No Need To Be So Saucy

, , , , | Working | July 23, 2020

As a young child, I hated sauces on almost anything, especially mayonnaise. As a result, I would always check what was on any new product I ordered.

I am in a store for a fast food chain I have not eaten at before on a road trip.

Me: “Excuse me. What’s on the chicken, cheese, and bacon burger?”

The cashier stares at me and speaks in a mocking tone.

Cashier: “What do you think is on it?”

Me: “Chicken… cheese… and bacon?”

She nods and sneers at me.

Me: “There’s no sauce?”

Cashier: “No.”

I had never felt so small in a shop before. Nowadays I would ask about specific ingredients if I was worried, but I hadn’t learned that at this point. The burger came out; it was drenched in mayonnaise and I could barely take a bite.
