@Pippinwhite -- I've had a tasty meal or two from a gas station hot bar myself. What really got under my skin about chicken nuggets is these "let do" parents who wouldn't teach their children how to eat a variety of foods at restaurants. No, they would stop and get the kids a Happy Meal before they went to a restaurant because the kids wouldn't eat anything but chicken nuggets and mom and dad weren't up to the challenge of insisting they try new things. They took the line of least resistance.
I remember seeing a mom at a Chinese buffet, trying to get her child to eat the sweet and sour chicken by telling her it was chicken nuggets, straight from the home of the Golden Arches. They were just misshapen, so they couldn't sell them. Kid was having none of it.
My mom would have taken me to the bathroom and instructed me that I was either going to find something to eat on the buffet without complaint, or I would get a glass of water at the restaurant and a PB&J sandwich when I got home, that she wasn't cooking another meal. And that if I gave her any lip about it, I would be immediately taken to the car and punishment would ensue.
Just don't get me started about kids who only eat chicken nuggets, fries and plain hamburgers "cut in half." Sigh.
