I swear to God, this is going to be my last complaint until I get into a house and am sure I hate it here. Sunshine and light after this post, I promise.
Tonight we went into a little pub for a drink and something light for dinner. I ordered a cheeseburger. After the waitress took my order for the burger and left, I realized that she hadn’t asked me how I wanted it cooked, so I ran after her and asked her to have it grilled rare.
“Rare!” she howled, “Are you sure?!” I told her that of course I was sure, that’s why I had followed her to make certain. Guys! You won’t believe this or at least I didn’t, she told me that as a matter of course all meats are cooked to well done and that that was why she had not asked. Our faces must have been comical, disgust on hers and horror on mine.
The German people will not be allowed to cook any meats for me that should be juicy again! I thought those lamb chops were a little overcooked! If it’s stewed, braised or boiled they can handle it. I’ve heard that there is a 2 star Michelin here in Stuttgart. I’m going to have to go over there just to see if Michelin stars are different in Germany than they are in France.
My cheeseburger was done, no pink, but even then the waitress couldn’t wipe the look of disgust from her face, nor I the incredulous horror from mine. Barbarians!
