We shouldn’t have gone to this restaurant.
There are five of them in our county, and one in the county just north of us. By our own definition, that makes it a chain. If there were only four of them, we would have been fine, but we still went.
So, if our Cuisine Quest is to visit every non-chain restaurant in our town, and the list is very long, why did we waste our time on a restaurant that should have not been on our list?
Soccer. Or, football. Depends on where you’re from.
You see, we are soccer fans in America without cable TV. So, unless we invite ourselves to someone’s house to watch the game, we have to go to a restaurant to watch.
The best restaurant we’ve found that our whole family can watch soccer is a chicken wings chain restaurant the next town over.
Would we go again? Yes, for the food. Two forks up. Will we go again? Not during soccer season!
Is it ok to break a rule just because I want to? There are many reasons for rules.
Courtesy – open the door for someone with their arms full.
Law and order – don’t take something that doesn’t belong to you.
Social behavior – look at the person, not your phone, when they are talking with you.
Business – If it’s not necessary to ‘reply all’, don’t.
Health – don’t start smoking.
Family – ask first before borrowing.
The Golden Rule – do unto others as you would have them to unto you.
