What Is The Scoop

We stopped at Steak ‘n’ Shake the other day for a bowl of Chili.  Which by the way is much, much better than Wendy’s.  I like to go to Steak ‘n’ Shake,  even though their quality has lapsed since I used to go as a kid.  There are two things I can not understand.

1) To me and my contemporaries, a milk shake is something you drink.  I remember at the baseball games, whether it was a pee wee game or a high school game, if you hit a Home Run,  some one from town would treat you to a 25 cent milk shake.  That was a treat for me, although I only hit one home run in my life, you consider my allowance for doing my chores all week was 10 cents.  The local drug store was the best place to get a shake.  The restaurants weren’t bad, don’t get me wrong, it was just something extra about the drug store milk shake.  My favorite was, and is Chocolate Ice Cream, Chocolate Milk, and Chocolate syrup.  They were drinks, you sucked them up through a straw.  No whipped cream and cherry on top.  Steak ‘n’ Shake somehow got confused and think they are like  a Sundae.  Ever try to suck a Steak ‘n’ Shake  shake up a straw.  You have to use a spoon just like with  a Sundae.  Then they top it off with whipped cream and a cherry.  Do they think only women buy milk shakes dressing them up like that.  I always have to find someplace to put this dressing so I can get my spoon in.  I usually tell them I want a drinking milk shake not an eating milk shake, with no dressing.  My local Steak ‘n’ Shake now knows what I mean.  I guess they figure they make more money by not blending the ice cream and by charging extra for the dressing up.

20The other thing I don’t understand.  Why in the heck did they buy Scoop Shovels for you to eat your soup with.  The thing is too big for me to get in my mouth.  I always have to ask for a spoon.  Why did they waste their money buying these unnecessary utensils.  Are they making so much they are looking at ways to waste money?

That Is How I See It.
