Lets get this out of the way first. I had a small amount of lol at your title, but then opening it up, and actually reading what your rant was
Ok, now I do agree with you, to a certain extent. Inside eating in a real restaurant or diner, then yes, there is no need for the packets. Is just a
waste and causes more garbage. However, that could also depend on the location. I live in Redneckville, U.S.A. Not very crowded. The biggest towns
around are still small towns. So here, I would not even think twice about opening a bottle of Ketchup that is half full, and sitting on the table. In
a large city, especially if I was going to a new restaurant that I have never even heard of before, I might be a little weary about using that
Also, condiment packets do have a very useful purpose when used in the right context.
Drive through window- "yeaah.. UUmmm. gimme a large order of fries. a loaded triple cheeseburger with everything except ketchup, and a large Banana
milkshake."....... get up to the window. pay for your food. get your change, then right before they give you your food. "Oh, yeah. gimme a few
ketchup packets too."
With the sandwich order being slightly unique, I just got a freshly cooked one. They can keep the other loaded burgers, that were pre-prepared, and
sitting under the heat lamp for 20 minutes. I just got mine straight off the grill.
