I haven't posted in such a long time because April is end of year at my job, I have been so busy, and so crazy that I haven't even had a chance to read my favorite blogs in over a week. Today is not much different, but this issue is important and I felt a need to write about it (to make me feel better).
The issue at hand is the fact that I HATE lettuce. I know you can all make fun of me but I really hate it, and the fact that it is common on sandwiches is a problem for me. So much so that when I order a sandwich I am always sure that I repeat (at least once) that I would like said sandwich with NO lettuce. Therefore, when I get a sandwich with lettuce I am very disappointed and I will bring it back and ask for another that does not have lettuce on it. Usually my friends at ABP know that I don't like lettuce and i have made it a habit to go there for lunch (usually 3 times a week). Today, because it was nice, I went across the street to Cosi to get a sandwich, I was kind of on a tight schedule, but I figured that I had enough time to grab a sandwich get back to my office and eat it before my meeting.
I ordered and the woman who took my order even repeated back to me the NO LETTUCE part, I took this as a good sign and when I got my sandwich a few minutes later I walked back to my store grabbed a bottle of water (answered a page) and went to my office to eat. I unwrap the sandwich and notice a string of shredded lettuce, SHIT, I exclaim as I open the wrap my sandwich is housed in, my buffalo chicken is covered completely in shredded lettuce and I have 10 minutes before my meeting now. I attempt to remove as much as possible and then eat the chicken (without the tomato I asked for) but I kept chomping into the crunchy leafy water strings that was the shredded lettuce in my sandwich and I gag. I'm serious lettuce makes me gag. I ended up throwing out half of my sandwich and munching on the chips they gave me that I was going to throw out. It made me VERY VERY MAD!
Yes, I really hate lettuce enough to post on my blog about it!
