this happened to me today at lunch.
Characters: Me, played by me.
Guy Behind Counter (GBC)
Other Guy Behind Counter (OGBC)
Time: About 12:30
After finding a prime parking spot, I enter Mr. Goodcents and approach the counter to order.
GBC: Half Turkey?
Me: Why yes, with
GBC: Swiss Cheese?
Me: No, I’d prefer cheddar please.
GBC: We have a rule here. No cheddar on turkey.
Me: No you don’t, I used to work here.
GBC: Okay, you’re right.
OGBC: What is he saying to you? Is he hitting on you?
Me: blank stare
GBC: I never hit on beautiful women.
And it goes on….
OGBC: What would you like on this?-
Me: Extra tomatoes
OGBC: So, no tomatoes?
Me: No, a lot please. (this is followed by OGBC putting one tomato in the middle of my sandwich)
Me: Um, a lot of tomatoes please. More than that.
OGBC: What else?
Me: A little mayonnaise, salt, pepper and oregano.
Okay, give me a break!!! And I have to go back there tomorrow.
And yes, I used to work at Mr. Goodcents. Once when I was 17 in the summer after my Dad said to me, "Find a job today, or you get no more money from me this summer." It was between that and Fluffy Fresh Donuts.
And then again in college. Nick and I both worked there one summer. And I must say, the free lunches weren't a bad deal.
