Restaurant Switched From Crinkle-Cut, To Straight Fries And People Are Mad

Jim and Leslie Parsons own a little fast food joint called Bolley's Famous Franks in Waterville, Maine. They've been around since 1962.

 

 They bought it about a year ago, and they just made a big change: They switched from crinkle-cut to straight fries. Their new fries are about the same size as the ones at McDonald's.

 

 They said they did it because the machine that does the crinkle cutting keeps breaking down and the blades are really expensive. So they had to make the change.

  

But their customers are FURIOUS. Or, as they put it, quote, "disturbing and hostile."

 

 They've had people yelling at them. They've had people swearing at them. And Jim even had one guy try to FIGHT him.

 

 

So now, the Parsons are asking for people just to be peaceful . . . but they aren't planning to switch back to crinkle-cut.

The 38-year-old will be remembered at a funeral service in Waycross on Saturday.

A Waycross police report said the incident happened Aug. 10 along Knight Avenue. Dedrick Bacon's family says he was walking back from dinner with his three youngest children when his 4-year-old daughter ran into the roadway.

“On impact, he picked her up and threw her – and he took the hit for her,” Idella Bacon said.

Dedrick Bacon's injuries were severe. He was placed on life support, but he died 48 hours later.

The report said a witness told police that he saw a man grab the girl from the street, then get hit by a car.

Waycross police officers said they talked to the driver who hit Dedrick Bacon, whom they described as very upset. The driver reportedly told police that she was driving 40 mph at the time of the incident.

Idella Bacon was working at the hospital when she got a call that her brother had been rushed to the emergency room.

“Sad seeing him laying there, motionless – it’s just, I don’t know," she said. "It was just hard, really hard.”

She continued: “When I learned really what happened, it put ease to me. It put ease to my heart, my mind that he took the life for her. He took that hit for her. He saved her so she could be here longer and live her life.”

“That was him, that was the kind of person he was,” said Dedrick Bacon’s friend, Gary Franklin. “It made me smile because I know that’s something he would do, so I wasn’t surprised about it.”

Dedrick Bacon leaves behind four children. Idella Bacon and Franklin are asking for donations to support his family and contribute to a proper funeral service. 

A GoFundMe has been set up to assist the family with funeral expenses. To help the Bacon family, please click here.
