I can’t decide! Should I choose This, That or The Other? If I get This, I’ll get That, but for the wrong price. If I choose The Other, I get a bit less and The Husband won’t like it.
Decisions. Decisions. Big ones and little ones alike, sometimes it takes forever to make the ‘right’ choice. Whatever that is. I always do a ‘cost’ analysis. Will it cost more money or time? Will it give me emotional, physical, or mental satisfaction? Do we have space? If I choose This will my stakeholders be happy. The stakeholders, usually The Family, are always hard to please. Reality is, you cannot please everyone. So, make sure YOU are happy with what you decide.
I didn’t realize I did this until my lunch work-buddies pointed it out. We go to a food court (there are several in the financial district) and then we break-out to get food and meet somewhere. I say I’m going to get XYZ food, but almost always get 123 food. I walk around to a minimum of 3-4, if not all, of the different choices, and then buy. Which one will satisfy the beast, Hunger? Which one is the best bang for my buck? Which one has the shortest line? Which one has the best nutritional value? Even if we all choose the same place, the combos are messing with my mind. haha
Be it gym memberships, phone plans, car, furniture, appliances, toys, clothes, EVERYTHING. It’s best when your heart wants something, no matter what logic dictates. Yeah, it costs too much, I don’t have space, and it’s not practical. I WANT it. Otherwise, I’m checking out several stores, online, talk to other people to get their opinion, then forget about it, and finally not buy/do it.
It takes me forever to decide what to order at a restaurant. And even if I have figured out what I want, it may be swayed depending what other people order. Why do we have to choose only one dish? That’s why I love dim sum. I wish other restaurants would adopt the same concept. Dim sum is a Cantonese term for a type of Chinese dish that involves small individual portions of food. A couple of ribs, a few wings, two loaded potato skins, small bowl of french onion soup, one cup of pasta, ribs, lobster, steak, slider burger, a sliver of pie, cake, ice cream, soup, garlic bread bits, french fries, garlic mashed fingers, etc
If dim sum style is just not feasible for some cuisines, then I wish there were more family style restaurants. Share!
I could go on and on about how long it took to buy my car, house, choose a phone plan, etc But, with this ‘diet’, the only thing on my mind is food.
