This meme pretty much sums up my life right now. In fact, I think this applies to most college students nowadays. I remember about a month ago, I went for a week without grocery shopping. My meals consisted of fast food, whatever my roommates would cook and leftovers from either of those two options Once I caught myself in this routine I immediately pulled myself together. Eating unhealthy is bad for you and it’s one of the quickest ways to get sick and/or overweight. So I knew what I had to do.
The next day I made the inevitable trip to the grocery store. I’d say it was coincidence that I was starving at this point, but we know that’s not true. I neglected going to the store for a while, but it’s not my fault! Buying groceries can be a hassle sometimes, especially when you shop at the biggest HEB in Texas.
Anyways, I was very hungry on this trip. I’ve been told not to grocery shop on an empty stomach, but it’s not like I had a choice. The reason you shouldn’t buy food when you’re hungry is because you’ll end up spending more than you normally would.
And that’s why I think this meme is so funny, especially when applied to a college student. It makes it seem like you live your life by grocery visits, and you only visit the store when you’re completely out of food. That’s my mentality behind this particular meme. Plus, that face that Mike Myers makes is hilarious.
Based on THIS; What is the ethical solution?
- There has been much controversy over the recently passed Obamacare. Domino’s in particular is feeling the pressure from the health care plan. Domino pizza officials claim the chain is going to have trouble complying with a mandate requiring fast-food restaurants to post the calorie makeup of their menu items. Apparently there are 33 million ways to sell a Domino’s Pizza, so putting calories in a menu for 33 million varieties is understandably difficult. Domino’s CEO, J. Patrick Doyle works with federal regulators to best handle the unique challenges presented to his business.
- The issue here is that the new health care plan is directly causing this business to struggle with management decisions. Some think that such mandates are unreasonable to ask of companies such as Domino’s. CEO, J. Patrick Doyle is most likely tempted to cut corners on counting calories because of the time and moneyit will save. This of course would be unethical because every business is to abide by the mandate.
- I believe that Domino’s CEO is handling the situation in the most rational and ethical way possible. Obamacare presented a roadblock for the company and instead of complaining or trying to fight it, Mr. Doyle is working with regulators and trying to adapt to the new changes. I commend him for his actions. Most people would cringe at the amount of work there is to do, but he’s embracing it and moving forward. More businesses should do business like Domino’s.
