It seems that the funniest things (at least to me) happen while out to lunch with friends…lately, anyways.
We went to a little restaurant that mostly specializes in sandwiches; BLT, grilled cheese, egg salad, etc. Usually, I get a salad because I am not a big sandwich fan. Yesterday, however, I decided to mix things up. I thought about getting a chicken salad.
For those of you that don’t know me, I am quite a picky eater, with a particular hatred for onions. I asked the woman behind the register, “What is in the chicken salad?” I was hoping for the usual, chicken, mayo, pickles, etc. However, she pondered for a moment, and then proclaimed “celery and seasoning!” Huh, celery and seasoning. Judging from her response, I must’ve had a puzzled look on my face. She then said, “I don’t know, I don’t work in the kitchen.”
Hmmm….I have worked at three restaurants that I can think of right now, and I had to know the ingredients in everything. I didn’t even have the window to the kitchen right behind me like she did. She could’ve just turned around and asked, “What’s in the chicken salad?” At this point, I had given up. Instead I opted for the following,
Bug sandwich…Ummm….delicious!!! Well of course, not really, I got a grilled cheese instead. Pretty clear on what goes into that.
