Is there a worse investment than eating out?
>Have to drive to a restaurant
>Usually it's in the city, which means lots of traffic
>Also have to pay for parking
>Walk to the restaurant
>Stand there in the doorway
>"Yes, can I please pay you alot of money to eat here?"
>Have some wagie tell you to please wait to be seated
>Finally get to a table
>Have to sit on a shitty chair
>Behind you is a fat person that has his chair too far away from the table
>Have almost no room to sit
>Next to your table is a group that is loudly talking to eachother
>Can barely hear your date on the same table
>Music is also blasting too loud
>Finally the waiter comes
>Can I get you anything to drink?
>Think to myself "Just give me everything at once so I can fuck out of here asap"
>Have to wait 10 minutes for them to bring your drink
>Ask if you want a starter
>Wait another 15 minutes
>Ask if you want your dinner
>Wait another 30 minutes
>Finally done with dinner
>Want any desert? Wait another 10 minutes
>Want coffee? Wait another 15 minutes
>2 fucking hours sitting on a small table, noise everywhere trying to get to know the girl in front of you
>$200 at least
>They also expect you to pay a tip for "The service"
Honestly I not only dislike it, I legit hate it with every fucking cell in my fucking body.
How does any fucking logical reasonable human being with a normal functioning brain thinks this is somehow a good thing?
How could any fucking person that leaves a place like this think to themselves:
>Ah yes, I feel so much better now, i'm glad I spend $200 on this experience.
Even if it was 10x as cheap, and I mean it, even if I could get the whole experience for $20 instead of $200, I still would think and feel that i'm being ripped off. EVEN IF IT WAS FREE. Even if they paid me. I'd honestly rather be at work than ever in my fucking life have to eat in a cocksocking fucking restaurant ever fucking again.
