A Breast Of Fresh Air

, , , , , | Right | December 12, 2019

(It’s a busy day and I’m by myself in the deli. I’m running between serving customers and trying to take chickens out of the oven. A man comes up and waits by the chicken warmer until I’m done serving everyone else.)

Customer: “Hi, my wife bought this chicken about an hour ago and there’s no breast.”

Me: “Oh, wow, I’m sorry. that’s really weird!”

(He hands me the chicken and I take a look.)

Me: “Um… You do realise it’s upside down?”

(I flip the chicken and yup, it’s upside down; the breast is there.)

Customer: “Oh… I’m so sorry… I’ll just take it back.”

Me: “Nah, it’s cold and squishy now. Take a fresh one anyway!”

(I took a fresh chicken out of the oven and gave it to him. It was worth wasting a chicken for the laugh he gave me. I just wonder what he said to his wife when he got home!)
