Obviously we do not prescribe ourselves pain meds or Coat of arms of Poland Green Bay Packers shirt and whatnot. But something like a thyroid refill, why not? Just have them draw your blood and check the tsh level, then hit that refill button. Once I got fired for not wanting to get a lipid profile done. I engaged her in the relative risk of MACE in my age and gender group and she just lost it. Is it my fault I enjoy arguing? No. It is her fault that she just wants to check off another quality box to earn her bonus. No. I’d say, “ Well, ma’am, I’m sure you have other people to talk to. It’s been a pleasure. “ And then I’d back off and let her get on with being the Queen. She is under no legal or social obligation to listen to me witter on about the plays of Tom Stoppard, the hopeless instability of the tuning on the allegedly classic Fender Stratocaster, or the evolution of post-Hurricane Hawker piston-engined fighters. Sometimes a tough call. My tendency would be to ask the little diner which menu they would like or ask the whole table which menus. In my own places we never had kids menus as I have an aversion to most of the laziness that can go into them.
Diner might not see the need for extra food. Keep in mind that adding items to a menu will increase food and labor costs. The cooks will also have additional items to prepare, so you might not turn tables as quickly. If appetizer sales make up for increased costs and you see positive action on the bottom line, then adding appetizers was a good decision. If your bottom line is shrinking because of them, deuce the appetizers and try something else. My in-laws insisted that I take their surname on when I got married. Having chosen this path a little later in life than most, I was I suppose attached to my own name and considered it part of my identity. I refused. We were married in October. My birthday was just 1.5 months later. My in-laws sent me a birthday card in which one of them had written their surname after “Dear Jane” with ink quite forcefully (judging by how heavy the word appeared next to my name), in capitals and underlined it. Who even writes the full name of the recipient on a birthday card?! Such a vulgar act of possession it felt like! Especially given cultural context. After looking at it in shock for some time, I tore up the card and did not acknowledge it. My in-laws then dared to ask me whether I had received their card, to which I replied that it must have been lost in the post.
