CNN- When a South Carolina drive-thru coronavirus vaccine clinic got backed up, leaving people waiting for hours, the town mayor decided to call in a professional for help: a Chick-fil-A manager. Local hospitals in Mount Pleasant opened the clinic on January 22 for residents eligible to receive the first shots of Covid-19 vaccine. But shortly after the drive-thru opened, the computer system handling registrations went down, causing hundreds of people to wait in heavy traffic. That's when Jerry Walkowiak, the manager of a nearby Chick-fil-A, stepped in to save the day.
"When I heard about it, I called Jerry and asked if he would come help us out," Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie told CNN. "After he looked it over, he said, 'There's your problem right there. It's backed up because you have one person checking people in.' Then he showed us how to do it right." With the help of a few additional volunteers, Walkowiak transformed the messy traffic jam into a smooth operation, reducing the hours-long wait to just 15 minutes.
HEY BIG BITCH COVID!!!
I don't know why it took us this long to tap in a Chick-Fil-A manager to handle vaccine traffic considering every experience I have there is a 10/10, but humanity has finally brought in the big guns to rid that gray dickhead from the planet forever. It doesn't matter if it's lunch time, dinner time, or 3 PM on a Tuesday afternoon during a pandemic. There are always a zillion people at my Chick-Fil-A. But no matter what, everything somehow runs smoother there than at any other fast food joint at any time of day. Not only that, but you somehow feel happier dealing with the employees at Chick-Fil-A than you do slugging down whatever food you use as a vehicle to shovel CFA Sauce down your throat. Everything is a well oiled machine full of competence and smiles, which is quite a shock for someone that grew up in the Northeast. If there was a Chick-Fil-A in Wuhan, I have no doubt in my mind that COVID would've been killed in the womb in 19 instead of running rampant in 21.
The only question I have is if this Chick-Fil-A manager is truly ready to handle the schedule that comes with vaccinations. There are no days off for the Lord during a pandemic and even the great Mo Rivera needed a breather here and there before he started mowing motherfuckers down again. If we can't have Captain Amercia showing up with Mjolnir in his hands and the Avengers at his back to take down the coronavirus, there is no group of people I trust to save the day more than Chick-Fil-A managers.
