Are You Team IHOb?

This is like Chuck E. Cheese all over again.


As you probably heard this week, The International House of Pancakes decided to shock the internet with a marketing act that did not have the best reaction. They flipped the "P" to a "B" in their logo and "B" stands for, wait for it....


Not breakfast, not brunch, not even bacon.They picked burgers to be part of their new slogan. The one thing on the menu that no one wants to eat was made their main marketing product. The one thing that they left out was that this was temporary for the next month. The response from people have not been great. The internet blew up over this change because in their eyes, it's a pointless and kind of dumb idea.

The only reason people are in uproar because of the acronym change being burgers. It's not that people eat at IHOP religiously but we eat there anyway. Imagine if Waffle House had taken the "waffle" out of their name and changed it to Breakfast House or if Burger King changed to Burger House. This is more shocking than when they changed the Chuck E. Cheese mascot to kid size.

Who would want to eat burgers in the morning? An average burger stuffed with sausage, egg, and a jumbo hashbrown. I rather have a plate of chocolate-chip pancakes with bacon on the side. There are over fifty different places within a twenty mile radius of the average neighborhood to go get burgers and only half of them are as good as their advertisements claim to be on TV. What's so different that we would chose to eat lunch at a pancake house. Who ever is the marketing coordinator who chose to replace pancakes with burgers needs to actually try the food on the menu.

So are you Team IHOP or Team IHOB? You be the judge.

The 10 Best Foods And Drinks At Disney World Restaurants And Where To Find Them

I'd be lying if I said I didn't just buy a few of them to take the picture.


If you know anything about Disney World, you know that they don't take the Mickey head lightly. It's on everything. Balloons shaped like Mickey, tiles in mosaics, pretzels, scones, fireworks — you name it, they probably have it. I recently went to Disney World in Orlando with my family and found that these were 10 of the best, photo-worthy snacks in Disney World, though not all of them are shaped like the legendary mouse.

1. Mickey Pretzels

Ellie Glover

These bad boys can be found at every park, wherever you can find a concession stand.

2. Mickey Ice Cream Bar

Ellie Glover

We got ours in Hollywood studios, but I also saw them in animal kingdom, so I'm sure they're everywhere.

3. Starbucks in the parks

Ellie Glover

The cups are too cute! Check out each park's Starbucks location to see the different souvenir mugs!

4. Mickey Scones

Ellie Glover

We got two, blueberry lemon and birthday cake. Both from the Main Street Confectionary in Magic Kingdom. They were to die for, plus absolutely adorable.

5. Mickey Cake Pop

Ellie Glover

OK, but really. how cute is this little guy?!? He is from the Sweet Shop on Main Street in Magic Kingdom as well!

6. Ice Cream Cones!

Ellie Glover

You can get them in Magic Kingdom with Mickey ears if you ask for a kiddie cone! This is from Epcot, and the serving size was MASSIVE.

7. Burgers from *literally* anywhere

Ellie Glover

I never met a burger on Disney Property that I didn't like. This one is from Planet Hollywood in Disney Springs!

8. Dole Whip

Pineapple in ice cream form anyone? Yeah. It's that good. This is from Magic Kingdom in its own stand over behind the Country Bear Jamboree!

9. Anything from the sweet shop

Erika Glover

The packaged chocolate chip cookies (also available at the counter) taste like unbaked cookie dough and they are absolutely amazing.

10. Cronuts

These are in Epcot in Canada!

10 Phrases Only Restaurant Workers Say, And What They Mean

Here are some terms I've learned in the kitchen after serving for a year and a half.


When I was in high school, I used to say that I could never work in a restaurant. I didn't think I had it in me.

But a friend got me a job as a hostess at a restaurant, and within a month the manager asked me to train to serve. Honestly believing that I couldn't do the job, I said yes and took on the challenge. I had a great server train me and within days I had gotten into the swing of things.

Now I've been serving for a year and a half, and if I've learned anything, it's the restaurant culture is unlike any other. Here are some terms I've learned in the kitchen.

1. "I'm weeded"

The interesting thing about this one is I only heard it once I moved to the South. I don't know if it was just the specific restaurant I worked at, but I didn't hear it in the North. I was very confused at first, but now it is one of my favorite terms.

Example: "I have seven tables. I'm weeded/in the weeds."

2. "Double-sat"

Servers are supposed to be "sat" one table at a time until the host has given one table to every server, then they start over and give everyone a second table, and so on. But things happen, sometimes people ask to sit in your section and all of a sudden you're double-sat. This also applies to triple-sat, quadruple-sat and so on.

Example: "The hostess double-sat me, and now I'm weeded."

3. "Heard"

This is one that I often accidentally apply to life outside the kitchen. When someone says something to you, us restaurant people acknowledge by saying "heard," sometimes including "heard that" or "heard" followed by repeating exactly what they said.

Example: someone says, "You got table 36." You say "Heard, table 36." This makes communication in an often hectic environment clearer.

4. "86"

86 simply means we are out of that item.

Example: "86 green beans" to which you would respond, "heard, 86 green beans." You get the idea.

5. "Behind/beside you!"

This is a great announcement to make particularly if you or someone else is carrying a tray of food. By shouting that you are "behind you" or "beside you," this more or less prevents getting bumped into and food getting spilled or anyone getting hurt. This is another phrase I carry over into everyday life, which I really shouldn't do.

Example: "Behind you!" "Heard!"

6. "Cut"

When you are cut that means you are not getting any more tables for the night. So, that means finish up the tables you do have, clean your section, complete your side work, print your checkout and go home! When you're having a particularly rough night, the best thing anyone can say to you is:

Example: "Hey, you're cut," to which you would likely to respond, either "heard, cut" or, more likely, "woohoo!"

7. "Side work"

Side work is all that annoying stuff you have to do besides actually waiting tables. This may be stocking the POS (Point of Sales) stations where the computer and receipt printers are, or it may be putting dishes away. It usually involves some sort of cleaning or stocking supplies, and you have to get signed off for completing it before you get to go home.

Example: "My side work tonight is to stock the drink stations." Ugh.

8. "Down"

When something is "down" that means one of two things. Either, we are running low on some supply and someone needs to get some more or a food is being cooked.

Example: "Down biscuits!" means someone better put some more biscuits in the oven stat.

"You got fries down?" is asking whether the fry cook has french fries in the fryer.

9. "Double"

To be a double means to work the lunch and dinner shift in one day, as opposed to just one of them. If you are a double you are supposed to get special treatment, which may or may not involve getting cut early in the dinner shift.

Example: "I am a double every Saturday."

10. "Closer"

At some restaurants, this may be called a "Team Leader," but at my current restaurant, it is called a closer. They are the person responsible for signing your checkout slip, which tells the manager you cleaned your section and completed your side work. A dinner closer is also responsible for shutting down the service stations at the end of the night.

Example: "Who is the closer tonight?"
