Chick-fil-a’s Bellevue location opens in only a couple of weeks, which I call I triumphant return. Most people didn’t know – or forgot – that there was a university based Chick-fil-a up near Bellingham up until a few years ago, but since they were closed on Sunday, I never got up there. The Bellevue store is more convenient by far.
I can’t wait to see how long it takes me to get in there as I expect an Issaquah style Krispy Kreme mob scene on Day 1. Of course, I also expect half of that crowd to be protesting the privately owned business that model their beliefs based off their religion. Make no never mind to me. People have the constitutional right to protest and I support that. A private company’s owner has the constitutional right to guide their business based off religious beliefs, provided they aren’t breaking the law in doing so, and I’m happy to support the local franchise owner and the jobs she/he has created. But of course, not everyone sees it that way. Most people that fancy themselves to be freedom-loving liberals, which is funny because the same people cannot tolerate people that disagree with them… I guess the freedom to disagree isn’t available to everyone.
Either way, there’s a chicken sammich in my not so distant future and that’s good times.
