Thanks for sharing the link! I have not decided if I will use the card or not. I am 2 months post op and have eaten out many times. Depending on the restaurant, I will order from the kid's menu (Boston Market, Mall Chinese Restaurants, PeiWei)...otherwise, my husband and I share something. When I do have to order something just for myself, I eat what I can and take the rest home.
I don't see anything wrong with the cards. If I presented a card at a restaurant and they didn't want to honor it, then I probably wouldn't go back to the restaurant. They can choose to have my money or they can choose not to...it is as simple as that.
Good company or not, I just can't validate going to a buffet. My favorite restaurant is a delicious Brazilian steak house but I just can't see going there and paying $50++ per person to eat a fourth of a cup of meat. Oh well...that's life.
When I go out to eat, I have no problem with taking food home or just sharing with someone. My coworkers don't know that I've had WLS so I just order something small - soup and salad, small entree...and eat what I can. I worked with some skinny *****es that picked at their food and hardly ate and no one questioned them. (I'm not calling them "*****es" because they are skinny...I'm saying "*****es" because that's what they were). Anyway, if someone questions me I just say that I am "cutting back" or whatever.
Most children's menus are absolutely vile. I don't understand how people can let their kids eat corndogs, hotdogs, chicken nuggets and mac n cheese as an actual entree on a regular basis. When you try to order off the kids menu, you will see just how bad it is.
The other poster, *****plied to you with the "soapbox rant" was a bit much. If you hate the card then don't use it...it is as simple as that.
