So he's suing the chain for wasting his time, WTVC reported.

It was a menu item that no doubt ruined many a Popeyes' employee's day as staff were reportedly forced to work hours of overtime to meet the massive demand.

Crag Barr of East Ridge, Tennessee is challenging the company, accusing Popeyes of false advertising, deceptive business practices and causing him to waste "countless time driving" to and from local chains to find the sandwich.

A group of men pulled out a gun at Popeyes because it was out of chicken sandwiches, employees claim. Popeyes promises they're working on bringing back these sold out chicken sandwiches soon. "It just consumes you".

The sandwich wars waged on Twitter began August 19, when Chick-fil-A appeared to take a jab at the new fried chicken sandwich that Popeyes had begun offering this month. For all of his troubles, agony, and inability to get the chicken sandwich to see what all the hype was about, he's seeking $5,000 in damages. Social media was abuzz following the announcement of the new sandwich, in part prompted by a tongue-in-cheek online feud with its fast-food competitor, Chick-fil-A, according to CBS News.
