When A Simple Salad Isn’t

, , , , | Right | July 14, 2019

(I work in a well-known sub shop. It’s set up where the customer goes down the counter and tells us what meats, cheeses, and veggies they want. A middle-aged woman approaches the counter to place her order.)

Customer: “I would like a turkey sub without the bread, please. Everything else on it but the bread.”

Me: “Well, uh… I’m not really sure how to do that, but I could make you a salad?”

Customer: “No! I need a sub without the bread. I can’t eat bread. I’m allergic to bread.”

Me: “Is it okay if I put your vegetables in a bowl with the turkey and cheese on top, then?”

Customer: “Yes. That’s all I really wanted. Why did you have to make this so difficult?”
