OK, think instead that a new coworker says “I didn’t have lunch, I’m starving! What should I do for dinner?” If you send that person a link to LMGTFY “places to eat nearby” or hand him a fishing rod and a recipe book for cooking fish, that’s not a great response. There’s certainly a spectrum - you could say “this burger joint around the corner” or “come over to my house and I’ll cook for you.” To be clear, I think the vast majority of people on this forum (you included!) do these later things. I think you might say (yes, I realize this metaphor is getting super tortured), “Come over to my house - I’ve got all of the ingredients for a great meal, I’ll show you how to cook it,” which to be clear is super kind and above and beyond - you’re interested in people learning to cook for themselves, and that’s admirable (and again so I’m clear, from my perspective, your contributions here are constantly among the most useful on the forum). But for someone that was looking for options for fast food near work, this might seem a little aggressive.
Probably true. I’ve just made a couple of small edits to this end - take a look and let me know. I think it’s still quite concise, but adds just a little bit more social padding .
