That’s what happened recently after the company’s social media team posted this to its Twitter account:

That’s when things got a bit chippy:

@NHride Where do you store cold things that aren’t frozen?

Thuggy-D then brought McDonald’s into the conversation:

@NHride You don’t have to bring them into this just because you forgot refrigerators existed for a second there.
