You know that economic times are getting tough when restaurants only serve you a tiny scoop of ice cream and with dribble of chocolate sauce for your birthday. I mean, it wasn't even hot fudge, it was chocolate sauce. And yes, there is a HUGE difference.
Actually, what we got yesterday wouldn't even qualify as a scoop. It was a "sundae" served in one of those teeny little apertif glasses. So you figure about five spoonfuls and half the cup being filled with whipped cream.
This is after our meal that was over fifteen apiece, so it wasn't like we ordered something like an appetizer and then demanded our birthday dessert. I think for spending thirty plus bucks, I should get a real sundae.
Because nothing says "we appreciate you as a customer" like shafting them on their birthday.
Thanks George W, I blame you for this too.
Actually, I think I am just going to blame everything on Dubya. It will make my life ever so much easier.
Do you have a flat tire? Blame George for loosening auto safety standards! Even if he didn't, although he probably did!
Your kid get a bad grade on their test? Totally Dubya's fault for implementing NCLB and not funding it, which has made class time a total bore with all the teaching to the test! Damn that George for taking all the joy out of going to school!
You put that red shirt in with the lights? Blame George for distracting you with the thoughts of the war in Iraq and the crappy economy!
See how easy it is? Come on and join the fun!
