Behind The Blanket Apologies

, , , | Right | January 1, 2020

(I am on a road trip with some friends and we stop for fast food at a place that brings the food to your car. We wait for twenty minutes to get our food and realize we didn’t receive one order. We call back in and let them know, and they say they’ll remake it. Another fifteen minutes later, I ask where the food is, and they say they weren’t told about missing food. I am furious and angrily demand our food. Finally, after another ten minutes, we receive the food and go on our way. An hour later, I realize something.)

Me: “Guys… is now a bad time to tell you I found the other sandwich?”

Friend: “Are you kidding me?! We waited an extra half an hour and you got mad at a worker all because you lost your stupid sandwich?!”

Me: “He placed it behind the blanket! I didn’t see it! And he didn’t even say anything when he came back with the new food. I’m sure he could see it from where he was standing!”

Friend: “I don’t care! You should have asked instead of assuming they didn’t give it to you! You were the wrong one here, so do something about it.”

(I ended up calling the store to tell them what had happened and apologize. They laughed and said they were just happy I’d called, so they didn’t ask for me to pay for the extra sandwich. I’d never done anything like that before or since, so I was super embarrassed and still am. But I thought my stupidity belonged on this site.)
