I’ve been complaining for the last three days about the place my wife and I got Chinese takeout from recently (Americanized Chinese), but I should really keep this in perspective. Their food is actually pretty good…and at least the restaurant didn’t shoot and/or club its girlfriend with a cricket bat and then try to say it had mistaken her for a home invader.
There’s always that, right?
The other stuff is pretty light stuff I can live with. I can live with getting normal pork instead of BBQ pork in my garlic pork. I can deal with excess fortune cookies (even if I don’t know who the fortune applies to. I can deal with the fact that they still don’t serve chop suey. If the restaurant had murdered its girlfriend claiming to have mistaken her for a burglar, then that would be a real problem.
I should just count myself lucky that my problems are so minor. There are real problems out there and I should be thankful I don’t have them. That doesn’t mean that the things that bug me aren’t legitimate bugging things (though it doesn’t mean that they are either), just that things could be much worse.
Keep in mind, I’ll still be going to the restaurant. I wouldn’t be if the ‘girlfriend thing’ happened.
