Burns My Bacon: An Open Letter to the Salt & Pepper Shaker Filler Upper
You know we always love a good rant here on ES, so it’s time to introduce our newest feature: Grinds My Gears Burns My Bacon.
As much as I love food, there are just so many little thing to complain about. Every time I go to a restaurant, deli, grocery store or coffee shop there is always something that’s just not right. It’s usually a simple thing that can be easily rectified but it persists, probably because no one has ever complained about it before. Not any more, people of ES. I’m not prepared to sit back any longer. This is a time that demands action. So, without further ado, here is your first Burns My Bacon:
You know what Burns My Bacon? Salt & pepper shakers, that’s what.
When I go to shake a little salt and pepper over my dinner I expect some of that spicy and salty goodness to effortlessly flutter over my food. What I don’t expect is for me to have to unscrew the top of the shaker and pour some in my hand to sprinkle on my food. Why do I have to do this, you ask? I’ll tell you. The smart ass who thinks it’s efficient to fill the salt and pepper so far to the top that there is no room to move, that’s why. So, Mister Salt & Pepper filler upper, don’t fill up to the top! It’s not right, it’s not funny and it’s just plain annoying.
