    The Audi Driver

    I'm going to call him 'Mark.' Which is, close. He's bald, thin, late twenties, maybe early thirties, chain smokes, binge drinks coffee, and likes drama. He could have been a character in Beverly Hills 90201. Or whatever the zip code is. Although I don't see him hooking up with Jennifer Aniston, if you know what I mean. Well we will leave it at that. He's an expert at everything. Like driving sports cars. 'I drive an Audi because I like to push my cars HARD!'

    Dude.

    It's an older model A4 sedan. With an automatic transmission. It is an overpriced passenger sedan like your grandfather might drive, except he drives a Caddy and likes the room and air conditioning. It is NOT a sports car. It's basically what a Toyota Solara is to a middle aged single woman. Not really practical. Not sporty. The Olympic rings give it status I guess, but you might as well put a BMW emblem on a Corolla. Oh and by the way it's always in the shop.

    I don't get it. But that might just be me. Someone clue me in.

    The Burger Guy

    There are certain occupations that... never mind, I don't want to get in to it. He doesn't come across as an individual that probably rode to school in a Thomas 'Mighty Mite' series bus, yet, he can't get an order right to save his life.

    Menu item: Salad. Additions: Ahi tuna, chicken, or steak.

    "I would like a salad with Ahi tuna."

    He rings it up as a salad, and an Ahi tuna sandwich. When I explain to him that I wanted the Ahi tuna on the salad, he tells me that he is very confused by that.

    **Burger Girl - "You want your Ahi tuna rare, right?"

    Me - "Yes."

    Burger Girl - "And no croutons, right?"

    Me - "Yes."

    Burger Girl - "And you told him that, right?"

    Me - Sigh.

    **Post clarification edit. Burger Girl was doing order delivery service - retrieving the orders from the cooks' counter to the customers' pickup counter, and rendering QA/QC services at the same time for burger guy, who was manning the register.

    I’m sitting here on a beautiful sunny day, trying to come up with a name that isn’t Mark, but is close to Mark. So far, all I’ve come up with is that I need more hobbies.

    Sort of like the time I was in a S.E Asian McDonalds....

    Would you like flies or lice.??

    And why is it I won't eat at McDonalds in the US, but I will in other countries.??

    For me it’s because the alternative often includes things like congealed pork blood, or undercooked intestine. I’m not going to assume my tasty Shanghai Big Mac doesn’t include those things and worse. But at least I’m blissfully unaware of it.

    I had the fries like a real american, my lady friend, now my wife, had the rice. Which seems to be a favorite option in the area.

    The dual clutch DSG is way better than the manual in the A4, so you might want to rethink your post.

    You are warm. How warm are you? Think about Cartman getting an anal probe, but not quite having flames shoot out his ***.

    No rethinking needed. I laugh when I see those things drive by, it's like hearing a person that is just learning to drive on a stick.

    Nothing wrong with DSG's. They are a lot like mating mice. Lots of bumps and squeaks.

    Heh - there used to be a burger joint, more of a shack, that I would hit once in a while. It was owned by a Korean family. The first time I was there, I was flummoxed when asked, "Do you want egg rolls with that?"


    Edit: Hey! It's still there! Looks like it has a new owner and a new name, but it's still the same old shack it always was. But no egg rolls on the menu anymore.

    Don't discount the Koreans on burgers. They like them! The burger joint by the office where I get those massive double bacon behemoths is Korean owned.

    I won't discount anyone on burgers.

    From the website of the new place, it looks like they haven't changed the burgers at all. Used to be they'd wrap them in paper, then put them in a brown paper bag. By the time you got to wherever you were going to eat (there were only a couple stools inside), that paper bag was a grease soaked. It was glorious.

    Here's something the new place has that you might like, the En Fuego double burger salad:

    Dang it, now I have to go there!

    I talked them in to giving me that one raw. It is sushi grade, so why not. The problem is, once you cook it to the point where the red starts to turn to pink, it's gone. Overcooked. Ruins the taste and texture. I don't mind seared on the outside slightly, but leave the inside alone. It should look like...

    ... nevermind.

    But that name isn’t like Mark. It is Mark. I’m Eric. And if I spell my name Erik…I’m still Eric. Just with a K. I’m thinking more along the lines of something like this.
