Caesar Would Feel Betrayed

, , , , | Right | November 19, 2019

(I work in a franchise that specializes in healthy foods. Our current special is a Caesar salad. An older gentleman waits for me to help another customer, then comes up to the register.)

Customer: “Hi. As an old English teacher, I just wanted to let you know, you spelled Caesar wrong on your sign. It should be C-E-A-S-A-R, not C-A-E-S-A-R. I wouldn’t have said anything, but other people have told me about it.”

Me: *knowing full well that this is the correct spelling, but not wanting to get into it* “Sorry, sir, it’s a sign from corporate; we’re just a franchise so we can’t change it.”

Customer: “Well, I think you should let them know. You’re smarter than that.”

(He walked away.)
