98.3 TRY Social Dilemma: Should Adults Be Able to Order From the Kids Menu?


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Wednesday’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma came from Barbara. This is something that happened to her at a local restaurant. Check it out.

Hi Jaime.

My name is Barbara and I had something happen to me last week at a local restaurant (I won’t say which one) and I wanted to know what you thought about it and whether it would be a good social dilemma. I wanted to grab a quick lunch in the middle of the day. I had been running around with different work stuff, but I wasn’t that hungry. So when the waitress asked for my order, I ordered something off the children’s menu. The waitress took a minute and then said, “I’m sorry, if you don’t have a child with you, you can’t order off the children’s menu.” I explained that I wasn’t that hungry and that the child’s portion would be perfect for me, but still she wouldn’t let me do it. I asked for the manager and he said it was policy that adults could not order off the kids menu. I didn’t understand the policy, but it was clear I wasn’t getting anywhere with them so I just left and ended up going somewhere else. I thought this would be a good social dilemma though. Should adults be able to order off the kids menu? I think we should, what do you think?

Thanks Jaime. Keep up the good work

Well, I definitely think that adults should be able to order off the kids menu. What difference does it make. It’s just a smaller portion and you’re still paying. I’d love to hear what you think.

Do most restaurants have this as their policy? Have you ever tried to eat off the kids menu? Let us know on the NEWS10 Facebook page or let Jaime know on the TRY Facebook page.
