Treat Day

I've cut eating out down to about once every two to three weeks. Today is one of those days. Given that I used to eat out everyday due to stress/depression/laziness, I'm surprised how disciplined I've been. It's been really hard. But, not being able to afford rent and being on strike/laid off is scary. I just hope I can keep this up until it's the good times again. Good luck everyone!

Back in the day when I was on Unemployment Insurance as it was then called I had a 1 bedroom attic in the West End.

Every time I got paid I would treat myself to to a very expensive halibut and chips dinner that was every 2 weeks.

Aside from that I had no inclination to eat out.

Halibut and chips are still very expensive.
But well worth it. Tasty ass fish man.

You're probably much better at cooking than me. I go for simple, fairly healthy meals. The most complex dish I can manage is a casserole.

I’ve only had decent food in a restaurant a couple of times since Covid began. I strongly object to paying the grossly inflated prices being charged by restaurants nowadays when the majority of the food they’re offering is crap. I know they’re having a hard time getting staff, but ffs are they hiring children to cook for them? Because I’ve had more garbage food served to me in the past couple of years than ever before in the 7 decades I’ve spent here. Cold, dry, flavourless, you name it. At least 25% or more expensive than before, and terrible service to boot. Then there’s the gall that expects me to give a 20% or higher tip for this awful food and s**t service! The couple of good experiences aren’t enough to make me willing to keep trying. No thanks. I’ll save my money and treat myself in other ways. I’m sorry for the restaurant owners who are genuinely trying, but they’re going to have to try a whole lot harder to win back my patronage.
