Traveling with a Grown Kindergartner (Breakfast)

Now that I have made Boss 1 and Boss 2 laugh at my stories of eating with Boss 3 (they have both had the experience of traveling with this man) it is time to share it with you.

We all know that Boss 3 has an attachment to certain chain restaurants.  it borders on legendary.  We have not had a Chik-Fil-A here that long and the staff already knows him.  One coworker has vowed never to eat at Chik-fil-a without him.  

We flew to Connecticut on Monday.  Tuesday breakfast at the hotel was an egg casserole.  It had hashbrowns mixed in.  It wasn't bad.  He didn't eat it, called it Quiche and had cereal.  He apparently missed the French Toast sticks and sausage.  He wanted just scrambled eggs and bacon.   He compares everything to Holiday Inn/Express.  

Wednesday Morning the hotel had scrambled eggs but they had cheese in them.  I believe he might have been afraid of a wayward vegetable along the lines of an onion or pepper mixed in.  He didn't eat there that morning.  No.  he went down the road and claimed to be negotiating with the manager for a group hotel rate (this goes against our travel policy)  but wanted to check the breakfast out.   Translation - he scammed a free breakfast from Holiday Inn where we were not staying.

Thursday Morning - out hotel actually had scrambled eggs (plain) and bacon.  This was the only morning he was happy with breakfast.  Actually, it would be the only time he was happy with the hotel because, in his eyes, I'm guessing, it is all about breakfast.  

Friday Morning they had scrambled eggs layered between layers of pastry and cheese on top.  I took one look at it and said to myself. "he's not going to like breakfast this morning.'  he didn't.  We had to stop by Dunkin Donuts so he could get a chocolate milk and donuts.  (And part of me really wants to say that he'd have been happier if the adult hotel breakfast at our hotel would have had bottles of Choco milk).  

Saturday Morning breakfast was some odd (even by my standards) egg patty.  'Eggs whites' with 'Egg yolk' pressed into a shape to resembled a fried egg (which was not fried).  I grabbed one and a sausage patty and shoved them between bagel halves.  Again, I knew he'd not be thrilled with breakfast.  Nope.  he went to Holiday Inn - again - but it was 'picked over' so he again went to Dunkin Donuts.

Awesome story.  And you have my sympathy.  However, sometimes having a great story to share with co-workers makes it all worthwhile.....Sometimes.

This is awesome!  Granted I'd have just paid for a decent breakfast at Denny's myself, but my hat is off to his quest for a plain breakfast.

I love breakfast food more than any other, and since I don't eat breakfast more than once a week when I do I am not taking chances with anything unfamiliar or creative.

I know it sounds horrible for you and I feel guilty laughing.  I know it's horrible because I know how miserable I make people who travel with me...but I would so go to IHOP with this guy.

But not chik-fil-a - never chik-fil-a.

I found the whole thing amusing.  Mainly because this is someone who easily beats me in the picky eater category.

Oh man! This guy sounds so similar to my mom in law, she is horrid to eat with at a restaurant. She eats cheese, but not melted. She won't eat bread because it sticks to her mouth. Anytime we order she'll go through the menu items one by one and tell our server how yucky it all sounds. She doesn't eat lettuce, onions, mushrooms or anything seafood. Breakfast, don't get me started on that, lol. 

Is this fella single? MIL needs somebody else to make miserable, her daughter in law refuses to go out to eat with her.

Boss is married.   One of my other bosses can predict what this guy will order in just about any restaurant - because he has specific chain places he likes to eat.  (which I can relate to).

You're kidding right about the going to the Holiday Inn to eat their Breakfast??!? 

I had a boss (female) that would only go to lunch at Moe's and always ordered the exact same thing every time.  I hate that place now.

      They didn't specify a due date, but ended the video with this message. She must be due very early 2025. They did two ultrasounds - one three weeks or more before the gender reveal where they found out that they were expecting twins, and one close to the gender reveal where they found out that it was two girls. I don't have kids and don't know how early you can see if it's a boy/girl, but I assume she must be at least 10-12 weeks.

      Surprised that it was these two who won the game of Twin Roulette between the G2 Dugglings. As a twin mom myself, I was under the impression that fraternal twinning is passed down through the mom, due to it being a case of hyper-ovulation. And I'm guessing it's fraternal twins because they did a double gender reveal--if they were identical, they'd know the kiddos were boy/boy or girl/girl.

      ETA: What will this be, 4 under 4 for them? Yikes on bikes.

      There’s no way they weren’t doing a double gender reveal for the drama regardless. After all these are the first twin grandchildren. Because having kids is a competitive sport in this family. 🙄

      I always read that the genetics for twins are connected to the mother and not the father, but what a huge coincidence then that Jed who is a twin is also having twins.

      Ooh, the first twin Grand Duggars. We’ve been wondering about that for a while. Makes sense since Jed was a twin.

      Also, Naomi was fairly predictable as a name for Nurie’s 3rd. Christine is Jill’s middle name, and also Renee’s (although it’s spelled Crystine in Renee’s case).
