Oh sweetie, getting fat off of wings at KFC isn’t how you win a break-up. The moment he dumped your ass you should’ve hit the gym, gotten a haircut and preferably bought some contact lenses, AKA changed everything about yourself so that you could confidently say “Ha-HA” in his face when he realizes how bad he fucked up.
But then again…you thought that spending a whole week inside a KFC was a good idea. Tan Shen, the poor heartbroken fried chicken aficionado from China, is probably beyond redemption at this point.
Depressed Tan Shen, 26, from Chengdu, in China’s southwest Sichuan Province, decided she needed some fried comfort food to get over her ex.
She stopped off at a KFC near a train station by her home, but ended up staying for a whole week because she ‘needed time to think’.
Tan even phoned in sick to work to stay at the KFC, with her break-up clearly hitting her very hard.
She said: ‘I was walking around feeling miserable and decided to stop off at the KFC at the train station.
‘I hadn’t planned on staying there long, I just wanted some chicken wings.
‘But once I got in there and started eating I decided I needed time to think.
‘I didn’t want to go back to my apartment because it was full of memories of him. So I stayed.’
After a few days employees at the chicken shop began to get concerned.
Worker Jiang Li Lung, 22, said: ‘We work in shifts here and the restaurant is open 24 hours a day, so we get a lot of people coming through.
‘At first no one really noticed her.
‘But after a few days I began thinking she looked really familiar.
‘Then I realised we had been serving her for the past three days and that she hadn’t actually left.
‘When we asked her if she was ok, she said she was and just needed time to think.
‘And then asked for another box of chicken wings with extra large fries.’
Yes, tell the fast food employees to fuck off and bring you another helping of fried bullshit in a box. It’s not like your life has clearly spiraled out of control since you spent a week living in a KFC, which I have to assume means you didn’t shower for 7 straight days either. I don’t know who Tan Shen’s boyfriend was, but kudos to him for getting the hell out of there just in time.
