It is with a heavy heart it must be reported that your intrepid reporter kind of, sort of, in some way, OK, I was guilty of disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and verbal abuse of a minor. Allow me to plead my case:
I went to fetch lunch for DW and I at the Subway today. Against my better instincts, I went through the driveup rather than go in and watch them make the sammiches. I ordered a cold cut combo and a BLT for my beloved child bride. When I got home, mine was as ordered, she got a bacon, lettuce and tomato. Minus the lettuce and tomato. I could have handled it better,but I just lost it. Stormed back to the store, asked a kid behind the counter who was obviously saving up for his first razor what a BLT was. He said, bacon, lettuce and tomato.
‘So why did you only put bacon on it?’
‘We don’t put anything on it unless the customer orders it.’
‘Then why don’t you just call it a B?’
‘A lot of people order it that way.’
‘Look, kid, nobody comes in here and pays 6 bucks for a piece of bread with 2 strips of bacon on it. Don’t pee on my back and tell me its raining.’
Then another girl jumped in and stated that’s the way they were told… only put on what the customer specifies. She didn’t fare any better. It was lunch and there were about a dozen people inside. I don’t know how many were amused and how many were annoyed. At that point I didn’t much care. There was an older man behind the register and he said for what it was worth, he agreed with me. I just get fed up with really stupid people who think they’re worth $15/hour.
Apparently in Obamaworld, independent thought and common sense are frowned upon. Guess I won’t be going in that store again for a while.
Perhaps I’m an embarrassment to my family,but my grandmother didn’t suffer fools lightly either.
