Nothing for me, thanks

Been there, observed that:

It’s a tale as old as time: Boyfriend takes girlfriend out to eat, girlfriend claims she’s “not hungry” — and then proceeds to eat half of the boyfriend’s meal.

Social media users have dubbed it “date night food-theft” — and in Arkansas, there seems to finally be a solution.

My Girlfriend Is Not Hungry at Mama D's

A restaurant called Mama D’s, in North Little Rock, has been serving a menu item known as the “My Girlfriend is Not Hungry,” which adds “extra french fries to your entrée, and fried chicken wings (2) or fried cheese sticks (3).”

The restaurant has been cooking up the side dish for a while now, along with several other food joints across the country, but it only recently went viral.

    Compare and contrast.

    Though I will say restaurants should have a serving size called “I want fries, but not THAT MANY fries” or similar. (I have a certain degree of admiration for Sonic’s chicken-strip dinner, which they describe as including “One (1) Onion Ring”)

    Outback Steakhouse finally realized they could sell their Bloomin’ Onion appetizer to smaller parties by offering a downsized version, so anything is possible.

    For better or worse, I have always dated women that eat so I have never experienced “Date food theft.”
