If you go to Olive Garden or one of that quality eatery you get bread in a basket and a little dish of foil wrapped individual pats of butter. Now if, like me, you lack fingernails most of the time unwrapping one of these can be a real chore. Even with the point of a knife you wind up with a pile of
paper bits and gooey fingers. So, thinks me, put the butter in foil or paper, sure, but in packets shaped like the ones ketchup comes in. Tear the top, squeeze the bottom and voila: butter quick and tidy!
The logical solution [8th of 7, Aug 05 2015]
(?) Almost butter
But solves the problem [vincevincevince, Aug 06 2015]
||The solution to the problem is to go to the better
class of restaurant, where the butter arrives in curls
in a dish on ice...
||Or,perhaps, softened and dispensed from a squeezy bottle,
like ketchup? [linky] [+]
||How about serving small cylinders of butter and a garlic
press type device?
||I don't understand. If you were born without fingernails, shouldn't you be eligible to apply to your government for some sort of package un-wrapping animal helper?
A small marsupial, or a cockatiel perhaps?
||//Just because the waiters wear animal costumes
and sing about every course doesn't mean its a
better class of restaurant//
||Oh, great, thanks [bigs]. Go ahead and spoil it for
great-aunt Agapantha, why don't you? Gods know
she has few enough pleasures in life since they
took away her AK-47. She can't even walk unaided
since she decided to start drinking more seriously.
A good meal, a string quintet and a singing badger
- is there something so very wrong in enjoying
that? Well, thank you so very much.
