Yeah, its fairly rare I hit any chain restaurants up. Cracker Barrel Ive been to probably twice in last 10 years. One chain that gets laughed at but I think is probably the best is Olive garden. Salad and sticks are awesome and the food is decent.

Im not a big breakfast eater but Panera Bread is money. Bagels, pastries and their egg soufflés are all amazing. But PB is a rip off outside of breakfast.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

95% of the time if I eat breakfast out especially on a road trip I will go to Denny's and get an omelette with hash browns. I can eat the same thing over and over again forever. Right now at home 95% of the time it is a cheese omelette with fresh jalapenos cooked into the egg and pickled jalapenos inside with hot salsa dumped on top.

Howard Johnson has been gone from the DC/MD/VA area for about 35 years.

I lived in Southern California when the Howard Johnson's restaurants started disappearing, there was still one in Riverside Ca when I lived there in the mid 90's.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Leased a Chevy and returned it in October. GM said I'd receive a final invoice within 45 days. Never got it. Today I get a Chase Credit Journey alert in my email that I now have a delinquent account on my credit score. Went online and this is not a rarity. Will never be getting a GM again. Now I have to try to call them Monday and get them to reverse it, otherwise, I'm going to have to file a dispute thru one of the credit agencies. People said their score got dinged like 75-100 points. So messed up!! Never called or sent an email or anything either. Shady bastards.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Waking up and reaching over for your phone and its 6:59 am .. your daily alarm is set for 7.

Something about that sequence that grinds my gears. Like it forces my brain into critical decision making 10 seconds into being semi awake.

Do I hurry to try and turn off my alarm before the loud ringing starts or do I just let it go off and have to listen to the loud ringing alarm?

Either way, 10 seconds into your morning you have to pick the lesser of two evils - (1) going quickly through a series of actions in turning your alarm off before the bomb explodes in your face .. or (2) just laying there tortured not knowing when your head will be filled with ringing alarm sounds, the only thing you do know is its coming.

The best? When you wake up early, go to check the phone assuming it will say some bullshit like 6:59 but instead its only like 5:43 and you my friend get like a super extended snooze bar break.
