This Just Hit Me

It has been a whole month since I've eaten fast food.

Only a month? Maybe I'm spoiled by living in a city and neighbourhood that value local, non-chain eateries, but I honestly can't remember the last time I went to a genuine fast food place. I haven't even been to a chain restaurant -- Chili's or whatever -- in a couple of years. I even managed to avoid that stuff when I went home last Thanksgiving, which is a bit unusual.

Good riddance, man.

Whenever my brother comes over, he always complains about the shortage of non-chain restaurants. As twisted as it may be, I like chains.

To be honest, though, it has more to do with me hunkering down in the heatwave my town's experiencing: There's a lot of incentive not to get into a car that won't cool off until the moment I arrive at my destination.

Pretty much every single store around where I live is part of some chain. Something "local" is pretty hard to find, and usually where they do exist, they suck and the prices are terrible.

I suppose there's better examples but generally I prefer to get a burger from a place like Whataburger than some burnt up piece of ash-burger from the "local establishments".

I was getting close there until I had Burger King at the Vegas airport waiting on my return flight. It was the cheapest thing there.

And it cost me $10.

Fucking airport prices.

Yeah, local shops often do suck, and chains offer advanatages that the local shops do not.

On the other hand, that quality of individual shops in a chain can vary wildly, and it generally depends on the people working there and how good they are at their jobs.

Thus, I tend to look at shops, even chain shops, individually.

Go find yourself a Jack in the Box or Wendy's or something, holy crap.
