12 Unfortunate Restaurant Truths That Will Make You Think Twice About Eating Out

12 Unfortunate Restaurant Truths That Will Make You Think Twice About Eating Out

“The funny thing is, I'll bet any money this same author was hyping Avacados/Guac and Edamame at restaurants like, 2-3 years ago. For SURE the comments sections were. Along with Quinoa.

The end result: Yuppies who order this kind of garbage don't care about how much money they're wasting. It's a status thing more than anything. Those that don't simply "don't get it."

It's quite sad, but it's true- especially here.”

“Avocados are yuppie status food? That is a silly comment.”

“Costco's also the same way. A small chain that is fortunately spreading rapidly Wegman's often has cheaper $/lb (or whatever measurement applies) for the vast majority of items carried by Wholesale Clubs

But all too often I find that even if it were more, there's something to be said about buying what you need. This way you don't buy or consume expensive products in excess because it sounded like a good deal to buy a truckload of Handisnacks.

Added Bonus: You don't need to buy some stupid variety back with 3 flavors: "Ambrosia, Bliss, and Dirt."”

“I find that I only buy certain items at Costco and don't go for the packaged food items at all. But electronics, eyeglasses, linens, kitchen items, good wine and some food items it is hard to beat them. However, I am always blown away at the seniors buying huge processed, overly salted or sugared packaged foods ... just cant' be healthy.”

“Preferring Costco to Sam's is fine (I do, too), but trashing those who have been hurt by this race-to-the-bottom economy (i.e., Walmart employees and shoppers) is unnecessary, mean-spirited, and just plain snobby.

This is why the 1% continue to get their way; the rest of us are pointing fingers at each other, meanwhile ignoring the exploiters. Not cool at all.”

“1)Sam's Club Prices are usually higher than Costco, and often times even higher than Walmart or Wegmans (in NoVA anyway)
2)Their employees are even worse than those hired at Walmart.
3)Their employees are some of the biggest *** holes I've ever seen. My mother was berated by her store's staff and told she couldn't buy her entire cart of groceries because she was apparently revoked from my account. When I went in to question it, they claimed I HAD to be the one to revoke my mother's card and give it to my ex-wife instead, despite not even being in town when they said I did it.
4)Sam's Club customers are trashier than their employees. Last time I was in there, there was so much garbage on the floor, people putting food in the clothing section to rot. Sure, you get that everywhere to an extent but it was excessive.

I promptly switched and haven't looked back. If it were a normal store, that'd be one thing. If I am going to pay a yearly fee to even set foot inside your "club" I expect it to not be a dump.”

“I too love Costco, but could you please please please send us a Wegman's too ?”

“To be fair to the employees, it's hard to be upbeat when your employer treats you like crap. Costco employees are great because the company treats them well. So, better workers end up there, they feel a better sense of belonging, and their attitude reflects that.”

Millennials Are More Likely To Be Democratic, Single And Churchless: Pew Research

“So long as Republicans/Conservatives are living in the 1950's with respect to social issues, Millenials don't even care to listen to anything you have to say with respect to financial issues.

Even IF I thought your financial ideas were sound, you don't want my gay friends to get married and you want to push your religious ideals onto me? There's the door. Even those Millenials who DO identify as religious are also intelligent enough to realize that this garbage that you preach in the name of "God" is 100% CONTRARY to the teaching of Jesus.

Lastly, which this survey doesn't cover, our lives were all but ruined by war. 9/11 was bad enough for adults, imagine what it did to us who were kids at the time. Then our friends who we went to school with went overseas and died in Iraq and Afghanistan by roadside bombs and suicide vests all because of oil interests when Osama wasn't even IN either of those countries (and neither were WMDs).

All this stick-waving with respect to Iran/North Korea/Russia is really helping you win your base, but once Millenials are in charge of the government, you can be damned sure the US will be going into a state of isolationism. We just don't care about the Middle East.

You're barking up all the wrong trees. This won't change with age.”

Vikrim on Mar 7, 2014 at 14:58:46

“Well said. One correction though...the fringe element of the Republican/Conservative movement of today (who seem to be driving things at the moment) aren't living in the 50's but are regressing even further by trying to revive a 19th century Age of Enlightenment debate, which was one of rigid traditionalism vs. reason. Look no further than their denial of science while attempting to bring religion into the public square as evidence of this. Or their attempt to bring the teaching of creationism into public schools as a counter to the teaching of evolution. Or their attempt to place the 10 commandments in front of law courts. Etc.

They realize that the arc of history has consistently been moving away from rigid traditionalism for the past 2 centuries and we're seeing their desperate reaction play out in America, especially in the south.”

“Not that it'd do a lot of good if they did.

If non-for-profits were actually not-for-profit, you'd actually start seeing more cures instead of commercials to raise money for cures. Simply put, most are employment shelters for your friends and families. Advertising for your business, err... I mean... "raising awareness for your cause."

But we as human beings only depend on others because we feel it is necessary for our own personal gain. (Be it monetary, physical, or spiritual gain) Such an organization steps beyond the "I'm going to donate so I can sleep at night" territory and actually forces people to work for the good of others. And since they no longer need to, why would they?”

“Does it really change you or does it turn you into what you wanted to be?

A lot of people tell themselves small little lies like "Money can't buy you happiness." though you typically hear things like that from people who are having a hard time keeping it together because they're losing their house.

Human beings, at their core, are selfish. Even the people who do well only do so because they think they'll be rewarded for it if not immediately but by Karma or even the Afterlife, or even the feeling they get by doing something positive.

Of course, the results of this "study" shouldn't be surprising. People like to keep their money. From the top of the corporate ladder to the bottom. Oh, we love to focus on the top. But if you could get an extra $2 an hour for the same work you're doing now... would you? Yes you would. If you could get an extra $200/hr would you? Yes you would. If you could. But you can't. So you hate those that can.

But don't pretend like you are any different.”

Who says she's "restricted" by what LEGO sells her on the front of the box? Isn't that completely missing the entire purpose of what LEGOs are?”

The only people I know using Macs are mostly Art Majors. Not the Electrical Engineers, Software Engineers, Computer Scientists, Physicists, etc. We know better. It's ovepriced junk wrapped in plastic.

Unfortunately, DELL/HP/etc are even worse. And that's all Walmart carries and for SOME reason people are going to Walmart to buy a computer. So yeah, one piece of dog dropping smells better than another-- but I'm not going to scent my house with it.”

So I looked at her resume, which she claimed to have paid someone $300 to create. It was three pages long and had so many bizarre things in it that I am pretty certain she didn't even read it herself. Also she didn't send any cover letters… After re-inventing the wheel and creating a cover letter she got three call backs on 5 send outs.”
