The food delivery driver then left and drove past the “mental” queue of at least 34 cars, which was backed up right to the roundabout. In the video he also claims they had “turned the machine off” in KFC.

The video was posted on Saturday with the caption ‘KFC drive-thru queue – delivery only through the Uber (Eats) app on Sunday’. It has since been shared over 390 times and has around 700 comments.
