I work in a restaurant and I’m surprised at how many people try to bring in outside food. They will bring in hot dogs, chowder bowls, pretzels, ice cream cones, etc. Then they act shocked when you tell them that they can’t bring outside food inside. Some of them get mad about it. They will try to argue, they will try to justify it, and they will come up with some bullshit excuse as to why they should be allowed to bring it in. The bottom line is that you’re going to a restaurant to eat the food that it offers. That’s the whole point of going there. You don’t need to go to a restaurant if you already have food in your grubby little hand. So don’t go. Stay outside, enjoy your outside food, and you can come in once it’s finished to see what they have to offer inside. It’s as simple as that. You don’t go to the movies to watch Netflix on your phone. You don’t go to the bar with a beer in your hand. What makes you think it’s ok to go to a restaurant if you’re not going to eat their food? Oy, people suck.
