Great Janitor: Bathia_Mapes: Great Janitor: Zulu_as_Kono: Great Janitor: I was also asked to leave and never return.

This, my friends, is that rare beast - not a troll, but a persona.

Like you've never been asked to leave and never return to a place of business? I am barred one a dollar movie theater, two Walmarts, one vegetarian restaurant and one Olive Garden.

I guess I must live a very boring life. I've managed to make it to the age of 60 without ever being banned from a business.

I haven't been accused of being a bore. I just haven't been accused of being someone kids should aspire to be.


My bothers and I were kicked out of the Flora-bama bar for life. Can I be in your club? Although, I think it was leveled by a hurricane and rebuilt; does that erase our bannination?

Zulu_as_Kono: crabsno termites: Don't buy stinky fresh, don't buy thawed frozen. Ain't rocket surgery.

Still think you sound pretentious.

1. No sh*t.
b. Good for you.

I mean, I do McDonald's once in a great while and all, but the idea of sitting down in a place with a wait staff to eat sh*tty food cooked someplace else and reheated on site is repellant, especially with seafood! You've had the good stuff - why bother with it when it's bad?


I've given up eating Chinese. I realized every Chinese restaurant uses the same Costco frozen bags of Mu-shu vegetables, the same canned sauces, the same pre-fried chicken and pork chunks. Fark it. I'll just have Middle Eastern and Indian.

Zulu_as_Kono: Great Janitor: Like you've never been asked to leave and never return to a place of business?

No, I'm talking about the "hey, I'm such a Individual, that I will go to a vegetarian restaurant and then harass the waiter about getting me a hamburger from someplace else, because I'm ME" sort of thing. That's not real, is it?


I wouldn't say it was harassment, just asked him if he would, his job is to bring food to the table and I asked him to do so...from the place next door. It is not about being an individual, it was that the menu had nothing I wanted to eat and the group my ex and I were in had two vegetarians.

After that dinner, when they left and found me sitting on the sidewalk outside of the restaurant, next to the door, finishing my burger, her friends said that they'd love to hang out with her again, just never ever again with me.

Zulu_as_Kono: Chafed Willi: Oh, I could care less about convincing you to eat at red lobster. I just knew there wouldn't be a point because anyone that asks that question, regardless of subject, is far too full of themselves to actually discuss the topic objectively. Your response was just icing on the cake.

How are you liking iOS6?

Jesus, what does this even mean? Do you often engage with humans?


Holy shiat, I'm saying you're a bull headed idiot that is asking a question for which the answer doesn't matter. Its like the pope asking "why would I want to convert to Islam?" You know you're not going to convince him.

Do you need me to define that for you further, or can you find someone there to explain it?

2words1finger: RoyHobbs22: 2words1finger: Screw all you haters, I loves me some Red Lobster... and if any of you jackholes can find some other readily available place where I can get a steaming platter of crab legs without being gouged on the price, I'd love to know about it (and no, Joe's Crab Shack does not count, their prices are worse than RL and their atmosphere is farking annoying)

The grocery store you j/o. It is pretty farking easy to steam crab legs and melt butter, shiat you could do both in the microwave which is probably how they do it at RL.

Please show me a grocery store where you can get raw crab legs for a reasonable price. Even the very high-end stores I've been to only sell that wretched pre-cooked crab that consists of laughably small legs which invariably tastes like ass and are rubbery.

/who's the j/o now?
//not even sure what "j/o" means, but am assuming it is an insult

wretched pre-cooked crab = the same shiat they are serving you at RL.

OHHHHHH, sweet zombie jesus. You gotta warn people about that whole Masshole thing. If you had just started out with "Hey everyone, I'm from Boston" we'd all have understood that you're just one step above the derp that comes out of backwoods Alabama, and we should adjust our expectations accordingly.

Next time I quote you I'll use pictures instead of written words. That way you'll understand and be able to follow a conversation. 

(and to reiterate, no I don't care about the seafood you get. I can walk down to the lake and catch some nice sunfish to pan fry if I wanted to. I'm still just calling you out as the idiot that you are.)

Well sure, every rule has exceptions. I still maintain that most foods have to be grown locally or they'll be bad by the time they get to you. But unlike fish, lemons last a while since they're naturally high in preservatives.

They rebuilt the Flora-bama, so I can count that.

Says the guy who has missed the entire point. Let me lay it out clear one more time: if you know what good fish tastes like, why eat at Red Lobster? If there's no place around other than Red Lobster to eat good fish, why not eat something else?

As for the anti-Boston nonsense? Fahk you, we're better than you and you know it.

Interesting that you bring this up after initially objecting to the idea that food trucked 4 hours from LA to Vegas could possibly be fresh. What about transit times aboard ship? If it's a day on the boat, a couple hours in the plant, what's 4 hours on a truck? There's probably fish that lands at whatever the big southern CA fishing port is that ends up on a table in Vegas before fish from the same boat is eaten locally.

You must be right. Boston is where I learned to " Pahk my Cah an wahk". And also where the drunk lady came across 3 lanes at a traffic circle and ran me up into the grass, causing me to ruin a tire.

You know what - I eat McDonalds and whatnot on occasion, like I've said. You know how on ads for fast food burger joints the food looks sooooo much better on tv than when you actually get it, and than it actually tastes? I do.

I see ads for Red Lobster, and I see seafood that's buried in bread crumbs and/or drowning in butter and I do the math. Then I assume the fish was improperly handled at some point (and with seafood, proper handling is even more crucial than with most other proteins), and then was cooked in a central facility, frozen, and reheated in whatever sit-down fast-food joint I might happen to be in.

Are you trying to tell me I should give it a shot, I'd be pleasantly surprised? Is the food good?
 
2012-10-03 02:31:44 AM  

grinnel: Avoiding the 'Veto Vote" is a red herring. Seafood is expensive, and only getting more expensive. Pork and chicken have had the least fluctuation in costs over the past several years. Are they adding to the menu or replacing items with lower cost items. Even if there capture ratio grew 1% a year, I don't think that would be enough to keep up with seafood inflation. I saw the parmesan crusted chicken and immediately thought that is a pre-breaded POS that now one company can cross utilize in more than one of its chains. As food costs continue to go up, I would expect to see more homogenization in companies with multiple niche chains.


Pink Slime.

That is all.
 
2012-10-03 02:35:29 AM  
TFA: One of the dishes that made the cut is a Parmesan-crusted Chicken Alfredo that's served over corkscrew pasta; it's for diners who want a chicken dish that's a little more decadent.

Yes to the first, maybe to the second, some to the third. But as B. Franklin said: "Better to say nothing and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt".

I live in the MIdwest. I can go down to the grocery store, buy a frozen lobster tail, and cook it myself (baked is the best IMHO) melt some butter and clarify it, and have a better meal then I could at Red Lobster for half the cost.

I am currently banned from two different denominations (churches) and a library.

Bathia_Mapes: Say what you will about Red Lobster. They're by no means great cuisine (the same company owns Olive Garden), but they do something few chain restaurants do, which is taking into consideration their customers allergies.

Both my son and I are allergic to shellfish. If you inform them of your allergies they will offer you an allergen menu that shows you what possible allergens each menu item contains.


If you're allergic to shellfish you shouldn't even go into a Red Lobster. You think they bother washing the pans and utensils between every dish they prepare? That spoon they stirred the crab meat with is the same one they used to ladle the Chicken Linguini onto your plate. If you've never had an allergic reaction while eating there you've been damned lucky.

Yes, that was your point. My point was that it was clear, based on your previous statements, that it didn't matter what reasons anyone gave you. You would not believe them, as you believe you could never have an enjoyable experience at this restaurant. I feel my point was made.

Also, your response to crabsno is hilarious given the discussion. But you're wicked smaht, I'm sure you're aware of the irony.
