You got a whine for the day? This is you place to put it.
So today we went to one of those family restaurant parks. You know these places - they are all over America. There were multiple choices.

The entire place was empty except for maybe three tables.
Being ingrained in the society of INSTANT GRATIFICATION, yes even I have succumbed to the societal norm, I thought. Huh? You do realize I can just walk next door and WALK IN????

It's Breakfast. How hard can this be? So we paid and left. We have come to the conclusion that no one wants to work anymore or take little pride in their work.
