Chick-Fil-A just gave the best gift to a woman who gave birth in one of their restaurants
I don't know about you guys, but most of my greatest experiences in life have revolved around fast food. some of my happiest moments have been biting into a juicy burger, stuffing french fries into my mouth, or taking a pretty girl out for dinner. That might say more about the quality of my existence than anything, but fast food has been good to me.
Imagine if fast food continued to play such a big role in my life, should anything actually good happen to me in my life? There've been people out there who've celebrated 50 years together in a Burger King, sick dogs living out their final days with a lifetime supply of burgers: now, a woman's given birth in a Chick-Fil-A.
When Gracelyn Griffin grows up, many years from now, she'll be able to say something that very few people will be able to say: her first few hours of existence were spent in a Chick-Fil-A, the distinct smell of fried chicken permeating her freshly-developed nostrils. But how exactly did that happen?
Believe it or not, this is not a modern-day version of the classic nativity scene, where her parents Robert and Falon 'Maggie' Griffin were turned away from every inn, only for a chicken restaurant to take pity on them. That would have been neat. Instead, the expecting couple were on the way to the hospital after Falon started to experience contractions.
They were dropping off their other two daughters at a nearby chicken establishment, deep in the night. Falon was already in labor, and needed to use the bathroom before they headed to the hospital. In a now-viral Facebook post, Robert recounted the story of his daughter's birth in a Chick-Fil-A.
It was 10pm, and as such, Chick-Fil-A was already closed, but "after banging on the glass, the staff answered the door and let Maggie in". So Robert went to offload the kids into a friend's car, but when he returned to the restaurant, he had a bit of a predicament on his hands.
"The manager said 'she’s in the restroom and she’s screaming'. So there we were.....my wife and I in a tiny stall in the bathroom, and I could see the top of our little girls head crowning as Maggie was straddling the toilet. I told Maggie, 'sweetie, we are gonna have to do this right here, right now'."
So, Robert and Maggie were forced to improvise. But they pulled through, and Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin was brought to the world that day. "Her birth certificate reads 'Born in Chick-Fil-A' and The hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician," Robert revealed, and that's not all, either.
As a reward for being born in a Chick-Fil-A, Gracelyn will be granted free nuggets from the restaurant for life. Not only that, but she's also got her first birthday party there coming up as well, and once Gracelyn reaches 14 years old, she'll also have a guaranteed job at one of the many various branches at Chick-Fil-A.
Pretty neat, huh?
