    Sunday Not-So-Fun Day

    , | Illinois, USA | Coworkers, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (My boyfriend and I are regulars at this restaurant, and as such, our orders are fairly well known.)

    Me: “I want a Number 1, with cheese, only ketchup and mayo, medium, with a pineapple smoothie.”

    Cashier: “Okay, that’s a Number 1, with cheese, only ketchup and mayo, medium, with a pineapple smoothie. I should have this memorized by now!”

    Me: “If we keep coming in here every weekend, you will!”

    (While my boyfriend places his order, I go sit down and wait for our food.)

    Cashier: *to the grillworker* “This sandwich is supposed to be only ketchup and mayo.”

    Grillworker: “Okay, gotcha.”

    (A few minutes later, I hear the cashier talking to the grillworker again.)

    Cashier: “This isn’t what I asked for. Only ketchup, only mayo, cheese. This is that sandwich, without lettuce.”

    Grillworker: “Right, that sandwich, without lettuce.”

    Cashier: “No. Only ketchup, only mayo, with cheese.”

    Grillworker: “Okay, I’ll fix it.”

    (This goes on for awhile. Eventually, our order comes up, and my sandwich is correctly labeled. What did I find when I opened it? No lettuce, no mayo, ketchup, mustard, and pickles. I show it to the cashier.)

    Cashier: “Why is it that they stick me with the idiots on Sundays?”

    Me: “Your employer does that to you, too?”
