Eating out at a restaurant — even at a fast food restaurant — can be frustrating at times.
Ever have this conversation at work or with your friends/family?
“So, you want to go out for lunch?”
“Okay, then where do you want to go?”
Look – you’re the one who said “let’s go out”, so why not try to have an idea or two in your head about some place to head out to? Why do you always leave the suggesting up to one person who may not have wanted to decide themselves anyway?
Ordering dessert at a restaurant is sometimes a fool’s errand.
$6 for a scoop of ice cream that you can buy by the carton at the supermarket for $4? A “molten lava cake”? They’re not that hard to make if the contestants on FOOD NETWORK’S WORST COOKS IN AMERICA can make one.
So it’s no wonder that restaurant desserts have some of the highest markup of almost anything on the menu. And no wonder why many restaurants think nothing of serving up a giant slice of chocolate cake for free on your birthday.
And everyone tries very hard to prevent farting in public. That’s a lot of pent-up gas.
So why the pressure to not break wind in front of others? Is it society politeness? Is it embarrassment of being labeled a Stink-a-roo? Being stuck in an elevator with a foul odor for an extended period of time?
There is one common denominator in most small talk conversations: “HOW’S THE WEATHER WHERE YOU ARE?”
Why is the weather such a topic of discussion? Because it’s safe. Everyone has an opinion on it, and you can’t argue whether someone’s wrong. If you don’t like the weather, just wait an hour – it’ll likely change.
It’s a fair question. Web Watch has offered $1 to many friends when they said they’d do “anything for money”. Apparently, it seems, a single dollar was not what they had in mind when they made the offer.
We say that if you’re going to offer to do anything for money, you should definitely lower your expectation of what dollar amount is going to be offered to you. What you think you’re worth may not be the same as what others believe.
Web Watch has told you about all the different ways physicians and other medical professionals spread germs and disease everywhere they go.
From dirty stethoscopes to dirty scrubs (or scrubs worn on airplanes, and then to who knows where!), nurses and doctors are constantly walking around in swirling packs of germs, like “Pigpen” from the Peanuts comic strip.
