I come to you today with a tale of woe that is the QR menu.
I spend most of my time in front of a computer. If I’m not writing up blogs, I’m cataloguing magic the gathering cards. I use two computer screens when I’m on the clock. I’m also doing a little volunteer teaching – which involves more technology. I’ve yet to mention the chatbot I’m building.
The bottom line is that I am on the internet a lot. Which is why I have opted to go without a data plan.
This was a fine decision until I recently started going back out to restaurants; where I have learned about The QR Menu.
It seems unnatural to force a customer to put their cellular devices in danger of water/food damage in order to view what’s available at the restaurant.
Fortunately, the consequences of this menu require me to ask for one and establish a complaint on them; which normally results in more socialization for this, very heavy introvert.
It would turn out that I’m not the only one that misses the old-fashioned menu. Inclusive of that observation is a recollection of an experience I had eating out, recently, where I learned that other people also make it a habit to put away their phones when they go out to eat for the same reason that I go without a data plan.
In another conversation with a fellow diner (different restaurant), I learned that I’m a minority. It just gets me thinking about how the original reason I turned off the data was so that I could afford to eat at a restaurant.
That’s it. That’s today’s tale of woe that is The QR Menu.
Seriously. Some of these places aren’t even offering wi-fi without a data signal. What is that? How am I supposed to even. . . ?
