#234: Fortuneless Fortune Cookies

And by this I am not referring to when the machine or $1-an-hour worker missed putting one in, but when the actual piece of paper says something like "You are well-respected by all who know you". I want a fortune cookie, not a flattery cookie. The point of the fortune is to instruct you in what to do to improve your life or give you information to look forward to and this statement of fact about yourself serves no purpose. Severity: 1

I haven't had a real fortune in my fortune cookie in ages. I usually get lottery numbers, advice, flattery, Chinese vocabulary words, and once I got a warning: Eat only when hungry or you will be ill. I ate extra on purpose to spite the fortune. The nerve of it, telling me what to do.
