Wassup Wit Dat!

Baggage Grindz

May 28th, 2015

Once da airline industry started to go 'ร  la carte', it was only a mattah of time dat da rest of da world started to follow suit..... all da way down to our everyday happenings.

Da billions dat da airlines have raked in from da baggage, food, headphones and even blanket/pillow 'extras', tapped into an unknown revenue source so any business would naturally follow suit seeing how nothing is inclusive anymore.

In Hawai'i, we all enjoy onolicious grindz - fast food or homemade - and with dat, we get certain side action 'needs' determined by da grindz you are eating:

Jack-In-Da-Box - gotta get da buttermilk dressing.
Arby's - gotta get da horsey sauce.
Pizza Hut - gotta eat da crust with ranch dressing.
Rainbow's Drive-In - gotta get gravy ALL (yes, including da mac salad of course!)
Mitsu-Ken - extra garlic sauce to cover da rice
Sushi (any kine) - GOTTA have wasabi and (my preference) KIKOMAN. ๐Ÿ˜€

Wat about french fries? You gotta have ketchup right?

Ask yourself dis. You see a plate lunch full of fries and normally da first thing you look for is da ketchup right? Well for me its da sriracha but you tink dat itty bitty paper dipping cup is enough for dat ENTIRE plate?

So naturally our friend asked for a few more cups and was told each cup would be.....

Wassup Wit Dat!

EACH cup costs fifty cents! Really? Really??

Wen you dine out plate lunch kine, there's something about paying 'extra' dat always makes you do a no discount double check. It's not like you asking for an extra side or an extra plate wea you would naturally assume to pay for da cost but for a condiment das like on EVERY table wen you dine out? You $h!tt!n me right?

I was totally trippin' out. FIFTY CENTS for dat puny cup of ketchup and they nevah even bat an eye. You know how much da fries were? Almost $5. No ask for watah either, they charge you for da full price of a soda unlike oddah places wea you might pay for just da cup. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Unrealz.

I guess it really shouldn't be a surprise as Jack's charges you for their buttermilk (but if you ask at da window instead of wen ordering, most times they give it free ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), Pizza Hut charges for their sauces but at least they come in 'pretty' packages and more too. I'm surprised dat Rainbow's charges you for gravy all (da ONLY place I've evah been dat charged for gravy).

Wea else has condiments or 'extras' come at ร  la carte prices besides da kine fancy shmancy places? Wat oddah kine 'extra' you like on your food and wea? I like da kine extra green onions on my spicy ahi and ask for a small bowl on da side (no charge). ๐Ÿ˜† You tink it's pupule to charge for condiments?

btw, we asked for three chopsticks and guess wat?

Was free.

LMAO! ๐Ÿ˜† WWD! ๐Ÿ˜†

    I'm pretty sick of being nickle and dimed by the airlines. The food stuff is annoying too, but at least I can sort of understand it. I've seen folks abuse condiments and ask for or take more than a reasonable amount. Great Grandma used to raid the napkins, sugar, cream, ketchup, etc. wherever she went, and never could be persuaded not to do it. But, 50 cents for a bitty cup of ketchup is ridiculous -- 25 cents at the max!

    Howzit BL,

    Ige's Lunchwagon and Catering in Aiea give pickles onions wit your plate lunch fo free if you ask.

    As luck would have it, have not experienced any price gouging yet. Of course, being ma ku le means I am not in circulation as you younger fellas.

    You gotta see this one HUGE GUY that goes to the Starbuck's on Alakea St. He hovers by the coffee "prep" station and does his side-eye surveillance then takes handfuls of sugar packets and napkins on a DAILY BASIS.

    I tink dat buggah is one diabetic or someting with one mean drool problem.


  6. Ken:

    I sooo agree with all of you that we are being nickeled quartered and dollared to death. I would much rather they charge me a fair price with condiments included in that price, they break even any way. Some people will want more ketchup and other won't. 50 cents for ketchup??? I would have given the fries back and asked for my money. The fries did not cost them much more than 50 cents wholesale.


  7. kamaaina808:

    They do that at many local restaurants when you order one 'entree' - da rice is extra, I kid you not. But what I wanna know is where you get those fries where da ketchup is extra?? Better not be Zippy's .. i will die. ๐Ÿ™


  8. Sally:

    I don't eat out much, so this 50ยข thing for a thimble of ketchup is ridiculous to me! I guess I gotta start bringing my own little mini Tupperware with ketchup in it if I plan to go someplace...


  9. titagirl:

    Hah? What place you went? No WAY I eating dea! Bruddah Lance, you gotta email me and LMK. boycott!


  10. jb33564:

    If you unravel the ketchup cup, you can best bet that it will hold up to three more times of ketchup. Just thought I'd share.

    E Komo Mai to WWD! Ken! Wow, still get Lurkah coming out? ๐Ÿ˜†

    I totally agree/believe in da 'all in one' pricing. Nobody likes to hear extra for dis and extra for dat. It's really nice to have da airlines do da 'all included' pricing instead of us thinking we scoring on a $199 roundtrip airfare to come to find out dat taxes, fuel, surcharges etc comes out to anoddah $150. Why not just say it's $349?

    I would have given the fries back and asked for my money.

    Ha ha ha! My friend did return it for 'spite' but it was also under cooked and cold still!

    I expect dat at higher end places wea most things are a la carte, but a fast food diner??

    But what I wanna know is where you get those fries where da ketchup is extra?? Better not be Zippy's .. i will die. ๐Ÿ™

    No, not Zippy's....... they already include in their price condiments, retirement, 401k, medical, dental and OT. ๐Ÿ™„
