The Kindness Combo

, , , , , | Right | November 24, 2020

My mom and I decide to go to my favorite fast-food restaurant for lunch. English isn’t her first language, so she asks me to order. I’ve never done it before since I am only fifteen.

Worker: “Hi, what can I get for you today?”

Me: “Um, can we have two veggie burgers, large fries, and a small soda?”

Worker: “Sure, would you like to add another soda to make that a combo meal?”

I don’t actually know what a combo meal is, and I turn to my mom and ask in Chinese. She didn’t hear the worker and has no idea what I’m talking about.

Me: “Um, I don’t know? No, thanks.”

Worker: “Okay, then. That’ll be [total].”

After we got our food, I checked the receipt and realized that two combo meals were added to our order and they actually saved us money. Thanks to that worker for helping us out!
