When You Just Gotta Have Chick-fil-A!


Fast-food cravings can drive people do so some EXTREME stuff.

The cross country team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York REALLY wanted some Chick-fil-A last week for lunch.  But the closest Chick-fil-A restaurant was 90 minutes away . . . and three hours round-trip seemed excessive.

There WAS a closer Chick-fil-A inside of Albany International Airport 15 minutes away . . . but they had to get inside of the terminal to get to it.

So they pooled their money and bought the cheapest ticket they could find:  A $98 one-way flight to Fort Lauderdale on Delta.  It cost them around $5.50 each.

Then the team captain used the ticket to get through airport security and buy $227 worth of Chick-fil-A.  He left the airport without flying on the flight, obviously, and delivered the food back to his teammates.

The 18 guys ordered 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches, 15 large fries, 156 nuggets, one bag of cookies, and one lemonade.
