Unpopular Opinion: Why Brunch is the Worst
Brunch is literally the worst. Here's why...
-one- It's indecisive.
It's neither breakfast nor lunch. It's an ungodly union of both. I'm already indecisive so I don't need anything else in my life that is.
-two- It's too current.
It's one of those buzz words you hear all the time, mostly by yuppie people at country clubs. It's popular and trendy and I hate it.
-three- It's not satisfying.
I'm either in the mood for breakfast (rarely since I kind of don't like breakfast foods) or lunch but not both. So, no, I do not want a chicken salad sandwich with grits and sausage egg muffins. If I want lunch, my tastebuds are set on lunch. Not grits and quiche. I don't want to eat my Chef Boyardee ABCs and 123s with scrambled eggs and biscuits. That's disgusting.
-four- It's bourgie.
-five- It's usually ridiculously expensive.
People think they can overcharge for breakfast when it's at 11 AM. NO MA'AM! I see you! I see what you're trying to do. That sausage biscuit was $4 at 7 AM and now it's $11.95?
That's all. Hopefully I've made a completely sound and unbiased argument for why brunch is the worst. :)
Also, this does exclude breakfast for dinner. I often enjoy breakfast for dinner because it's completely breakfast (read: not some hybrid of foods) just at a different time of day.
