(Our office has a meeting scheduled, and the receptionist is in charge of ordering lunch.)

Receptionist: “Can you please choose what you want on your pizza?”

Me: “Can you get me some wings instead?”

Receptionist: “Well, I’m not ordering individual meals for everyone, that is why we are doing pizza.”

Me: “Okay, how about [option #1]?”

Receptionist: “Oh, no, I don’t think enough people will like that. We have to think about what everyone wants to eat. It’s not just about you or me.”

Me: “All right, I am good with any of the toppings, just no onion, pepper or olives.”

Receptionist: “Oh, I just need to know what most people will want to eat. It’s just so hard to decide.”

(Day of the meeting:)

Receptionist: “I ordered five pizzas; these three are vegetarian.”

(Guess who was the one and only vegetarian out of the entire office? “Not about her and individual needs,” my butt!)
