Alright, this is not about writing.. at all! But this is my blog and that gives me free reign, BWA HA HA HA HA HA!!! Today I am going to rant about something totally ridiculous that makes me crazy. Are you all ready for this?
Lets say you go out to eat. You order a, hamburger lets say. Then you ask if they can cook it medium? Sure. And then you ask, “Can I get extra tomatoes on that?” Sure, but it will be an extra dollar. WHAT?!
Ok listen, I know you are a business, I know you need to make money. Believe me, I get it. I own my own business, the little stuff adds up. However, and this is my giant however. When is the last time you heard an order go like this?
“May I have a hamburger please, medium well.”
“And take off the lettuce.”
“Sure, that will reduce the price of your burger by 50 cents.”
“Really? Great, also take off the tomatoes and pickles.”
“No problem, that is minus another 1.50. Congratulations, your 6 dollar burger is now only 4!”
No, that will never happen. They will charge you for every single topping, even if you take them all off, every time. If you asked them what discount you’ll be receiving for your missing vegetables they would look at you like you were an alien.
Now, lets say I walk in and the people before me have taken off their tomatoes, lettuce and whatever else the crazy people have decided doesn’t taste good on a hamburger, and I ask for an extra tomato. What in the name of this great wide earth makes them think they need to charge me for it! Seriously people!
Alright, I am done. You may now go on with your life of removing items from meals, getting no credit for it, and paying for things you didn’t eat. While the rest of us have to pay for what you already paid for and left in the back.
