It’s bad enough to deal with the massive traffic that results from a hot fast food joint doing business near you: what if that same company plays music at odd hours of the night, making it impossible for people, who live nearby to sleep?

That’s what a TikToker named Nicole (@itsnicolechristine) said she was forced to endure by a Chick-fil-A location whose manager wouldn’t believe the music was playing at night. This prompted her to get out of bed at 2am and go to the restaurant to record how loud its speaker was.

She documented her journey, along with her chicken chain issues, in a series of TikToks: “I’m so mad right now and it’s not about a boy. It’s two in the morning and I’m sitting here listening to Chick-fil-A music again. The reason I’m so angry though is because yesterday I called and spoke to someone who assured me in a very rude manner that the music was off.”

However, that clearly wasn’t the case, and Nicole went on to outline her frustrating experience dealing with the Chick-fil-A representative about the constant music playing: “Actually, this guy said that’s the Nicole I talked to last week? Yes, ma’am, the music has been off since then.”

She then called out the “gaslighting” circuit for thinking the music was off when it clearly wasn’t: “It’s not Chick-fil-A trying to light me up. I have ears with which I hear things. So, we’re going to take a little trip to Chick-fil-A together.”

The video then cuts to Nicole with glasses on her eyes and the lights are turned off for her.

“Just a reminder, it’s 2 in the morning and they’re obviously playing this music to keep people off the patio, so if I come across anything fishy, ​​blame Chick-fil-A.” The clip then cuts to her pointing to a digital clock, which states it’s 2:01 in the morning, “Just so you can see the time, it’s 2:01, another minute of my life wasted on this.”

Nicole’s video then cuts to her dancing in front of the camera, “Come on Vamanos,” before she walks down the stairs to her seat and outside to head to the restaurant. “I’m literally so mad right now…I just pulled over in my car, yes I was driving because it’s cold outside…honestly I was a little scared of what I was going to find on that patio.”

She continues, “And what I found is the music that plays,” she half-sings, “Are you ready for this?” she asks, before recording the exterior of the Chick-fil-A restaurant in question, audio included.

She approaches a speaker outside the restaurant that was apparently blaring a saxophone version of Merry Christmas. She records herself dancing to the song, followed by another long blast again on a speaker.

When the camera pans back to her face, it’s clear that she no longer finds the joke funny because someone accidentally pulled over while she was pulling over to the holiday music.

“Somebody pulled up in the parking lot while I was doing that, and I immediately got in my car and drove off because I was terrified.”

Nicole then called out the chain for basically ignoring her pleas, stressing that she had been very patient in trying to get the chain to stop playing music at that particular location.

“I tried to figure it out in such a kind way, so many times you took so many nights away from me and at the end of the day I was basically yelled at and told I was crazy.”

After proving that it wasn’t and that the music was indeed played at odd hours of the night at the restaurant, she asked Chick-fil-A to listen to her: “Now, would you please turn your music down at night? Another wasted hour of my father. I’m going to go show that very video to the manager and let you know the response and hopefully the apology.”

She ended her video by walking back to her seat to close her eyes after stepping outside to collect proof that Chick-fil-A wasn’t picking up what she was leaving: “Now Chick-fil-A was my former favorite restaurant and I’m starting to see why. He’s lying,” she says to the camera as she covers her face with a pillow under a blanket.

“This is how I sleep tonight everyone. I’ll let you know tomorrow when I talk to the manager and hopefully he’ll be nicer to me once he finds out I wasn’t lying about the dumb music the whole time. Good night.”

People who have watched her saga about the Chick-fil-A spokesperson have mixed opinions about the outcome. There were those who thought that showing him she appreciated his efforts would be a good way to ensure that the music wouldn’t magically grow: “I’d send him a thank-you card. Active appreciation will keep him on your side if it happens again,” one person wrote.

Another said: “Step forward if you can’t hear the music tonight come back and thank the manager for helping with the problem.”

While others thought it was generally a lame move on the restaurant’s part to not make sure they didn’t play music late at night and disturb everyone in the immediate vicinity.

“I turned it down ‘for you’ like it’s not a public concern,” said one. another posted: “Why can’t they just turn it off at night”

How would you react to a fast food restaurant playing music at odd hours of the night that you can hear from your home? Would you call the police like some people have suggested?

Or will you put in earplugs and just stop?
