I picked up dinner Friday night from the little Jalisco around the corner. The place was crazy busy. Drive through was six cars deep so I went inside. It was bring your kids to work day for the waitresses. Glad we decide on ‘to go’. Anyway I ordered and I waited.
Meanwhile a lady comes in; she’d ordered over the phone. We both wait. Making small talk. My order comes first. He says I thought you were together. Nope.
She asks is your number 123-4567? Nope.
She looks over at me and says “watch this” She hits re-dial, the phone starts ringing. Doh! Haha. Profuse apologizes with offer to comp her meal. As I exit she says “it’s free? In that case I ordered …” 😂
I wish I could think that quickly on my feet.
As always more to come.
