on the "bait and switch"

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

so I'm on the freeway and see a bill board for "steak" place.. great I think. I can get a steak with veges and take half home to my spousal equivalent, or so I've dubbed him! ;)

when I get in and seated, the lunch menu has no steaks, only Mexican food, monster salads and sandwiches. no side orders of veges, unless you count onion rings.

well flexibility is the key, so green chile cheeseburger is my choice. Mind you, I NEVER eat fast food burgers, and only rarely eat restaurant or home-made burgers.

it was WONDERFUL! but, I knew, in my heart of hearts I didn't need the whole thing. so, I'm carrying home 1/2 of that amazing burger home. score 1 for self-awareness (ie that I am full, without seeing the empty plate)


PS I really need to find some freggies for dinner! emoticon

    I have been known to turn around and walk out. Smile at the wait staff and even leave a small tip if I've drunk the water etc.

    Great attitude, especially with the bait and switch, how irritating. Glad to hear that it turned out okay, anyway! emoticon

  Great job. Looked at what you were given and adapted it to suit your needs. Keep up the good work.
