  • Apparently, a huge bowl of Thai soup requires an equally huge plate of rice. Nothing on the menu about it, nothing said while I was ordering, but it showed up with my soup. Needless to say, Geek got extra rice that night.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      This.

      Drives me.

      INSANE.

      I go to a restaurant, order a meal, say, "No bread, please. Yes, we're crazy low-carb people. Is the shrimp breaded? No? Great! Okay, can you replace the starches with vegetables? It'll cost me a little extra? No problem! Sounds good. Balsamic dressing on the salad. Thanks!"

      And then the salad comes out with croutons.

      I mean, C'MON. Yes yes yes, I know, I should ASK if the salad comes with croutons, and I usually remember, but sometimes I'm debating Deep Social Commentary with my other half and we're not thinking about effing croutons.

      I would expect a good waiter would put 2 + 2 together and gently remind me that their salads come with croutons.

      Please don't hate me, people who have been waitstaff. I know this is a very first world problem. I know the effing croutons can just be picked off. I tip well and I am usually very understanding and polite, honest! I just want to see some neurons firing!

      • I went put for dinner today with my dad and my auntie, the latter of which really doesn't seem to grasp this, and why I wouldn't want to eat bread, pasta etc.

        So we all ordered a roast dinner - but it comes with roast potatoes and mash. Convo with waitress goes.

        "I don't want the mash"
        "We'll give you a double order of roast potatoes then"
        "Actually I don't want any potatoes, can I just sub it for veg"
        *blank stare*

        Ended up with the double order of potatoes and just left them. I wanted roast beef, and veg. That's it!!


        Also, according to my auntie eating like this is really unhealthy. Says the woman whose weight yo-yos due to being on ridiculous diets.

        • I like when something comes with french fries and you politely say you don't want them and they say " but it comes with them". So then I usually say "okay, here's the deal, you can charge me for them, I don't care, just stop at the trash can on the way to the table and throw them out if you're incapable of telling the kitchen I don't want them."

          • It's kind of convoluted, and I know that I shouldn't expect other people to know things just because I'VE researched them, and they're obvious to ME, but:

            me to very overweight friend with lots of health problems while we were talking about her health: Yeah, I know it seems like a pain, but it's just one month. If you find out that that's what your problem is, it might literally save your life. If it does nothing for you, all you've lost is a month of cupcakes. Just remove gluten and soy and I bet it would do wonders"

            Other friend: You should totally try to cut out gluten. It worked wonders for *other person*. I wouldn't cut out soy though, you're already having hormonal problems, you don't want to reduce your estrogen"

            YES SHE DOES!!!!! Do you not understand that too much estrogen is probably why she is unhealthy?!?:!?! She's almost 300 pounds, SHE HAS TOO MUCH ESTROGEN!!!! Fat produces estrogen. She needs to avoid estrogen producing foods AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE and supplement with progesterone to balance it out!!!!!

            SERIOUSLY!!!! I get that YOU don't know what you're talking about because YOU haven't done any research on the subject, but for the love of god woman, don't give out advice on a subject that you're clueless about! I wouldn't give someone car advice, or betting advice, or rocket science advice! I wouldn't tell someone how to manage their budget, or buy fashionable clothes. But I freaking know what I'm talking about when it comes to hormones, and I can tell you being 300 pounds AND having heavy/irregular periods, AND having insulin resistance is NOT a sign of having too LITTLE estrogen!



            Ok, I'm done ranting. It's just... GAH! People should not talk about what they do not know!

            • A good friend of mine claims to be allergic to pretty much everything under the sun. Gluten, soy, casein, olives (which we recently proved to him that he wasn't allergic to olives), nitrates, sulfates, citric acid, spinach, chocolate, the list goes on. I don't mind working around true allergies, I really don't. I do mind working around an allergy that he thinks he has because he ate something containing it and got a headache afterward.
              He ate pepper poppers whenever he could find them until he got a headache after he ate a certain kind of cheese. Rather than try to find the true cause of the headache (the mold in the cheese, lack of sleep, etc), he swears off ALL dairy. He determined all his allergies (with the exception of gluten and soy) this oh so scientific way. I swear to god, one of these days I'll slip every single one of these so- called allergens (excepting the soy, gluten, and chocolate) into a meal and watch him freak the fuck out when he realizes he doesn't have them.

              Rant over, I just get tired of having to alter my cooking for his lazy ass.

              • Brother in law eats wheat with every meal. Bagel for breakfast, sandwich for lunch, breaded chicken and pasta with dinner. Usually has ice cream for dessert. He's gained a lot of weight and said his girlfriend has kind of told him if he doesn't lose it she doesn't want to be with him.

                I asked him what he's been doing. He said well instead of a bagel for breakfast he has an eggo. For lunch he gets whole wheat bread sandwich from subway.

                He said I really don't like eating healthy foods so I figured the eggo is healthier then a bagel and whole wheat is better then white bread.

                He's like I know the wheat is bad for me but I don't like anything else.

                I didn't even know what to say.

                • My friend who has two children: I just bought a whole bunch of junk food. I don't like buying unhealthy food, but it's summer, so I've got to have something for the kids to eat.

                  • Being lectured while out at dinner on Saturday with my obese, type II diabetic, acne-ridden, unable to walk up a flight of stairs friend that I really should eat the bean and chickpea salad that came with my meal because "beans are soooo good for you, I eat them all the time!"

                    Legumes could do without that endorsement!

                      This thread should be re-named the *head-desk/ face-palm* thread.

                        I remember when I worked at an Italian restaurant a lady called to complain about her four or five croutons on her caesar salad because she claimed she was gluten intolerant. What was her entree? A heaping bowl of Spaghetti with meat sauce. We didn't have gluten free pasta. And the meat sauce definitely had wheat in it too.

                          I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

                          • Child: "Can I have a soda with my meal?"
                            Parental Figure: "No. No soda."
                            (Steph: Quietly rooting for parent!)
                            Parental Figure then notices...: "You didn't eat your fruit."
                            Child: *mumblemumble*
                            Parental Figure: "Well, drink this glass of juice because you need your fruit."
                            (Steph mentally slams head into table.)

                            I whipped out the "100% organic orange juice leads to 100% organic Type 2 diabetes" line on Facebook the other day, and apparently a friend of mine who is an avid OJ imbiber didn't like it very much.

                            Don't get me wrong, I love juice, but it's a once- or twice-a-year treat (and usually while camping). It should be regarded as fortified liquid sugar in a glass, period.

                            • A relative of a friend of mine decided that the best way to get her granddaughter to eat at dinner was to turn it to a "fun" race to stuff in the food as fast as possible. Years of that. Oh yes, I'm sure that won't set up any unhealthy habits or attitudes...

                              • It's hard to change someone's view on diet when it involves their self-image as well.

                                My good friend and hiking buddy is an avid chronic cardio cyclist who has no muscle tone in legs or upper body and is developing a serious carb gut since he passed 40 a couple of years back.
                                When we first started hiking, I had just had a bunch of surgeries and he was always having to wait for me to catch up (very sweet of him).
                                Now when we hike I am going way faster than him and he is furiously popping cliff bars or those sugar gel blocks cyclists use every few minutes.
                                He can't figure out how I can go from a solid breakfast to a solid dinner with a 14 mile hike in between without needing snackies.

                                But when told about the benefits of Primal, he says, "Well, that might work for you but I could never do that. I'm an *athlete*".
