A guy made a comment about my article highlighting Chipotle’s recent decision to raise menu prices in order to cover some of the cost of higher wages, pointing out that the CEO made some $38 million last year, noting “I doubt he needs it.”
The first thought that popped into my head was, ‘how exactly do you know what Brian Niccol needs?’ My second thought was, ‘what does that have to do with anything?’ And my third thought was ‘dude, you don’t have a clue how business works.’
Hurricane season started this week. That means those of us who live in Florida are in preparedness mode – or at least we should be.
For you landlocked readers, the notion of a hurricane kit is probably foreign to you. But for those of us who live in hurricane-prone coastal areas, updating the hurricane kit is a right of passage from spring into summer.
As a dad, I have to confess to delivering my fair share of dad jokes. You know what I mean, right? I’m talking about those jokes that make the kids’ eyes roll into the back of their heads and elicit groans from the wife.
Let’s be honest; dad isn’t funny. And that’s what makes dad jokes so funny.
So to kick off your weekend, I bring you some dad jokes related to gold I plucked off the interwebs.
So, last Monday was tax day.
I don’t know about you, but I had to write a big check. But I took solace in the fact that I’m helping create a more civilized society!
Monday is tax day. That means I have to send a big check to my overlords – a sacrifice to the gods of government if you will.
Of course, sacrifice to the gods is nothing new.
If you are a regular Fun on Friday reader, you know I love sports. Hockey is my favorite followed by football. My favorite teams are the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Well, all of those worlds collided in a moment of sports harmony this week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski joined Lightning players at their practice. Gronk even donned the goalie pads. (He showed a pretty solid glove hand.)
Gronkowski even brought along the Lombardi Trophy. Lightning players posed for pictures with the Super Bowl hardware.
The other day a friend of mine asked me, tacos or burritos?
My response: why not both?
Unemployment is at 6%. Tens of thousands of people apply for unemployment every week (744,000 last week alone). The US government is spending trillions of dollars to “stimulate” the economy. But restaurants in northeast Florida can’t find enough workers to open every day.
Does this sound a nutty to you as it does to me?
