If you're one of those people that orders a ton of food and then only eats a tiny bit, you totally deserve it. Especially if he's the one paying for the meal.
Restaurants need to actually make portions meal-sized instead of 2 or 3 meal-sized, then. If you only order one plate of food and they give you enough that you could live off of it for 2 or 3 days, it's not your fault but theirs. As long as you save the food to eat over the next few days, at least. It's what I have to do at most restaurants because they give you an insane amount of food. I'm not fat enough that I can eat more than 600 calories or so in a single sitting, and that's the upper limit. 400 is usually enough for a single meal.
I was thinking more along the lines of the people that order a starter, soup or salad, and drink lots of soda before they actually get their meal. I've had friends who will fill up before their entrée gets to the table, and when it does, they eat maybe four bites before they say they're full. I agree that the proportions and calories you get at restaurants are too much, but to completely waste what someone else is paying for can be quite an insult.
Thats why God invented To-Go boxes, so we wouldn't fall prey to Gluteny. This comment is a joke anyway hehe But really, all restaurants have boxes... Right?
