    Prices went up at In-N-Out. My usual cheeseburger (with onions) and medium diet coke has gone from (tax included) $6.56 to $6.78 to $7.00 in the last 6 months. It's still super cheap, so I am not complaining. I mean where else can you get lunch for 7 bucks?

    Great news. Corporate profits are at record highs. No reason to not pay your employees more.

    Fast food is all garbage.

    You will be paying more to kill yourselves.

    That's as bright as this guy.

    They just raised the price of the cheeseburgers by 10 cents today or yesterday.

    The best app to use for fast food and good deals is McDonald's. You can get a big Mac combo meal for $6.50 with the app. And they have good rakeback with their rewards. Spend $15 and get a free McChicken or cheeseburger. That's like 20% rakeback.

    Not true at all. 90% of my posts are not complaints. In this very thread I posted earlier and it was not a complaint (not really).

    Anyway, go screw yourself.

    What’s the point Frank? You either pay to live or die. Hopefully it’s at an Arby’s

    The single purpose of life is to last longer. You will be eaten at some stage.

    Are you shitting on high school kids and their first job?

    This just speeds up the inevitable replacement of low wage workers with robotics and AI.

    Minimum wage increase is short term positive long term destructive for entry level jobs.


    Kids don't understand what the experience of a full service gas station was back in the day. Now its you and a credit card and you lucky if they have fresh windex out. The person who really gets fucked is the 15 year old boy who is denied an opportunity to do entry level work on cars. Shame

    Funny you mention this, because there's a fairly new (2022) gas station by me, and I noticed that the hours were shitty. Like it was closed by 8pm. Whenever I tried to go in the late evening or middle of the night, I couldn't get gas there.

    Anyway one day I'm driving by and I see the pumps all lit up, yet the little mini-mart on the property was dark. I stopped by and, indeed, the pumps were turned on, but you couldn't interact with a human being. I filled up, and chalked it up to the dude forgetting to turn the pumps off (something I once saw occur at another gas station by me, which closes at 10).

    But no. Apparently the owner decided just to leave everything on 24/7, even if he leaves the property by 8. So for about 12 hours per day, that gas station has zero employees, yet is open. I wonder how long until dude realizes that it's not worth his time (or worth paying an employee) to be there at all, and just lets it run itself.

    This is because many restaurants don't pay rent, but instead have a deal with the landlord to give a certain percentage of gross sales to them, regardless of profit.

    Some clever owners started using this 3% surcharge trick in order to avoid passing that 3% on to the landlord. I'm not sure how it's legal, but it is somehow. I learned this from a friend who owns an LA restaurant. I went down to his place and noticed this 3% bullshit. I told him later, "I don't want to tell you how to run things, but just letting you know this sort of thing really gets customers angry, and I think you'd be better off just adding 3% to each item's price, as that won't be noticed nearly as much." He then explained to me that the 3% doesn't get shared with the landlord, which is a big savings to him. I then felt like a fool for giving advice to someone who knew way more about the industry than I did, and I apologized for the suggestion.
