Two years ago in August my husband and I moved from Southern IN to Columbus, OH. Southern IN and Louisville (which was only 20 minutes from us) has Hardee's. There was one less than a half mile from our home. The breast commercial was showing then. I was an omni (though not without conscious; I would see the trucks with chickens headed to the Tyson plant and feel pity for them) and found them cute. MollyGoat made a good point about the woman thing.
I found the rest of the commercials gross, seeing that they also portrayed non-meat eaters (or at least those who don't eat at Hardee's) to be ignorant and wussy. Personally, I can't fathom feeding my baby a greasy, processed, fat laden hamburger to my child, in our out utero. Ew.
Maybe Hardee's isn't too keen on vegetarians. After all, we don't give them business. Usually. Last March I went to Florida with a group from school for hurricane releif work. At the advice of the pastor of the church who hosted us, we took state roads through Florida on the way home, which was actually kinda cool during the daylight. Because of the rualness, we stopped at a Hardee's, the main driver was concerned that we may not find anything else for awhile. At the disgust of the other vegetarian (who helped inspire me to change) and I there was nothing but meat and fries and milkshakes on the menu. Because I was hungry and at the end of my transitioning, I ordered a hamburger and fries combo. EW
I felt ill the rest of the evening. (To be fair, earlier I had had a not nice phone conversation with my husbnad earlier that evening and I know my seatmate, the other veg, heard because he heard and asked if everything was okay and offered an ear, which I declined then, not sure if I wanted the rest of the groups to hear my marital problems.) That grease did not agree with me. I filled out the comment card and emailed them after I got home. I never heard from them. My friend also filled out the comment card at the restaurant. I never asked if he heard from them either. I probably told them that I would never eat there again, which, living in Columbus, isn't too hard. (I have plenty of vegetarian friendly restaurants in the city, including my own kitchen.
) There's a Hardee's in my husband's small hometown, but it's not the only option, especially since I have a MIL who does her best to accomodate my choices.
Just my experiences....
