This Obnoxious Menu Forces Diners To Do Trigonometry For The Price Of Their Meal

Raise your hand if you feel personally victimized by this menu:

For many people, dining out is meant to be a stress-free experience — a hardworking waitstaff is there to serve you, a chef is waiting to prepare your meal. All you have to do is show up hungry, eat your food, and cover the bill when you’re done.

A restaurant in Beijing, however, has done everything in its power to take a streamlined experience and make it stressful. Rather than listing their menu items in yuan (the currency in Beijing), the restaurant decided to present diners with complex math equations, thus forcing them to calculate the cost of their meal.

And if you thought it was just a little joke with simple-to-solve equations, think again: this restaurant went all out, and is foisting trigonometry on its hangry patrons. 

According to the Daily Mail, the restaurant owners have demonstrated sympathy for those who do not wish to, or are incapable of, solving the math problems, and have included a disclaimer at the bottom of the menu inviting customers to ask management if they need help working out the bill.
