Today's social dilemma came from an email I received from Barbara. This is something that happened to her at a local restaurant. Check it out. Hi Jaime. My name is Barbara and I listen to your social dilemma every day. I usually end up talking about it with my friends at some point during the day. I had something happen to me last week at a local restaurant (I won't say which one) and I wanted to know what you thought about it and whether it would be a good social dilemma. I wanted to grab a quick lunch in the middle of the day. I had been running around with different work stuff, but I wasn't that hungry. So when the waitress asked for my order, I ordered something off the children's menu. The waitress took a minute and then said, I'm sorry if you don't have a child with you, you can't order off the children's menu. I explained that I wasn't that hungry and that the child's portion would be perfect for me, but still she wouldn't let me do it. I asked for the manager and he said it was policy that adults could not order off the childrens menu. I didn't understand the policy but it was clear I wasn't getting anywhere with them so I just left and ended up going somewhere else. I thought this would be a good social dilemma though. Should adults be able to order off the Kids Menu? I think we should, what do you think? Thanks Jaime. Keep up the good work - Barbara
Well I definitely think that adults should be able to order off the Kids menu. What difference does it make. It's just a smaller portion and you're still paying. I'd love to hear what you think. Do most restaurants have this as their policy? Have you ever tried to eat off the kids menu? Let me know what you think on the 98-3 TRY Facebook page.
