Dunno if it made the News Down Under but KFC was forced to close 900 outlets after running out of chicken here !

 

Some clown at KFC didn't do the Maths and awarded the delivery contract to DHL. The knock on being former food delivery specialist Bidvest (formerly known as *3663) had to close some depots laying off a lot of staff.

 

Cue reality !

 

It's already cost millions of £'s. Waaaaay more than the anticipated savings they expected to make  due to DHL not having a clue !

 

Entire Reefers of chicken were scrapped due to no-one knowing how to set Reefer fridges !!

 

I suspect Bidvest are pissing themselves with laughter.

 

KFC staff were filmed buying entire shelfloads of chicken at local supermarkets !!

 

But someone in the KFC PR department scored major brownie points by taking out full page adverts with this "Fowl" apology

Good to see a sense of humour but most of those outlets are Franchises with their staff being on Zero Hour contracts

 

ie: No work... No money !!

 

 

*3663 on old rotary telephones spelled food

#1197423 Citizenship consultation now on.

Posted by Outcast_Aussie on 06 November 2017 - 03:10 AM

Quite ironic this thread being necro'd.

 

My eldest daughter is applying for Aus citizenship via my father in law. He's Aussie but has lived (Uk) here for  51 years.

 

Weird thing is about 15 years ago he wanted to go visit family in NZ and so applied to renew his Aussie Passport. He was told if he leaves Britain he can't return !!

Letters to MP and someone in immigration gets jailed (Coincidence ?) and F.i.L gets granted British Residency on Aussie Passport !

 

[Edit]

 

I'm a pom. We emigrated to WA in early 70's but returned Xmas 76. Stupid Parents never got naturalised as "we'll never be coming back" even though I never wanted to leave. (I was 15).

 

I aaplied to return and was told no problems if I have a job to go to.

 

Impossible. In 1982 the world was in recession so after much ado I applied for a work visa. Shit storm happened at Canberra House as they pulled out my emigration request and asked "on the spot" do you want citizenship or what?

I just wanted to get back and physically look for a job so I didn't care if I overstayed my visa - I wouldn't be getting in trouble so shouldn't get sussed.

 

I got back to Aus and retook my driving test as a n00b - Passed. Open bank accounts and got work.

 

Then I bumped into a girl I was seriously sweet on when I was at school (aussie school) only she was all grown up now ! And she kept taking me down the beach/ Nightclubs/ Everywhere.

 

..... Then she got married !!

 

I was left in Zombie Land. Australia is a Paradise but Paradise is a lonely place when you've no-one to share it with. So I came back to be a miserable sod in a Country full of miserable sods !

Just to note that UKIP actually told their supporters (of which I am one) to vote Tactically. ie: Vote Tory because of Brexit.

They even stood down their candidate in our area to give the Tory Stewart Jackson a better run.

 

Not that it mattered because Stewart got beaten by a Labour unknown anyway !!




#1189642 So far so good...

Spent about a grand £ on a (literally) shedload of wood & screws & stuff to build a new shed !!

 

Started off like this - That's what's left of a 22 year old 8ft x 6ft shed. We got fed up of piling everything on top of everything .. Then needing something at the bottom/back !!

Frame work up next and guttering on

It's 28C here

 

And the humidities through the roof

 

Buckets and sweat !!

 

For those that are unaware.. Air Con in the uk is an open window and a fan. We have Central Heating not Central Cooling.

Might do something about that over the winter months !!
