Do *you* know what "envy"means?
You're justifying envy. You said it. I'm just repeating what you
You obviously don't know what you're talking about.
Envy (from Latin invidia) is a resentment which "occurs when someone
lacks another's quality, achievement or possession and wishes that the
other lacked it."
I don't recall my parents ever taking the family out to a fast-food
restaurant (there weren't many). We would occasionally go out to a
restaurant but certainly not once or twice a month, even before my
father died. Rarely, in fact, unless we were traveling.
OTOH, we've been going out three times a week, lately (over the
weekend), but never to a fast-food restaurant, again, unless we're
traveling (eat on-the-go). Don't need the fast part - would rather
have the food part.

If I'm working I want the fast part. But it surprises me how little
actual difference there is in price between my wife and I eating at a

Exactly. At work, I'm generally eating out at least once a week,
always to a real restaurant. Of course, I'm not picking up the check
(suppliers buy). ;-) Otherwise, I bag my lunch.
If I'm working around the house, I won't eat until I'm done. If we go
out, then, it's a real restaurant. You're right, the difference isn't
significant, at least for two people. There's also the tip; that's
Eating out? We never go to a fast food joint to eat junk food.
Respectable eatery costs ~100.00 per person including tip at least.
Going on a cruise is another option. There are all kinda good deals
since economy tanked.
Really? I generally figure about half that. Of course, we rarely
have any kind of alcohol when we eat in restaurants.
Perhaps we have differing definitions of "respectable". We don't do
"cuisine". The places we go most often (in no particular order):
Some quite tasty ethnic meals can be had for $25 for two people.
That's all in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Prices are of course higher
in a large metropolis.
You left out my old country Korea. Korean beef BBQ is good!
The place we may be going to eat is formal suit and tie place.
Or if I want freebee we can push ourselves to in-laws' private
club house, he,he. Some people live to eat, it seems but we eat to live.
If I can live without eating, that will be just fine with me.
Here in Calgary AB, there are more hidden rich folks than other cities
and consumer price and inflaation rate is higher than national average.
Likewise average income of household is higher too. We're retired but we
have been able to manage so far. Unemployment rate in the city
at the moment is ~4.3%. I used to live in S.S. Marie ON, way back in the
'60s. Then to Toronto and transfered out here in the spring of '70
where I raissed family and retired. Now just two of us and a dog in an
empty nest. No more cat. Our old cat died in April this year and if we
get another kitten, it may outlive losing us.
We love Italian food(our daughter-in-law is Southern Italian) I don't
like French cuisine, just good to look at, nothing much to eat,LOL!

A meal at a respectable eatery costing $100+ per person
is your idea of a good deal? I didn't see anyone here talking
about high end restaurants. Sure, you *can* spend $100 a
person at a high end restaurant. Nothing wrong with that.
But that isn't the typical dining out experience I'd bet
for 100% of the people on the newsgroup.
