Dear Cheesecake Factory,

I really like your food, but unfortunately I am in the lower middle class, so can’t eat there except on special occasions (like once every other year or two). So I was writing to ask if you could come up some some more affordable options. Like maybe half portions on meals, or a “sampler slice” of cheesecake. This would help impoverished people like me and fat people too!

If you feel like it you could send me some “buy one, get one free” coupons, then I could at least eat there annually. Or you could mail me a slice of cheesecake or something. I like pretty much anything that’s chocolate (unless it has coconut in it).


Thanks,


Christopher L. Jorgensen

Commentary:

This reply was lightning fast! And it was polite, addressed my letter, and was signed. What more could you ask for? Well, that coupon for one! Mostly kidding here.

It’s probably not in their interest to come out with cheaper food. The place usually has a wait, so it’s not like they would be drawing in more people.

I do like this place, but man is it easy to lay down a lot of cash. A couple drinks, a couple meals, and a split dessert, and you’re talking real cash…and heaven forbid that you each get a dessert or an appetizer. The portions are a bit super sized as well. This is actually bad in my opinion. I have to drive a ways to get to this place, so with gas prices being what they are, I usually try to take in a movie, do some shopping, or run errands. Anything to justify the cost of the trip. Which means my leftovers become a breeding ground for all kinds of nasty things. I’m sure there’s a joke in that last sentcence, but I’m being serious. By the time I get home the doggy bag goes right into the trash more times than not.

Well, my comments were passed along. This happens to me a lot.
