Toast The Rainbow

, , , , | Working | July 6, 2022

I work early mornings at a pharmacy. There is a bagel shop on the way to work, so when I have money to spare, I get a rainbow bagel. The default is usually to toast the bagel, but I prefer my bagels not toasted. I get up to the counter after waiting in line.

Me: “Rainbow bagel with cream cheese, not toasted.”

Employee #1: “Not toasted?”

Me: “Not toasted.”

I pay and I see a rainbow bagel go into their toaster from over the counter. I’m a little suspicious, but I shrug it off at first; maybe someone else got a rainbow bagel.

Employee #2: “Rainbow bagel with cream cheese?”

I go up and take the bag. It feels warm, but it is under a heat lamp.

Me: “Not toasted?”

Employee #2: Not toasted!”

I took my bag and left. When I got to work, I found that the bagel was not only toasted, it was BURNT. My rainbow bagel was more black than any other color. Even worse, I didn’t have time to go back and have them fix it. That was a long, hungry day at work.
