I’ve certainly had restaurant experiences I’d rather forget, even at a few high-brow places. And we all love to be a critic every now and then. It can be really gratifying to impart some wisdom on how the pork paillard really could have used a little more seasoning on the meat itself. Yeah, I know about the importance of seasoning every layer. No big deal.

Self-checkout is, to me, the latest and most all-inclusive version of The Grocery Game.
