I went to my neighborhood fast food Chinese restaurant/take-out joint. I wasn't sure what I wanted, so instead of going through the drive-thru like I usually do, I went inside. While I was waiting for my food, I noticed the wall calendar to the left of where people stand to order their food.
As I read the calendar, I noticed it was for the "Year of the Rat." Agghh!! Why would you put a calendar up in a RESTAURANT drawing unnecessary attention to vermin?
Then, I thought, "Shut up, dummy. It's a cultural difference and you should embrace it instead of criticizing it."
Then, I noticed the year on the calendar: 2008. 2008. Nah, that's not a cultural difference, that's just dumb. Let's leave up a two year old calendar with a big picture of a rat on it where people are ordering their food and in direct view of where people sit to eat.
