One online forum I hang out on, all the netizens there were making fun of a newspaper article.
This article was talking about a McDonald's in Tampa that was setting up for Valentine's Day. The tables would have LED candles, waiters would take your order and bring your food, stuff like that.
The people on the forum thought this was funny.
And it's not all that uncommon. Around here, a White Castle did itself up for Valentine's Day the same way. Lots of fast food places do.
And they do it for the kids.
Teenagers don't have a lot of money, and don't have a lot of range they can travel. And making a romantic dinner at home is out. So this may seem cheesy, but it's also kids doing the best they can to be romantic.
Have a heart. Remember what it was like when you were a teenager, will ya?
