I've heard of some story. At the Jack-in-the-Box on Fullerton nr Kimball. This I heard took place in 1973. A customer was so irate at the muffled sound relay system, That he literally punched the translite Jack & It shattered. Wow, Talk about "Anger Management", Gee whiz....... Even if i'm not a fan of such, If forced for some oddball reason. Maybe only in some extremes.

This website & forum has to do with things pertaining to Chicago or Chicagoland. What you were promoting was a more national & unrelative subject.

It was probably one of the most putrid odors around, As opposed to the Blommer Chocolate Factory, Proctor & Gamble (which was down 1200 W.North), Reed Candy co, Gonnella bakery, etc.
