People like free burgers

By Barcham 13 November 2013 27

Wow

Grill’d are running their free burger lunch promo thingy today, so I figured I should get a free burger for lunch.

I figured there would be a line…

Eep

Oh...

Ahhh...

Maybe I’ll go to Nando’s instead today.

What a bunch of farken tightasses.

There are a few people waiting in line who should be digging into a healthy salad instead!

Probably people who would lie in a survey about their eating habits.

Well, better to stand in line for a free burger than for a piece of overpriced hardware that will be obsolete in less than a year… But I agree with you guys, not worth it.

I do quite like Grill’d as a general rule, but you;re so right about the buns. Their buns are easily the weakest aspect of their burgers.

All things relative, they’re still better than the buns you get from

KFC
McDonalds
Hungry Jacks
Oporto
Red Rooster
Bakers Delight
Woolies
Coles

Hm, must not be that bad after all

I’d also think that when it comes to comparisons, KFC, McDonalds, Hungry Jacks, Oporto, and Red Rooster (plus possibly others) should be the benchmark when making comparisons to Grill’d. Let’s face it – they’re a franchise, and as such have restrictions and limitations to ensure that when you go to the Grill’d in the Canberra Centre, it’s the same as the one you visited in Melbourne. Much the same reason McDonalds is so popular.

So their buns aren’t from a local artisan bakery, and the patties aren’t hand made in store. What you get is a consistent burger, that’s a step above what you can get at a lot of other franchises. Seems like a winning formula to me.

My thought exactly. People mustn’t value their own time very much. I wouldn’t queue for that long for a free lap dance with Jennifer Hawkins let alone a mediocre burger.

Yes because freezing is sooo evil.

Must be nice to have hours free during the day to wait in line for a burger.

You don’t need a job when the burgers are free, so get off your high-horse.

and how many of those in line do you reckon are unemployed? I know that a few of them might be after skipping half a day at work.

You’re a real fun-loving free-spirit who plays by his own rules, aren’t you. I can tell these things.

You KNOW that a few MIGHT BE?

Are they or are they not? Make up your mind.

A high percentage of uni students, I’m led to believe.

Anyway – surely the old two hour lunch isn’t dead and buried in this town yet, is it?
