Last night I went to II Brothers (also know as the ‘other brother’) with a large group of people. We had so many people that we had to get a separate table for the kids. Yep, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
My kids were on their own and ordered for themselves. Now I gave them no instruction whatsoever, so they could have ordered pretty much anything and extra desserts and I wouldn’t have been the wiser. After a nice time visiting with my friends, it came time to pay the bill. I neglected to order anything, apparently I was talking when she came to take our orders, so I just had my iced tea and the kids stuff.
The bill came, I looked at it and immediately thought it was wrong. I asked her if there should be two hamburger kids meals on there, not just one. She said, “No, it’s correct. They decided to share a meal.” After picking my jaw up off the floor, I was speechless. My kids ARE learning not to be wasteful! It’s really working!!!! I don’t cry and I almost had tears in my eyes!!!!!
Every time we go to a restaurant, I always ask them to share if they’re not that hungry. We can always order more food, so just order what you know you can eat. Okay, so I also bellyache about the price of food too, again, making the point of not being wasteful. Wow. It really works. My kids are so awesome. (no bias there, of course) 😉
