Things I don’t understand but thanks to Wikipedia now do

Obviously, this list is not comprehensive.  In fact, it’s just one thing.  But I am considering making this a regular column. 

What is Ruth’s Chris Steak House?  I mean, I know what it is, but why on earth does it have that bizarre and difficult-to-say-without-spitting-all-over-myself name?  Well, after years of headscratching, I went to the all-knowing Wikipedia and learned that a woman named Ruth bought a steakhouse in 1965.  The name of the steakhouse she bought?  You guessed it, Dominick’s Steak-and-Shake.  Just kidding.  Chris Steak House.  No possessive apostrophe, apparently.  So now we have the oddly named Ruth’s Chris Steak House, which must have seemed to make sense at the time.  By the way, I think steakhouse should be one word. 

Any other mysteries you’d like me to solve by using Wikipedia?  Let me know because I’m on it!

Happy birthday to my mom, @marylloyd9165. She’s given me more than I deserve and tolerates me more than she should. At this point, I know it may be more because I have some control over when she sees her grandchild, but I’ll take it. She’s the strongest woman I know and my role model. Happy birthday, mom. We love you! ❤️❤️❤️ . . . And I’d give anything to look that cute at any age. #mymommyhero #moms #mymom #myrolemodel
Damage. @costco contracted with #InnoveILogistics to deliver our @lgusa washer & dryer. But instead of delivering the products we paid for, the @costco delivery company, apparently run by @sears crashed into our house, damaged it, and sped off with our appliances. Ugh. #costco #customerservice #whatismytimeworth #disrespectful #damage #damageclaim #housedamage #nodelivery #LG #disappointed #shouldvegonelocal #searsdelivery
