Cafeteria Rant

Dear School of Higher Learning:

You suck.

I do appreciate that you allow me to go to your school, and into your completely insane program. I can also appreciate the fact that because of your school I will get to where I need to be in the the shortest amount of time possible.

But do you need to make everything else just suck?

Let me use your cafeteria as an example. It's nice. Clean. Convenient. What little of the food I've tried was pretty good. And I do have to hand it to you, you've totally cornered the market. There is no other food establishment within walking distance.

But damnit, why make your food so expensive? See that picture of my pasta? Small container of noodles and sauce. Eight bucks. I know of others who have bought plain turkey sandwiches and it set them back almost ten.

Not only that, but there is no common sense. Signs are not clearly posted listing how much things are worth, so we go up to the register blind... and hope that we have enough money. You know that between 11-1 is when you will see the most people in there... I know, I always get stuck in it. Why is there only one register? What should be a quick trip in, ends up taking most of my lunch break (which is a whole story unto itself).

Three bucks for a beef patty? I'm sorry, but no.

Perhaps I'll like you more when it's the end of the semester and your on-campus students will be giving away their swipes. When that happens I will be all over it.

But for now, I'm hitching a ride to the deli all the way at the end of the road.

Dude. That totally sucks.

$8 for boiled noodles and sauce. Blech.

It reminds me a bit of food at the kindergarten cafeteria. But they only have to pay $2.10, and I think it comes with milk.
