This Smoothie Has A Silver Lining

, , , , , , | Working | October 17, 2019

One day on my lunch break at work, I went to a smoothie place to have a fairly light meal. I had been there a few times before, and it was always good.

This time, the smoothie I got didn’t taste as good as usual, but I didn’t think much of it until a few hours later when I began to throw up. The next day, I had to call out of work due to food poisoning.

The smoothie was the only thing I had eaten that day except for a bagel in the morning, so the culprit was pretty obvious. The next time I was around I went in to inform the manager of what happened. I mainly wanted to let them know, but I was not surprised when they refunded the smoothie.

Today, about two months after and figuring that it was just a fluke that time, I came back and tried to get another smoothie, only to be told that the manager before had flagged my card and I was banned from the store. After I pressured them a bit I was told that the reason I was banned was due to fraud.

Maybe the manager actually did me a service there.
