Mrs. maggot's Reflections on the Death of the Big Gulp or When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade!
Is there any common sense left in this world? Banning the Big Gulp has got to be the dumbest idea yet!
When the maggot family shops, we sometimes get ONE 32oz drink and four straws....it is economical, environmentally friendly, and much easier than 4 people carrying 4 smaller cups around the grocery store while pushing a loaded cart.
When we go to the Theatre we get one enormous pop corn and the bucket of beverage, it still costs the better part of twenty dollars....but it is enough for all four!
When we are "a little strapped for cash" we buy 2 litre bottles instead of 12 packs, will this new infringement on rights end up costing everyone more, or will people just stop ordering drinks at restaurants and bistros, and convienence stores?
I'm kind of a smart alec, even though I usually order water when I eat out, and split sodas with other members of my family, this new nanny state makes me want nothing more than to buy an entire case of soda and a bag of ice and a red solo cup and sit in my car in front of these establishments gleefully pouring cup after cup! As a matter of fact I think from now on when they ask me if I want a drink, I'll pull a gallon jug of the cheap fruit punch from the dollar store out of my enormous "Mom purse" and say "no thanks, I've got my own."
How about this! I might even put a half a cup of refined white sugar in a plastic container along with a fresh lemon and make lemonade right in front of them after ordering a large glass of H2O.
Take that Nanny Bloomberg.
