This is the first badge I earned (September 2017) and I am the most proud of Maverick because it recognizes people who are authentic. I go my own way. I do my own thing. I am neither a follower nor a sheeple (baa-aah). The world used to call us stubborn, but now we are Mavericks.
Why? Probably because the Me Generation is all about instant gratification and easy tasks. Suddenly it’s cool not to follow The System. They are foolish children, in my opinion, 35 year old foolish children. Ok, Grampa, settle down.
Anyhow… this badge is earned by frequenting 1- or 2-star establishments. I specifically earned it for eating at a burger place that has 1.3-stars after 100 reviews. That’s bad. You really shouldn’t eat at a place like that because you may get poisoned- but I did, so I’m a Maverick (:
Remember: check-in, eat, then review. That’s the sweet spot to earn Yelp Badges.
