(THE PEARCEY REPORT) -- As I begin writing, Nancy, Michael, and I just finished off three Chick-fil-A meals for lunch. It was a late lunch. Around 3 o'clock.
I drove to a near-by Chick-fil-A and paid for the meals at 2:36 pm, Texas time. Sugar Land, be more precise. Near Houston. The cost was $21.03.
Up front in the ordering area was a steady stream of people selecting their meals. While waiting for my order to be filled, I counted the number of folks in the line closest to me, and there were 12 in it. There were other lines, but I didn't count the number of customers in them.
