So did I miss a small culture change?

I know that everyone *has* to have bottled water to buy all the time anymore (I can rant on that if you'd like) and can't drink tap...

But I didn't realize that I was denying people their rights by not letting them ahve food and drink everywhere.

When did this change?
I remember when it was gauche to eat in public/on the go (minus exercising or a restaurant)--I sure don't want to go back to that but I"m also getting tired of twits who will DIE if they can't have water.
(please to note, there is actually an exception, I have a student who has to have it becuase of a salivary gland issue.  we're working w/ her.  But I still can't let her have it in a lab because, hi, might get contaminated and DIE)

    I think this changed about the same time people started taking their dogs everywhere with them.

    here's what also bugs me about this...
    there's no good science-y evidence that we 'need' 6-8 glasses of water a day.

    In fact, it's as debunked as Pauling's BS w/ Vitamin C.

    We are all getting more and more casual all the time.  I'm afraid that within 20 years we'll all be showing up for work in boxer shorts with a bag of cheetos hooked to the (overly stretched) elastic wasteband.

    Maybe you're right - maybe this is why I see so many people in jeans at funeral homes, and in one weird instance on a snowy, cold evening, a young man in a t-shirt with ripped off sleeves, mesh shorts, and sandals.

    I don't like to wear things to work that show any shoulder, and I was told by boss lady that it wasn't a big deal.  I have tiny standards...teeny ones, but please let me keep them. 

    Also, I feel better when I drink more water, but I also just refill my water from the fountain.  Germ(ans), be damned.

    Hmm.  Interesting thought.  Especially since it's a cardinal sin to actually be hungry anymore.

     "Thou shalt not be peckish, for thou will covet thy neighbor's burger and take the Lord's name in vain.  For there is only one God.  And He is not Quarter Pounder"

    Seriously, this is why so many churches have gone the casual big box route - people can't be bothered to put on a real shirt and put down their big gulp long enough for traditional church anymore.  People are "indimidated" by the fanciness of people in real clothes and the inavailability of a table for their soda for a whole hour, so churches have to set up chairs in a gym where people can come to a "comfortable" flip-flop and t-shirt version of church.

    Last week a woman freaked out on h and I at a church dinner because we didn't have anymore diet at the bar. She said, "OMG! There are people here who are diabetic!" those same people were drinking wine like it was going out of style.

    We're in the age of "me, me, me.. I'm so unique and different and special because of my dietary needs and restrictions."
