$12 salmon salad special. arrives. large filet, uncut slapped on top of bagged-type greens. Cherry tomatoes, nice and juicy, but uncut. nice cucumbers sliced, but not bite sized, along the side. dressing on the side. i have to take 5 minutes, making an effing mess cutting and tossing in a too small bowl perched on a too small table. wtf? how hard is it to make a salad ready to eat at a sit down restaurant? am i the ass or are they for lowering the bar? i must be getting old. :) i'd rather stay home and fix my own damn food.
Facebook and twitter - all social media for that matter - are not open news platforms. They do not provide an unfiltered public soapbox. We have confused social media with the free press. The algorithms employed make each feed essentially a private bubble. This is a good thing as it closely models a face to face conversation amongst friends. This is not a flaw, it is by design. Note the word 'social' in social networks.
In person, you know, real life, if someone bashes into your conversation with, "I couldn't help overhearing" and proceeds to spew a complete load of shite they are immediately and without deliberation considered assholes and are shunned.
