Anger as overexcited “subhuman scum” leave KFC car park looking like a WAR ZONE in end-of-lockdown spree

People have expressed their disgust after images of KFC packaging left strewn across the road emerged as restaurants reopen across the UK. Wayne Hood took to Twitter to share his outrage at finding the rubbish lying around in Bury, Greater Manchester. He shared the "unbelievable" photos and gained a huge response, with hundreds of people replying in agreement.

Mr Hood said: "We as a race are disgusting (some of us). I’ve worked all... through this lockdown as a key worker. Never seen the place so clean". He added: "You open a few shops... And let your customer’s [sic] Leave car park in a state like this overnight. Shocking behaviour."

Lockdown has not ended.

Good point, Jacob.

That was in Manchester which is 'up North', what do you expect?

War zones tend to have semi-complete corpses lying about the place, rather than a modest amount of paper packaging.

You are not suggesting there has been hyperbole?

Ebadlun - 20 May 2020 00:37:52 (#6 of 88)

More hyperbole than all the matter in every conveivable multiverse combined. x2.

Just a tad, then

It's like a thermonuclear war. Literally.

Try telling that to the chickens!

Now I’m thinking about the chickens in Eraserhead.

The mindset that goes with that behaviour is encouraged by the ads. The ad industry has been pretty quick to churn out CV 19 related images and themes.

A particularly obscene one is a heavily pregnant woman selling a financial product for Nationwide. Did anyone ask the fetus for permission to exploit its form?

The photos clearly show that the bins were overflowing. Why don't KFC put bigger bins (or even skips) outside their outlets, given that their products seem to come with so much packaging?

Winner - 20 May 2020 07:08:32 (#13 of 88)

Why do they bother with packaging at all, why not just fill troughs?

barkis - 20 May 2020 07:42:19 (#14 of 88)

No news in London then?

Gotout - 20 May 2020 07:54:21 (#15 of 88)

#12 If you put bigger bins out the poor dears wouldn't be able to waddle that far, much easier to simply drop it next to the car.

darkhorse - 20 May 2020 07:58:25 (#16 of 88)

Why is the Northern press SILENT about this? It takes the London Standard to fearlessly expose such slovenliness?!

Could have finished there really.

Others agreed, with a user called Robert saying: "Should be made to put your details (car reg/name on the packaging) for future reference".

he has nailed it

Not very PC but I would kill for a visit to McD's/KFC/BK. And I would put my trash in the bin responsibly.

I went through the Tyne Tunnel, yesterday, on my bike. Slightly ahead, in the adjacent lane, a McDonald's cup flew out, followed by sundry wrappers, boxes and a plastic bottle.

It was one of those Dacia jeeps and when we exited, I passed it and observed that the driver was a well dressed woman, of about 30.
