    Hmmm You may want to find a new hobby..and why keep going back when they keep "forgetting" your food? lol

    Hobby? It's called feeding your family when your out and busy all day. We eat at many different places, BK is the one place that always messes up our order. I was just stating my opinion about BURGER KING, seeing as how that is the place they were talking about in the story. Your not funny.

    This city is spiraling out of control crime wise. I used to not concealed carry as much but lately I find myself carrying every day with these sorts of headlines more frequently in our local news. It's very sad as I remember living here as a boy and not even having to lock your doors when you went out.

    I love the comment by vbbc2002..I was thinking the same thing when I read the story. I wonder who approves of the story before it sent to the public for reading?

    I love Burger King, hate the bad service though. They forgot my whopper JR yesterday and I had to go back. The time before that, they forgot my daughter's fry that went in her kids meal. I enjoy calling their survey number on the back of the receipts and giving them horrible ratings. I even get a free whopper for doing it :-)

    Sounds as if the police need to patrol the area around NC State more often, get out of the mall.

    Crime is getting out of control in Raleigh while municipal leaders do nothing worthwhile: http://triangle.johnlocke.org/blog/?p=2462
