skinink: Blacks don't tip? Neither does a table full of women who needs extra plates because they will split the appetizer between them, and who only want glasses of water. Cheapskates. Please, take you and your girlfriends to the packy and buy some wine you can take back to someone's apartment to drink. But don't take up one of my tables so you can eat cheap and tip cheap as well, and on top of it monopolize my time so I can't serve my other tables.


Perhaps less skin ink equals more tips? That and the daggers coming from your eyes when they sit down because you know they are going to order lemon water. Perhaps your host could sit them next to the kitchen door, as that seems to be the super awesome seat they try to stick my wife and I into constantly (I have an ugly face). It is sooo much fun to have to duck forward everytime a server comes by and listen to who did who in the walk-in. Takes me back 15 years lol. Also reminds me of why I don't work food service anymore and how unbelievably petty and juvenile that whole scene can be and why one has to pick thru your food before you eat it.

Passive Aggressive Larry: kellynoel: Last summer my bestie and I went on a road trip. Somewhere in Georgia we stopped at a drive through and got two double cheeseburger meals. It was six dollars and change. We were shocked. She even took a pic of the receipt and put it on Facebook.

So you got two double cheeseburgers, two fries, and two drinks for around 6 dollars, and that's somehow not a good a deal anymore? What is it supposed to cost to get that much food? It seems like about a dollar per item is just right. You each had a quick, hot meal made for you for 3 dollars a piece, and you didn't have to get out of your car.

I'm not sure if we Americans are just spoiled, or if no one in this country has ever heard of inflation. Is being able to buy a double cheeseburger for less than a dollar supposed some sort of inalienable right?

Look at that ad someone posted where the guy got all of the food for $4.00, it sounds like such a great deal right? As if, my god, there was some glorious time in this country when a cheeseburger cost a quarter and everybody was living large on just a few bucks a day. Except then you realize that $4 then is about $16 today.

And hey, I'm just going to go out on a limb here and make a wild prediction: fast food is going to continue to get more expensive. Just like everything else.


Um, she thought it was a good deal Larry. ever heard of Vietnam Larry?

Y'know, I lived through the 70s, and I was a kid, which means that I really liked my McDonalds (even though back then, if you dared ask for a plain burger, they gave you the death-stare, and had to write your order down on a little slip of paper to give to the grill person, which slowed the line down considerably). That ad says that you can get four complete meals (burgerlike substance, fries, and drinklike substance) for under four dollars. I think I need to call bullshiat on this. Perhaps someone has a link to the full McD menu from the Seventies? I could only find some references to burger prices.

Nah, it's a perspective trick. He's holding it out at arm's length, so it's REALLY close to the camera lens, while his face is farther back, creating the illusion that the burger is really large. In reality, he's just a guy with tiny hands holding a normal burger, long arms, and a large head.
