|I'm a slave to the picture menu. Whenever I go out to eat, I always begrudgingly order from the picture menu. Even if I have something specific in mind, I'll always go for something I see in the menu. I could be thinking about steak all day, but as soon as I see a picture of pasta with seafood, I'm sold. I always feel like I've been taken advantage of. They trick me with their fancy pictures and their word-filled menus. They know I won't read all those words, but that I'll go straight for those mouth-watering displays of goodness. Some may ask, "Why don't you just not look at the pictures?" But that's just impossible. I can't look away. Like a moth to a flame, I'm uncontrollably led to the pictures.
On that note, I have a word of advice to restaurants: Use picture menus. Instead of just having a few pictures in your menu, have pictures of everything. Look at fast food places: They've been doing it for years. You can sell anything with pictures. #food
