For when I need more than 140 characters to finish a thought on marketing, media or message.

Crank it up, Chick-fil-A!

Leave a comment

Over on my Tumblr, I’ve started a new series of sorts called “What I’m Googling” because I seem to spend much of my day Googling things that pop into my ADD-rattled brain.

Anyway, today’s post reads like this:

I’m googling this today after a co-worker — who isn’t cranky — mentioned it after hearing about it on television. More info here and here.

Chick-fil-A smells marketing opportunity. From the Ledger-Enquirer story:

The always optimistic folks at Chick-fil-A advise us via Twitter to buy cranky co-workers milkshakes.

If a milkshake doesn’t solve your problems, consult The Emily Post Institute for advice about dealing with crude-talking co-workers.

Sharyn, if you’re reading, I’ll take Cheetos. Or Taco Bell. Lady’s choice.

I LOVE how Chick-fil-A jumped on this “holiday.” Quick thinking!
