Three articles

I haven't written about it before, but readers might be interested to know that I've got three articles over at I eat I drink I work. I'm editor of that site, as some bloggers already know (because we feature bloggers from time to time).

Anyway, my articles are: Lose Your Bottle (bottled water), Good Floor Staff Don't Forget (service), and A Lightweight Epidemic? (obesity).

I hope you like them.

    Interesting article on hospitality. You know, I am scouring my mind for any truly unpleasant encounters with the waitstaff, but I don't think I've ever met a truly rude or cold one. Ditzy, forgetful, distracted, or dumb, maybe on occasion, but no-one who went out of his way to show his disdain for us. I think you will enjoy the Restaurant Life forums at eG. Especially if you relate your experience to some. Somehow the low pay and rude customers become the bottom line. Typical conversation (customer and waiter):
    C. I had this waiter. He did this and that. How annoying! I couldn't eat in comfort.
    W. You should be glad to get such service. Or maybe you're just a tool. These people get paid peanuts to serve idiots.
    C. If you hate it so much, why not quit?
    Then all hell breaks loose.

    About the obesity epidemic, I think there is too much of an association with borderline emaciation and glamor (see: Hilton, Lohan) without realizing that these people are all pretty miserable, millions of dollars notwithstanding. On the other hand, cardiovascular disease and diabetes always seem to be climbing. I engage in regular enough activity I think to compensate for my taste buds' control over me, but most of my frustration stems from my perceived unattractiveness of my shirtless self! :P
