OMG Friendly's is DELICIOUS. The grilled cheese burger melt is my FAVORITE. Fortunately, I haven't had one on about 15 years. The mother part cracked me up as well. Don't know if you read the NY Times we ll blog ever, but there was a piece a while back about how evil doctors are for not acknowledging that a patient can have a fever with a temp as low as 99 degrees. Of course 500 people wrote in complaining about how they were TRULY sick with that temp and that doctors are a**holes. Note that none of these patients was elderly or immunocompromised. *Sigh!*
OMDG: I love Friendly's too. Even the bun of their burgers tastes fried.All those mom quotes are actual things she said to me.
I bet Friendly's has a financial relationship with some CT surgeons.
I think, Old MD, that the problem with these people is that they don't understand the difference between "I feel very poorly" and YOU HAVE SOMETHING VERY WRONG WITH YOU. :-p That and nobody wants to hear "yep. you have a virus. Wait a week- it'll go away".
Congrats on getting mentioned by the great Dr.Rob. http://distractible.org/2010/06/27/heavy-words/Now you'll become more famous.
How come I live in the heart of the South and have never heard of Friendly's? Crazy. I think that restaurant would make a fortune in our obesity problem state. That place sounds even worse than fried Twinkies, Oreos, and turkey legs at the State Fair (I didn't know that was possible).
Giz: Friendly's is pretty bad. There is honestly nothing healthy on the menu, even the healthy stuff. But it's funny how they're not even trying.
Your mom and my mom would be BEST FRIENDS!Friendly's makes that Double Down look positively healthy!
