Fact: Food lasts much longer when you're the one paying for it
@Anonymous Jack III, if it doesn't have mold, it doesn't look weird, and it doesn't smell weird, the date's a liar.
@Anonymous Jack III, except with fresh fruit and veggies like pineapple and cantaloupe and eggplant, that shjt seems to expire after 2 days when you buy it yourself. But at mom n dads house? A week easy
@PunnyBaker, who can afford that stuff?
@Gothem, fresh food it's cheaper than boxed. But nothing is as cheap as ramen so depends lol
@Davrial, Actually the date is in fact a liar. Most companies will set it like a week ahead of when it actually starts to go bad to trick people into buying product sooner which gives better long term sales due to more frequent shopping
@TriangleTesticles, true for the most part. But i remember opening some sliced turkey a week after the date and smelling it to see if it was still good. Immedietly started blowing chunks just from a wiff. It was a learning experience.
@WelI Obviously, GAWDAMMIT!!
And then you pull out your wallet only to realize you forgot your card.
Yes, but going out to eat burns money so much quicker. $20 a day on food out doesn't seem like much, but over a week it is. $140 at the grocery store seems like way too much, but over 3-4 weeks it isn't.
I've always disliked the word "adulting"
