The supermarkets would have you believe it is all single people can do to turn the microwave on for their ready meal for one without crying. Perhaps they think health and safety terms such as ‘Sell by date’ and ‘shelf life’ are a little too close to home.
The restaurant asked me to pre-order my food because they’re going to be busy. For a brief moment, I felt guilty about using a table that could be taken by an ACTUAL couple. Then I saw they had Cotes De Boeuf on the menu, and that passed.
