[icons icon=”icon-food” color=”#eeee22″ size=”120″] Seriously I think I am just getting too old for this world. I mean David and I decided to grab a burger from our A&W and decided to try the feature of the month or whatever, which was a Mushroom Mama Burger.
Now it should be okay, right? Course I expect too much for my $5 (versus $5.65 for a regular Momma Burger) but really, 3 overcooked burnt mushrooms, a few slivers of carmelized onions, just isn’t what I consider a tasty treat.
Think about it, we spent a total of $16 plus tax for three burgers.
For about $5 I can get a pound of lean hamburger meat, which would make three decent sized burgers.
Add some fresh mushrooms for about $2, which would be a fair amount of mushrooms, another $2 for some fresh baked kaiser buns from the bakery, and through in a couple of slices of deluxe cheese for under another $2 and I can cook up three tasty burgers, that aren’t burnt, have some flavor, have the works on it, on a bun that isn’t stale.
What chokes me up is, this is what we get, what we settle for, instead of actually demanding quality for the price we pay.
Sure it is fast food, but come on, have some class and serve something that is tasty and eatible, not just fast. ¬†If the price was less, okay, but these days fast food outlets charge an arm and leg for utter crap.
And it isn’t business to blame, but us, the consumers because we don’t expect more, we don’t demand more, for our dollar. I don’t know, David and I work hard for our money and frankly we pissed away close to $20 because I simply was too lazy to bother with cooking dinner.
