There are just certain places I would never eat at now that I’ve experienced so many better places (ie., red lobster, Applebee’s etc.) does that make me snobby?

Nope. As long as you can still recognize that in n out it great value for price, you’re just developing a sense of taste.

I kind of fell into this rule because I try not to eat at chain restaurants - there are so many great local places to try.

Especially in airports. I don't care how bad the travel days get, I can always hang on to the last shred of decency that I have left and refuse to be that guy sitting alone at the airport TGI Fridays.

It makes you sensible

If you're doing red lobster might as well eat McDonalds, same net effect

No, I’ve never eaten at chains or fast food places. I only get one body, I want to nourish it.

It makes you old

I don’t think I could fault anyone for not wanting to eat at Olive Garden.

Unlimited breadsticks and salad holler

I am with you - if snobby so be it. I don’t want to eat at a chain and feel like every city I am in is the same. I always seek out the local places or sometimes a smaller regional chain that I can’t get at home. This is for typical dinner out. I am however guilty of the panera/chipotle lunch routine.

But the Red Lobster cheddar biscuits are so good 🤤🤤🤤

TIL they sell the mix so you can make them yourself without having to actually go there

Hey, another question for y’all. How should I reach out to a recruiter who offered me a full time position but I rejected for a better offer? At the time I was offered the position my main concern was lack of guidance/support from leadership. Now, a year later I have experience being in a role with limited over site (not as scary as I initially thought it would be) and feel confident I would excel in the role I rejected. How would you approach this situation? Thanks in advance!!

I feel like my boss’s boss really doesn’t like me. It’s making me very insecure and feeling unappreciated. I get great feedback from my boss but then it goes to her boss and all my ideas are being shut down, she gets excited when anyone else talks even for tinniest effort, but poker face when I present. Its really bugging me... I don’t know how to overcome this. I also overheard her talking about another AD in a very negative manner(cursing) and I can’t help but this she feels the same about me

I’m one half of an in-house legal team. I followed my attorney to this company because he’s the best boss I’ve ever worked with. We are looking to add a third person, an associate.

I’ve never interviewed anyone above me. Basically just want to know they aren’t a jerk to staff.
