Pre prepared formed burgers
Posted by on
HARRISON, ARKANSAS -- I live in Harrison Arkansas. I work the 3-11 shift and not all is open when I get off work. I used to get a good Frisco Burger and looked forward to it. I can not believe how terrible it was. I had to throw it out to the cat. it was a preformed hanburger. Not 100% beef and nothing like what the pictures look like. I am so disappointed in this. I will probably not go back due to thisd. Why does a real thing have to change? If so the pictures are wrong and lies are being told.

Starlord on 2011-04-30:
I am sorry about the burgers nowadays. Almost all restaurants and definitely all fast food places use preformed hamburger patties. Denny's does have an old-fashioned burger that is not a perfect circle or square. I don't know what the thing is that people have about 100% beef, I like my ground beef to be about 85% or so beef, and about 15% additions to enhance the flavor and texture. Pure beef is pretty bland, and only second to mutton in being almost tasteless I don't know of anyone who can tell 100% beef without a lab test. I hope you can find a burger you like, but I have found a number of them, but if not, you can buy 80/20 ground chuck and make your own burgers.
madconsumer on 2011-04-30:
about 90% of fast food burgers are pre-formed.

food photography is used to make the food look better than it is.
trmn8r on 2011-04-30:
Skye, are you speaking of both how lean the meat is and the addition of fillers?

80/20 meat is 20% fat, 85/15 15% fat. I assumed what the OP meant was 100% ground beef, meaning no fillers. By this definition, 80/20, 85/15, 90/10 would all be 100% ground beef from the filler perspective.

I make my own burgers when I want a good one. I use whatever leanness I happen to pick up (but not 75/25 which is too fatty), mix it with a little dried onion soup powder (not the onion bits), garlic powder, salt and pepper, worcestershire sauce.

You can find a good burger out, but not at a fast food joint these days.
Starlord on 2011-05-01:
My hero, Alton Brown, states that 80/20 is perfect for making the perfect burger. The only way I disagree with him is mayo on a burger, Yuckkkkk! I add various things to improve texture and taste, but I still use 100% beef, with small amounts added to improve the beef. Ground chuck (my preference) is actually pretty bland, and needs some improvement. I have seen devices offered for sale to make patties ahead of time, and there is nothing wrong with pre-formed patties.

I agree with Starlord....Mayo belongs NO WHERE near a burger.....

Miracle Whip!

I believe mayo on burgers is part of California style.

We ate our burgers on grilled buns, thin layer of mayo on the bottom, then burger, then relish, onion and ketchup.

Before I was banned at Red Robin, I got the recipe for one of their burgers. They used chipolte mayo, onion straws and Heinz 51 sauce. This was the Blue Ribbon Burger. I substituted the onion straws (in the can) for raw onion, use the Heinz 51 instead of ketchup, still use relish and regular mayo. When I eat this burger, I die and go to heaven. I come back just to post on my3c.

I'm from Cali and I've never liked mayo on burgers, or anything for that matter
trmn8r on 2011-05-01:
I got it wrong, both what we did and what a Cali Burger is:

A California Burger is mayo, burger, lettuce, tomato. Google it.

Our family did this, and the kids changed it with relish and ketchup. My Northeast-native parents lived in Cali in the 50's. They brought back East a love of avocados and California burgers, as well as other things.
Anonymous on 2011-05-01:
I guess we did not have Calif burgers when I grew up in Cali. My dad grilled a mean burger. We had ketchup, dill pickles, grilled onions and cheese. Yum! Now I like a couple of slices of avocado too. Now, I'm hungry!

We put Miracle Whip on our burgers. And we put avocados on burgers and sandwiches
Anonymous on 2011-05-01:
Okay, this is what I found on Wikipedia: "In portions of the Midwest and East coast, a hamburger served with lettuce, tomato, and onion is called a "California burger". This usage is sufficiently widespread to appear on the menus of Dairy Queen. In the Western U.S., a "California" burger often means a cheeseburger, with guacamole and bacon added."

I think I can suffice to say that anything on a burger that you enjoy is what you should eat:)

I love Bob's Big Boys! I used to by a jar of their 'special sauce' but it just isn't the same anymore and waaaay expensive. Now, I make my own 'Basher's Special Sauce'.
DebtorBasher on 2011-05-01:
Just a note, most of the time when I say 'mayo', I'm talking about Miracle Whip, which is what I use. I have to get out of the habit of call MW, mayo. Whenever I do use mayo, I use only Hellmann's. But I never use Hellmann's Mayo on sammies...only Miracle Whip. I only use Hellmann's in potato salads or Mac Salad and even then, it is half Hellmann's and half MW.
Anonymous on 2011-05-01:
I'm a Miracle Whip person myself. No mayo for me. I used to like Mayo, but after trying the Miracle Whip and it's zest and zing...there was no turning back.

Funny that you can discern between mayo and Miracle Whip. Being someone that doesn't like either--they taste the same to me--yucky! I think people from different parts of the country were raised on different things. We weren't a big mayo family apparently. The only thing I will eat it in, because it's so disguised, is deviled eggs, but never alone on a sandwich.

Never again
Posted by on
CLINTON, SOUTH CAROLINA -- First, let me say, I go to Hardee's a lot because I love the thickburger. I have had poor service every time I have gone and I am a regular customer.

The cashier could not figure out how to plit the order charges because we had some coupons. I had to help her figure out how much to charge each person. They got mad about that. But they had brought 4 people out before they found a shift manager who could figure it out!

Two of us got the SW chicken salad, which I love and get often. We got there at 5PM. Two got their order around 5:15, one SW Ch. Salad came at 5:30 and at 5:45, I still had not gotten mine. That is 45 minutes in a fast food restuarant?? I had to take my food to go because we had somewhere to go. They made me wait because they were mad because I helped them figure it out!

The service is slow, the workers are lazy and uninterested. Customer service is a joke and these people are killing the business.
Hardee's has good food. It is a shame they cannot get decent employees who care about their job and the customers they serve. there is hardly ever many people there and do you suppose poor customer service has anything to do with it??

I said tonight was the last straw and I will Not go back there again.

I live in a small town and there are not that many restaurants, but I will drive to the next town to eat before I go back there; even though the food is good.

Service matters as much as food and these employees are not trained; from management on down to the line people to the cashiers and it is not even busy!! They have an attitude that is rude and out of line!

The only well trained, courteous and efficeint employee I have found there is an elderly woman who is at least 75+ and works the early shift. she is good! The rest couldn't care less if someone comes again. It is not their business; it is just apaycheck to them. And one they don't deserve.

jkt does have a good point.
Anonymous on 2009-08-07:
I've said it before.....places like this, Hardees, KFC, etc. are kids. The OP said they only want a paycheck and they don't care. Yes, you nailed it. They are there for the paycheck. Once people understand that, then they can expect nothing and hope for the best.
TGT101 on 2009-08-07:
Isn't a paycheck the only reason that anyone has a job?
jktshff1 on 2009-08-08:
There are plenty of hardworking kids out there that do a great job in these places, given what they have to do and put up with. I would be willing to bet that at least 50% of the time, it's a customer's mistake or attitude that causes the problem.
That being said, with the current economy, you're going to see older people vying for these jobs.
TG, I do what I do because I enjoy it.

"I said tonight was the last straw and I will Not go back there again. "

Stick to your guns.


One of my co-workers had to give up ongoing to one Hardee's location because the workers would screw up orders .. or they'd invent new rules...

one of them even claimed you couldn't get the low-carb burger without onions because it wouldn't be "low carb" then and refused to make it.


so she finally stopped going to that one
Nohandle on 2009-08-08:
Super Granny you've confused me and I wasn't even there. How many of you walked into this Hardee's and how many coupons were you attempting to use? Then you want them to split the ticket. Why didn't all of you settle that among yourselves or why didn't you each order for himself and use whatever coupon applied?
jktshff1 on 2009-08-08:
TG, being a commissioned salesperson, selling capital equipment, is similar to owing your own business, you have to like it or you would go broke. I don't want to retire.

Hardees Customers
Posted by on
As a former manager of the Hardees in Lehigh Acres, FL that recently had to close its doors due to the economy, I sat here and read the reviews.

First off, Hardees does NOT serve biscuits after breakfast is over. Their biscuits are made FRESH daily. They aren't frozen they are made FRESH! Secondly, our chicken strips don't come in a 10 piece. Thirdly, they DO make the best burgers. With all that is on one of our burgers, how does one expect it to be "neat" when eating? As far as employees go, the reason that companies such as Hardees, McDonalds, etc, charge employees for meals if because that most of the employees tend to "walk off" with food most of the times!!

Yes, the customers are nasty for the most part, but its that way no matter where you go!! Customer service isn't what it used to be ANYWHERE these days. Restaurants are having to cut back on labor costs meaning there are LESS ppl in the restaurant to help you. Thing is..at Hardees, your burgers are cooked TO ORDER!! That means that, they aren't PREMADE and left in a steamer or SITTING somewhere waiting for you to come and buy it!! Its made FRESH! SO yea, you MAY have to wait a few minutes, especially if you're one of those morons that waits till you got to the drive through window, THEN realized that you didn't want Ketchup or Mayo on your sandwich. I've YET to see any of my employees take an order then tell the cook in the back.."Oh I had a thought! They don't want ketchup or mustard on that sandwich!"

So the next time you're writing one of these "reviews" and complaining that we "had no biscuits at 6:30 pm" Guess what genius, biscuits that are a BREAKFAST food, are THROW AWAY IMMEDIATELY when breakfast ends. They aren't sold at ANYTIME afterwards. To the employees that are complaining that they have to pay 50% for their meal, guess what? If you worked ANY other job other than food service, you would be brown bagging it!! Or going to the closest fast food joint..PAYING for your meal..FULL PRICE! None of these places HAVE to GIVE you food, with this economy, be glad to have a job! Not everyone is so lucky

You know, Hardees used to be good. I remember back in the late seventies and early eighties when you could go in at 2AM on a Saturday after a night of partying and buy the Cinnamon raisin biscuits. People would talk about those biscuits, about how good they were. Then Hardees did away with that. Can't say I've been to one in 15 years..

I'm really sorry that you assume most fast food employees are out to steal food. A few of us are still honest.

Discrimination And Poor Services At Hardee's In Jacksonville FL
Posted by on
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I went to Hardee's for breakfast this morning. I sat in the drive through with the line not moving until my daughter was going to be late for work and we had to leave (20 minutes, no movement at all of the cars ahead of me). We left and took her to work.

My son and I still wanted biscuits, so we went back. The fact is, they do have the best biscuits in fast food. I went inside because the drive through was still backed up. I get inside and there are two people in line ahead of me waiting to order. I quickly realize there are 15 other people waiting for food they already ordered. An older couple and an older single person say they've been waiting for thirty minutes. I already gave my order, so now I am waiting too. I wait for 30 minutes while all of these other people wait too; none of the waiting customers have received their food yet. Then a man in line orders and his food is handed to him immediately right there are the cash register while the rest of us keep waiting.

I figure he ordered only one thing and something they had ready? and I keep waiting like the others. More people order and wait. The single older man finally gets his food, he has been waiting 55 minutes for it. Another person comes through and is handed her food immediately, she had three items and one of those items is the same as something on my order that I am waiting for??? I quickly realize all these waiting people are white. The two who got food right away are black. The whole staff in the restaurant is black too, not a white person in it other than waiting customers.

We stand and wait, the older white couple gets their food after waiting 1 hr and 10 minutes. Another black person comes through and gets his food right then, then two more do. And I keep waiting. It is all I can do not to just throw a big screaming fit in protest. Finally, after 1 hr and 27 minutes, yes I timed it, I get my food and leave. There are still roughly 8 whites waiting for food and no blacks. This location does about equal white and black business from looking around at customers, so you can't just explain it by saying more whites eat there. It isn't right for people to discriminate based on color, be it black, white or other. Hardee's should do better than this. Why is their breakfast always so slow? And why do these employees think it is okay to pick and choose who gets their food???

Hardee's on Merrill Rd. Jacksonville FL Don't set foot on their property-- boycott this place. If they don't want to service whites, then don't make them.

I would not have waited 20 min, much less nearly an hour and a half.

Personally, I find their biscuits to be way too greasy for me.
Nohandle on 2008-11-15:
You waited 1 hour and 27 minutes and a couple waited 1 hour and 10 minutes for a breakfast biscuit? And there was a guy who waited 55 minutes? Oh, I forgot you had already waited 20 minutes in the drive through and returned to that same location. There are some mighty patient folks there in Jacksonville. Have a nice day and try again tomorrow.

I'm with MissMarple. I would not have lasted 15 minutes. You guys are awfully patient. I've never eaten their food, but my husband has and he said it was nothing to write home about.
Slimjim on 2008-11-15:
If what you say was true, I would think it would be come obvious to many quickly of the practices of that location. That would bring about hence ether some some serious chanrges against the place or if the whites woke up and stopping waiting over an hour for fast food from Hardees of all places, a damaging loss of business.

Waiting a hour for fast food man you got patience.
GenuineNerd on 2008-11-15:
I don't see it as discrimination, since the restaurant serves a racially mixed area, but a case of the restaurant being shorthanded. That Hardee's needs to bring in more staff to cover everything during a busy "rush" period. The fewer staff you have, the longer wait there is for service, and the more customers you eventually lose due to slow service. The manager of that Hardee's needs to put the "help wanted" sign up.
DebtorBasher on 2008-11-15:
They must have some great food there to wait that long.
Did anyone speak up and ask what was taking so long for their orders? Was anything said at all?

Yes, this should be reported to their corp. office...have them review the security tapes and they should see if there is a clear pattern here or if there was a legit reasoning for it.

Otherwise, go to Denny's, I heard they serve white people first there.
Anonymous on 2008-11-15:
Please return here and tell me that you really didn't wait an hour and a half for your order. PLEASE! Tell me it's not true!

Stay Away
Posted by on
GRAFTON, NORTH DAKOTA -- This letter is in regard to the poor level of service I received at the Hardees Restaurant in Grafton, ND on the afternoon of October 05, 2007.

I entered the drive through and placed an order for a single combo-meal. I was the second car in the lane. The vehicle I was driving has a large digital clock so the time was readily apparent throughout. I sat behind the other vehicle for a considerible period of time. After waiting for the staff to hand the person their food to the person in front of me I watched as that vehicle sat in the drive through for another several minutes and talked with the restaurant staff. When I got to the window I inquired as to the wait. Their answer was that the previous customer had placed a large order and they only had one cook on duty. I asked why they didn’t have the person pull forward and why the continued delay even after they’d delivered the product. Their answer was they didn’t have enough help to get it done sooner. Neither the person at the window or the manager offered an apology for the wait. Both were non responsive and neither offered any explanation for why the pickup sat there for the additional time and didn’t receive any other items. I got an impression that I should have waited patiently no matter how long it took. Because of the extended length of time and rational offered by the Hardees staff and management I left the restaurant without the food. Opting to go somewhere else.

I am trying to support a local entity and have returned to the restaurant in the past even though the establishment has been dirty and unkempt; many of the staff are often rude and/or non-responsive; and service is routinely slow. Additionally, I understand teen culture, but perhaps your staff could tuck their shirts in, turn their side-turned caps forward, and learn to take a customers order in a timely manner rather than talking on their cell phones or with another group in the corner. I’m wondering how often an organization can regularly offer such sub-standard service and expect persons to return.

As a manager of a business in the same community I am sympathetic to those serving the public. It is not always easy. I understand the intricacies associated with customer service and appreciate the difficulty putting out a good product. I am empathetic with their plight, but what your staff offered was awful service and in the restaurant industry I’d assume that’s bad for business.

I have the opportunity to promote your business routinely when we bring groups in for in-services, training, and other related forums. I cannot in good conscience recommend to any of these individuals that they go to Hardees in Grafton for anything because it’s likely they will similarly get bad service. Nor can I suggest to any of our staff, volunteers, or affiliated agencies we work with to go to Hardees. Rather I’m inclined to share my experiences regarding the shoddy service and recommend that they go somewhere else.

I have never written a letter in response to such an incident, but was compelled to do such because of your staff’s antipathy and the substandard service received at the Hardees in Grafton, ND.

Why never to eat at Hardees
Posted by on
VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA -- I am completely outraged and horrified by my visit to Hardee's this evening. I went to the drive through at 6:30pm this evening. When I pulled up to the drive through there were 4 cars a head of me. I did not leave the drive through until 7:03pm. I ordered a thick burger combo and the 10 piece chicken with sides combo with green beans and mashed potatoes. When I finally got to the window, I was informed first that they did not have the proper chicken for my combo. Then I was notified that they were out of mashed potatoes and I would have to wait for them to make more. Then the girl comes back to let me know they were out of green beans and she would have to substitute it with something else and they did not have enough biscuits for what I ordered either. At this point, I was upset asked to speak to a manager because I had been in the drive through for over 25 minutes and my food was not even what I order. The manager, Dave, came to the window after take his sweet time, and completely disrespected me. I explained to him that I was dissatisfied with the service and he had the nerve to roll his eyes at me. This is completely unacceptable. If this is the example that a manager sets for your company, I am completely disgusted by what else your company must find acceptable as customer service. Not once did Dave offer an apology for the poor service or lack of quality food. I left after being in your drive through for more than 30 minutes which is the exact opposite of what any sane person could call fast.

I tried to call the complaint line listed on your restaurant. Instead of getting a district manager or someone who could help me, this manager Dave answers the phone. I would also like to note that the phone rang for over a minute before he ever answered the phone. When I asked for the name and number of district manager or someone above him to lodge a complaint, he replied that he didn't have that information nor would he give it to me if he did. So not only did this poor excuse of a manager give me terrible customer service in person, apparently it extends to his customer service over the phone.

I would appreciate if an intelligent and decent member of your company would call me. I do not care about apologies at this point. I want a full refund for this meal which was not correct when I got home. Furthermore, should your company be unwilling to give me a refund, I will pursue this matter with my bank which will result in a chargeback to your company.

If you would ever like to gain this customer back, I would expect this manager (DAVE) to be fired for his actions. It seems to me that a manager would be maintaining an adequate food supply and if a customer is dissatisfied, the manager would offer an apology at the very least. I promise to never again eat at any establishment owned or operated by your company until this matter has been resolved and I will be sharing my experience with anyone who listens. I am not expecting five star dining when I eat at fast food, but I do expect a minimum amount of respect and customer service.

Wow, I wouldn't know where to begin with this one so lets get on with it. You were stuck in the drive through for 30 minutes. It's happened to all of us, although not that long. One minute leads to five minutes, to ten minutes and longer and we can't get out of the line to go elsewhere. You get to the window and your order is royally messed up and you were disrespected by the manager. Now you want a full refund for your meal and the manager Dave fired for your experience? I'm sorry, it's not going to happen. On behalf of all the membership, thank you. We now know what location to avoid.

Getting pissed and cancelling your order I can see, but to become "completely outraged and horrified" over drive-through fast food service?
ladysaintly on 2007-08-29:
So there were four cars ahead of you at (what is generally) dinner time at a restaurant that posts highly visible signs letting you know that their Thickburgers take extra time to cook. No mention is made of whether the inside of the restaurant is busy. You wait, and then an employee tells you that they're having to make your food fresh rather than giving you the very last of what's under the heat lamp. You demand to see a manager, who you say took his "sweet time" getting to you as though it was personal and having nothing do do with the fact that they were obviously busy and out of several items. You tell the frustrated manager how bad his establishment is and can't believe that he would roll his eyes. Exactly what did you say to the manager? Later you go home and are dismayed that they might be, you know, working or something rather than sitting by the phone waiting to talk to the guy who just reamed them out.

Sometimes, a little bit of understanding is all that's needed. Trying to get a working man fired is a pretty serious desire. How petty to want someone to have to go home and tell his family that they're about to be strapped for cash because some moron in the drive through had a temper tantrum. Sheesh.

Or you could just not go there anymore.
vader1013 on 2007-12-16:
maybe you could have walked your thickburger twelve piece mashed potato eatin' butt inside... if you could pry your big butt out of the car.
calling for someone's termination b/c you can't get your carb fix is exactly what's wrong with the world today. get your money back and go elsewhere and shut up.

I'm in disbelief over the attack on this woman. She's completely right! Drive through time for Hardee's is 2:30 seconds. Yes wait litlle bit. Longer for dinner items but 30 mins?! And what do you all think about the manager acting that way? Was that OK too? And I'm not an unhappy customer. I actually work there.
Shane on 2014-02-09:
Pathetic. That manager gets paid minimum wage if that after all the hours he works. He deals with dumb employees and dumb customers like you, each one thinking the fast food industry revolves around them. People like you take "the customer is always right" a little too seriously. Guess what it's a marketing strategy not a law of physics, moron. You're not right, ever, in fact, because for all your whining you have no idea what's going on in that restaurant. His mother could have died. He could have just woke up on the wrong side of the bed. It boils down to, he's not perfect. Are you? No. Have you ever had a bad day at work? Yes. Do you think you deserved to be fired? No of course not, but he does right? Idiot, are you better than him?

You are a simple minded, arrogant fool who takes that 3 minutes of power granted by "the customer is always right" and turns it into a power trip worse than hitler. You need to check your head.

I would've rolled my eyes at you too. In fact, I am rolling my eyes at you, and if I'd've been there, I'd have said a lot worse. Grow up, on behalf of all food chains that must put up with your kinds' nonsense.

Disgusting, sexually explicit, and distasteful Hardees commercials.
Posted by on
KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE -- Recent ads by Hardees restaurants are sexually explicit, disgusting, and very distasteful. How anyone could want a hamburger after these ads is beyond my understanding. I have given Hardees very little of my business since I heard a radio commercial a few months ago that had a teenage boy describing to another teenager how he and his girlfriend got to "make out" all because she could not resist the juice from the burger running down his face. But the latest is the final straw for me. During last Wednesday night's American Idol that I watch with my young daughter's, a Hardees ad came on that casts a beautiful blond wearing only a man's dress shirt and panties. While she moved seductively and spoke with breathy words and moans as if she were seducing a man, she of course was eating a Hardees thickburger. I will be writing the Hardees Company to let them know of my disgust with them and that they have lost my business and that of my family, and I will be sharing with my friends how distasteful their ads have become.

As of today, the Hardees website is playing the lewd commercial I have described. Please use caution especially if you have children in your home. You can see for yourself just how far they have gone overboard. I went to the Hardees site to send a complaint, but due to the high volume of complaints, you cannot contact them via the web site. The comment section is currently "unavailable". But you can email Hardees at pr@ckr.com or call them at 1-877-799-STAR to voice your concern. Please help me to get Hardee's attention by putting out an alert to launch a full scale boycott of Hardees restaurants. I went to the American Family Association website to let them know about this and ask for their help at www.afa.net. Another consumer concern site is my3cents.com. Thanks for your help and concern. Robert

I haven't seen this ad,but I don't know of a Hardees in CA.
Anonymous on 2007-05-28:
I saw the ad and it is just a take off from the Paris H. one where she was doing the car. This new one at least has a good-looking girl. I don't really see why it would make me want a Hardees burger but what ever. I do think you should think about what you are saying though, "During last Wednesday night's American Idol that I watch with my young daughter's"

Now how can you talk about a stupid ad while sitting in front of the TV and watching a sexually explicit, disgusting, and very distasteful program like American Idol that promotes Idolatries? Isn't that the "pot calling the kettle black?"

Lidman step down from you soap box. The membership is growing tired of your constant self righteous tirades and non-sequitur meandering posts of nonsense.

Number1svc, if I have it all straight Carl's Jr. bought Hardee's so they could expand east. If you get the Carl's Jr. commercials where you live they really make you NOT want to eat a Carl's Jr. burger. It looks like the Carl's Jr. influence has taken over the ad's at Hardee's. The older Carl's Jr. ad's had people slurping drinks with burger parts falling down the front of them. Very disgusting ad's. I just watched the Hardee ad on their web site, somewhat provocative for sure if were talking about the girl in the white shirt on the web site.
imjustasteph on 2007-05-28:
Hardees has decided to turn their market to men. Notice how they have used lines like 'not for little boys so they don't come with little toys'? The idea is to lug in the men. And yes, sex sells.

And I'd have to be desperate to eat there.

OK I've seen the Carls Jr commercial with Paris(jailbird)Hilton.She is annoying,and yes it does not make me want a CJ's burger.

OK I just saw the commercial on the Hardees website(It is basically a carls jr.),and I was into it until she ate an onion.YUCK! Onions!

I wonder what Carl Karcher thinks of all this? He built a great family based fast food chain. Then the corporate idiots came along and took it over. Now we have terrible ad's running, food is no longer as good and out here there is nobody working in a Carl's Jr. that speaks English anymore!

Stew, being a Canadian you would not understand the way us Americans think, I will except your lack of knowledge.

In no way was I making a speech of violent denunciation just a suggestion. As to the last part of your “statement” I'm guessing that the word you are using here non sequitur, although I don't think it necessarily applies here. Non sequitur is a Latin term meaning "does not follow" (which makes sense if we notice the relationship between "sequitur" and "sequence"). In a written argument, a non sequitur is a fallacy that occurs when the conclusion does not follow logically from the premises, or to put it another way, when the evidence does not support the claim? In my statement if you could follow, the logic starts and end in the same way thereby making perfect sense.

I hope this has enlightened your limited knowledge of the way Americans think. Sorry we just don't think like French Canadians.

The Herbal Essences commercials must give you a stroke, then, with all that orgasmic moaning....
Nohandle on 2007-05-28:
I want to see the link to the actual commercial. Sparticus, where are you?
adzidek on 2007-05-28:
You know, Lidman, I had some respect for you until you just stereotypically lumped all Canadians together in your last statement. Never pegged you for a bigot; guess I was wrong. Maybe you should put some more thought into the social impact of your words and not just their dictionary definitions. I may not be a French Canadian, but a Canadian nonetheless, and I take offense to your ignorant comment.

By the way, next time you post something, if you're too stupid to check the grammar yourself, have Word do it for you. Your post is littered with lack of punctuation, fragmented & run-on sentences, and even a spelling mistake a 5th grader wouldn't make ("except" should be "accept"). Take a hard look at yourself before you criticize others' work.

All of these ads are, in essence, a take-off on the scene in 'When Harry Met sally,' where Sally proves to her boyfriend she can fake orgasm. Very funny routine, especially when the lady tells the waitress she will have what Sally had, ROFLMAO. It just an ad, get over it! Madison Avenue found out years and years ago, sex sells. Read some books on advertising, and your eyes will be opened to things like artists airbrushing the word 'sex' into the ice in a picture of a mixed drink in a booze ad, and the like. I have seen some ads that I could see how they might offend one or two people, but I realize that the majority will just take it in stride. They don't have anything in these ads that is any sexier than in the programs they sponsor. The aim is to get you to remember the product, plain and simple.

First of all Stew is the one who hates Canadians and French if you followed the site maybe you wouldn’t act like an idiot and write what you just did. As far as you having me pegged as a bigot or anything else you don’t know me son. But if I said something about Canadians that you took wrong then I guess you are making me look right, eh?

And now you want to start talking about grammar, punctuation, fragmented & run-on sentences let me remind you I am not here for your pleaser and I don’t care weather you like it or not. If I want to write a paper to a professor then I will worry about that. But as long as I am just typing on here I don’t care.
Now maybe you should take a look at yourself before you stick your foot in that big Canadian mouth.

No, its orgaSMic, as in moaning as if one is having an orgasm. The ingredients may be organic, but the moaning is definitely....not...lol
adzidek on 2007-05-29:
You're right, Lid, you're not here for my "pleaser" (moron). But next time you attempt to give an informal English class based on what someone else wrote, maybe you could take a few ESL classes first. I don't resort to insulting people based on where they live - if you want to do that, that's your prerogative. But I will call a spade, a spade: you have the intelligence of a Neanderthal, and everyone here can see it, "son".
Sarah May on 2007-05-29:
adzidek, Lidman was kidding. There's a Canadian joke just about everywhere Lidman and Stew have traveled and while it may not be amusing to others, it's really not meant to be offensive.
adzidek on 2007-05-29:
I know, Sarah May; but I guess I just found it aggravating that someone who is essentially calling Canadians dumb, is unable to form a coherent sentence, especially while correcting something someone else wrote. I may have overreacted, but I have no respect for someone who says things like "son" and "pleaser". You, on the other hand, are always a pleasure to read :).
Anonymous on 2007-05-29:
Sarah May - You shouldn't marginalize Lidman's xenophobia, bigotry and rabid over self gratification. Yes, it's easy to have sympathy for an old crank strapped with a colostomy bag and chronic foot halitosis but by encouraging such behavior you only make yourself an 'Enabler'. Sometimes the best medicine is a little tough love.
Sarah May on 2007-05-29:
Hahaha, okay. Next time I'll just observe.
Anonymous on 2007-05-29:
Sarah May, thank you and I would say you should see the stuff Stew writes about Canadian and French people he really does hate them. Also he is a coward in the first degree not to mention a phony!

Adzidek, You are a moron and the first Canadian I really don’t like and you can kiss my butt. Next time I feel like doing anything I will weather you like it or not! As I recall you first came on here INSULTING people, there complaints and there spelling, idiot. If you can’t take a joke then all I can say is you are one and you to can google your words just like your buddy Stew!

Now you freaking coward why didn’t you answer my email? And your intelligence is that of a snow monkey and/or a Yack! Little sunny boy, punk!

Stew (05/24/2007)
Its stuff like this which makes me avoid Canada and anything Canada related. I think Canada should have its status as a sovereign country revoked. I'd be very interested in contributing to any cause that explored finding a way to evict them from the North American continent as well. And by that I mean causing a tectonic plate shift that would result in Canada splitting off from the rest of this fine continent and drifting off somewhere to be forgotten...much like Iceland or Ireland. They could call it poopieland.

Go burn down the doctor's house that screwed up your eyes. Sight is a precious thing to be fooling around with.


Stew (05/09/2007)
ejack - That's just stupid. Arson is a crime and if someone is killed in the commission of that crime then they'd be looking at capital murder. In Georgia the chances are good that means DEATH row. I find your advice and advocating of possible suicide to be reckless, ill conceived and not at all star worthy.
adzidek on 2007-05-29:
OK, just keep writing things like "weather you like it or not"(whether), and "there complaints and there spelling"(their), and "butty". I thought you were just plain stupid, but now I see that I'm actually dealing with a 14-year-old pre-pubescent skid mark who's testicles haven't yet descended. This conversation is as over as your failed attempt at a high-school education. By the way, I didn't receive your email - maybe you should read "E-mail for Dummies". You'll figure it out - I have faith in you.

You are truly a jerk in the first degree! Not to mention you don't work for a living and I am not impressed at all with your only claim to fame, a lowest of the low in educational degrees a "Liberal Arts", so you can spell. What does that make you? An idiot in Canada where you will stay for the rest of your un-natural life and like your new buddy Stew, when the power goes out you are yet another burden on the human race because you can't do anything else besides try and insult people.

And it’s over when I say its over! Pissant!

Grumble pants! All of you! I'd bet that if you met by chance under different circumstances, you'd be friends. (That's just an observation. Heh.)

I agree with Robert from Knoxville. Hardees Commercial is down right wrong. It has no class and shows no moral value. Hardees commercial looks like they are selling sex and not burgers. What a shame. I no longer am interested in eating at Hardees especially after I viewed their recent commercial


Sammy Lynn Morris on 2012-02-29:
This is TOO MUCH!!!. You may get more teenagers or dirty old men coming in to buy any burger that could render that kind of results. However, those of us with good common sense, scrupples and any morals will avoid spending our hard to come by money at any Hardees in our area...we will be sure to remind the Sunday Morning Pre-Church crowd about this right away. Until Hardees pulls and stops running this type of provocative ad, we believe an empty parking lot will speak loudly.
Tracy on 2012-11-19:
I am so sick and tired of seeing sexually explicit commercials. This is getting way out of hand. It will only get worse, when will it end? Where is the stopping point? Oh, I know, it can only stop at total nudity... WTH!!!!!!! If I see another commercial like that from Hardee's I will never eat there again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lisa Lax on 2013-12-17:
This ad just teaches children in homes that it is OK for their father's to lust after, gawk and cheat or their wives. Very distasteful and we continue to mistreat women more and more everyday in America. We have gone backwards instead of forwards. Women are looked upon as 3rd class citizens and sex objects . Very saddened by this. I hope this put Hardee's out of business. I thought it was a family restaurant.
Traya Millop on 2014-01-05:
Hardees ads are DISGUSTING! Do they think teenage boys are the only people that eat fast food? I'm going to Wendys. Hardees advertising agents don't have a clue....maybe Hardees hired animals to come up with these ads???

Hardees Sexual Ads Are Repulsive & Degrading to Humans!

CLEVELAND, TENNESSEE -- It doesn't matter what city & state the restaurants are in, their crude ads have sent me elsewhere to eat. What? Do they want us to come into their restaurants & dress & act like their ads? Do they want their customers to make out on their tables? Maybe they expect their employees to put on an x rated show for us? NO THANK YOU, HARDEES....You've lost my business.

I totally agree the ads are way too explicit!!! Children watching TV see these commercials that should not even be fit for late night regular TV. It is sad this is the only way they think they can sell their products. The cod sandwich commercial should be X rated. I will not give my money to Hardees anymore.

Turkey Burgers Frozen

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I was recently at a Hardee's on Piney Grove Rd., Columbia, SC trying to order a turkey burger. When I placed my order I had to wait 10 minutes. Then I was told that they could not fix me one because the meat was frozen. Also I was told that so few people ordered them that they did not unfreeze the meat. If they are not going to serve a turkey burger, it should not be on the menu. Also, it should not be one of the very, very large pictures on your website.

Have you contacted the restaurant about the missing sandwich? They may not follow things on here and not see your post. A quick call may resolve the issue.

Also, you may want to take your personal information off the post for safety's sake.
