My wife and I went to Red Lobster on Sunday to have a nice dinner as a bit of a break from tax season. As we were getting ready to leave, we were bundling up our leftovers to take home to eat later. I happened to look over at the booth next to ours, and someone had left about a half plate of shrimp and French Fries behind when they left. Then I made a run to the rest room, and as I walked back I saw another booth where the people had left behind several plates of food that they had not eaten. There was probably more food left behind than what my wife and I had eaten.

When I was growing up, my family would likely have been called the "working poor". We ate what was set before us, and cleaned our plates as nothing was wasted. I can remember having oatmeal and canned peaches for breakfast and lunch, with supper being creamed tuna fish with peas on toast. A McDonald's or a White Castle burger was a real treat every once in a while. Things got better as we got older, but still nothing was wasted. If it was on our plate, it was eaten. We had the same rule with our kids, if we went out, anything that they did not eat came home and was eaten the next day. What they did not finish one night, they had the next day.

Because of that, it really bugs me when I see so much food being wasted.
