Crap In The Box

What good is a blog if you can't use it to bludgeon some soulless novelty food corporation for an (most likely) accidental defiance of their own code of standards?

But sweet jeebus - this thing looks like something out of an episode of CSI:

Jack In The Box Sucks Jack In The Box Sucks (1)
Jack In The Box Sucks (6) Jack In The Box Sucks (3)

I've taken the rare step of actually calling the 800 number on their receipts, wading through their electronic swamp of a survey system (but hey, I might win $10,000! UH HUH!) and filling out an online form. I'm actually curious to see how a major foodcorp handles this kind of failing in their sales operations - is it as simple as a "sorry bout that, here's a couple of coupons", or is Jack keepin' my $6.34?
