As I was in line today in Dunkin Donuts I heard one person order a chicken biscuit and another an Oreo Cappuccino. Am I the only one blown away by these selections? It’s 7:13am and people are eating chicken and Oreo milkshakes for breakfast.
Now where I start to get confused is if I should be disturbed by the people or the establishments offering these choices. My first thought was to blame Dunkin but this is incorrect. A business primary function is to serve it’s customers and they are offering what the customers want.
On to the customers. Are the customers uneducated, know but don’t care, or just flat out oblivious? You could make the argument that I know beer is not good for me but I drink it anyway. If I order a beer at 9 am is that any different than this example? For me it feels different. This is because I rate my selection of drinking beer as one of my worst vices. However, if you are eating an Oreo Milkshake at 7am, I have a feeling this isn’t your worst habit.
I don’t exactly know why ordering chicken at 7am is wrong but my instinct tells me it is. My “wrong” instinct hits red alert. Enough to make me want to post about it and try to (not) get opinions on the subject matter. Does anyone else feel strongly about this matter?
