That would definitively make you feel better, and the waitress a lot hotter.

Me: (trying to help the confusion) do you need my ID or something?
Waitress: umm it's a drink?
I nod
Waitress: um yes please let me see it, anyone who looks under 40 sorry no offense
Me: oh no problem
Waitress: so a new, castle? That's a beer or a cocktail? Sorry I don't drink much

I tend not to be rude to people handling my food and drinks, also I am fairly certain she was new, and she was extremely polite, and apologetic, so I'm not going to flip out on some poor waitress like a dbag, but if she wasn't new then what the hell is wrong with her? I don't care if you don't drink you should know what your restaurant is selling. I have a feeling many people besides myself ask before almost anything else, "what do you have on draft?"

Oh and she came back to tell me they were out of newcastle, so I still haven't had it, is this a good beer?

TGIF is a place for kid's hamburgers. A place that doesn't allow 'rare' meat or has Sam Adams as the only halfway decent beer is just a typical chain restaurant that only cares for being bland and not being liable for anything.

I can't stand not being able to order a steak rare or my hamburger medium-rare. Places that don't allow that are basically saying they don't serve quality product.

On that note you should know this about Fridays. SWMBO ordered a garlic chicken and shrimp plate and asked if they could really hold back/ go easy on the spices, (she can't eat them due to IBS) the waitress said let me ask, and disappeared. The manager then comes out to explain to us that he is sorry but they can't alter it because all of their food is pre-prepared and pre packaged, sauces and spices on it. They just open the frozen package and cook it. I was NOT surprised, it was just sad that the illusion of a cook back there actually preparing the food was gone. Like I said we went because someone gave us a gift card for Christmas. I said to SWMBO well looks like we won't be back until this time next year, haha.

It is what it is though I guess. From a business stand point it makes sense. They make a killing this way, and with complete consistency even from one location to the next. The meals cost them so little. Then they hire a kid to operate a skillet for a few bucks an hour, cooking up these things as fast as he can. If the price of the food reflected the process a little better I would still go. But restaurant prices for a frozen bag skillet meal they sell at the grocery store, that is hard for me to buy into. I guess their food is like their beer selection; standard, basic, macro, and well advertised for the sheep to throw money at.

My wife and I work at the same place, so we took ours to work. You can get some semi decent stuff, and it's better than the crap they have around the office. We have a French Press at home... Doesn't get much better than that in my book.

I don't offer it. If he showed some interest I wouldn't tell him no. I just keep some easy drinking commercial beers around for when he comes around.

If I told him his cooking would make good dog food he would loose his marbles!!!!! If something is not your cup of tea, cool, no biggie, I get that. Just have some courtesy !!!! Ah, brothers......if they don't try to take you out at the knees then what are they good for?

Yeah my wife worked at Red Lobster back in the early 90's and it was the same thing there. The only thing that didn't come in a bag and that was prepared fresh was the salads. Just like you said, it's the McDonald's approach...a Big Mac in California needs to taste exactly like a Big Mac in France.
