It seems people will do anything for a good deal! For Osmow's National Shawarma Day, the line ups to order were huge and people were waiting for over an hour at some locations. Some even had to stand out in the rain to get their hands on a wrap or chicken on the rocks for just $5.
The deal was to celebrate the first-ever National Shawarma Day on October 15, a holiday that Osmow's created.
When you combine cheap food and the fact that it's only available at that price for one day, it's likely that people will show up.
Add in strict COVID-19 rules about capacity limits and physical distancing, it's no surprise that lines were out the door and wait times were high.
People took to Twitter to talk about what happened on National Shawarma Day and some questioned whether it was all worth it.
There's nothing more saddening than going somewhere and then realizing there's a huge line. We feel your pain!
This person took a sarcastic jab at Osmow's for how many people were inside the restaurant either waiting for their food or placing orders.
Not worth it
Isn't it the worst feeling when you wait so long for something and it doesn't live up to expectations? While some people enjoyed their food on the national day, this person's chicken on the rocks was "totally not worth it."
National Shawarma Day got the meme treatment with this tweet that jokes about how many wraps Osmow's workers probably had to make.
Long wait and no chicken
A double whammy! Waiting for two hours and then only having veggies in your chicken shawarma wrap has got to be majorly disappointing.
40 people waiting
Now, this is a lot of people lined up. However, there was a limit of five per customer so maybe those people got other kinds of shawarma.
Even Uber Eats had long waits
If you thought people should've order delivery instead of waiting in line, even Uber Eats orders took a long time to get to people.
More stressful than the airport
This seems like the perfect way to describe the long wait times people experienced on National Shawarma Day.
Not envious at all
This person didn't line up to get the $5 deal but they seem pretty embarrassed for all the people who waited in the rain for an hour.
Out in the rain
Here's the flip side of that last tweet. This person did wait in line while it was raining and they don't seem particularly happy about it.
While this person appreciated the deal, their suggestion makes sense. Maybe next year will be better!
