New Mom, New Order

, , , | Right | October 12, 2019

(I’m turning myself in on this one. It is shortly after I’ve given birth to my first daughter. My husband and I only have one car, so after his paternity leave is up I am stuck at home. One day my husband decides to treat me to my favorite Mexican fast food chain only to get the order wrong. He forgot to say no onion, and in my exhausted new-parent stage I drive back to the drive-thru.)

Me: “Hi, sorry. My husband was just here, but he ordered my food wrong. I have the receipt and food and was just wondering if I could get it made with no onion, instead?”

Cashier: *very confused* “Uh, hang on. Let me get you a manager.”

(At this point, I can faintly hear her explaining the situation and the manager actually laughing.)

Manager: *on the headset to me* “Hi. So, let me get this straight. Your husband ordered your food wrong, we made it correctly — how he asked for it — and now you want a free replacement?”

(It then dawns on me how silly I sound. I honestly didn’t think it was that weird of a request until I heard it said back to me. I am so embarrassed I just sit there in silence.)

Manager: *sighing heavily and clearly frustrated* “Fine. But this is a one-time thing!”

(I pulled up and got my replacement food. Thank you, kind employees, for humoring a new, exhausted mom!)
