Tonight my mom and I swung by Sonic and I ordered a Jr. Delux Burger and some tater tots. When I got home, I discovered two things about my burger: 1. The meat was missing and 2. There was a hair where my meat should have been.
I was a little annoyed but didn’t want to drive back to correct a $1 burger. But then my stomach growled and I really did want that burger, so back to Sonic I went.
On the drive over I was thinking about the situation and what I was going to have to tell them and started to laugh. Sure it’s gross but to not get any meat on a burger? Seriously, who gets orders like that? Oh right, I do.
I pulled in and pressed their little red button and the following conversation happened:
(perky high school girl voice) Welcome to Sonic. May I take your order?
(my dry sarcastic boss from Office Space voice) Yeah, I was just here and ordered a Jr. Delux Burger. It was missing the meat but it did come with a hair. So… I’d like a new burger. One with meat but minus the hair. That would be great. Thanks.
I would almost pay money to have been inside to hear me say that over the intercom. Imagining the looks on their faces will have to do I guess.
