Weird Behavior #16: Deep Fast Food Conversations

I guess it’s because of the US’s lack of a true cafe culture that this came about. I don’t really know how long it’s been going on but when I’m chowing down on a burrito, hamburger, or fried rice in a glorious meal that is maybe 5-10 minutes of eating at most, I often look around and see people having a deep discussion about well, something. It’s not to say that people can’t have deep discussions. I for one encourage this and think that we should really ponder the economy, politics, and racial equality whenever possible. I just raise the question as to why people do it in a place where someone is yelling, “Twenty five! Veinte y cinco!” every three minutes? I would say that even talking about such things over the phone may be a more fitting setting.
Personally, I like the cafe for such discussions as that’s what it’s really for. But maybe that’s just me. Maybe there is an earthiness and grittiness that permeates one’s thinking while using a bathroom with phone numbers to transsexual hookers. Maybe I’m missing out. Maybe my five minutes at Pancho Villa or Chef Jia have been nothing more than a series of wasted five minutes all my live that haven’t allowed me to, “get it”. Or maybe I’m just too busy stuffing my face as fast as I can to wallow in greasy glory and don’t give a damn what my head is telling me in the meantime.
