    You seem to spend a lot of time arguing with a wide variety of people about the prices of food, and maybe other things? Seriously. Who needs that stress, and who has the time for that? I can buy nice fresh wings that are weighed, packaged, and priced. I trust that pricing. And I can make my own incredible wings at home for a lot less than I spend at a grocery store deli, or any number of restaurants. Try it, you might like the results.

    I don't know why, but your post makes me think of the time I wandered around inside Art Van and a salesman tried to tell me a bookshelf I was looking at was solid oak. I pulled out a shelf and could see it was made out of particle board.

    First of all, I'm retired so I have extra time. Second, frying chicken wings is one of the things I do not like to do and I don't deep fry at home, which is the only way I like fried chicken wings. Third, if I know the price for fried wings is $4.99 a pound, I do not like being charged $6.99 a pound.
    Maybe you like being overcharged, I don't.

    Damn it Petro, your contagious.
    I went to Culvers yesterday. Went thru drive thru. Girl seemed to be new employee (little slow in taking order). Ordered ice tea with lemon. Got the ice tea, no lemon!!!!! No problem. Their iced tea is great without lemon. Maybe she didn't hear me say with lemon.

    It was a general observation, not a chicken-wing observation, lol. Got it - cranky retired guy. :lol: Congrats on retirement, and spend your time any way you choose. I'll be right there with you in a few years. Except I'll fry my own chicken wings. I'll be the cranky old guy who fishes these certain spots on certain rivers, or lakes, probably. An Old Boy.

    I was at a Birmingham restaurant for dinner a couple weeks back, and the salad fork that arrived with my caesar salad was not chilled - freakin' room temperature. Heathens...

    There's a different fork for a salad?

    It was Culver’s so I would give her a pass for the lemon debacle. Now if you had gotten a lemon and no iced tea, that would be a different story.

    And make sure you tell everyone to stay away from your fishing spot by telling them it’s full of poison ivy and water moccasins.

    Should have eaten half of you meal, then complain to the manager and have it taken off you bill. That’s what happens where my wife works.

    Yeah, the salad fork looks like the fork used for the entrée, but it is colder.
