    Don’t Be Tardis With His Order

    | AR, USA | Food & Drink, Geeks Rule

    (I am filling boxes for to-go orders. An order comes back without a name, so my boss gives me permission to write ‘Dr. Who’ on the box.)

    Boss: “We’ve got a to-go!”

    Me: “Sorry guys, I don’t have enough information on these grilled cheese sandwiches. And there’s not a name or phone number.”

    Boss: “Oh, shoot.”

    Me: “Should we wait until they get here?”

    Boss: “We’ll just give them cheddar. If they don’t want them, we’ll make them new ones.”

    (I write up the boxes with ‘Dr. Who’ and make the order. I see a young man picking up the no-name order. The following week…)

    Waitress: “We’ve got an order from Doctor Who!”

    Me: “Wait, really?”

    Waitress: “Yep. He told me on the phone that he liked what we did with the boxes.”

    (I check the ticket. It’s the same thing the young man ordered last week, with ‘Dr. Who’ written in the name spot. Looks like one of our regulars has a new nickname!)
