As big listener of music I get really frustrated when they randomly stop working and I have to pay another 50 bucks to listen quality music.

Since the 1970’s, fast-food restaurants have become the new way to eat. In our busy, New York minute lifestyle,  people do not have time to cook themselves a good meal, sit down at dinner with their family, or go to a good quality restaurant. So, people rely on fast food places for a quick meal. Most Americans that eat at these fast-food places though cannot help it. Whether it be because they are too busy at work, too poor to have a genuine family meal every night or because a mother of three cannot find the time to cook for her kids, people just don’t have the time to eat a healthy meal.
