Five reasons why reviewing chain restaurants isn't the worst idea in the world
2. "Don't you have anything better to do with your time than write about f*cking McDonald's?"
No. I really have nothing better to do with my time, since my career writing negative fortune cookie messages never took off the way I planned, and my "Meatloaf on a Stick" idea didn't pan out.
1. "When are you gonna review Cracker Barrel, huh?"
That's a damn good idea, actually. Cracker Barrel has been in the restaurant industry news lately because it is looking for ways to improve. I should really help CB on its quest, since at this point I personally see the joint as a highway off-ramp last resort for weary traveling diners who have grandma and grandpa in the car.
"Your boss probably hates you, so that's why you're doing this, right?"
I don't think this is true at all. I got invited to the company Christmas party, so if my bosses really hated me, they'd have concocted an elaborate scheme to keep me away from them, and the canapés.
