The Average Couple Spends 132 Hours A Year Deciding What To Eat
The Daily Mail has found out that American couple's are wasting too much of their life figuring out what to eat! And the numbers will shock you!
Look, at a vending machine I get it, I myself get brain lock in front of a vending machine more often than not. But at a restaurant, come on, get your life together people!
This happens to be a pet peeve of mine. For the most part I'm a quick orderer at a restaurant. I don't like much variation in my life so I find myself ordering what I know I like a particular establishment and I usually stick with it. If I do order something else, it's because I've had 30 minutes to look over the menu while my wife is pretending to pick something other than chicken parm. We love Italian.
What really gets my goat, is when we go to a restaurant where you wait in line to order, in full view of their menu on the wall, and when we get to the counter she's still undecided. So, needless to say, I know exactly what this story from the Daily Mail is talking about. In fact, I have my "wait 30 minutes to order" merit badge.
According to a new survey, the average American couple spends 132 hours every year deciding what to eat.
That breaks down to an average of about 21 minutes per day. And that means by your 50th anniversary, you'll have spent 275 entire days trying to figure out what you guys are going to eat.
Believe me when I say this, if I was single I could set the land speed record for ordering food.
However, when it comes down to brass tacks, I don't mind it that much anymore, it gives us more time to talk and laugh.
