Last night I went to a restaurant with my fiancee. He had been given a gift card to use. I hate those gift cards. They are just a lazy way to give a person a gift, and half the time, the person does not use them. I have read that 50% of them go unused, so that is why they are so prominently displayed in the stores!!! They are a big money maker.
At any rate, it is a restaurant that I know is a calorie pit. There is almost nothing there that is healthy, and it does not even taste that good. Yet, the place is always packed.
I had veal parmigiana and ravioli, you could see the fat oozing out of the sauce. Globules of it. I am so mad I did not order a salad, but I always like to go along with whatever my eating companion is having. I do this with friends, relatives, everyone. He was having a dinner, so I thought I should have a dinner. The soup was a tasteless minestrone that gave me gas.
Am I going to learn something from this??? He still has $150 left on this gift card!!! I cannot believe the stupidity of putting $200 on a cheapo restaurant gift card, but his daughter likes to act like she is rich. She is the one who gave it to him. In all fairness to her, she knows it is a place he frequents with his buddies. It is that type of place. I will leave it to him and his buddies in the future.
