Stressful Lunch Establishments

14 Nov

I went to dine in a new place for lunch the other day, and it reminded me of a place in Columbia that my friend (shoutout, Ben T.) used to make me go. And by make me, I mean that he suggested it – he didn’t force me against my will or anything. It’s one of those “hurry up and order while in line with a tray” places. Don’t get me wrong, the food is wonderful…but I can’t take that kind of pressure. I want to scream, “I need more time, I need more time!”

I also ate at a pretty fancy smancy restaurant for lunch last week, and the stress level wasn’t much better there. This is one of those places where they use real silver, and you need to know which fork goes where.

Call me crazy, but I just want to eat my lunch without stress, pressure or feeling like I should’ve paid more attention to that etiquette lesson back in the day. Today’s lunch? Taco Bell.

    No Name Deli stresses me out so much that I will not eat there.

    That is exactly which restaurant I was talking about! Thank goodness I’m not alone in this.

    Thanks for the shoutout. No Name can be a little intimidating but it has nothing on Mac’s on Laurel. The burger place. You have to enter through the back door in the parking lot.

    Wait, I think I’ve been there, too. With Edward the eternal Page.
