Restaurant problems

Anyone else having trouble with restaurants this time of year. Ours usually serve Eggs Bennedict on chrome dishes but always seem to stop around now.

I hate that because, as we all know, there's no plates like chrome for the Hollandaise.

Well... "This time of year" is when all the businesses bombard their customers with christmas music. I don't have any religious beliefs and really don't like being forced to listen to christmas music just to eat a hamburger. Seems like it starts in October now. Gets everyone in that spend money mode I guess. I can't wait for it to get back to normal and just have to listen to perverts like Michael Jackson while I buy plumbing supplies at Home Depot again

I have a mental processing disability in two areas which make the carols and such really annoying- stick a needle into one's eye level annoying. My musical aptitude is around 3 on a bell curve where 50 is average so I simply have no musical aptitude at all. This forces my brain to deal with musical lyrics as though they were conversation or statements and so try to make sense of them. Try this for a bit, try to concentrate on a song and make sense of the information. Concentrate and prepare to enter madness.

Carols are the very extreme of nonsense so "needle in the eye" isn't exaggeration. Also tends to make me a tad testy about the nonsense season.

I wish the stores would just play the songs that say what they really are after. Maybe "money" by Pink Floyd?

Odd how all the Michael Jackson pedophile jokes continue but almost nothing about the catholic church?

As a child, I hated christmas carols reindeer pursecuting another because it has a red nose then accepting it because it was needful to exploit its ability, on and on. Used to make me want to up-chuck.

I agree that the stores should play songs which better reflect society. :-)

The solution to your problems are simple, guys. Stores and "shopping" are for women.

Anything that a man needs, from tools and snacks to Rotella T to clothing, ammunition, underwear etc. can be procured from the local farm store like Farm And Fleet, Orscheln's or Tractor Supply. There is no "shopping" involved because the choices are limited and you should already know exactly where everything is. The only music you'll encounter there is the local country farm radio station that pays the store to play their station all day. 99.9% of the patrons in the store with you are sane, courteous and friendly.

If there's not one close to you, you've made poor choices about where you live.

Convenience stores run by those of Middle Eastern descent don't bother with Christmas music so food staples like Giant Tabasco Slim Jims, kettle-cooked potato chips, Vienna Sausage packed in hot sauce, Ice Cold Beer, etc. can be obtained without exposure to the Christmas Season if you make it a point not to look at all the Holiday-Themed scratch-off tickets on display at the counter. You should be able to find one of these stores no matter where you live.

As far as restaurants go, what else does a man need besides the drive-thru lanes at Taco Bell and Church's Chicken? They don't serve novelty Christmas items like the Tacos Navidad at Taco John's which are akin to a plate full of torn-up wrapping paper topped with ground beef and nacho cheese.

Taking a stand against the Commercial Christmas Season is like that Chinese guy standing in front of a tank in Tianamen Square. Sure, he was famous for a few seconds, but now he's buried in a shallow grave outside the perimeter fence of some Labor/Re-Education camp.

Best to just step aside and let the column of tanks roll on by. Nothing's gonna change.

I wish the stores would not reinforce these faith based beliefs but it's all about the money isn't it? Nothing is going to "change" unless reasonable people speak up and say that they don't believe you get 72 virgins for killing people.

Just a few years ago, (in the scheme of things) a "blasphemer" such as myself, would have been publicly burned at the stake but today we only get kicked off other KLR forums. That's a big leap froward, but currently there's a post on the "other" forum that says "All is well, I am traveling next week and had a lot to do but the devil kept me busy with the bike all day unable to complete any tasks and God jumped in and helped me accomplish it." I'm having a hard time not asking if that post is an early April fools joke or what, but the guy really believes that is true. A "god" helps him fix his KLR. Wow! Makes me wonder about humanities future but more importantly, what about the poor mechanics that god will put out of work? What happens to them?
