I didn't know you wanted guacamole with it?

    Recently stopped at a Subway, ordered a turkey bacon guacamole wrap.

    Started eating and realized it didn't have any guacamole. Went back up to the counter and told the "sandwich artist" I didn't get guacamole.

    She said "I didn't know you wanted guacamole."

    If that's true, why did I get turkey or bacon, or the wrap for that matter? Doesn't a turkey bacon guacamole include guacamole?

    She asked if she could just put it in a small cup, rather than unwrapping my wrap. Used her portion scoop (ice cream scoop thing) to put a scoop in a plastic cup.

    Went to the end of the counter, put them down, and said "That'll be a dollar seven."

    When I just stood there slack jawed she said "Sides of guac are a dollar."

    I said I'm not paying for something I should have gotten in the first place.

    Needless to say I didn't pay the dollar seven. And since it was in cups ended up dipping my chips in it after spreading a little on my wrap.

    Wasn't the best, but it was pretty tasty.

    LOL-

    You EXPECTED to get guacamole with your guacamole sandwich. Silly you!

    "What we have here, is a failure to listen..."

    Should have texted the order to her.

    OR perhaps she was using her 'artistic license' to create an "Un-guacamole" wrap.

    PETOG? People for the Ethical Treatment of Guacamole?

    Save the Guac-Guacs?

    It's getting too late...

    It worries me that people are leaving school without the ability to detect when something is totally illogical (Captain...). o_O

    Food places can certainly be hit and miss.

    They'll knock it out of the park with great food and service one day ... maybe even most days. Then one day it will be terrible food and/or service.

    Spouse's clinic once used Subway for some function. Everyone who ate it became violently ill some hours later.

    Fortunately spouse is vegetarian so she didn't touch any of it. She didn't get sick.

    That removed Subway from any sort of consideration for our house. Not that we where customers to begin with, it just insured that we never would be.

    The subtleties of life are lost on some.

    I had a similar episode, I don't think it was Subway.

    I wanted a BLT, for the purposes of illustration and clarity for those beyond our borders...BLT is Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato, I placed my order "BLT, double Bacon, mayo only"...at the register, I rec'd my sandwich, paid and went to my table. I unwrapped it, took a bite and noticed I only had a B with mayo only. The little fella tried to defend his actions by telling me I said mayo only...I told him the obvious, in order to make a BLT with mayo only, one had to actually put the B, the L and the T on the bread after the single condiment...mayo.

    I had a lady in front of me ordering that the other day, a fancy burger joint that makes them from scratch. She ordered one without the meat, stuck me as weird...bread, dressing and salad.
