More Soup For You!

, , , , | Right | March 15, 2021

When I am in high school, I often head off campus during lunch to get better food than the cafeteria has to offer. I have a late lunch, and one day, I decide to try a little café I’ve never been to before. I walk in the door around 1:15 and approach the counter, carefully scanning the menu board.

Me: “Could I please get a… tomato soup and a grilled cheese? And a large tea?”

Cashier: “Well, you can have tea, and there might be a sandwich in the cold case, but I can’t grill it.”

Me: “What?”

The cashier points at the big letters on the menu board.

Cashier: “We don’t serve hot food after 1:00 pm.”

Me: “Oh. Oh, shoot. I didn’t see that. Crap. I’m sorry, could you give me a sec to look through the cold case?”

Cashier: “Hmm, you know what? Screw it. That’ll be [amount]; do you want it to go?”

Me: “What?”

Cashier: *Shrugs* “You were nice about it.”

Me: “Oh! That’s really okay. It was my mistake!”

Cashier: *Already prepping my food* “The soup is still hot, and it takes two seconds to clean the sandwich press. It’s no trouble, really.”

Me: “Thank you so much!”

That was the best soup I ever had!
