Seriously. WTF is up with Applebees? This is like the third time now that the server has put my meal in front of me, then asked me to cut into my steak to see if it's done right. No, I will not hack up my steak for you! If your "chef" doesn't know what "medium" is, fire him/her. All I want you to do is place the meal in front of me, ask me if I need anything else, then quickly get out of my face. Trust me. If anything is wrong with my food, I'll let you know. Rant complete. Back to my Trout Slayer already in progress.

Preach it, Reverend!

In their defense though, it is sometimes tough to tell if horsemeat is "medium" or if it has some tendon running through it which is changing the texture.

I always save my salad for the rest of the meal to come and eat everything at once. I always have to fight the wait staff to keep my salad......

That annoys me too about the meat.

Also annoying to me is when I go for a meal and some spotty faced retard thinks that they will get a better tip by acting like they are my new bestest friend in the world ever and talk to me as they would if they were texting their prepubescent boyfriend/girlfriend.
Just get me my damned food, stick it front of my face and GTFO kid. If I wanted to be your friend you would have seen me outside your school with my hand down my pants already.
Now, THAT is how you get a tip!

PS Get of my fooking lawn too while you're at it!

I know my steak is done right if it's still kicking when it gets to me. That's all I need.

Yeah, I check the pulse on mine to see if it is done. When it slows down I pull it off the fire.

I actually found a big ol' vein/artery in my steak there before. That was pretty much the end of that meal.

They are doing that to cover their own ass, They serve the steak on a hot plate, it is meant to be eaten directly. If you let it sit there for 20 minutes, it might turn from medium to medium well. What they want is an affirmation that the steak was delivered to you as you ordered it, and that you were satisfied, so that you cant ask for a refund later on when your steak overcooks itself.
