It's Not Special If Everyone Does It Badly

All the hotel chains now offer a "continental breakfast". I've seen a few, very few, that are actually worth having. Most feature your choice of raisin bran or fruit loops, a basket of brown fruit, envelopes of oatmeal in the flavors that nobody likes, stacks of bread and thawed waffles next to a toaster, and a selection of stale mini-muffins and even more stale mini-danish. All washed down with coffee-colored hot water and watered-down orange or apple juice.

You know what I'd like to see? How about a pot of really good coffee? That's all.

And if people bitch because they want free bad food? Give 'em directions to the nearest 7-11 and tell 'em to buy their own freakin' frozen waffles.

1 I'd be happy with Iced Coffee, w/ half & half, but I'm learning that it seems to be a cafe delicacy relegated exclusively to the Tri-State Area. Order Iced Coffee in the South, and peeps look at you all funny, like you're asking for chocolate covered ants, or something. You can't make this stuff up. [Sorry, I had to.]

2 Yep, I'd love JUST GOOD COFFEE. I'd gladly sacrifice all the crappy kid-fingered sneezed-on bagels and bread-for-toasting for JUST GOOD COFFEE.
