What is your most depressing memory about food that you can remember?
Growing up, my family was poor. Also, my mom was terrible at cooking and portioning. Therefore, anytime she would make burgers for us, the beef patties would shrink from being over cooked and would end up being half the size of the bun.
I loved those things because when you're a kid, burgers don't happen every day- so when burger day does come around, it doesn't matter that your mom tried to split 1lb of cheap ground beef between the whole family. You just slathered that fucker in ketchup and asked for seconds.
I love my mom. It was her terrible cooking skills that inspired me to get into food and cooking because i knew there was more to the world than just salty overcooked beans and horrible wrecked pork chops.
What are your nostalgic depressing memories of food /ck/?

Tried out Wendy's for the first time today. It was the worst fast food experience of my life. Where do I begin?
- I got a baconator, large fries and a caramel milkshake. It cost fucking £6, more than a larger meal would cost at McDonald's
- I made the mistake of looking at the burger patties. They looked like a slightly less bad version of pic related. I really didn't want to eat them after that but I managed to stomach them
- It didn't even taste good. It was the most flavourless burger I've ever had, despite seemingly being at least 50% fat and sugar
- The milkshake came in a small cup and the top half of the cup was filled with whipped cream, meaning the amount of milkshake you actually get is miniscule
- I had to pay for the fucking ketchup
- I later went back for a "frosty" since I'd heard so much about them. It was nothing but a handful of M&Ms mixed in with flavourless soft-serve ice cream, the sort that comes out of those machines
The only good thing was the fries, which were crispy and delicious, even better than at McDonald's.
This was my first taste of authentic American fast food, and I won't be coming back.

Happened just now
>pay $2.75 for a coffee from a nice local coffee shop
>Ask for cream and sugar in my coffee when I order it
>"oh, it's right on the counter there"
Fuck that, I'm paying money so I can just grab the cup and go, I don't want to fuck around with pouring cream and sugar in and then throwing the stirrer in the trash myself, why the fuck can't the "barista" do it? They do that for you at Dunkin Donuts and Chic-fil-a, what's the point of a dedicated coffee shop if they can't even stir in what you want for you?
