Msian shares heartwarming story of KFC manager in Ipoh
On April 20, 2022, Malaysian Ah Liang took to his Facebook account to share a touching story he encountered in Ipoh.
This true story began when Liang left a pub at 1:30 a.m. in Ipoh. “Short walk back and saw KFC opposite the hotel still open. I went to order take out. The staff told me they were closed but the sign says closing at 2am. All chickens were also removed from the heated display. Aiyah,” he shared.
After protesting a bit, the manager agreed and made her an order of a Snack Plate meal with coleslaw, mashed potatoes, and Pepsi. “Very nice of him and when I wanted to pay he said no worries and didn’t take my card. I asked if he was sure but he insisted,” he added. Surprised by the manager’s kind gesture, Liang left a tip of RM10 in the box.
“I mean, the guy still packed the meal with respect, (with) bells and whistles, even though he knew he wasn’t going to charge me for it. I went back to my room and got settled. The meal was perfectly fine; chicken and mash (was) still warm, coleslaw cold. Prime,” he expressed his gratitude.
After that, her phone rang and it was a number starting with 03 from Puchong. “I don’t usually answer these calls, but the number rang again immediately, so this time I picked up. It was from the bank,” he said. Apparently he had left his card at KFC and the manager called the bank to let him know about the matter.
The bank then announced that it would cancel the card. “Turns out the KFC manager then asked the bank to try to call me before canceling in case I needed to use the card as it was late. Well, that’s what the bank told me anyway. Wow,” Liang said.
After telling the bank that he would go to KFC and call back in ten minutes, the KFC manager was there at the branch to return his card as scheduled. “How about that for service AND initiative, huh?” Liang added.
