    So, they decided to convert a cupholder into a fry holder.
    Not really laziness, so as much as convenience.

    I do see someone wanting to keep their vehicle neat though.

    I fail to see how this is lazy. This was made so that drivers wouldn`t have to keep taking their eyes off the road in order to locate their fries somewhere in the middle console. This is actually really a safety bonus. And plus it knocks off three seconds to get the fries to my mouth by cutting out looking for them! Woot!

    It`s still in the middle of the console. It`s an insert so fries fit better.....-___-;

    Let me make your Americans feel better about this post. 85% of the population of the UAE (the country where Dubai is) is obese. Why? Because here you can order one Pepsi - yes, one - which costs 30 cents and it will get delivered to your doorstep. More? There`s a mall here called The Reef Mall, which at the entrance, has a 6 step escalator. Yes. An escalator for 6 steps only. Right NEXT to it is are 6 steps to walk up. But no, 99% of people going into the mall WALK TO THE escalator to take it instead of taking the 6 steps which span the entire length of the entrance.

    The only thing you should do in a car is drive with both hands on the wheel, your eyes on the road checking your mirrors every 5 seconds and properly signaling your intentions to other drivers in a courteous fashion. And never, ever, ever, eat french fries.

    I don`t see the correlation between holding your fries in a plastic fry holder and obesity. It`s obviously meant for use while driving, as it is pictured in the cup holder of a car. And I`m going to buy the fries if I have one of these or not. There`s no laziness here, since I wouldn`t be holding them anyway, as I`m driving. So, instead of them sitting in the bottom of the bag, they get their own special place.

    Maybe we`re saying that anyone who eats fries often enough to actually use one of these is eating too many fries?

    I went for a bike ride yesterday and almost got hit by two cars. One guy was on his cellphone and the other had FRIES in his hand, ironically. One of those things were illegal but they both impaired driving.

    MAKE HANDS FREE FRIES THE LAW!

    That was designed for a semi truck, not a car. Pilot is a chain of truck stop gas stations, they sell all sorts of stuff for the drivers. Special coffee makers, cook stoves, all sorts of things. Yeah, people could probably use them in a car but that wasn`t the target market here. The drivers don`t get a lot of time to stop and eat so things like this are helpful to them.

    halfpintpoo- I don`t know how it is back east, but in California "distracted driving" is a ticketable offense. So if you are driving like an idiot and you get pulled over the cop can give you a ticket for eating fries.

    Yeah I`m not sure why it is more lazy to use your cupholder rather than your lap. I guess American`s are supposed to accept the challenge of french fries falling on the floor and reaching to grab them while driving.

    I find the posts going "Well how else are you supposed to eat fries in the car?" quite hilarious. Why do you need to eat fries in the car? Why do you need to eat in the car at all? I understand this for people who drive for a living, but most of us can get through even a few hour drive without needing to eat.

    no, this isn`t America.

    This is a small population of America that decides they`re too lazy and their cupholder just doesn`t hold those fries properly. This is why you rarely see products like these, and when you do they`re usually at Walmart or other cheap stores. (Not bashing on Walmart people, just not my place of choice...).

    You can be fat without eating fries and burgers everyday.

    You can be thin while eating fries and burgers everyday.

    These posts aren`t really funny anymore.

    Watch the documentary Fat Head. It proves that fast food is not the sole problem, as the man lost weight on a fast food diet. Eating bad is only one factor, what you do in the other 23 hours you`re not eating has a much larger effect.

    This is sold at a pilot store, which is a truck stop. This is a product for truckers, so yes, they would eat while driving a lot. Its not like they sell these at walmart, its a niche product sold at a niche store.
