Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

If elected, I promise...

...to appoint a House Select Committee to investigate why, while seasoning my egg sandwich to go, it takes 5 pepper packets just to result in what appears to be the leavings of a constipated fly, while a single salt packet yields enough NaCl to cure a freshly-killed moose.

What, you are opposed to the free market solution?

Obviously they also supply Whataburger with these fine prepackaged products, too.

I'm at a ratio of 8 to 1, although I rarely use more than 1/3 of the 1.

I'll let them know if I run across any moose, though.

Regards,
Rabbit.

Salt is cheaper, and people use it more than pepper. There's no accounting for tastes. Personally, I carry around a small bottle of Tabasco in a pocket of my vest if I think I am going to be eating out anywhere.

Salt is cheap. Pepper isn't.

I see quality ground black pepper for $11.09/lb retail, so the .7g normal serving size costs 1.7 cents retail, or about 0.2 cents if you're buying by the ton. A teaspoon would be a bit over 2g, or 4.8 cents retail. That's some big money you're demanding they throw in with your overpriced low-grade food.

Of course, the tiny packets also result in a lot of packaging waste since you're going to get your gram or so anyway, even though that means you're tearing open a ridiculous number of packets to get it.

kd5nrh: Over billions of servings ... a fraction of a cent is big money.

While you're at it, figure out the conspiracy behind the inability to open a ketchup packet while wearing a uniform without wearing it. Same goes for mustard and coffee. You've got my vote. Actually, I like your issues much better than the current crop of presidential hopefuls...I'm writing you in.

Roger that, Kvegas. I've a friend with Columbus, OH PD. They wear white uniform shirts and white peaked caps (my friend calls them "sinister ice cream men"). I could never eat or drink anything but bottled water in that outfit.
