The world is moving faster than it did fifty years ago.
I blame for Boomers for this.
Who, I would like to know, decided that fast food wasn’t fast enough unless is was eaten behind the steering wheel of an automobile?
Americans eat out inside fast food outlets and restaurants less than we did twenty years ago — but only because we’re too lazy to get out of the car. Compared to twenty years ago, we’re more likely to order from our car and even to eat inside the car, according to market research results announced by NPD Group.
What’s more, we’re less likely to be cooking or preparing our own food, because, over the same period, we have been buying more and more take-out food to bring home, or to bring into the workplace in place of a homemade sack lunch.
