Thrill of the chase

I'll be travelling back up country with my mother tomorrow, from Devon to her home in North Wales.  Neither of us will fancy cooking after a ~7 hour drive, so she's saved a voucher for a free meal from a certain chain of roadside diners.
I don't particularly like fast food, but it'll do.

But there's a twist. In order to obtain two free meals, my mother wants us to go in separately and sit apart.

I'm in my mid-thirties. I earn a decent salary. I don't need to play these sort of games any more, and won't.

That may be my mother's underlying motivation: on some level, such penny-pinching is a game.
