Re: Father's Day Price Gouging at Golden Corral

Let me clarify a couple of things because it wasn't clear. When I say "Dad", I meant the father of my children - my DH. He was more upset about it than I was which is why we left. I did not make a scene, I just asked questions and made a comment that it wasn't a holiday that companies paid time and a half for.
And for the meaning of the word "gouge" - this is from Websters:
1 : to scoop out with or as if with a gouge
2 a : to force out (an eye) with the thumb b : to thrust the thumb into the eye of
3 : to subject to extortion or undue exaction : OVERCHARGE
And, I still think that it is pathetic for a company such as this to charge more for their product just because they expect more people to come - WITHOUT adding more to their product - JMHO.
