“Prejudice is a vagrant opinion without visible means of support.”
― Ambrose Bierce
“Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices–just recognize them.”
― Edward R. Murrow
“How you look at it is pretty much how you’ll see it”
Am I prejudiced? You bet your sweet bippy I’m prejudiced. But unlike the the blindly opinionated, I like to think my biases are born of experience, not bigotry.
Put another way: I’m not easily impressed. And I do carry a certain “been there, done that” attitude into most restaurants these days.
Does that mean I can’t be objective? No it doesn’t and yes it does.
Because I don’t look at places through the wide-eyed amazement of some amateur….or the credulous, bought-and-paid-for acceptance of someone just happy to be getting free food.
