Your Dad Is Not Always Right

, , , | Related | March 2, 2018

(Due to a crazy work schedule, once or twice a week I end up ordering lunch online from a sub shop near my house. It’s super convenient for me, but one time they don’t check their online ordering system and my order isn’t ready when I come in. It’s not a big deal, but I do mention the incident to my parents that evening when we’re talking about our days.)

Dad: “Did they comp you?”

Me: “No.”

Mom: “Did you get anything for free?”

Me: “No.”

Dad: “Did you ask?”

Me: “No.”

Dad: “Why not?”

Me: “Because they apologized and made my sandwich for me. I didn’t want to raise a fuss over a misunderstanding. I was irked because I left my phone in the car and couldn’t pull up the confirmation email right away.”

Dad: “Next time they do that, ask for a free cookie or something.”

(There has been one time since then that the sub shop didn’t have my order ready when I went to pick it up. I still didn’t raise a fuss, but I always make sure to bring in my phone, just in case.)
