24 hours. Oh, sure, it would have cost time to make cupboard stuff, but probably less then 24 hours (which could have been used on FFXI, sleep, sex/your wife, and your daughter, not necessarily in that order). And it would have been free. Order out to the cupboard, or get what you pay for.

Dude... stay AWAY from Kentucky Fried Chocobolo. I used to work at one...

There was the memorable day (thankfully, BEFORE I started working for 'em), where the morning shift found EVERY flat surface covered in maggots. Manager closed for cleaning, and promptly got reamed by regional management for closing.

She was supposed to open the restaurant with maggots all over.

Once (during my tenure), I came in to be told "don't eat ANYTHING not prepackaged".

Seems that all the chocobolo had been delivered after it's "kill" date (meaning it should already be thrown away). Adding insult to injury, the coolers were broken: the chocobolo was turning green. Regional management's solution?

"Pack it in ice... it'll be fine"

Do NOT eat there, man!

Yeah -- I've eaten at KFC 3 times in my life, all 3 times, I've felt horrible and sick.

Same with Taco Bell since it started being owned by that company that owns KFC & Pizza Hut.

Ugh, never eat there :<
