The Hall County teen was working the drive-thru Wednesday when a car pulled up with a 6-year-old choking inside. So, the teen jumped in to help.

“I’m still kind of shocked right now myself that all this has happened," Logan Simmons said.

Simmons' mother said that to her son, it was just all in a day's work.

"He'd been home for a couple of hours and he said nonchalantly, ‘I saved a kid’s life today,’ and I was like, ‘What?’" mother Teri Simmons said.

"I just jumped out the window and ran straight down to the car," Logan Simmons said. “I think it was the quickest option. It was right there and I saw the other car right there.”

Outside the restaurant, the teen jumped into the car in the drive-thru lane and where the boy’s mother was begging for help, with her son’s seat belt somehow tangled around his neck.

“You could see he was turning red and losing pigmentation in his face," Logan Simmons said.

[b]Simmons pulled out a pocketknife,[/b] cut the boy free and prevented a possible tragedy.

“I’m amazed he didn’t panic. As his mother, I would have panicked. I’d be running around going, 'Oh my gosh! What do we do?'” Teri Simmons said.

An hour later, the boy’s mother called Logan Simmons and thanked him for saving her son’s life.

“I do feel like a hero," he said.

In the UK, the boy would have been dead for sure.

Women, even strong independent women, will always defer to men in a crisis. I've witnessed enough to know this.

This kid handled it perfectly and didn't freeze up. He definitely has the first responder instinct in him.

RE: The Chick-fil-A thread
Women have an ability to stand around shouting for someone to run to the aid of another and label it sacrifice. They are wonderful at saying,

"My God, would someone please dive in to save that poor baby duck?!"
"My God, would someone please push this beached mammal back into the ocean?!"
"My God, would someone please lower themselves into that sewer and get that cat?!"
"My God, would someone please walk out onto that ice and pull that deer out?!"
"My God, would someone please lift that log and release that poor raccoon?!"

Women will literally stand around and watch something die while pacing and fretting at the tragedy unfolding in real time before their eyes. Doing nothing, expecting a random man to risk his life to save the day, and call it even. Woman saw the situation, yelled for help for 15 minutes while the victim fought against the current, man jumps in and saves the day, woman believes she played an equal part in the rescue.

As for the five seemingly random examples of female inaction, they're references to videos of people (ie, men) saving animals that I was able to rattled off the top of my head.

It's funny how these LGBT advocates on twitter speak for the entire country as if they're the authority. Canadian KFC is shit, so I'm sure Chick-fil-A will do well.

In China, KFC is the biggest fast food joint. BUT THEY DON'T HAVE <b>POUTINE!!!</b>

I won't get back to TO until next August, but I am curious enough to taste-test some Chick-Fil-A sandwiches.

RE: The Chick-fil-A thread
You know Chik Fil A food is good, but its just a chicken sandwich. And their fries are waffle fries, which are more like chips than fries.

The service on the other hand is extraordinary, and that may be an understatement. In addition, the stores are a little bit cleaner, and a little bit nicer and have amenities like nicer play areas for kids.

Somehow Chick Fil A has convinced women mostly that its not fast food and that its healthy. They want to believe its healthy so they tell themselves it it.

It's the salt from the liberal tears that gives Chick Fil A sandwiches the extra zing.

RE: The Chick-fil-A thread
I really like Chick Fil-A, even though some of the items are over priced. The taste is usually very good.

My university had this program run by the undergrads that would sell Whataburger, Chick Fil-A, Dominoes and other items in the student center from 8PM to 12PM on discounted prices. A Spicy Chick Fil-A sandwich was just 4$ and was perfect post evening gym or during late night study prep.

The freaking students who were part of this setup decided that Chick Fil-A supports Anti-LGBT organizations and removed it starting this Fall. I was pissed off because I loved those sandwiches. Some of the old Alums, when they heard of this , also wrote scathing remarks on the University FB groups. But since it is a student run organization, the students win. The university Admin leadership didn't even have the balls to intervene.

Anyway, any day, I am going to troll the student sellers and say 'where's chick Fil-A?'. If they say they don't carry it anymore, then I am going to pretend and ask why and whether students didn't like it? (most students loved it). I just want to see them explain to me, an International student, the whole thing. Then I am going to start trolling them further by asking them ridiculous questions that make complete logical sense but will trigger them or cause cognitive dissonance.

Reading Chick-fil-A outlet to close in LGBT rights row

[Image: _109240441_chickfila.jpg]

Quote:A US fast-food chain will cease trading at its first UK outlet amid a row over donations to anti-LGBT groups.

Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October.

A spokeswoman for the centre said "the right thing to do" was to not extend the restaurant's lease beyond the "six-month pilot period".


Chick-fil-A said its donations were purely focused on youth and education.

The family-owned company, founded in Atlanta in 1967, is one of the biggest fast-food chains in the USA and boasts about 2,400 outlets across North America.

According to US news website Think Progress, in 2017 the Chick-fil-A Foundation donated millions of dollars to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Paul Anderson Youth Home and the Salvation Army.

Campaigners from LGBT organisation, Reading Pride, said all three organisations have a reputation of being hostile to LGBT rights.

In 2012, the company's chairman sparked a US boycott when he said he opposed gay marriage.

Campaign continues

The Oracle said: "We always look to introduce new concepts for our customers, however, we have decided on this occasion that the right thing to do is to only allow Chick-Fil-A to trade with us for the initial six-month pilot period, and not to extend the lease any further."

Reading Pride said The Oracle's decision was "good news", adding the six-month period was a "reasonable request... to allow for re-settlement and notice for employees that have moved from other jobs".

But the organisation said it would continue to campaign against the outlet until it left.

Chick-fil-A had previously told the BBC: "Our giving has always focused on youth and education. We have never donated with the purpose of supporting a social or political agenda.

"There are 145,000 people - black, white; gay, straight; Christian, non-Christian - who represent Chick-fil-A."

Guess who owns most chicken places in UK? Muslims and they're not exactly LGBT friendly...why have we never seen these LGBT faggots protest Muslim owned businesses?

England has been pozzed for quite some time already. It's hardly surprising.

Note to self: buy some Chick-Fil-A on the way home from work tonight...

I just drove past the new Chick-Fil-A in Toronto on Yonge. There was a huge lineup outside.

Chick Fil A just needs to hold the line and never give in to the SJWs. No excuses.

God is blessing them. I read that they do something like 3x the business of the average McDonalds and are now I think the 2nd or 3rd largest fast food joint in the US. The food is good but part of their energy is people eating there as a statement.

Alterntive view is that thier first UK outlet was a flop regardless of the LGBT stuff and the company has willingly fallen on the sword this time to avoid the bigger hit to the brand of broadcasting any type of failure. The brand is seem as a massive success everywhere I don't believe it was the protests that made them go, more so a few weeks in the were getting weak sales and decided to close up early on the pilot. I say this because they were met with very big protests here in Toronto for thier new store, but ignored them because it's still lines up each day due to high demand.
