We needed to get gas in the truck and in the car. We drove to Smith’s and used our rewards card with $1.50 off per gallon and using the 35 gallon max got both of them mostly filled up. Saved us $52.50. I mentioned this, in part because we drove both cars to go out to eat tonight, just a few blocks away from Smith’s at Apollo Burger.
John and I had each have enjoyed lunch at Apollo Burger a couple of times with different people. I’d only gone through the drive through, and had remembered good onion rings. Tonight I walk in wondering why they are named Apollo. Then I saw baklava on the menu. So I ordered some. But still wondering, I asked. The worker noted that they also have gyro and other sandwiches. I didn’t see those on the menu on until after I had ordered my Philly cheese steak or I might have tried a gyro. But I really like Philly cheese steak, so maybe not.
As we were eating, I was watching who I perceived to be the manager hovering around. I was curious whether this was a one local restaurant only. Turns out there are eleven locations in Utah, but still comparatively speaking, a pretty local place. And recommended by me.
While we ate, I told John about an article I read about income disparity in the United States (thanks to a Facebook lead). Article link is here.
And we discussed money and making money. I think I feel okay about money unless I start comparing myself to others. My perception about saving $52.50 on gas definitely changes if I compare myself to someone who lives on just $200 per week, or to someone who makes $625,000 per week.
