7. Yes, that's part of it.
Also, flavorless monicatti for the masses.

8. Incredibly, that pizza hasn't been delivered yet.
Not like it was a first offense either. Probably not even the first offense today, knowing that particular PUMAbot.

4. That depends... Do I get a discount on the unlimited soup, sald, and breadsticks deal?
Because if I DON'T get a deal on it, I'd only sacrifice my beard and sideburns for the Olive Garden and its vision for America.

15. Seriously, on The Olive Garden.
I would be very happy if they did away with the endless salad and breadsticks. We've eaten at The Olive Garden many times since back when they first opened. For some reason everyone gives us Olive Garden gift cards. I know we can use them at Red Lobster but we actually consider Red Lobster to be even more lame than The Olive Garden. After a while we started taking the gift cards in asking for a refund. They became very angry and would seldom comply with our request.

What is wrong with The Olive Garden? The quality of the breadsticks is the worst! They are almost inedible. Why not just allow each diner two 'good' breadsticks instead of a whole bunch of these horrible inedible ones? The only answer I can come up with is that they have such poor breadsticks hoping you will eat fewer. As they are, we will eat none. Also, every time they come up with a good new dish they soon take it off the menu. We loved Chicken Castalina but it is gone. Chicken Fontina-gone. The Seafood Alfredo used to be delicious but they changed ingredients. Now they use very poor quality scallops instead of crawfish tails. Actually I don't believe they are even real scallops but pieces of monkfish cut into scallop shapes. Another complaint, their Alfredo sauce has declined over the years. They now use cheap substitutes for the real butter, rich cream and freshly ground real Parmesan cheese they used to use. These changes are readily apparent to the consumer. I guess they will see how far down they can take the diner before there is a shortage of patrons.
