That Order Is Toast

, , , | Working | August 28, 2018

(I am at a chain choose-your-own sub shop where you have the option of putting your sandwich in the toaster. I don’t like toasted bread.)

Sandwich Maker: “Toasted?”

Me: “No.”

(He proceeds to put the sandwich in the toaster, anyway. It’s the lunch-rush, and I’m not one to make a big deal out of something so ultimately trivial, so I just shrug it off.)

Sandwich Maker: *to woman behind me* “Toasted?”

Woman: “No.”

(He also puts that sandwich in the toaster. The woman and I share a look and a shrug, but it’s the lunch rush and we don’t want to make a hold-up. The next time I’m at the sandwich shop, it’s the same sandwich maker, and again, he asks me if I want my sandwich toasted. I tell him. He toasts it, anyway. Fast forward to yet the next time I’m at this sandwich shop.)

Sandwich Maker: “What would you like?”

Me: “I’d like a [sandwich] on [bread] with [cheese], and not toasted!

(He makes the sandwich beginning.)

Sandwich Maker: “Toasted?”

Me: “No, I don’t want it toasted.”

(He moves towards the toaster.)

Me: *very loudly and firmly* “I said not toasted!”

(He turns around and looks at me like I’ve just flipped out for no reason.)

Sandwich Maker: “You could have just said.”
