Split the difference

The good thing about going to the same Chinese take-out on a likely-too-frequent basis is that when you come in the owners greet you like you're a celebrity.

The bad thing is that they know exactly what you'll order and follow it up with "You're having that again?".

The baked bananas with honey they throw in for free makes up for the the unavoidable cringing grimmace you make.

The Chinese place we used to frequent used to throw in prawn crackers as a cheery bonus. Somehow the opportunity never arose to say no. I'm a real seafood hater. Obsessively. Scarily. But I'm more afraid of offending a kindly Chinese gentleman and his effort to reward loyalty. Still, I might not have had anything to put in the bin otherwise.
