Couple Finds Live Moth Inside KFC Drink

Illustration for article titled Couple Finds Live Moth Inside KFC Drink

I'm pretty sure that didn't come out of the fountain.

Nicky Hammond and Jordan Laidler of Durham, England, just wanted a nice meal. Unfortunately, they decided to go to KFC, so that was right out. What they didn't expect was that they'd find a live moth fluttering around in their soda, because no one who isn't actively hallucinating would actually expect that.


This would be a problem under normal circumstances, but it's even worse since Hammond apparently is deathly afraid of moths. I know a fear of moths is more common than people realize, but I view it the same as I do a fear of squirrels (another common and kind of perplexing phobia): I shouldn't judge, but I can't stop laughing.

There's some dispute about what happened next: Laidler and Hammond claim they weren't offered an apology or a refund other than on the cheapest item they ordered, while the KFC claims they did apologize and offered them a full refund (albeit later that evening after Laidler and Hammond called the store).


The funniest part of this is one quote from Laidler:

"They have got our order wrong in the past, but this is going a bit too far."

I'm just going to go ahead and leave that there.

I once bought a bag of quinoa and when I went to open it, I saw two moths fluttering around in it. IF IT CAN HAPPEN TO MY HIPSTER QUINOA, IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU. NO ONE IS SAFE.

Eta: photographic evidence! (If it shows up.)
