🕸️ Crawling the web

Here is what else is happening across the ‘net.

🥞 A customer recently went viral after she found mold in her food while dining at a Louisville, Kentucky IHOP.

🏋️ A woman’s routine trip to the gym ended in a strange recovery of her vehicle at a nearby apartment complex after she says a stranger learned her routine and waited until she was working out to steal her car.

🌯 Over-eager Chipotle customers are being mocked in this viral video for waiting for the restaurant to open in the morning.

🥫 One woman thinks Campbell’s Soup cans could become dented in the factory before hitting store shelves. But these caved canisters aren’t just weird-looking, she intimates, but that they could potentially put customers at risk.

🚗 A car-buying consultant has gone viral on TikTok after pointing out a common mistake made when negotiating with a car dealership.

🎂 Don’t sleep on Walmart for your cake needs. The skills of the corporation’s bakers might surprise you just as much as they surprised many on TikTok.

🎶 From the Daily Dot archive: Without live performances amid the pandemic, musicians relied on streaming services to stay afloat.

👋 Before you go

Chick-fil-A customer appears convinced that the beloved fast-casual poultry franchise has changed its main attraction stating that the brand’s chicken just doesn’t hit like it used to.

Katelyn Nassar (@katelynfletcher) posted a viral TikTok addressed directly to Chick-fil-A, demanding to know why the business decided to change the chicken it uses in its recipes.

“This message is for Chick-fil-A and for Chick-fil-A only: why did you change your chicken? Because this tastes like rubber,” she states, opening up one of the chain’s red cardboard containers and then pulling out a breaded nugget.

“It’s like rubber. Like literally…” she says right before she takes a chomp out of the allegedly “rubber” chicken. “Not the same crunch…I’m upset. That’s all,” she declares.
